My friend and I booked in for a Sunday night we got a winter spa break deal which included dinner, bed and breakfast and use of the spa and a 20 min treatment each for £155 all in (we paid £25 each to upgrade that to a 1 hour treatment each).
On arrival the staff were really friendly and informative about hotel, facilities and the surrounding area. We found we had also been given a graden view room as the hotel was quiet, the room was large, clean and fully equipped with flat screen TV, and tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc.
We had a great view of the garden which even in Winter looked well maintained.
Evening meal was delicious, we had plenty of choice on the deal we had booked and even got a free glass of wine. Staff were again polite and attentive. Also drinks are reasonable at the hotel bar.
We went out in the evening and it is a good 10-15 min walk into the centre but there was plenty of bars along the way and I needed the walk after a big meal.
At breakfast there is a huge choice available and it was again delicious and the waiter was lovely .
As for the spa my friend and I thought it was fantastic sat in the hot tub outside in the sunshine as it was a lovely day you are tucked away at the bottom of the garden and not overlooked you have a huge bathrobe to walk to and from your room and we didnt feel uncomfortable walking about.
We had two people for treatments Mary who was fantastic and gave me a lymph and drain masage (fabulous hangover cure and my skin looks great) and another lady who gave my friend a really relaxing hot stone massage.
Trying to arrange a big girly trip for the summer when the pool is open and maybe tie into the races.
Only thing I will say is take your flip flops I forgot mine and looked pretty comical in my heels and bathrobe!!!
