Despite reviews i had read, i thought the rooms were fine (bathrooms were a bit dated). What do you need from a room on a golf break.... a decent bed! Beds were almost too soft, which is hardly anything to moan about for 2 nights..
Reasons to Visit Five Lakes Resort
Designed by European Tour & Ryder Cup player Neil Coles
Hosted a number of EuroPro Tour events including Nick Faldo Challenge
Two USGA specification courses
Set in 320 acres of glorious Essex countryside, Five Lakes Resort features two superb golf courses, which has cemented its reputation as one of the premier golfing destinations in the East of England. At the head of its golfing pedigree is the Lakes Course which has hosted a number of the Euro Pro Tour's leading competitions and The Faldo Series Challenge. The Links Course is the perfect compliment to the test of the Lakes, being slightly shorter and playing easier, but still offering a decent round of golf.
Found a short distance from the mouth of the River Blackwater, less than 30 minutes from Colchester town centre, Five Lakes is easily reachable by car. The resort offers excellent spa and leisure facilities, designed to aid with relaxation when you are not teeing it up. In the evenings you have the choice of the main restaurant or the stylish bar in which to enjoy a meal and a drink.
