We booked a two night stay through "Secret Escapes" which meant that we saved about 50% off the normal price. This included breakfast and one night fine dining. All of the food was fantastic, the fine dining comes off a set menu which was a bit limited but you can choose off the a la carte menu as well with a couple of extra pounds supplement.
The staff were brilliant, very helpful and always with a smile on their faces, also more than happy to have a chat. At dinner, we did have to wait for some service (not too long) this was mainly due to the ratio of guests to waiters.
The room was lovely, it has its shower room open to the bedroom which was fine for couples who aren't too prudish about their shower activities!!! I'm sure there are other styles of rooms for those who are, and for those groups going on a guys/girls trip away.
Views were spectacular, especially from the balcony which I believe every room has.
The spa was very nice with the infinity pool being a nice touch. It is a good size pool with a lane for those who wish to do some proper lengths. We came in the off-season so it was quiet but I can imagine, in the peak season, could be quite crowded.
The only reason we gave this hotel 4/5 rather than the full 5 is that the drinks are quite pricey. £10 for a pint and a small glass of wine is bit excessive.
