The spa facilities were amazing- we loved the flotation tank and the indoor heated pool. The food at the restaurant was delicious and there was great variety. The service was excellent-with friendly staff and thoughtful touches:) The only thing we could recommend is for the rooms to be upgraded/ updated as the price per night is quite high.

My Mom & I were given a voucher for 1 nights stay. Included was the use of flotation pool, massage & facial. We added a pedicure & manicure.
The spa staff were friendly & very welcoming. Their massages were fantastic & very knowledgable with the skin. It was pure heaven.
The food was delicious. Although quite rich.
The room was large & spacious. Everything from beds to shower was comfy & clean.
Definitely a must to stay

For starters the room and the décor were absolutely fabulous and we couldn’t have wished for anything better. On our first day we had a steam bath, then did a few lengths in the indoor pool before trying out the flotation pool which was our first experience of anything like this and can only be summed up as highly recommended. We ended the day with a first-class dinner at the restaurant before retiring to the lounge for a drink next to a warm and homely fire. You just can’t help but unwind.

Day two started with an “out of this world” breakfast. There is so much choice on the menu that’s it hard deciding what to have, and we were both very happy that we knew we still had one more breakfast to come the next day. Both us then had a full massage and my wife stayed to have a few more treatments while I soaked up some winter sun alongside your outdoor pool. An afternoon rest followed by a further steam bath and flotation pool experience rounded off another extremely pleasant and relaxing day. We had skipped lunch as we knew we had another fabulous dinner lined up the restaurant and we were certainly not disappointed. Both my wife and I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. Interesting bed time stories rounded off another splendid day.

A special mention to all your staff who couldn’t have been more friendly, from the ladies tending the gardens to the spa ladies, and to your restaurant and reception staff. All added to make it a most enjoyable and pleasant stay.
