Myself and my friend booked in to Bellinter house (spa) for a back massage followed by a light lunch in the drawing room. The house is absolutely beautiful and is situated in a tranquil and picturesque setting. You feel like you have gone back in time. The spa experience was lovely, and staff very friendly. Lunch was very nice, the chunky chips are so tasty. Unfortunately what really let it down for us was the cleanliness of the spa and drawing room. It seems such a shame to have such a beautiful home, great treatments, friendly staff and great food to let it lack in such trivial areas.
The small serving cups we were given as part of our starter were filthy and needed a good bleach.
The spa beds in the relaxation room were supposed to be cream but were yellow and brown with stains.
The window in the relaxation room which you sit and peacefully gaze out of to appreciate the views was very dirty.
The drawing room is a magnificent room, with beautiful large windows, which boast fantastic views onto the river.
Unfortunately again, tables were dirty, seats were stained with dried in food. We chose to eat in the bar area as they had 'proper' tables with stools (only 2 tables though). Otherwise we would have been crouched over our food as all of the other tables and chairs are coffee tables and couches/ chairs. I don't know how people are supposed to eat in that position!
Such a shame to let such a wonderful place slip in areas which could otherwise make all the difference.
