Welcome to our world

So you are planning a hotel break? Imagine a peacefully secluded family owned resort providing down-to-earth customer service mixed with elegant luxury.

Now take the leap and escape the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life for just a few short days (or longer if you wish). We are sure you’ll experience something truly unique in the form of our 80 contemporary hotel rooms, two 18-hole championship golf courses, a 2 AA Rosette restaurant, nine well-appointed function rooms, five Country Lodges, a luxurious spa and high-tech gym. And our location – within 300 acres of rolling countryside in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – is a truly spectacular sight.

But don’t take our word for it, visit us at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa, located just outside Colchester, and experience everything that we are for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you.
