I'm a bit late reviewing this as we stayed at the end of November 2013!
Having dined at the restaurant several times and loving it, my husband booked an overnight stay to celebrate our anniversary along with a massage for us both.
We arrived to see that the Christmas decorations were up - I love the way they decorate the hotel and restaurant, so was pleased to see the decs!
Our room was on the ground floor located by the spa and was lovely. Sort of modern New England style and the bathroom was fab. Huge bath with powerful shower and complimentary Elemis toiletries.
I particularly liked the room as it had french doors which led onto its own little terrace area(facing the car park but screened by a well landscaped courtyard area). My only gripe about the room would be that there was obviously a service alley beside it and it could be a little noisy at certain times
After checking in we had a couple of hours in the room just relaxing before walking the 10 yards to the spa for our massage!The therapists were welcoming and not too chatty and the massage was lovely.
We were booked in for dinner and, as usual, it didn't disappoint. Always enjoy the evening menu here.
The breakfast the next day was unfortunately not so good. The dining room was extremely busy and we had to wait for a table. The cooked breakfast was a little underwhelming and we had to wait for several items.
My husband booked me a facial after breakfast as a surprise and Florian, the receptionist, was lovely and changed our check out time to accommodate this.
Again my therapist was good and I had a really lovely facial.
Although not entirely perfect (is anything?!) we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend The Roslin Beach - whenever we've been we've enjoyed it and the staff have always been extremely professional and efficient, always checking to see if we need anything/if everything is ok.
