I have just returned from a stay at The Pillo for 2 nights. We took a taxi to the hotel from the rail station which was less than a 5 minute drive away. It is situated close to the city centre and near the dual carriageway and so easy to find. Upon arrival we were informed that we had been upgraded to a suite which made our stay that bit more special. The suite was very spacious with 2 bathrooms, king size bed, 2 widescreen tvs, lounge area etc. The room suited is ideally and would also be perfect for a family or group travelling. The only criticism we would have is that the decor is slightly dated and as our room was at the front of the hotel there was a little noise from outside traffic in the mornings. We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel both mornings which was lovely and freshly cooked for us. We also tried out the bar menu on one evening, the food was brought to us quickly and was very tasty and reasonably priced. There was also an extensive drinks menu to choose from. There is also a fabulous spa here which we decided to visit, we booked our appointments in advance which I would recommend as they appeared to be busy. Before our treatments we got to use the thermal suite which has various showers, steam room, sauna etc. We had the suite to ourselves and it was most relaxing. Slippers and a robe were also provided by the spa for our visit. I chose to have a facial while my partner got a full body massage. We were supposed to be in a couples suite but were basically in separate rooms with the partition only being drawn for the duration of the treatment so it was not really a shared experience. Aside from this however we thoroughly enjoyed our treatments and my therapist (Sarah I think!) was very attentive in her work and even recommended some products for me after my treatment. All in all we were delighted with our stay. It is perfect for couples, those travelling for business and also for girly weekends. It is in a good location within walking distance to eyre square and well serviced by taxis. The staff were very attentive and pleasant and we will definitely stay at The Pillo again.
