My husband and I stayed for one night on a groupon deal, which included bed, breakfast, 2 course dinner and use of the spa. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the beautiful building in its immaculate grounds, and were given a brief tour of the main areas before being shown to our room. We had been upgraded to a HUGE family room with massive ensuite. It was very clean and beautifully furnished and decorated. We went to use the spa, which had been pointed out to us on our tour, but it was a maze with insufficient signage. It would have been better if we had been given a tour of that too! It took us about 10 minutes to find our way to the pools, then we had to go back through the maze to find reception to get towels. Once we settled it was very relaxing, although there were quite a few children until 6pm.
The evening meal was pleasant but not extraordinary, but we did feel under pressure to order extras. Our prepaid deal was for two courses and when we asked for a main instead of a starter we were made to feel uncomfortable. Also, when we only ordered a glass of wine (enough as my husband doesn't drink) an issue was made of taking away excess wine glasses. We were offered water, then charged £4.10 for a 500ml bottle! The wine was also very expensive! We were also told we needed to order a side order of vegetables as this was not included in the meal.
Value wise, it was expensive but good quality. The hotel itself was very pleasant, but the staff need to relax and let people enjoy themselves without putting pressure on to spend more money, before I'd consider giving it an excellent.
