We stayed at the Life House for 1 nights an a dinner, bed and breakfast deal including a treatment.
The spa is set in beautiful grounds.
Check in was swift and easy. We were shown to our room. We had a beautiful room with a view across the garden. However the key card did not work, but a maintenance guy came up with in 5 minutes to rectify the problem. There was a tiny window on the side wall of the bedroom that has no use at all. Why? The bright daylight woke us up very early in the morning. Used a cushion to block out the light.
Our treatments were excellent. Ask for Lilly.
Dinner was also included. The restaurant was not very busy. We were kept waiting at the entrance for around 4 minutes before being shown to our table. The specials were explained to us and our drinks order was taken, a bottle of wine and a jug of iced water. The bottle of wine arrived after a wait of some 10 minutes. The water did not appear at all and I had to ask again for it.
The food was good, however the chicken breast on the menu was described as stuffed. When the dish came it was a sliced breast. On asking why it was different from the menu I was informed by the waiter that he did not know, but that it was indeed the same as the menu but just not stuffed.
When the sweet arrived I had to ask for cutlery, I was bought a fork and a soup spoon.
Overall experience was good but a little more attention to detail in the restaurant would have made it great
