A beautiful hotel with excellent facilities and friendly welcoming staff. There is a Spa, indoor swimming pool, outside jacuzzi which was magical in the snow. Food reasonably priced and of excellent quality. Rooms spacious and clean. Toiletries renewed daily. Choice of fresh towels daily if wanted and if not a $5 dollar voucher to spend in the hotel. Free parking. Beautifully kept grounds. Close to the Essex Outlets (shops and a cinema).

My stay at The Essex was extremely disappointing. Housekeeping woke me early 3 times on the day I was departing. With a checkout time of 11, I would not expect them to be knocking on my door early on a Sunday morning. Also, the food was quite ordinary and did not meet the standards of excellence the resort claims. I did find the Spa experience to be wonderful, however highly priced. I stayed for 2 nights in a room that was clean and comfortable. I live in VT and had high expectations for this resort, but would NOT book an event here. There was nothing special or exciting about the service and food offered at either the event or in the restaurant.

No longer affiliated with the culinary institute, but food is still quite special. We ate at the spacious bar in the tavern and it got quite busy fast. Bartenders were awesome. Laura took wonderful care of us. Check for the daily specials (ie., $2 tacos). We discovered that a number of locals pick the day based on the special they want. Very friendly atmosphere. Prices are higher than other local pubs, but well worth a visit.

Check in was fast and friendly. Room was exquisite. Dinner at the Junction was outstanding. Great pool and gym. Hotel is a Culinary resort and they have cooking classes you can sign up for. Spa services are available. I can not wait to visit again.

Cozy accomodations with plenty of considerably staffed, professional amenities for families; spatious, remarkably afforadable and modestly oppulent. We enjoyed a local farm platter and local cider at the Tavern in our brief stay and observed cooking courses.
