I stayed here as a last minute booking for a wedding down the road. The staff were pleasant but the room very grotty and certainly not worth the price. The whole place needs to be refurbished. The sauna wasn't working.

We have just held our End of Season Presentation evening and I am not normally one to write opinions on websites but the service and the quality of the evening & attention to detail put on by the staff at the Rivenhall hotel & spa was top notch. Laura Carr (Rivenhall Events Co-Ordinator) was fantastic from start to finish and... More

Apparently my last review was on the wrong part of the hotel, and it was a hurried one. This time I will tell it as it really is. On pulling up to the hotel, you would be excused for thinking it looks bad. Don't be put off, it really isn't. Staff: the staff here are some of the nicest people... More

Firstly, thank you to the kind receptionist who rearranged our stay after I had booked the incorrect date! Unfortunately the hotel physical standards are not up to those set by the staff. The area is dated, wooden and run down. How anybody can call it a 'Health Spa' is beyond me. The pool was tiny, there was no sauna, no... More

My husband booked this for my birthday, a spa weekend which I was really looking foward to! Very disappointed. Just sitting of off the A12 the noise from traffic was loud! As soon as we entered the car park we knew that it was not good. The windows of the rooms were old and grubby. The reception was very old... More

Stayed here for our 2nd anniversary, booked by my partner as a surprise. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Debbie was amazing and upgraded us to a suite when she knew what the occasion was. There was also champagne and flowers in the room which my partner had arranged but Debbie had sorted. When we asked to book a... More

Not disabled nor gay friendly! Stated in booking needed disabled access but we were put in a room I couldn't get my chair around or into the room without collapsing it and using my sticks. Staffs attitude at myself and partner requesting a double bed was rude and they continued to be rude and giggling at us and unhelpful to... More

It looks like a motel from a murder movie. The only good thing was how polite and apologetic the staff are. I really couldn't fault the people who worked there, Me and my Boyfriend had travelled 6 hours to arrive at a 'dump'. I had looked online and saw the mixed reviews but I think make your own judgements. This... More

Stayed at this hotel on Saturday night, the day staff as we checked in, were very friendly. The staff the next morning however were miserable, rude and sarcastic. The hotel rooms need a lick of paint, new windows and change the kettles. (Mould inside the kettle). You can hear everything and everyone going past your room and I found it... More
