From: Spa Secrets,
An old favourite of mine, I was interested to see the new bedrooms — and I wasn't disappointed. While most are now contemporary, with all the luxurious touches you'd expect, there are, however, some quintessential English rooms full of antique furniture and roaring log fires for those that prefer something more traditional.
The spa is one of the main attractions at the hotel and I've had some of my best treatments here over the years as the therapists are so well trained. There is a wide choice of different themed breaks, including a detox weekend for those who've overdone things. Or if you want to look the part, the hairdressers on site can transform even the most unruly locks into a gorgeous style.
I indulged in a scrub and massage using the spa's very own SPC range — fantastic. My friend sampled a mother-to-be massage, which relaxed and de-stressed her. We both enjoyed the rest of the facilities including the pool, sauna and gym. The hotel also has a golf course where we spotted a few handsome men teeing off – not surprising seeing as the hotel has been the location for a host of Hollywood films including Wimbledon, Pride & Prejudice, Layer Cake and Tomorrow Never Dies.
On the menu: Massage, non-surgical lifts, skin anti-ageing, hydrotherapy, reflexology. Men, couples and mother-to-be treatments.
Signature treatment: SPC Indulgence Ritual. The body is cocooned in layers of relaxing oil and white chocolate body moisturiser. Also includes a facial and scalp treatment.
Cost: SPC Naturally Luxurious Retreat package (one night's accommodation, two treatments and meals), from £320 per person.
