I'd booked the hotel partly based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, and they were absolutely right - the hotel and spa are both excellent.
We are Mr & Mrs Smith members, so are used to a pretty high standard of boutique hotels around the world and this was definitely up there with the best of them. The customer service was simply brilliant from the moment we arrived up to and including them sorting out posting me the phone chargers I'd stupidly left in the room the following day.
Food in the brasserie was easily as good as any high-end restaurant I've eaten in recently, with portions just the right size. Good quality coffee ( a must for me!) and petit fours to die for.
The spa itself is new and impeccably maintained - I can thoroughly recommend the Thermal Journey ( a succession of different saunas and steam rooms etc.) as a great way to spend an afternoon, and the outdoor hot-tub is ace too.
Staff in the spa hotel and brasserie are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and down-to-earth - no hint of the off-handed snootiness often found in more up-market hotels.
We stayed on a Friday night, and it seemed to be getting much busier for the weekend (as you'd expect), so I might advise a mid-week break over a weekend one if you have a choice.
If I go on about how impressed we were with the whole experience any more, it's going to sound like we've been bribed, but just to say we'll definitely be returning, and I've already recommended it to anyone who'll listen...
