I booked a winter package of dinner, bed and breakfast with champagne for the excellent price of £149. Oddly, I had to buy a gift voucher from a third party provider then redeem it, rather than book the package directly. The stay was for my wife and my 40th birthday and it was nice to have birthday cards for each of us in the room when we arrived.
Room was very nice - design a bit odd though. Why design a room with a step down to the sofa area? Nice to have fresh milk in the fridge and a bottle of water each. Champagne was very good.
The spa treatments (booked and paid for separately) were lovely and relaxing and not at all intimidating for novices. Pool is a good size so you're not constantly reaching the end and turning round.
Dinner was excellent. The package allows £35 per head for food. Drinks have to be paid for as an extra but they were reasonably priced. My pint of bitter was £3.40 I think. We didn't quite use our food allowance, but we had no room for anything else.
So why 4 star? I'd probably like to give 4½ - but just a couple of things stop it being a 5 (i.e. perfect).
For a recently built luxury hotel I would like the bathroom mirror to be heated so that it doesn't steam up after a shower. And who designed the step down to the sofa? Pointless!
Breakfast wasn't great. The fried eggs were solid, bacon cold (and a bit thick for my liking), tomato barely cooked and it's not serve yourself so you can't be totally greedy... On the other hand the baked beans and sausage (often cold in other hotels) were boiling hot. The bread was standard sliced - I would have expected some posh bread options.
But I'm sure we'll be back. It's only a 15 minute drive from home but a world away - especially when the children are being looked after!
