Break spoilt by restaurant + shower
  • 3 Service

  • 3 Satisfaction

The Hotel is lovely although in need of a bit of TLC. The shower was impossible to regulate resulting in my getting scalded. Service in restaurant was awful for both dinner (waited an hour for our meal) and breakfast (the buffet breakfast table was empty and was not refilled during the 45 mins we waited, the juice machine was empty and service was non existent).

The Spa is very nice and location great just off the motorway the ground it sits in fab for a stroll before or after dinner, or indeed with a dog.we noticed a pub a little walk away which would have been nice to visit but no path or way to get to without transport or taxi which seems very silly and the road is very very busy duel carriage type 4 lanes and dangerous to even attemp to walk on that, there is a small grass verge which is un even wet and dirty real not safe or clean to try to use and not lit other than car lights ,if your intension is to stay for 1 night and be grounded where you are fab place to stay.

Absolutely wonderful spa break. Esme could not have been more helpful during booking as we had to change hotel due to treatment availability after booking. We went as a group of four and we all truly relaxed. The hotel and spa were lovely and the treatments were outstanding - Michelle was amazing and I had a fabulous back massage and facial (she worked hard to relieve my stiff neck!) - thank you. The hotel staff were great and the breakfast was really good, one slight negative was that our friends room was very cold. The radiator appeared to be broken, we mentioned it to reception and they brought some heaters up.
