I have cancelled my membership for a number of reasons, but most of all now consider the cost too high considering the failures of equipment sudden cancellations of classes. The pool showers are constantly breaking down, Jacuzzi broken for over a week and now does not operate correctly, constant damp on the hall walls from the pool. In short the...

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...

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.

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...
