We stayed here for my wife's 50th birthday and I wanted someting special in view of the fact I was treated to a five star in Dubai. I thought the latter would never be beaten, but this place did it easily.
We arrived to be met by excellent reception staff, and taken to our room , I had booked room 5. I was getting anxious when we were taken to room 36, a suite , and therefore upgraded without cost to ourselves to the tune of £200 . The suite was huge , two tvs, several sofas, and desks. Huge bed and two patio doors onto our own private balcony. The bathroom was lovely and well equipped but I do have to conceded the floor did appear a tad unclean. Wooden florrs and attention to detail including the B & O televisions which swivelled away when not in use. Own cds and dvds extensiv echoice if you wanted them.
Food excellent , staff so attentive and we had no problems with language. Again without prompting they brought out petit fours with a plate beautifully decorated wishing my wife a happy birthday.
Breakfast superb, and again super attentive staff. The spa was magnificent and we had two treatments, I was making my debut and it was amazing.
Most of the hotel guests lazed by the pool all day and in the garden waited upon hand and foot by staff so eager to please.In fact it got tiring being asked continually if I wanted anything.
I have been to many places/hotels and whilst views are so subjective and one has to be careful re recommendations I cannot speak highly enough of this place, even down to the egyptian cotton sheets. Now what would a geordie boy like me think of that rubbish ? Well refreshing actually and light. Do not knock it until you have tried it.
The comments on this site leave me speechless and I cannot substantiate nor ratify any of the claims on this forum. Pricey.. ..yes, but you know that before you arrive. Value for money possibly not , but if you want to spoil a loved one splash out and indulge.
The guy here was responsible for Seaham Hall spa and I know where I would rather stay.
Make your own mind up , don't listen to the whingers re the tv reception, the light bulbs making too much noise or heavens above the chimes of the church tower. Visit ,enjoy, indulge. Would it be recommended by so many good travel guides and theTelegraph if it was so poor? Would celebrities visit if so poor?.
You decide, I know my answer....and I know what my wife thought ..........
