This was my first stay at Champneys since the refurbishment. I have to say before I review Forest Mere, I love the place. The setting by the lake is superb, the bedrooms are comfortable, the staff are friendly. The new decor is neutral and calm.
My treatments were as good as I've come to expect.
There were just a small number of niggles for me.
I know it's a spa, however I would have expected a wider choice of cakes than there were. On more than one occasion it was a choice of a cake, a muffin, or food in packets. There was more choice before the refurb ... And very little packeted food!
A couple of the dishes in the evening were a little - meh. Food is a very personal thing, but both my friend and I (albeit on separate occasions) wished we'd chosen something else. Personally I would avoid the chickpea noodles, but again that's my taste and choice.
Still, it's still worthwhile for a couple of days' relaxation and we will be back as soon as possible.More
