Needing some rest and relaxation I used our Breakaway Club offer of £45 for Sunday night stays and added the Monday night to give me a 2 night break. Hubby stayed with me Sunday night and I had a peaceful solo night on Monday.
Check in was easy and I even managed to get a cheeky upgrade to one of the large old rooms in the main old part of the Hall. Room 3103 was at the far end of the old part, and was very peaceful as no rooms above and just 2 rooms nearby. Huge bed, nice seating area (although sofa springs had gone!), desk and chair, lovely split level bathroom with double sized shower cubicle and massive deep bath underneath a very pretty stained glass rooflight. Had issues with the old plumbing (toilet blocked pretty much every time you used it!) but the water was nice and hot.
Spa & brasserie in the new part seemed like a long trek - until we discovered a quick way down the stairs opposite our room which looked like they didn't go anywhere. Lovely meal in the brasserie, large char grilled chicken breast for me and smallish pressed cylinder of lamb shoulder for hubby were delicious, but mains rather expensive (duck was £20!). We were a little bemused at being offered the table next to a couple with a child when there was nobody else at at all in the restaurant and we were obviously a young couple on our own having a romantic dinner. I asked for a quiet corner instead and we were seated well away from said child! Breakfast good, poached eggs to order were fine and cooked buffet looked fine.
Leisure centre was nice and quiet when I went in on the Monday, with good up to date equipment with i-pod docks etc. Pool lovely, as were sauna and steam rooms. It was nice and peaceful as the hotel was very quiet, but I'd imagine the leisure centre would be very busy when the hotel is full which would spoil it.
Staff are great. Check out on Tuesday fine, offer of help with bags and offer for a look at the modern rooms when I enquired what they were like. Drove round to the spa for my treatment to avoid the trek back through the hotel afterwards. I'd booked the ESPA holistic back, face and scalp treatment with hot stones which was worth every penny of the £85 for almost 2 hours of sheer bliss. The therapist Carol Blood was amazing, very friendly and knowledgable and tailored bits of the treatment based on my circumstances (recent stress at work and dodgy neck/back). I left feeling fabulous. Can't wait to go back again.
