Setting, décor, staff and treatments were all flawless. However, I wouldn't come back again as the options for communal reclining was so limited. Could either choose from 1. by the indoor pool which was unbearably sweltering or 2. outside the pool lined up like sardines...More

Spent a fabulous weekend here. Staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. Amazing food. Vegan options very well catered for. Spa is nice but was busy. Mews houses with outdoor hottubs are divine.
