Me and three girlfriends stayed here on the last Saturday in June 2014 for a spa break to celebrate my 40th birthday. We initially tried to book this via a well known spa break website but they couldn't guarantee twin rooms so I rang the hotel directly. I paid about an extra £40 total to book directly. So glad I did though as we were put in two lovely rooms next door to each other (in the main hotel building not too far from Spa). Each room had a double and single (nb: proper single not one of those folding beds)....lovely big clean rooms. Robes and slippers provided. Looking at other reviews....I do wonder if the worst rooms are given to those booking through a third party ( hotel most probably giving them a discount and thus allocating lower grade rooms).
The break we were on included £35 spa treatment each and £20 dinner....meaning bed and breakfast only cost £30pp. For the price....I thought the whole experience was superb!
The Spa was lovely.....I just loved the part of the thermal pool when you swim "outside". The decleor treatments were fab.....all four girls really enjoyed their treatments. I paid extra so that I could have a body brush up/ full body massage......it was bliss! My therapist Natasha was brilliant....friendly without bring too chatty.
To top off a lovely day.....included in our package was a £20 meal allowance. You could either use this to order off the main menu or they had a £20 3 course set menu (and you paid extra for your drinks). We opted for the £20 set menu. So glad we did.....it was really, really lovely! The king prawn linguine was simply outstanding! Service was brilliant....very efficient and friendly. A lovely self service cooked breakfast the next day to cure our hangovers.
We have all agreed that we will return....it was fab! None of us could think of a single thing to complain about!
Tips: You can use spa before/after check out. Book treatments as late in the day as possible to allow time to enjoy pool/thermal suite first. Book treatments as early as possible to get best slots. You need a credit card (and pin) at check-in....this was almost a problem as I never use anything other than debit card! Don't do what we did and assume the only bar was the one next to the restaurant - we were gutted to find a separate pub the next morning....couldn't help but wonder what we'd missed.
