Well priced for a pleasant stay.Nice grand looking hotel and very friendly staff. Inside the hotel, especially the rooms, look a bit outdated. Doesn't need to be modernised as it's an old Manor house but it could do with a make over. Gym, sauna and steam room facilities were good (but small), but no jacuzzi or pool unfortunately. ...

Nice setting but dangerous road. The hotel is lovely- a renovated Elizabethan Manor House with lovely grounds and a lake. Unfortunately we were accommodated in the annex across the road, which was narrow, unlit and with a bend in both directions. We arrived after dark, and the time clock for the external lights of the annex had ...

Pocket Guide: Luxury Hotels Hotels in Essex

Deciding to take your break in Essex is a great choice for couples and families who want to see stunning scenery, visit beautiful beaches and explore the range of historical and family-friendly attractions that the county has to offer. However, if you want to make your stay an extra-special one, there are some superb, luxury hotels in the area. Whether it's a holiday, a special occasion or you're attending a wedding in Essex, the range of luxury hotels is quite extensive, from sumptuous B&Bs to secluded and elegant country hotels.

Luxury Hotels in Essex

When we think of luxury hotels, we tend to think of sky-scraping buildings featuring every mod-con imaginable. However, the Warners Farm B&B, in picturesque Saffron Walden has combined 15th century charm with 21st century amenities to create a luxury hotel that practically crackles with character. Breakfasts are served in the dining room, which is furnished with antiques. However, if the weather's good and the sun's shining, there's also the option to enjoy your morning meal on the poolside patio. The rooms are individually decorated and comfortable, with en-suite bathrooms.

Treat Yourself to Some Pampering

If your idea of luxury is in a traditional hotel, then Down Hall Country House Hotel ticks all the boxes. Set on 110 acres of Essex countryside, the hotel dates back to 1322 and has been through various incarnations, acting as everything from a monastery to a convalescent home for soldiers wounded in the First World War. Today, the rooms are a tasteful fusion of pastel shades and rich furnishings. The cherry on this very elegant cake comes in the form of the hotel's spa, which offers a range of indulgent treatments.

Relax in Style

For the best in pampering, the award-winning Lifehouse Spa and Hotel has everything you could need to leave relaxed and refreshed. The focus is on winding down and the Lifehouse offers a range of packages for those who want to stay in its bright and contemporary rooms. The hotel's restaurant overlooks the historic Thorpe Hall Gardens and serves exquisite meals, sourced from fishermen, farmers and producers in East Anglia.

While a trip to Essex is a treat at any time of year, booking a room in a luxury hotel can help to make your stay one to remember.
