Dear Sir, We appreciate your comments, however it is disappointing to see you felt the need to write this review. When you stayed with us before, your stay wasn't what you had expected it to be. On checkout the Hotel Manager apologised and offered you to come back and stay with us again, complimentary, so you could have a better...

Looked forward to some rest and relaxation after reviewing their website. In reality the pictures over promised and the place under delivered. The rooms and the spa were not worth the money paid and in need of redecoration and updating. We were kept up till 3am overhearing conversations from the adjoining rooms due to the paper thin walls. The food...

Really disappointed with our stay at the Essex. A spa weekend was advertised and the pictures looked beautiful on the website. However when you get there, the hotel is situated in the middle of a business Park and the hotel itself is separate from the main building and facilities. The bedroom was OK, clean, the bed is only a standard...

This place reminds me of the fictional motel that Alan Partridge lived in. It's very dated, especially the bathroom. The bed and TV are quite small. Room service finishes quite early (20.30 from memory). We also had some very noisy neighbours. On the plus side the staff are friendly and it's very affordable. There is a spa/gym though I didn't...

Here for a local wedding, never again! I have never been in such a room that is so unwelcoming or void of any comfort! Try the local travel lodge! Not one 5* hotel in the whole of Essex! Food: If your happy with burgers, pizzas etc it's fine. Any thing more nourishing, try the Green Man.

A great place of you want to be off beaten track. Place is situated near an industrial site. The place is set in around 150 acres of land. Golf courses tennis courts and a good 2 mile and more walks if you like the outdoors. The food is of high standard but not anything over the top. The prices were...

A friend and I finally booked our night away at the spa hotel! We only paid £89 for our package which included: one nights stay, a two course dinner and half a bottle of wine each, continental breakfast, access to the spa on both days, robes, towels and a treatment. When we arrived on the Saturday morning there were children's...

We stayed here following a local wedding. The room was fine but nothing special and the bathroom was a little tired. Tea, coffee and biscuits were nice. We would have liked to have breakfast and would have given a higher rating if it was included but it would have added another £20 to the room bill so we chose not...

Hi Holly an Nick, Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review regarding your time spend here with us.

The hotel is based in a strange location in the middle of an industrial area and next to a golf club. The rooms are quite basic and a little tired. The food in the restaurant or bar is not typical high quality cuisine. It's more like pub food. The Spanish member of staff is friendly and sociable.
