We stayed in the Iris suite, which was £220 for the night. The hot tub was the main draw to this hotel, and we were not disappointed. On arrival the staff at Reception were very helpful and welcoming and this continued through our stay. The room itself was very pleasant and the hot tub was lovely. There were no faults with the standard of cleanliness and the room, which was very well presented. The box of chocolates and biscuits on the pillows was a nice touch. The Internet TV and blue ray dvd player were also a nice touch and the whole hotel was finished and presented to a high standard. Although we did not have time to make use of the pool or spa, it did look very nice and relaxing when we were shown round. Breakfast was very nice, we both had the cooked breakfast and all the produce appeared to be that of a high quality.
My critiques would be that the spa bath was incredibly underwhelming, it was not really deep enough and was very uncomfortable to sit in. However, the hot tub and shower/steam room made up for this so it wasn't much of an issue. Slippers would have been a nice addition to the room to accompany the robes that were provided as the decking by the hot tub was very uncomfortable on your feet. The rules about not being able to use the hot tub after 10:30 were a shame, but I understand that this is due to noise and the hot tubs being cleaned, but it would have been nice to sit in it at night. Although the duvet was very comfortable and soft it was far too thick for July and we were both boiling with it on.
Overall we had a lovely stay and thoroughly enjoyed the luxurious feel that this hotel offered. The standard of customer service was very high and all the staff were welcoming and polite and seemed genuinely happy to help. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing (and romantic) weekend away.
