The brochureware and website will deceive many a traveller / spa goer. We booked this because it was literally the only reasonable looking place available at the last minute on a busy August Saturday. We paid a (reduced!) rate of £172 for a Superior room that apart from a lick of paint hasn't been updated since 1981 when the hotel was first converted. Fluorescent strip lights in the carpeted (yuk) bathroom, knackered faded furnishings and old storage heaters. I would value it at around £30pp.
The reception area and dining room don't feature in publicity materials for a reason - again not updated since the early eighties. We didn't eat there as the dining room really smelt of the kitchens.
As far as the spa is concerned, the staff were top notch - very helpful and friendly. But they are working in a bewildering jumble of rooms / areas all cluttered with various merchandising displays, panels and artefacts - not exactly a calming environment. And the poolside is, wait for it... carpeted. How do they clean it?
The good staff, nice grounds and old building aren’t enough for the room rates – Cedar Falls needs a massive overhaul.
