Booked the winter warmer spa day for myself and a friend, £49 each. On arrival very single member of staff were friendly and welcoming. The "back massage" treatment was very good, however was meant to be 45 mins but was only around 30 mins. Secondly, we were shown the refreshments stand and told to help ourselves througout the day.

I recently attended a Christmas party here that my office organised, I usually don't enjoy company events; however upon entering on the themed red carpet I felt like royalty even though I had not organised the event. This really did change me from being the Office Grinch to a Christmas Cracker! I had an amazing night! The food was amazing.... More

A group of us booked for a Xmas party back in the summer and chose to stay over as well. Turned up on Saturday afternoon met with a not particularly friendly receptionist who sounded like she had had enough of saying the same spiel over and over. Our room was up on the top floor and it was dark, dingy... More

Booked Saturday night Casino/Dinner night for the staff with free chips for gambling. All looked great from the Red carpet entrance & staff dressed up like James Bond. Meal was good but that was it...One small Gaming table on what looked like a pasting table for all the guests. Couldn't get anywhere near it so that was a complete waste.... More
