The hotel itself might not be everyone's cup of Tea, decorated quite minimalistic with cold colors and sharpe edges. I however fund it quite enlightening. The spa area is not oversized compared by the to the sleeping facilities, but it never felt crowned during our stay. We stayed from Tuesday to Wednesday during Easter. We dinned in the hotel restaurant and the menu and food served was satisfying. The selections of expensive wines was impressive, but the low budget/ middle range assortment was clearly not prioritised. I would also like to point out that our waitress did not exactly make us feel comfortable ordering the "cheapest" wine. She clearly need some more practise in hospitality management. But let's face it one does not travel to Farris bad to eat dinner. As for the breakfast this was well assorted and excellent, however one would have preferred been guided to a table and perhaps getting fresh coffee.
The thing that I like the most about the SPA was the sauna and relaxation bath areal placed a bit down the hall from the other facilities. Just walk past the solariums. It had large windows with excellent sea view and even a stairway down to the sea. Bathing in the sea in march is surly underestimated. This was heaven.
I would gladly go back, but perhaps I would try to find a restaurant in the city centre next time. This is a far as I can see Farris Bads weakest link.
