This by far has to be the most relaxing hotels and comfortable that i have stayed in. I don't sleep to well in any hotel but i got a whole nights sleep and more here.....
When you arrive at the gates a the entrance you buzz reception who open gates and welcome you at the steps into the old house. You don't carry your any of your bags in you leave them in the car and is valet parked. You go through the old house through glass corridor to reception are. Here you are welcomed with a shot of fresh smoothie. Everything is explained to you and you are walked to your room and shown around the room ie on how everything works where the switches are etc.
Nothing is too much for the staff here and you are encouraged throughout your stay to unwind and leave the outside world behind. Much of the day is spent in your rope from breakfast with the exception that you must dress for dinner. Mobile phones are requested to be switched off, newspapers are available in the old house and you are asked to leave them there. It in some ways this place would remind you of the Priory clinic but in a good way. (I haven't been there but hope you understand my comparison)
Rooms are spacious and very clean. The colour's are neutral tones quite pale. The bed was fabulous extremely comfortable best i have had to date. Bathroom big with power shower and nicely decorated. Only downside to the room was the TV, very cheap model with poor sound quality. There is a selection of DVD's at reception but the sound was too crackly so didn't watch them.
The decor and furniture throughout the hotel is stunning.
The Spa was spotless and had everything you needed. A little downside was the hydro pool was quite small for those who would have liked a swim. There was complimentary foot massages from the staff while you soaked your feet. I could go on but overall it is easy to understand why it is rated one of the top destination spa's in the Europe. The hotel is built around the spa, you go for the Spa and have the advantage to get a night s sleep also.
I found the food and drinks a little on the pricey side, in saying that the restaurant was fabulous very informal and relaxed. The breakfast was brilliant such a great selection from the buffet all fresh and healthy best i have had to date.
In essence this hotel is somewhere you go to escape and forget about home, work and all the rest of the stress. I stayed for 3 nights and would most certainly advise a minimum of 2 nights to really avail of the benefits.
