Mu husband bought us a Winter Spa experience (one hour treatment, full access to the spa, champagne 2 course lunch included). The Spa is small but has been done beautifully. The only disappointment was the Relaxation Room which was a bit like a waiting room and not very warm so we weren't tempted to go in. We arrived about 10.30 and had the place to ourselves which was lovely. We had half an hour to try out the spa facilities. The Experience Shower didn't really work but the hot tub, sauna and steam room were just fine. We had massages for an hour - absolute bliss! - then another hour in the spa until lunch. People were beginning to come in as we came out of our massages and I can imagine it getting very crowded very quickly. We went over to the main hotel (the spa is a small building behind the main hotel building) for lunch. We were brought drinks and menus in the lounge, very nice. We had to wait about 30 mins for lunch from ordering, but bubbly was waiting on the table when we got there, which helped! The rooms in the hotel were all very lovely and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Lunch was delicious! We went for 3 courses instead of the two and had some wine with the main course. All in all it only added about another £20 to the day. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and wine and again, service was very good. We would be more than happy to repeat our experience there and might even try it for lunch or dinner (we live about 40 minutes away).
