my mum got me a voucher for christmas for champagne afternoon tea and access to the leisure facilities for the day. her and i arrived 21/01/13 which was a very snowy day, and because the roads were quite bad we arrived slightly later than we thought. we had booked our afternoon tea for 2pm but as we did not want to rush our use of the leisure facilities we asked at reception and the restaurant if we could delay our booking. the staff were extremely friendly and said that this was no problem.
the leisure facilities themselves were well taken care of, and clean for the most part. the pool was warm... amazing! i had braced myself for freezing water but it was a pleasure to swim in, and the steam room, while small, was cosy. i have to say that sitting in the jacuzzi while looking out the window at the falling snow was bliss. also, it seemed like quite a few local people use the facilities which says a lot about its good standards.
the afternoon tea was served to us by Lena (spelling?) who was polite and welcoming. the restaurant was not busy so it seemed like the wait for our drinks and food was a bit excessive, but being in the restaurant industry myself i reasoned that our food would be freshly made. sandwiches were nice (just not enough for me as i was really hungry after my swim!), and the cakes were well portioned and yummy.
all in all we had a very good relaxing day out, and i would definitely recommend the hotel to others, and would like to stay over in the near future.
