“Weekend in one of the Lodges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

A group of 6 ( 3 couples ) rented one of the larger lodges for the weekend . 2 great golf courses ,a Spa for the ladies and 3 comfortable rooms within the lodge . We self catered but eat out at a local restaurant on the Saturday night . Very well equipped lodge with a mini bus to run you to and from the hotel . TV's in every room plus DVD player and amp . We enjoyed the relaxed time table of having breakfast or a snack when we wanted. The staff at the hotel were very friendly .
One lodge had a party which was not too good for the families in the other lodges with kids . (it was half term ) but it finished at midnight so no major deal . We did have a problem with the hot water but the duty manager sorted us out as we left with no fuss . He handled it the way it should have been handled so we will be back early summer .

Room Tip: Lodges are great for weekend with friends

Thank you for your excellent review. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the relaxed timetable of self-catering but also made use of the hotel facilities (golf courses and Peake Spa). The lodges are perfect for a weekend getaway with friends. I hope you will consider a reunion stay sometime in the near future. We’d love to have you!

We walked it in the day time and its a beautiful walk!! The lodges are totally amazing!!! I was gobsmacked at just how beautiful they are and so spacious!!! Surround sound in the ceiling, open plan kitchen/diner. Overall this is a getaway to indulge and forget about the world for a while!!

This place is great if you want a chilled out, no worries, spa weekend! You will not be let down by the services they provide! You can be picked up from the lodge and taken to the main hotel to eat, drink and do whatever! The lodges are superb- seriously you'll be blown away!! Surround sound in the ceiling, open plan kitchen/diner. Overall this is a wicked getaway to get away from the world!!

What a wonderful review! Sounds like you had a blast relaxing in the spa and having time away from it all in the beautiful location of our lodge site. The lodges are truly stunning, aren’t they? We would love to welcome you back soon.

Last weekend some friends and I stayed in the Lodges at Stoke by Nayland Golf and Spa complex. The self catering Lodges are beautifully appointed and are perfect for a celebration. In total we occupied 3 Lodges using one for the main meeting place. In all we were 21 people, there was plenty of room for us all to eat inside or out on the extensive terraces with stunning views of Suffolk's constable country.

We also had the opportunity to play the two 18 hole championship golf courses and the Spa

Everyone enjoyed their weekend and all said they would love to do it again. I cannot recommend them highly enough

Room Tip: All Lodges have great views

Thank you for your excellent review and for your recommendation! We would definitely love to have you again. With a party of 21 it must have been fairly busy so it is good to hear that you had time to check out Peake Spa and our 2 championship golf courses. Please return soon!

Reserved "Cox' & "Pippin" which served as our home away from home for a week during our trip to the UK. The Lodges are airy, spacious and well equipped with great views across the course. The lodge porters were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, even when we asked to do our own BBQ. Our golfers enjoyed the golf courses and there was plenty to explore for non golfers in the surrounding areas. Kentwell Hall in Long Melford and the Boat House in Dedham just to name a few. Would have no hesitation in recommending the lodges.

The lodges at Stoke by Nylands are just perfect in everyway, very well equipped eveything you could think of, 5 friends went away for a break everything we wanted was there and everything of a very high standard. Nothing is too much trouble, the staff are friendly and helpfull. The drivers that take you to your lodge were all really nice and gave us lots of tips in the surrounding areas that we could visit. The peace and tranquility of the lodges is just amazing we will be returning hopefully very soon.
