My family and I went on the Triple Treat package and I have to say it is one of the best value breaks that I have ever been on. The room was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and as efficient as they could be (I will get back to that). The food was as ever really excellent. Unfortunatly the management seem to be running the hotel on a shoe string. It was very understaffed, I felt sorry for the staff struggling to keep up with the amount of guests there, althought they never complained and always had a smile. We had one of our evening meals in the restaurant, the food and service was 1st class, but they have stopped using linnen table cloths as they used to, no candles and the cutlery was old and miss matched. The towels in the bedrooms were old scratchy and one had a huge brown makeup stain on it. It would have been easier to find out what was going on in fort knox as to find out what was on offer in the spa (no information in the rooms). My final gripe was the Wi Fi we had to get passwords every day for our 3 phones and lap tops (what a pain). But I will end on the note of don't let these things put you off, the staff's friendliness and great food and great offers will bring me back there again.
