"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."

"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."

"Spacious child friendly holiday home on 3 floors with private garden which has fantastic views over the sea & lovely sandy beach. It is about 1 mile along the beach to Clacton with its impressive pier which has had a £4 million pound makeover. The property is very well equipped but a little bit dated with some creaky upstairs floorboards & the main bedroom could do with a king size bed instead of a double. The owners are very friendly & on hand for advice. We thoroughly enjoyed our week staying at the property, thought it was good value for money & we were very lucky to have warm sunny weather in early October. Would recommend!"

"Just returned after 4 nights here and we can't fault our stay. The house is in a great location right next to the beach and a short walk from Clacton centre. The house was in great condition, clean and everything you could think of was provided. Barry, the owner, was on hand to let us in and show us around when we arrived also giving us advice about the area etc which is also provided in a house book.We had a great week even though it was out of season and loved the house and if we are heading this way again would definately consider staying again"
