Recently my wife and the kids stayed at the Essex Golf & Country Club in the County Suite. We had a great stay. The room was an excellent size, the swimming pool was good, the food in the bar was very nice, and the staff were very polite and helpful. We will certainly look to visit this hotel again in...

I cannot comment on the quality of the hotel etc, as I was on a golf only visit. Having said that, we were treated to a warm welcome and a very acceptable array of bacon and sausage rolls with coffee on our arrival. The entrance to the course (and hotel complex) is quite odd. Firstly you drive through what could...

Just wanted to say what a fantastic night we had at The Essex Golf and Country Club's 80's Christmas Party. On arrival we were greeted with wonderful staff offering canapés and then shown to our beautifully laid out table. We enjoyed a superb three course meal and danced the night away to a 7 piece band and a DJ disco...

Visited The Essex with my family for an event - Lunch with Santa - absolutely amazing for both kids and adults!! Firstly wanted to start with Chris as Santa – what a great and wonderful character he portrayed and his enthusiasm was top class – you can really see the effort put in by himself, and he makes it fun...

After a three hour journey from Cheshire, I was looking forward to staying here and using the spa, but there were various disappointments. The spa could definitely have done with a facelift as the ceiling looked like it was rotting away. The food in the restaurant was stodgy, badly cooked, and overpriced, and the staff therein not very helpful at...

Stayed here on business, there is plenty to do if your energetic and the rooms are clean, tidy and modern. I'd recommend a stay if in the area although if you like a wander in the evening there isn't much else in the area.

Hello Mark, Thank you very much for your lovely review on your time spent here at The Lodge. Our only downfall on our location is that we are in the middle of nowhere, located between two villages, so not always so easy to get out and walk around. However, like you mentioned, we have lots to offer for hotel guests...

Hello Kelly, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. Our rooms do not have air conditioning unfortunately, but I'm sure you can appreciate the English weather, 5 times out of 10, never knows what it wants to do. We do have fans we can allocate out to rooms if needed when the weather is warm in the summer. We...

The hotel location is very nice and the view from the room over the golf course was lovely. The staff were helpful & friendly. We ate in the restaurant, which I would describe more as a glorified cafe, but the food was good and the portions huge. The only criticism I would have, is that the service at breakfast was...
