It was indeed a good deal, although a mistake was made with the bill as we left. The staff were very friendly, but also very young and I'm not sure they were all that experienced hence the mistake.
The room was quite large and well equipped with storage space. The beds comfortable and the linen clean and good quality. The bathroom however could do with a little attention.
I was surprised to read in other reviews that the food was poor. This was certainly not my experience, apart from the scrambled eggs at breafast, which tasted as though they had been microwaved. I was quite surprised that no alternative to butter was offered at breakfast, but was served when requested. The creme brulee and the malteser cake, at dinner, were heavenly.
The treatments included in the offer were great, room warm and comfortable and the girls friendly and did their utmost to put one at ease.
The swimming pool is very small, but as there were few people staying when we were there it did not matter. I liked the dressing gowns that were provided which meant that you did not change or shower there, but go back to your room an there was no need to use lockers.
There were a lot of stairs and corridors, but unless you are unfit or have no sense of direction this is not a problem, however there was a strange smell in some of the areas. I think coming from the kitchen.
All in all it was a good stay.
