We stayed for one night in May over the weekend.
The receptionist we had was awful, we checked in at 11am as advised when booking and was told we were too early. She eventually told us we could use the spa but wouldn't allow us access to our suitcases to retrieve our swimsuits!! Luckily another member of staff interveaned and we were allowed access to our property!! After this, she told us to come back to reception at 3pm to be shown around (obviously we didn't bother). She then gave us incorrect directions to our room which had us wandering around for ages trying to find it, once we did the keys didn't work, so we had to go back to reception...
As a result of not being shown around we had to discover things such as needing to book lunch and dinner, where to go for treatments, etc ourselves.
Lunch and dinner were OK but much like what you would get in an all inclusive hotel in Tenerife, so not exclusive at all. The spa facilities, were again OK but nothing special, the room was bland and much like any other hotel. The staff were friendly and walks around the grounds were good.
The thing is, Champneys are selling high turnover, low overhead packages to the masses. This was clearly apparent as soon as I saw lunch. This is fine but don't sell it as exclusive, because it is far from it. We paid in total around £600 for a one night stay (2 people) plus treatments, snacks, coffee, etc. I thought this was steep considering the "mass produced package holiday style" stay it was.
Lastly, it wasn't romantic really, it was more for groups of middle aged women.
