Took advantage of the Living Social offer and at £75 for B&B plus 1/2 hour treatment for 2 good value for money. We were located in the old part of the manor house which has lots of character, receptionist very friendly and room clean with tea and coffee making facilities and nice view of gardens.
Not many in hotel that night so lounge, dining room etc virutally empty but had drinks and dinner a deux, steak well cooked and nice home made chips but as there were only two of us in dining room that night presentation left a lot to be desired, even a bowl on the side for the chips would have been preferable to them being tipped onto the plate, which resulted in them spilling onto the table when I tried to cut the steak, nothing major but small things do make a difference. Goats cheese and beetroot starter on rather wet salad again lacked presentation but really at this price cant expect The Ritz as another traveller stated.
Breakfast was ok, grapefruit had strange taste and my friend had to ask for her toast twice as it didn't arrive with her breakfast, white toast arrived when brown requested so had to wait again for the brown hence breakfast nearly finished when it finally arrived, maybe writing things down might help, it wasn't busy.
Spa treatment was fine nice back massage but my friend felt she didn't get the full half hour. Spa area although small looked fine jacuzzi, small pool, sauna etc. they are obviously making improvements all the time here and we would return, juding by the managements response to any negative comments made on TA they are acting on them which can only be good.
