Lovely settingStayed five nights. Nice and quiet hotel, and no other quest noise. Better to visit, like we did, when the students are not there, with it being on the site of the Essex University Campus. Also, quite noisy in the bar and restaurant if you stay on a Friday and Saturday night, so better to stay from ...

Nice hotel - some staff poor We were attending a family wedding and further to a call to the hotel the evening before we were advised (quite abruptly) that we could not access room prior to 3:00 ( which was a little inflexible, but understandable) - so we arrived dressed for the wedding to be told some rooms were available for ...

An enjoyable stay.My ratings reflect the fact that this is a three star hotel. Our arrival was welcoming and check in efficient. Our room was clean and tidy and had all the essentials although a second chair would have been nice. The only slight problem the room was above the kitchen vent so window had to be closed ...

close to airport The hotel is ideal for flights from the airport and for £5 per person they will transfer you from the hotel to the airport. The rooms are ok. Very stuffy and needed the fan on all night as no fresh air. The bed is against the wall so not great for space. We ate at the hotel restaurant and it was ...

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.
