We were staying in a premier inn in Harwich for the previous two nights and experienced a very uncomfortable bed at a really reasonable price - we got the good night guarantee and decided to do a late deal for £42 at the Essex country club and golf hotel and expected just the room for this price. When we arrived, we were told at check in that all the pool, sauna, steam room and spa facilities were included in the price of our room. We took an impromptu trip to Colchester nearby to buy swimwear but towels were provided at the hotel. Our room was excellent - clean and tidy with a really comfy bed and more than a 3* feel with loads of extras available. The spa facilities were superb - clean, modern and definitely 5* in their feel with loads of room and the opportunity at all times to use whatever we wanted. The gym looked great too however we didn't use it. The food in the restaurant is fab - huge portions of good quality food for about £7 for a meal. The drinks were a little more pricey than usual but understandable for the location of the hotel. The only huge downside was the 9.30am alarm call (quite literally) with about 5 bells of the fire alarm unexpectedly. Once we were a little more awake we found a notice on the door statin that the alarm is checked around this time every Monday morning - something that would mean we wouldn't stay again on this day if the alarms continued at this time. Reception very apologetic that we weren't informed at check in and took our disappointment on board for a possible improvement. Other than this - a brilliant stay and would definitely return (not on a Sunday-Monday for the fire alarm reason) We loved our stay and were even allowed to use facilities after check out.
