I organised for a group of 9 of us to stay in this hotel and can say the whole experience was amazing.
The reception were extremely helpful when organising the rooms and they also enabled me to see the rooms before going ahead with the bookings. We also had to change our request the week before we arrived and they were fantastic about it.
Myself and 3 friends shared an exec room, which was lovely but not a 'proper' exec room. The bathroom was very big but the room was quite small for an exec room but overall fantastic. We had a dressing/walk in wardrobe & a huge 50inch plasma screen plus an ipod dock. It was great.
I also arranged for the private dining room on the Friday evening and it was amazing. We were able to decorate the table as we wished with name cards etc and they played our chosen music into the room - it was great!
The food was amazing!!! We were lucky to qualify for the two night mini break which came with a complimentary bottle of wine per room and £30 towards the meal. As we had 4 rooms it was fantastic value for money. The duck was amazing!!!!
Location wise it's great - 2 mins from the spa baths and just down the hill from the main town.
We also visited bettys for lunch which was nice but overrated and the spa baths - again very good but be aware it's not as good as conventional spa with a swimming pool etc. it's very small and they squeeze you all in.
As it was a party we hired the vodka booth at Revolution which was very good - the staff were excellent.
Breakfast in the hotel was also exceptional - it was hot buffet style served in the restaurant downstairs. The only one negative thing was the constant smell of chinese food which is served on the evening.
Finally, they had a lovely outdoor area to sit with heaters.
Overall great weekend, wonderful hotel - very accomodating!
