Stayed here for one night to celebrate my husbands 40th. Lovely hotel. Room lovely although maybe a little on the small size considering we paid for a superior King room. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast lovely. Used spa facilities after checking out and also good.

Full use of all the spa, gym and pool facilities. A sumptuous afternoon tea served in the restaurant, overlooking the lovely surroundings. A choice of treatments also available to make this a perfect day.
