Not as expected not private at all ...
Would not class it as vip.
We enjoyed our week but there are a couple of issues.
The heating is very difficult to understand ; instructions or an orientation should be provided.
We did also complain to the office that the main settee in the lounge was not fit for purpose.
It was broken in the middle and extremely uncomfortable.
We had to squash tougher on the smaller seat. Very uncomfortable.
The office said they would try an replace it but we never heard back from them.
They also said the reason the furniture was so basic was because the lodge we were in was the only one they rented out for guests with pets. Why give that one to us.
We were very disappointed especially compared to lodge 4 that we rented the previous year.
It was the best holiday we have had everything about it made for s grest Christmas. We enjoyed all the facilities especially the hot tub.thank you.
It was a great place- highly recommended although the restaurant on site was one of the worst experiences an would not recommend it to anyone
very nice environment, the lodge was very comfortable and extremely well thought out. However I found that the settee were stained and not clean
a good relaxing and enjoyable long weekend break.
Comfortable stay, very good location and good quality furnishing
I was.ok about the holiday but couldnt work the heating so was freezing asked a member of staff who said they would get someone over waited they didnt turn up....
was in the hot tub and at 10.30 in evening was told to keep noise down by a member of staff because we were talking and laughing ..so was not impressed after paying so much money.....in fact been meening to make a complaint just have been very busy
Went for a relaxing break before Xmas work madness, lovely to be able to sit in a hot tub and hear the birds chattering. Only a 10 min walk then on a 40 min train in to London for the night. Sunday lunch in any of the three local pubs is only a 25 min stroll away.
It is a beautiful, well-managed place and excellent in every way. I have relations in various parts of Essex and access to these was easy. The people in the village shop were also very welcoming, in fact, although I have stayed in various lodges over the years, this was easily the best.
Absolutely beautiful. Everything you could want. Hot tub was very relaxing too. Only thing was the narrow road but that is out of their control. Brilliant would defo recommend
This was my second visit can't wait till my third security very friendly and helpfull
Very in comfy bed in master bedroom of lodge. Reported it and reception staff said they will investigate it. Ive stayed here previously and will continue to come back I'm sure. Thankyou for a good stay.
If you are looking for isolation, being , somewhat , in the middle of nowhere , to sit back for the duration of your stay and literally do nothing , then Roydon marina village is the perfect choice.
During my weeks stay, I Payed for the VIP lodge and it did live up to it's standards. The lodge was spacious modern and very well kept apart from a Nick and dent here and there but I put that down to "being lived in".
Apart from that it was a bad placement in a baron location with nothing really to do.
A memeber of staff informed me of a new restaurant on site thatsenu consisted of the vast choices of steak or pizza.
I ordered the rump steak which cost around £15 , baring in mind Iv had better steaks for a lower cost, and for that. Price you'd expect the waiter/ waitress to ask how I would like my over priced steak to be cooked,which didn't happen , Infact I had to remind the waitress twice as the language barrier was too complicated for her to understand "medium rare" , not really tough when all you serve is steak and pizza.
In the bright side it was presented very well and the lasagne my partner ordered said her food tasted freshly cooked by the chef andnot of your typical weatherspoons "microwave technician " standards.
Overall I do believe the cabin was worth the money but lack of facilities and location let it down.
I probably would stay again if there was a bit more variety on site.
Relaxing place to stay.
