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
