We booked a spa break at Sopwell House on lastminute.com which included a nights stay, 2 25minute treatments, use of the spa facilities, 3 course dinner, as well as breakfast and lunch on the day of departure.
The hotel is set in beautiful grounds and the room was lovely - nice decor, comfortable bed, sky TV, modern bathroom. The food was really tasty - especially the 3 course dinner we had in the Brasserie. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming.
The spa treatments were very enjoyable and relaxing, although you do have to walk through the hotel (out of the spa) in your gown to get to the treatment rooms, which is a little odd.
The one negative we found with the spa was...children! Once we'd had our relaxing treatments and made our way back down to the spa area (pool, small jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and lots of comfortable beds to relax on) we found that the pool had several children playing in it. They were very well behaved children, but they were making noise - splashing, shouting, laughing etc. This did create a less-than-relaxing atmosphere, and was a surprise to both my partner and I. We found out later that children are allowed to use the pool at certain times of day, but we hadn't realised this before booking our break. It was half-term so perhaps we should have expected this, so be aware when booking that there may be children in the spa area, which is not something I have previously experienced at other spas.
