    This is gonna sound weird I'm sure, but I'm a larger lady and am concerned the robes won't fit me, are they sized or one size fits all! If sized can you request a bigger one?

    Hi, I am due to visit in a few weeks with a group of friends. I have been several times and have absolutely love my stay, however, I've not done so for almost two years and the negative reviews of late are really worrying me. Has it got that bad?

    I was worried too reading some of the reviews. I went last week and had the most lovely time and really enjoyed it! So in my personal opinion I don't think you have anything to worry about
