This a beautiful hotel and we were very impressed when we arrived. However we had booked this hoping for a quiet relaxing spa break. When we came to use the facilities they were packed and we could not find a seat or anywhere to leave our towels while we used the sauna etc. So after dumping them on the floor we used the sauna and steam room, the jacuzzi was full the whole time we were in there so we didn't get to use it and when we went to use the pool it was full of kids playing, making it impossible to swim. I didn't expect to find children in here at all, especially after we had left ours with a sitter for the day to go for some peace and quiet. The restaurant was lovely and the food was very nice although quite expensive. We went for a drink in the Stables bar in the hotel in the evening and found it was full with locals and nowhere to sit again. Some of these locals had been at the bar since we popped in around 2pm for a drink and their language was absolutely disgusting. We had been recommended this hotel by a friend who had gone there mid week and was shocked by what we said, it had been really quiet when she was there. So perhaps that is the best time to go. I wouldn't recommend going on a saturday unless you find noisy kids and foul mouthed locals your idea of relaxing!!!
