My husband and I spent a 4 night break over Christmas 2011 and we had an absolutely marvellous time. Yes it was quite expensive but this meant that you were with like minded people and also there were quite a few little extras included, like the wetsuits for the Xmas day swim and pre dinner drinks.
I was surprised to read some of the reviews about the service on here because we received brilliant service from genuine and friendly staff without exception. The 4 day break with everybody there for the same time worked really well as we got to know a lot of the other guests as well as the staff and the atmosphere was really lovely, relaxing and welcoming.
We enjoyed the itinerary of optional events and took part in quite a few- wine tasting, yoga, nordic walking; there was something for everybody. The rooms are spotless and we found the "just right" plenty big enough - although I would agree with the reviewer who said that the loo is distinctly lacking in privacy so you wouldn't want to go there with a new partner!
I could go on all day but better mention the food, which was sublime, without exception and plenty of it. Afternoon tea with warm, freshly baked scones every afternoon was impossible to resist, although some savoury snacks might be a nice addition.
We will be back!!!
