This Hitel abd Spa is a bit of a Curate's Egg. Its good in parts. I would imagine that it is good for spa treatments, but as we didn't take any, I cannot really comment. Equally I cannot comment about the food. We were there just for bed & breakfast.
And, at the high price of £150 plus, it really wasn't value for money. On arrival we had to ask for the sheets to be changed on the bed as there were large holes in the bottom sheet. Housekeeping did a fast job in changing the sheets, but at these prices I would expect better.
The room was fine, with large french windows opening out to overlook the beautiful gardens. But on the 'non existant ' balcony there were cobwebs galore. But while onn the subject of cleanliness the restaurant had not been swept, and the breakfast buffet bar was noththing special, with a limited choice.
The one major advantage, it is just 10 minutes to Frinton.
