One night stay booked as a treat after a busy year where we didn't have time for a longer holiday. Priced reasonably. Service on reception very friendly and efficient. Car parking easy but can't remember if we had to pay for it.
The swimming pool/sauna area was fine - the steam room was out of order for part of the afternoon but this is a niggle rather than a disaster.
The spa was very good and we both enjoyed a massage as an extra treat. A little expensive but treatment rooms, insurance, running costs and everything else has to be paid for I suppose - like any business. The bar was stylish yet welcoming with very good service and no need to wait to order at the bar. The nibbles of olives and crisps were welcome and of high quality. Beer (bitter) and wine (rose) both of good quality and not that expensive for an hotel.
The meal in the restaurant was excellent. Aged balsamic vinegar was new to me and quite addictive. My main of steak was very tender indeed, to the extent that I wondered if it had been cooked sous vide? I don't know but it was tender and tasty whatever. Service excellent. I suspect many people visit the hotel just to go to the restaurant and that would make sense.
On a less positive note, the bedroom was roasting hot all night and all attempts at us using the air conditioner failed - it simply did not seem to work. Opening the window was the only option but this is not ideal on a windy night. Aside from that the room was comfy and quiet enough, although I never seem to find a hotel room anywhere that is really really quiet.
Overall a positive experience as the rating suggests. Clearly a well designed and well run hotel and somewhere we would return to for a similar trip.
