First of all, notice that every negative review of this property was left by reviewers whose only review was of the Medbery. Secondly, notice that virtually all of them were more than a year old. The negative comments are so absurd they're almost certainly fake.
I have used the day spa at the Medbery twice before, and am just enjoying the last night of a Girlfriends' Getaway. The room is beautiful, the breakfast was delicious and a wonderful lunch from the Whistling Kettle was included. The jacuzzi was clean and the bathroom was lovely. In addition, they use high quality towels - not the pumice-scrubbers that most hotels use.
Even the little pullout bed in the deluxe room was very comfortable.
The Girlfriends' Getaway is a little expensive, and if you break down what you get for what you pay, it may not seem like a "bargain" (actually, I'm pretty sure there's no actual savings off the regular separate prices). But we had a wonderful time and the spa services were very professional.
This place would not be in business for as long as it has been if those negative reviews were even remotely true. Read them with caution, then make an appointment and see for yourself. It wouldn't surprise me if they were written by ringers being paid by business rivals. Ridiculous.
