We got married in May but it's taken me this long to review The Real Retreat. The one word I would use is magical! My sister organised the whole thing and Dennis ensured everything was perfect for our first night as husband and wife. The room was beautiful, the facilities were brilliant and the breakfast was out of this world.... More

My partner and I came for a day retreat deal - while the staff all seemed very nice, I have to agree with the last review....all a bit disappointing really. The whole place could do with a thorough clean and a spruce up.....arrived home in need of a shower! Sorry....won't be returning as there are other places in the area... More

The house is professionally cleaned on a daily basis so your observations are rubbish, please stay to true to your word and never come back as your stay with us was also a bit of a let down and there a lot nicer people in the area. More

Booked this spa day as an Amazon deal. The price was comparable with other offer days we'd had at Champneys & that's where the similarities ended. I echo the comments of an earlier visitor. There was another couple of friends at the same time as us making 4 in total but only 2 places to stretch out round the pool.... More

This review very is far from the truth, These people were here on an Amazon Local £89 inclusive deal that does not include access to any of the rooms thus the comment on the rooms having no bed linen should have been none of their concern as they were only at the retreat as day guest...we kindly offered them the...

Overall an exceptionally good experience! We organized a somewhat unusual event for this location, but it worked out extremely well. The actual place looks very good, and is in my opinion even more atmospheric than the description implies! Facilities were very good as well, with plentiful showers (many on suite), toilets and a downright impressive swimming pool. The hosts were... More

Got a deal from Amazon Local for myself and a friend and we were both very impressed. It is a small place, very quiet and relaxing. Unlike a full spa, this is a retreat and doesn't have the same range of facilities, but what was there was excellent! The pool was lovely, treatment rooms were very good and the therapist... More

We stayed there last We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for 2 nights and had dinner on the first evening. The dinner was fantastic and it had a very intimate feel. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff was very friendly. It was so special that my boyfriend proposed to me there. Lovely stay! Thanks

Wow, just wow. I stayed here with a large group for one night, and couldn't have found a more special location for a party. Secluded, chic and exceptionally well appointed, this place is perfect for large groups or families. We had great fun exploring the property on arrival. Very convenient for London, with fantastic facilities nearby - but with such... More

My family stayed here for two nights and had an awesome time. The little village of Flore is a great place to visit and the Real Retreat is a beautiful house to stay in. We went swimming, took walks to the local farm that had baby lambs to pet and feed. We ate at the upscale local pubs with great... More

One of the best 2 night breaks we have been on. Just leave your stressful life in the car and walk into relaxation and calmness. The hotel is a haven where you can do as much or as little as you like. There are treatments that you can have for an extra costs or just swim in the perfectly heated... More

I would recommend everyone I know and people just looking for a fantastic weekend of pure relaxation. The service was brilliant, constant laughs and a real homely feel from all of the staff making you feel totally at home and at ease. The facilities were fantastic, with the pool being heated at a perfect temperature and being so beautifully light... More
