My husband and I stayed here for a relaxing weekend. We booked one of the bedrooms looking over the gardens. It was lovely, really peaceful, and the gardens are stunning. My only criticism was that the room and bathroom were a little on the small side, but apart from that you couldn't fault it.
We booked into the Garden spa for a massage and it was amazing - we both really enjoyed it. When I came out of my massage I decided to go and sit by the pool to chill out a bit. Unfortunately the pool area was dominated by a family with 2 young boys who were screaming at the top of their voices. After about 10 minutes I gave up and went back to my room.
What a shame...
Despite the hotel literature on the spa being a place of tranquility, this was not my experience. The pool area is actually quite small. I don't think young children should be allowed in this area...
It has certainly made me re-think when booking spa breaks - I'll be checking whether children are allowed to use the facilities.
