My wife and I spent four nights at the Low Wood as a celebration of our 30th Wedding Anniversary. As such we decided to splash out a bit and book into the recently opened Winander Club. We've previously stayed in the main house and actually had our wedding reception at the hotel. The staff in the Winander couldn't have been more helpful and we enjoyed the use of the lounge facilities, watching a sunset from the roof terrace was a real treat. The weather was also kind to us and we spent some time each day relaxing in the new outdoor spa area. We ate in both the Blue Smoke and the Windermere restaurants - while both good we preferred the Windermere.

Winander suite was opulent and the facilities were excellent. Our two week holiday was made even more enjoyable by all the staff of the hotel especially those in the Winander club. The extremely high level of service they provided was as good if not better than any hotel we have ever stayed at and we have had the good fortune to travel widely on business and stay at some of the best hotels around the world!!!

We had a great time - the Wynanda suites were brilliant. We will be going back - hopefully soon! Food was good, service was brilliant. One minor issue with our room was resolved quickly and with no fuss.

Normally coming to this hotel for business purposes and I thought to bring my family for a weekend. We are hugely disappointed because you have limited services if you are coming with a children. We couldn’t enjoy the outdoor pool because we have a 8 years old traveling with us and we booked this hotel for the outdoor pool and on the website doesn’t mention that childrens are not allowed on the outdoor pool just on the indoor pool. So we couldn’t enjoy a sunny day because of that and we paid the same prices that everyone else to be able to enjoy having a drink on the pool because they only serve in the outdoor pool.

Dear Jose Manuel O Please accept our profuse apologies that it had not been made clear to you upon booking that the spa facilities are only available to over 16's. This deciding point of your consideration to stay, should have been outlined when questioned on booking. Our team would have outlined this critical point, I'm only sorry this was not the case at the time. For clarity to those reading the out door facilities form part of the spa thermal experience. Our spa terms available online do outline adults only. However as residents the outdoor facilities including infinity pool, hot tub and wood fired sauna, although adult only are including within you room rate, along with all the other facilities within the health club. Thermal spa experiences are chargeable, and really must be experienced. Please be assured we are working to update our wed site to make this must clearer, again I'm sorry for your disappointment along with your sons on this occasion.
