Last Saturday, we decided to drop into Chewton Glen to look at the Spa. We had just checked out from our previous night's stay at a thoroughly disappointing 4 star hotel and spa in Christchurch.
We were shown around the spa and went to the bar for a pot of tea for me and a beer for my husband. There was a family in there with a crying child but once his lunch arrived, he settled down. We took our time over our drinks, savouring the great atmosphere and friendly banter between the bar staff. Finally, we decided to have a bar snack. We just had sandwiches which were delicious and came with a small salad and crisps. Another drink each and in total our bill including service was £32 which was reasonable. (Not sure the pot of tea justified its £4.75 price tag).
Spending 2 hours there was enough to bring the stress levels down before we hit the summer holiday motorway traffic for them to rise again!
The staff are exceptional, the service excellent and there was no stuffiness about the hotel.
Amusing to us, was the 2 older ladies who were so obviously putting on posh accents and talking loudly to attract attention. At the other extreme were the party of 4 where the 2 men obviously thought they were in their local Wetherspoons as they sat sprawled on the settee, legs akimbo!
We have decided to return for a weekend break later this year and looking forward to experiencing the spa.
