The White Hart Hotel is ranked number one on Trip Advisor for hotels in Witham


Our 18 individually designed, centrally heated bedrooms are furnished with style and relaxation in mind. There is a choice of King-size, twin or single beds, with a warm quilt, a throw and cool cotton sheets.
All rooms have ironing facilities, hairdryers, colour TV with free view and a refreshments tray. Our rooms show the character and age of this fine, 14th Century Inn. Our rooms are popular with business customers, people wishing to explore the local area, those flying to and from nearby Stansted Airport (25 min drive). We make a great layover if traveling to or from Harwich or Felixstowe ports too.


We take great pride in our rooms. The hotel might be over 600 years old and full of character, but we try to give you every comfort possible. See The White Hart Hotel rooms we offer for yourself.
