Just spent a wonderful evening as part of 50th celebrations with 3 friends. The break consisted of . Check in at 2pm, 25 minute treatment,evening meal and breakfast the following morning.
I decided to book an Afternoon Tea at 12 pm as an extra treat.
We arrived and were made extremely welcome and shown to our table by the wonderfully welcome monk Alex who was extremely attentive to our every need. Excellent service.
Shown to our rooms which were both clean and comfortable, and a lovely touch to leave a lovely selection Of chocolates and a handwritten card wishing us a lovely stay.
First 2 girls headed off to their treatment while we put our champagne on ice.. The ice bucket and glasses we requested were delivered promptly, with a smile..
We then headed for our treatment. Slight hiccup when we had no clue where the spa was and in trying to locate it p, were 10 minutes late for a 25 minute treatment. The therapists were lovely and did their best to ensure we still had full treatment even although they were booked back to back.a tip here would be to book treatment well in advance , and to give yourself a little time after checking in to settle in room before your treatment time. We found ourselves quite rushed between checking in and rushing straight to treatment. Spa facilities excellent. Lovely pool, sauna and jacuzzi.
Meal was served by very attentive staff, and food was delicious although the 3 of us that had ordered chicken found our food only just 'warm' and not nearly hot enough!! We did not wish any deserts although plenty to choose from and instead opted for the cheese board... Hiccup.. No cheese!!! As way of compensation we were offered a liqueur of our choice by john the restaurant manager.. We were led through to the beautiful open fire lounge for our complimentary drinks. The fire was expertly lit by the the jovial night porter Jim!!breakfast was in form of buffet and there is an excellent choice for all tastes.. Though as you always tend to find with buffet style.. Not really hot enough.
We had a wonderful stay at Ardoe House and would most definately return. Thank you to all the staff from the 4 girls who all turned up dressed as Audrey Hepburn. X
