We booked a Groupon spa deal and again, after reading reviews on here was slightly dubious but every experience seems to be different for everyone!
On arrival at the spa it seemed a bit disorganised and not very professional, the beauticians weren't as experienced as they should have been but the pool area was lovely, there were no children in the pool at the time (it wouldn't bother me but I know some people like peace and quiet) and we moved to the bar for lunch and sat outside in the beautiful weather. The kitchen were busy with preparing food for a party but the waitress who served us was very kind and helpful. Food was good but expensive and not healthy enough for a spa day really! Afternoon tea looked gorgeous though!
Hotel and grounds are lovely so I really think your experience depends on your expectations of the spa and which staff are working! We would try again though...
