Booked a Sunday night spa package with dinner and overnight stay with my boyfriend on 22nd Dec - expecting it to be super busy before Xmas, but was very peaceful and quiet.
Checked into our room, which was lovely. A big comfy bed and plasma tv. Clean bathroom with separate bath and large shower. Overall very pleased and nothing to complain about.
Got given robe and slippers when we arrived at the spa. Each had a 55min aromatherapy massage which was in a lovely relaxing dark room. Both enjoyed a lot. Then the best bit was the sleep zones that followed. Already feeling sleepy and tired after our massages, we were shown to the area of relaxation beds/water beds where we could make the most of the tranquil atmosphere and fall asleep!
Then ventured down into the swimming pool/jacuzzi/steam room area. Not busy at all and very refreshing after our nap. Everywhere was very clean. We then went to the gym for a short session. Large gym with a good variation of equipments and weights. Changing rooms were lovely.
Next was dinner in the grill. We had a £29 allowance each and could choose anything off the menu - although there wasn't a huge choice. We didn't realise this money was only for food and not for drinks, so we ordered less food than we cold have got, no biggie. The food and wine we had were fantastic. I had the pork and my bf had the lamb which was equally as yummy. We enjoyed every bit of it. Not busy and service was good.
Breakfast in the morning was in the same place. Very impressed there was a huge selection of all hot/cold breakfast foods. All which you could help yourself to. Checked out, no hassle and receptionist was very friendly.
We absolutely loved our stay and we could not fault the hotel one bit. I would highly recommend it as a relaxing break for anyone. Would love to good back! :)
