"Arrived on the Friday, gentleman behind the desk was very nice and attentive. Said the hot tub would be warm by 8pm. got into the villa to find it a little grubby, it hadn't been cleaned to high standard at all, the table was sticky the pots were dirty when we came to use them, and the toilet had urine around the rim. The whole place just needed a deep clean. The hot tub wasn't warm by 8pm, as when we went to check it had been set at 26 degrees no the required 40 degrees so use of the hot tub on the first night was out of question. After we cleaned the villa and got the hot tub temperature sorted there was no further issues, apart from a lack of toilet rolls (only one per toilet) but we requested some more and got some. when we checked out of the villa we raised the issues of cleanliness and the hot tub to be told by a rather rude woman that we were told that the hot tub wouldn't be available on the first night and that it also stated in there lodge guides that this was the case, it didn't state this in the lodge guide at all and in fact reiterated the fact it would be ready by 8pm. Her reply on the state of the cleanliness of the lodge she stated that they were due a referb, which is of little use to use and is no excuse for a dirty lodge, I mean it isn't much to ask for a clean toilet. not a very helpful woman and very defensive even though they were Clearly in the wrong, we didn't ask for a refund or anything and only really got an appology when we were half way out of the door."

"We arrived as a young family of four, to a warm clean house. We were surprised at just how big it was. It soon became apparent that the heating was on a timer and most of the rooms were really chilly, so we had to wear coats. On contacting the owner, they arrived at the house within an hour to amend the issue. Which we were surprised at how quickly they had come to help us. So we were very grateful. The house is in need of some maintenance, but nothing that can spoil your stay. You have all the kitchen equipment that you can need, and the views are stunning, Even In cold February, we went onto the beach , which is directly opposite, every day! Either walking to Clacton Town Centre, or to the Pier, which only takes 20 mins. It was a lovely fresh walk. It was as pleasure to stay somewhere, that you didn't have to use your car to get around. We did not travel far, but even walked to the Town Centre at night time, with young children for a lovely evening meal, in the various restaurants there. It was a lovely stay and We would definatley come back again next year."

"A large property in a very enviable position. Ideal for a beach holiday with fantastic sea views and close enough to the town centre for all the amenities you require. There's plenty of space for larger families and the house is well presented. On the down side, was surprised to find no information is provided regarding the equipment, facilities or useful contact or location details for local services and GP etc. Also no guest book to enable feedback . Traffic noise during the day is quite obvious and the sealed glazing units at front have failed and therefore hold condensation. Some of the provided towels were also badly stained. We also found out, on arrival, the beach area is currently being rejuvenated and is closed to the general public in Clacton. If you want the beach you need to travel further along the front to gain access. The work is also being carried out around the clock and rocks are being delivered onto shore through the night."

"Although a beautiful house and in a good location, several aspects of our stay were below the standard we would normally expect as frequent visitors to holiday cottages. Actual entry to the house was made difficult and several of the bedrooms were extremely cold. Only a waste paper basket in the kitchen for a household of 8 for a week seemed very inadequate and the lack of provision of toilet paper seemed to us to be rather mean. There were dead flies on the floor in the living room and the fridge had not been cleaned properly. There was no book giving information like the WiFi code, nearest doctor or hospital or where the nearest shops were. There were Christmas decorations but the lack of a nearby caretaker meant that the house did not seem welcoming and we wondered what provision would be available in the case of an emergency."

"This was my third visit to Roydon Marina, in November. I found the lodge to be warm, clean and comfortable, as always, and the location peaceful and attractive. I am always self-catering as I have food intolerance requiring a special diet, so cannot comment on the restaurant. The cooking equipment is basic but adequate.The only quibble I had is that I wish I had taken my own tin-opener. It took me 20 minutes to get into a tin of salmon! Also, I came home in the dark one evening, and couldn't find the key pad to lift the entrance barrier. However, the staff were friendly and extremely helpful.The second photo attached is of the river as seen approaching Roydon Marina."
