Whether you're looking to keep on top of your fitness regime or want somewhere safe to splash about with the kids, booking a hotel with a pool adds convenience and fun to your break. Hotels with pools once used to be seen as exclusive and luxurious. However, today, more and more hotels are offering this facility, from unassuming guest houses, to affordable chain hotels. Essex is a popular county to visit at any time of year and taking the time to find a hotel with a pool ensures that you can enjoy yourselves, even if the weather's against you.
Historic Colchester is a busy and beautiful part of the county. Packed with attractions such as the Mercury Theatre, Colchester Zoo and the East Anglian Railway Museum, there's something of visitors of all ages. However, if you'd prefer to spend the day in your hotel or the rain's set in, hotels such as the Holiday Inn Colchester, offer fun on-site. The Holiday Inn Colchester's indoor pool is part of the Spirit Health Club, which also includes a gymnasium and treatment rooms. A family-friendly hotel, the Holiday Inn's pool is ideal for those travelling with their families.
For convenience and class, the Radisson Blu Hotel London Stansted Airport is up there with the best. Close to Stansted Airport, rail links and just a stone's throw from the nearby M11, it's easy to get to and offers top-end accommodation. The hotel's indoor pool is perfect for those wanting to get in a few lengths at the start of the day and there are even swimming lessons for children. If you happen to be visiting Essex for a special occasion or a treat, the Indulgence Spa offers a range of treatments and therapies, designed to leave you refreshed and relaxed.
However, hotels with pools aren't the monopoly of chain-lead hotels. The Dunmow Guest House in Dunmow is a guesthouse with a difference. In addition to having a heated, indoor pool, the hotel also boasts its own private cinema!
Booking a room in a hotel with a pool is a great way to ensure that you can have fun, whether the weather is good or not!
