We stayed here in April.
My boyfriend booked it as a surprise for my birthday (brownie points!!).
We visited on a sunday and had the Movies Package which meant we got to enjoy the room and watch a film. We also had a massage in the Spa and dinner in the restaurant.
The room was gorgeous. Really pretty. The bathroom was very swanky and all was clean and neat. He'd booked the movies pack as we'd had a big weekend celebrating my birthday so was really nice to just chill out in some luxury. A good selection of films available and we really enjoyed it.
Has a great massage in the Spa, the only thing i would say about it is that it was quite short. I'd glanced at my watch when taking it off and when putting it back on again. Was only 20mins of actual treatment. And the massages we paid for were billed as 30. I understand the need to have a consultation period and to allow the client to get dressed etc (i am a therapist mysefl!) but normally this is extra time on the session - eg 40mins total time spent, 30 of it treatment, 10 for consult and dressing etc. The girl was great though and i enjoyed the massage - just wish it had been longer!
We then used the pool and sauna etc. Some great facilities however the changing rooms were quite grubby and messy and the floor in there was soaking wet. I know the health facilities are open to the public so assume that this is just because it gets a lot of through traffic each day.
The food - My god! Amzing! Absolutely amazing. We had the Chateau Briand.... incredible. Worth the price. And the staff were just lovely. The same with breakfast too. I really enjoyed it and the staff were great, really helpful and attentive.
All in all i loved my Birthday treat. The hotel and grounds are amazing and the staff were all great.
