What a find, a spa hotel where under 16's are not allowed. The gardens here are a delight, and appear to be very underused by the guests who are all busy having facials and massages I suppose. My partner and I enjoyed walking around in the fresh air, completely undisturbed. The peace and quiet was a real break from the... More

We visited for one night in February. The hotel was unable to cope with the number of guests it had. We could not get a table in the restaurant so we had to eat in the bar. Tables at knee height aren't really suited for comfortable dining. The music in the bar was so loud I had to ask for... More

Catalogue of problems Arrived and checked in, reception very cold and no warm welcoming atmosphere. Shown the spa facilities direction while holding our luggage. We went to the... More

Have been to this Spa many times. It is brilliant for a short break, as the treatments are superb. The food in the hotel is lovely, but the dinner is the same menu every night, so I would recommend eating elsewhere on your second night. It is only a 5 minute drive to the unspoilt beach at Frinton, with lovely... More

Lack of professionalism outside of the treatment staff. Cold corridors, dowdy and very worn decor. This place is really in need of a fresh lick of paint and new upholstery. Catering staff were clueless and breakfast in particular was a total shambles. This place has no exclusivity and with big groups of hen party style, wild women....this totally spoils the... More

Afternoon tea was disappointing to say the least. The sandwiches were far from fresh, sparse,dry and pretty tasteless. The cakes too were small, uninspired and less than fresh and included 3 small chocolates which seemed a strange inclusion for an afternoon tea, The tea was fine.The surroundings were nice, quite relaxing and the service friendly. I would not recommend although... More

This is probably my 5th time to life house. Packages can be pricey but you get what you pay for. Lovely spacious rooms that are very clean. Spa is kept spotless with cleaners continuously cleaning. Food is wonderful. Would recommend.

We have just returned from a "blissful couples" break which included dinner, B&B and treatments in the Spa. The Lifehouse is a nice spa with a poor hotel attached. The room is essentially premier inn with a less comfortable bed and a slightly better showeroom ( no bath). The biggest disappointment was the food. The menu on the face of... More

This was my first overnight stay at Lifehouse. We had a standard room which was very well appointed with a lovely view of the grounds. The bed was ultra comfortable. Used the Spa in the afternoon which was busy but very nice. All the staff were friendly and helpful and our evening meal was lovely and the staff were very... More
