We had one of the rooms with a hot tub which was nicely decorated and very clean. Note no tea and coffee facilities in the room you have to order this from reception.
Spa was the biggest let down. Pool was not working. we had hoped to spend half a day there but there are no lounging areas, it is VERY small. We had done the rounds of the shower, sauna and steam room a few times and had enough after 45 min, gutted.
We would recommend the 7 course taster menu though, great value for money for a special occasion. Food was lovely and LOTS of it!
Another let down was the robotic service we had. Waitresses would deliver food and then vanish to the kitchen. Service did not match to food standard. Bar area empty on August bank holiday, no atmosphere at all.
Surroundings are lovely and reception staff and cleaning lady particularly lovely and friendly.
If you get this place at a bargain then it is worth it but do not pay full price, you will be very unhappy!!
