I've stayed in Hotels from Volgograd to New York on every continent and this is the most bizarre!
It is a complex built on an old farming hamlet, incorporating the old farm manor and surrounding workers cottages. It was converted into the hotel and 'mock' tudor village in the 1960's.
The hotel is nice with the staff we met in the hotel and spa all being helpful, efficient and friendly.
We had specifically booked a twin room but had been given a double, but this was quickly changed by reception staff.
My friend and I were on a spa break deal. Our treatments were good and the therapists were competent and friendly. Our package included bathrobes and slippers.
The relaxation area had 8 large comfy leather chairs and there was another area with tables and chairs. As it was very busy, people were getting a little 'stressed' over seat availability.
The leisure facilities were okay. A good sized, rectangular pool and a decent sized thermal suite with a jacuzzi, two saunas and 3 not so warm, in fact tepid, steam rooms. Areas of the spa were a bit 'faded and jaded'.
The room was nice, a great size, with a queen size bed and a single, with a lovely clean and modern bathroom.
The restaurant and bar were, well, just weird! It was like sitting in a converted mock tudor barn!! The public areas really are in need of updating and bringing into the 21st century! The bar is listed as a cocktail bar - it isn't.
The food, however, was super. We had afternoon tea in the spa and dinner and both were excellent. The afternoon tea was large with 4 different really lovely sandwiches, a scone with jam and clotted cream and a selection of 3 mini cakes.
The dinner package was a set menu of the day with a choice of 4 starters & mains. The food was beautifully presented and of a surprisingly high standard.
The tea shop in the village was less good; understaffed with un defrosted cakes and slightly stroppy staff.
