This is my second spa review for this hotel - for some reason the first one that I submitted a couple of weeks ago has disappeared. I have emailed TripAdvisor but they don't reply so I thought I would try again... (I am giving the same 4 star rating and glowing report that I did in my first review, so... More

Managed to get a last minute deal and was not disappointed. Hotel is excellent and can't find fault at all. Room was spacious, warm and we'll equipped. Guest bus to and from town is a bonus. Spa area is large and a bit confusing I felt, but clean and again well equipped. Had choice of restaurants so could go cheap... More

Excellent service and facility. The facilities were wide ranging and in excellent condition. The staff was very helpful even with the added stress of The Open week. The food and service in all the venues were very good.

I had stayed at this hotel twice in the past with work, and had always wished that I could return. So when myself and my partner got married, I knew exactly where I wanted us to go for our short break. I had emailed the hotel a few weeks prior to our arrival to arrange afternoon tea, and I was...

Although I am happy with the hotel, the rooms and service, I am extremely disappointed with the Spa. From the beginning each experience was a problem. I told the lady that helped me during booking I wanted a 90-minute signature experience massage, and since only express manicure/pedicure was available, I took those treatments. I originally booked for Wednesday, but when... More

I visited here as a surprise booked by my friend. This was during the British open whilst our husbands attended the golf. We had a lovely jovial welcome from the concierge when we asked where afternoon tea was held- he joked about having made the best batch of his scones that morning! We then went to the cafe area and... More
