We arrived to a warm welcome and show to a very pleasant clean room and en-suite, we dropped our bags and made immediately for the SPA. This was also extremely pleasant and clean, and being as we were there early afternoon we had it to ourselves. We relaxed in the pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi and had a lovely afternoon. Our table reservation was for 7.30 however we went to the poachers bar earlier for a drink. We picked our seats and the very attentive bar staff inquired after drinks and if we were dining, drinks were served and menu's provided. We were stopping on a bed, breakfast and evening meal combination however we decided to have one or two items from the menu as a whole rather than the set menu. The wine for our main course was a little pricey however that was our choice and there were other wines at lower prices. The starter of mackerel for me and belly pork for my wife were nice and were washed down with glass of Chablis. Our main courses arrived, Steak Frites for my wife and the fillet steak for myself. Although both were extremely tasty they were not generous by any stretch of the imagination with my fillet resembling a large postage stamp however the sauce and accompaniments were delicious but £35 I was a little disappointed. We then moved to the bar and once again all the staff were excellent. The next morning the breakfast certainly didn't disappoint, lots of choice and everything was tasty..........All in all this was a nice break, good facilities and we enjoyed our time but weren't blown away.....
