I have stayed in literally hundreds of B&B's and hotels and unfortunately this is the worst by far. A fire alarm at 12:45am, followed by 45 mins in a very cold car park is unlikely to enhance a review, but far too many other issue will ensure I never book again:confusion at checkin, tied decor, no hot water and apathy...

Just returned from a FABULOUS weekend at the Essex Golf and Country Club celebrating my husbands birthday with family. The hotel may need a refurb and is a little dated but nonetheless spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff were fantastic and went the extra mile to ensure our stay was a memorable one. Only one problem the inconsiderate morons...

A very disappointing visit with friends for a golfing trip earlier this month. Yes, it is 25 years old but nothing has changed. The place needs updating urgently so that the expectations of seeing people in shell suits and being offered Blue Nun are dispelled from the mind. The bar/restaurant area has all the charm and warmth of an airport...

I rang a week in advance to inquire about pricing for a round of golf on a Saturday. I was told £25. When we arrived to play I was shocked that the price had gone up to £35 for summer prices. It took an hour to complete the first 4 holes as there were 2 large groups playing ahead of...
