We have just returned from a trip to l'Hermitage near Orient which we both greatly enjoyed. As a hotel, the place is great - relaxing, restful and quiet. My only real reservation is that if you go expecting it to be a true spa, like Ragdale Hall etc that's not what you will find. Our room in the block next to the small indoor pool was great, very modern, comfy bed, huge bathroom with walk in shower and spa bath. On site there are indoor and outdoor pools, a sauna and steam room ( though you need to ask for these to be switched on) and tennis courts. There is also a small treatment room where you can book a massage etc, but it the spa element is very low key. If you are looking for a restful location, good walking, and time away from hustle and bustle of daily life then this is the place for you. If you want choice in eating establishments, bars etc then you probably need to look elsewhere. We walked into Orient (the road is quiet and pretty safe) for dinner at Mandala a couple of times, but for anything else you would need to drive. Pros are the quality of the rooms, the peaceful location and gorgeous countryside, great service, good breakfast, excellent walking, and relaxed dining al fresco. Cons include the fact that wifi didn't really reach the spa rooms ( intermittent at best - go to the main building), somewhat limited menu in terms of veg accompaniments, and isolation. That said though we really liked the place and the area is just gorgeous. Orient is only 20-30 mins stroll away and you get great views over the village. Don't be afraid of strolling in the evening - we dined there twice and as long as you are back before it gets too dark it's not too bad a walk. Little traffic and what there is goes slowly.
