It's well worth looking out for special deal stays at Lifehouse as they work out at such good value. The hotel itself is really nice and the rooms are good. My friend and I had plenty of space and as we upgraded to a garden room, had a lovely ground floor terrace in the gardens which was great to have... More

It took us 3 hours drive and was quite peckish when we arrived we ordered a sandwich which took 35 min then they only had 1 type of bread. Our... More

My friend & I had a garden twin room In Mulberry, which was very clean. Water,kettle & complimentary tea/coffee/hairdryer and toiletries Had a lovely massage. Swimming... More

Lovely property with beautiful gardens and great spa facility. We stayed there for 1 night for a couples retreat in April 2015. It included a spa day, breakfast, dinner and chocolates and prosecco on arrival. If you are looking for a relaxing break, this place is perfect. Super close from London but feels like the countryside.

Brought my wife here for our 28rh wedding anniversary and we both loved it. The staff were very friendly and cared about us having a good time. The spa area was great, the gardens were beautifully kept and the food was excellent. We would definitely recommend this hotel and we will be back.

I'm not a fan of spas but decided to go with my daughter. The welcome was warm and friendly, we were shown where the facilities were located and directed to our room. The room was large, light and well appointed with a fabulous view. The spa was super, warm pool, good sauna and steam room. Fabulous facial too. Dinner was... More

If you want to do something special and classy, yet affordable, then book the Lifehouse spa in Essex! We had the best time. Me and my mum (73yrs Young) and my two sons (23 and 16; born on the same day, were away to celebrate their birthdays). We spent 2 days and one night. We got a fabulous special deal,... More

I visited the Lifehouse spa with my Mum for an early birthday getaway through an online deal, and we were both really impressed - more than we thought we would be. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, particularly the restaurant and reception staff, and our room was fab, with a lovely view of the gardens (and some bunnies!). The... More

The spa is the best I been to. The restaurant needs improving as they forgot our drinks so the starters came without drinks. The room was OK. Lampshade had dead flies on it and the cleaner didn't really clean... Just made the room and gave new towels. It could improve however the spa we used was gorgeous!
