We all love some high end opulence when it comes along, and here at the gorgeous Stoke by Nayland Hotel it’s all around you. Nestled amid 300 acres of breath-taking Essex countryside and close to Suffolk, it’s a haven of serenity that you’ll surely fall in love with. No matter how stressed you might be feeling at the moment, some quality time spent here will soon make the world a better place once again.
Be sure to explore the area while you’re here, especially via a trip to Colchester to see the Roman heritage and perhaps to visit the world-famous zoo. The lovely seaside town of Southwold deserves to be on everyone’s must-see list, while you can enjoy some retail therapy in nearby Ipswich. The beaches at Clacton-on-Sea and Frinton-on-Sea are both worthy of your consideration as well.
An overnight stay at the Stoke by Nayland Hotel is always special, and there are 80 sublime bedrooms waiting to wow you. The spa is home to eight delightful treatment rooms, there’s a fantastic gym here and some stylish eateries for when the hunger pangs kick in.

Two Championship golf courses

If you’re feeling the need for a getaway, you’ll fall in love with the ambience that pervades the hotel’s spa. This is a sanctuary that has to be experienced to be believed, so be sure to soak up every single moment.
You’ll be able to take your pick from a glorious selection of treatments here, each of them designed to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. And once you’ve been thoroughly spoilt, be sure to head to the soothing waters of the spectacular swimming pool.
There’s a state of the art gym here that offers the perfect environment for a workout that really delivers. Thanks to its friendly and welcoming atmosphere, it’s ideal for regular fitness fanatics and occasional visitors alike.
If you’d rather head outside for some much-needed fresh air, test your skills on one of the two highly-rated golf courses. The lush green fairways and dramatic views of the surrounding countryside will enthral you.
Fine dining is always a pleasure, and it’s simply perfect when it’s savoured at the Lakes Restaurant. Stunning dishes featuring locally sourced ingredients are a feature of this rightly celebrated two AA-Rosette eatery.
A mouth-watering selection of lighter options can be enjoyed at both the Peake Bistro and Lounge Bar. And for a range of hearty meals make sure you spend some quality time at the Clubhouse.
My husband and I spent a glorious long weekend at Stoke by Nayland, and we both loved every minute of it. While he enjoyed the golf, I relaxed in the spa without a care in the world! I had a couple of treatments and they were fabulous, and to be honest I ended up reluctant to leave. The gym looked good from the outside but it wasn’t for me really. We had dinner in the Lakes Restaurant and it was wonderful, especially when the time came to choose from the dessert menu. All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone. Hopefully we’ll get the chance to visit again soon

Spa & massage review
Massage experience was fantastic, especially the mother-to-be package (highly recommend). Afternoon tea was lovely but quite disappointed with the spa. Was in the spa for a few hours and in that duration, we were unable to have a lounger because they were all reserved! Pool was also cold but was pleased with the facilities (especially GHD hairdryer/straightener available) Happy with hotel room, as beds were really comfy. Dinner was perfect, as we had the steak, although very understaffed. Breakfast could be improved though, but overall, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
