I stayed her with a group of ladies in March for a Spa weekend. We paid £135 each for a shared twin room with use of the spa, one treatment, breakfast and dinner.
The hotel is situated on a hill with 360 degree vista of the surrounding countryside, beautiful but very cold and windy when we were there. The spa was one of the nicest I have visited and the facial I had left my skin feeling soft and smooth for days.
I could not fault the size and comfort of the bedroom and well appointed modern bathroom which was situated in the spa block.
Staff at the hotel were pleasant and the service good.
As part of the package we had a 3 course meal in Mr Fred's. The menu was odd and I found it very difficult to select a balanced option although the quality of the food was decent enough. At breakfast I enjoyed smoked salmon with scrambled egg and toasted brioche which was lovely but luke warm. As a bonus the orange juice on the buffet table was served by Tess Daly who was staying at the hotel for a family wedding!!!
I would stay here again and recommend it to others however next time I would opt for the slightly more expensive option to dine in the Grill on the Hill. Had the food option been more inspiring I would have awarded 5 stars.
