The hotel is a little tired and in need of updating, especially the bedrooms. We were a large party of walkers and the staff at Mark Tey could not have been more helpful with all our needs. A good selection of breakfast was available. The Essex Way Is nearby for walks along the beautiful countryside .

I've just got back from staying here. My initial impressions were good from the reception area but the rooms just don't meet the standard. There were stains on the walls and when I looked, the bed sheet didn't reach the bottom of the bed so I had been rolling my feet around on something shared by countless other guests if... More

Where do I begin, it was just beautiful from start to finish.

Stayed here recently. This may sound brutal but the place is a dump, and needs serious refurbishing. Very tired and dated interior and the exterior looks like a 1970's built school, in fact quite similar to Grange Hill. Carpets very worn and threadbare, holes repaired with duck tape etc. Bed we reasonably comfortable. The only thing remotely new in the... More

This was a strange place. The staff were very pleasant but to be honest it was like stepping back in time 25 years. The building itself is rather old and looks old from the outside. The interior is very dated and tired also. Reminds me a bit of crossroads to show from the 70s. Having said that I did get... More

Spa 1 treatment and afternoon tea £28 per person. Wow amazing value. Could do with a Jacuzzi and more seating by the pool. To be honest i think id skip the pool on my next visit, as the massage and afternoon tea are well worth the money. Plus the staff are really helpful expeshally mandy merry. Will defiantly be going...

Stayed here for one night to attend a family function so was adequate for my needs. Friendly, helpful staff. However, the hotel interior décor and particularly the reception area is looking very dated and worn - the carpet literally. Paid £10.00 extras for breakfast which was a much as you like buffet and happy with that. I don't expect hot... More
