I took my daughters for a Sunday night for some special relaxation time, and we did indeed leave feeling thoroughly relaxed and pampered. The hotel is a modern building, very light and airy, set in beautiful gardens and with lovely country views. The spa area was good, no queues, and we often had the pool, sauna and steam room to...

Stayed there for a one night break and it was really nice. The grounds are beautiful the room was clean and the treatments were fantastic, my only complaint was the restaurant service was a little slow and inconsistent and the sandwiches that they served us were stale where they had been left uncovered, but when asked to change them they...

I had the love life spa break Sunday to Monday. Myself and 4 friends. Great start being collected from the train station for only £3. Arrived at the hotel which is clean and tidy and in lovely grounds. We ordered drinks and were told to take a seat. 30 minutes later we got the drinks. This wasn't a one off.... More

Something not quite right about this place! Upon arrival a long queue to book-in, with no members of staff at reception?! Ordered pre-dinner drinks which took an hour to get to us, we had gone into dinner and had chased them up, informed by a member of staff the bar had a back log of orders to make! Breakfast was...

Having booked a "deluxe" room (43) for nearly £200 a night one would expect a few niceties like a fridge, safe, Air con, wardrobe and some drawers to put you clothes in...unfortunately not. You can live out of a suitcase for a couple of days but I would not want to spend any longer here. The room and en-suite were... More

We've been to this Spa several times and love it. Sauna and steam room, spa bath and large swimming pool. You can also use the gym if you're feeling energetic. Some great treatments available. All set in wonderful grounds. We've done one overnight stay, rooms are lovely and the restaurant does gorgeous food. We've never had a complaint about this... More

As part of our package we had a massage and was informed check in was at 3pm. We arrived to find our massage had been booked for 6. It would be nice to have the itinerary to be sent... More

We stayed in the hotel with dinner the night before our spa day. Good welcome and a quick tour of the layout. Rooms are spacious and presented well although decor is a bit shabby in places ( marks on surfaces and water damage in bathroom). Really nice food and it was quiet too. The grounds are beautiful with some unusual... More
