Trip Advisor Reviews

We came here as we wanted to visit Mersea Island and the wonderful fish shacks they have there.
We found this hotel and booked for 1 night. It’s a great place . Central location to get about. The hotel itself is set on wonderful grounds with a golf course and lakes etc. The staff were extremely efficient and the hotel itself had a great sense of calmness. Our room was fantastic too. Strong shower fabulous big comfy bed. Lots of mirrors for the ladies . Everything you need in a room and it has black out curtains so the room was lovely and black to sleep.
Breakfast fantastic- huge buffet serving for gluten intolerance and veggies too.”
