Stayed here in April 2013 with my Mum for one of the special spa treats.
When we arrived we were immediately struck by the beauty of the building and location. However it seemed to take reception ages to check us in as some details had been lost. We had the first of our spa treatments shortly after arrival, but there did not seem to be anywhere to leave our bags and cases, our room not being ready, so we had to lug them down to the spa, which was a bit of a nuisance.
We had two spa treatments booked, but did not get our robes and slippers until the second treatment, which seemed a bit disorganised. We really should have had the robes at the start, and somewhere to leave our cases.
The food was excellent, but when it came to the evening meal which was part of our package, we were told that we could choose from the a la carte up to a certain value, which seemed like a funny way to do things. Anything you had above that had to be paid for, and yet I was under the impression that we had already paid for a full meal. Having said that, the staff at dinner and breakfast were excellent. We had a lunch in the spa, and this was also very good and good service.
The room was pleasant, and what you would expect from a hotel of this standard - very nice.
The spa treatments were very good, and there was a brilliant relaxation room to chill out in afterwards.
Pleasant lounges to sit in. Lovely feel to the place - an inspiring combination of traditional old country house with modern facilities.
I thought that, on the whole, the place was lovely and the waiting staff were excellent - there could just be a bit more thought put into things organisationally.
All in all, I would go back here for a short break and spa treatment.
