Perfect break away from it all
From the moment I pressed the buzzer on the front gate, I felt well looked after & relaxed. The reception staff are chatty, friendly and professional. In fact, all of the staff are great! It really makes a difference.
The rooms are a very good size, with a balcony overlooking the grounds. The beds are so comfy, they can be hard to leave, but the food and spa make it worth it. The breakfast has plenty of variety - with options to be as healthy or indulgent as you wish. The spa cafe provides light lunches to tide you over until dinner, and then there's afternoon tea available in the old house if you're still hungry! Both restaurant dining options for the evening are tasty, with local products, great flavours and choice.
The spa never feels to busy, even when the hotel is close to full, which is impressive. The choice of spa rooms/options is great - can get as hot or as cool as you like. The relaxation rooms ARE relaxing - the gentle snoring that can be heard in the dark relaxation room is kinda cute. Treatments aren't cheap, but are very good. Not really required though, with everything else on offer.
Looking forward to going back!
Tips - book dinner well in advance, it books up quickly. Don't leave dinner too late - it gets quieter, as many people seem to opt for earlier sittings.
