    Nice few days away. Highly recommend!!!

    Lovely stay, very nice gym, swimming pool, spa, steam room and golf course. Even participated in a couple of yoga classes. Have a small suggestion that you could maybe hire mountain bikes and have a ride around the area(they may already do that, i didnt bother to find out). Overall very enjoyable break and thank you to the lovely staff

    Pretty good stay!

    This place is difficult to find if you’re not from the area. Sat nav had me in country lanes! Persist with it though because it’s a pretty decent stay! Check in staff were helpful, friendly and funny. Room was a twin unfortunately the only one available where I’d booked at short notice. Beds not comfy for me but mostly personal preference. Room was very clean and tidy. Parking took me by surprise Huge spaces which is Nice. Facilities were good, used the pool and steam room. Went to the restaurant for an evening snack, moderately priced.

    Great staff

    Staff were great, helpful and friendly , even after we were all evacuated when the fire alarm went off during breakfast. On return they raced round ensuring everyone received another fresh hot breakfast. The pool and spa pool were lovely .Bed was comfortable with lovely clean white linen. Towels were lovely and soft. All the surfaces in the room had a sort of sticky feel to them , but it may have been the antibac they were using. Iwas there for 2 nights and I either got used to it , or it disappeared. The grounds were lovely as was the terrace where you could sit with your drink , or meal andlook out on to the golf course. Really enjoyed my stay,i'd definitely go back again.

    Great location

    Usually stay here when working in the Essex area and a great place. 1st visit here for many months and the reception and bar area are looking good after a refurb. I think the rooms are maybe inline for a face lift and when this is complete it will be superb. At the moment the rooms are ok. If you like sport they have all the right channels

    Great room with nice view of the golf course

    Very nice location, hotel was nice and tidy and the room we had was amazing - the Garden Room. Very large room and quite cozy. The bed was comfortable and the bar in the main reception area was decent for breakfast. Grwat service and everyone was really nice. The hotel doea need an upgrade, especially the sink with separate taps and the hallways. Other than that we had a great stay and the view and the room itself really made our weekend
