It's pretty hard not to feel relaxed when you arrive at Holbeck - we'd driven down from Inverness on a return leg of a tour of the highlands and were feeling pretty whacked. The staff on arrival were very welcoming and could see that I needed food and something to drink so took me straight to the lounge whilst my wife went to the spa for some relaxation.
In the lounge looking out over the lake and with a martini and some sandwiches I felt so relaxed - this is what I want from a destination hotel like this.
We had booked dinner and it did not disappoint - the highlight for us being the banana beignets and that there was a huge selection of 1/2 bottles of wine available.
We really enjoyed the food - it was well presented and fresh.
The only thing I'd say that was not a positive was room 22 - we'll go back, but I will try for a suite. For the money I feel the room was a little tatty - there was also a couple of broken tiles in the bathroom, niggles but they should be fixed. And cobwebs on the ceiling need to detailed!
