Fantastic hotel, great location, food, service, rooms and spa treatments. However the major downside that would prevent me from booking in summer again - no aircon! While I understand that this goes against Eco principles, it makes for a very hot uncomfortable stay at night = poor sleep! All the spa treatments in the world can't make up for that,... More

I would like to start this on a positive note. The Lifehouse Spa resort is very nice indeed. As a complex it's one of the best I've stayed in. Stunning grounds and my room was clean and the facilities were very good although one tropical shower in the Spa was broken and the pool is only big enough for 4-5... More

We have just had two nights at this hotel on B/B basis with Secretescapes.com We had booked a standard garden view room in the Mulberry Block, ground floor, and on arrival we were given room 47. A good room but we then saw room 58 which was on the same floor but had a better outlook so we requested a... More

- Rooms The bed is OK, but neither an overly good mattress nor pillows. It's a top-end price for an average room. The walk-in shower was good with electronic controls. - Restaurant We didn't eat supper here, but breakfast was Travelodge-style: Buffet with scrambled eggs that were watery and rubbery - I passed in favour of toast. Coffee was good.... More

Recently went to stay with my boyfriend whilst visiting friends. It was the only hotel in the area that had availability at short notice. At £84.50 each for bed and breakfast I thought it was very pricy. However, we arrived and were showed to our room. It was spacious and had a view of the cafe area and gardens. There... More

Having had a great time last year, we returned in April for another day to ourselves. Hot stone massage and facials were very much enjoyed, together with use of the pool, jacuzzi and quiet room. It's amazing how relaxed you feel after a treatment, very zoned out. They had updated the system since our last visit but didn't advise us... More

We booked my mother in here to stay while visiting us in Frinton - it worked out at £300 for the weekend including breakfast - and that was a double room with single occupancy, If you have a twin or double then you pay marginally more which makes it very good value! Well designed, modern decor, all very clean and... More

Stayed for one night with dinner, bed and breakfast with a 35 minute treatment. The room was lovely overlooking the lake and garden. The meal was fantastic and beautifully presented although breakfast wasn't as good as my last visit, croissants were dry and the only choice of egg was scrambled. Last time there was a good choice of fresh fruits... More
