We booked a Wellness package, in the middle of October, on this North Atlantic island. We expected the weather would keep us in, thus we especially wanted a hotel with enough interest indoors to keep us comfy for a weekend getaway. This is the perfect spot. The package included breakfast both days, dinner on our second night, full free use of the sauna and steambath area, a free session in the sunbed and a 40 minute massage by a trained masseuse. We had the use of a bathrobe and slippers as well. In the hotel is free internet, a bar, comfy sitting areas, a computer area, a rooftop sun deck, and a terrace with sea view. And this place delivers on all counts. They gave us a nice wellness gift too.
We think there has been a well thought out refit in the recent past. No clue when, but it is tasteful and attractive. High end without pretension, comfy and sophisticated at the same time, we were really surprised that even low season, everything was clean, ordered, the food delicious, the bread baked on site and to die for, the staff well trained, courteous and well groomed. They earn their stars.
Just a couple of things:
The bed pillows are needing a rethink. and there are no extra pillows nor blankets that we could find...
The bath slippers were really uncomfortable: I would gladly pay a bit for nicer ones- that didn't cut between the toes and were not dangerously slippery when wet.
The footbath in the sauna was cold.
Our harshest complaint is how they scheduled our massages- back to back Sunday morning at 9 am. With breakfast ending at 1030 and check out by 1100, having 80 minutes blocked out for massages made the morning a bit more rushed, busy and certainly earlier than we would have planned. We don't have the solution but it was annoying.
So, as you see there was not much to complain about. We are looking forward to using other Westcord hotels if this is the common standard.
