We chose to stay local and not overnight at the more expensive spa. We were welcomed warmly and given the opportunity to see the rooms available and choose what we wanted. I was pleasantly surprised that while small, our room had a nice fireplace and good sized personal pool for enjoying the hot waters in our room. The bathroom was also small. Everything was clean.
We ate dinner in the dining room at extra cost. We were placed right next to a small fireplace - gas heater which was pleasant. The service was slow and not attentive; however, our meals were good. I enjoyed a local dessert of figs and cheese with some hot chocolate - a nice treat before heading up to our room. We asked for someone to come and light the fireplace and start the hot waters in our room.
The room is chilly; however, as this was my second trip, I was not surprised and completely prepared. There were plenty of blankets and while I wish that the fire had lasted a little longer, was not bothered.
We enjoyed the thermal pools during the evening and then, early in the morning before anyone else was up. It was very relaxing and a pleasant experience.
Breakfast was part of the price. It was simple, but good. For those concerned about the instant coffee, this seems to be the norm rather than the exception. I always ordered mine with hot milk, while my companion ordered his with hot water.
Overall, I would return here again. It was not crowded and we did enjoy our stay.
