We got a great deal and the hotel is lovely. The only thing I felt missing was either a pool or jacuzzi. Food included in the deal was great.

Higgledy Piggledy layout, no structure to the layout, no jacuzzi or swimming pool. Thermal suit on ground floor, had to go all the way upstairs through reception in your gown to sit in a cold room to read and relax. Could hear other customers and staff talking loudly and laughing during the treatment. Staff un attentive; more concerned with chatting about their social lives. Ice machine in cold room not working, hardly any steam in steam room, toilets didn't flush correctly, customers left dressing gowns and towels all over the changing room, staff did not check the changing rooms regularly. Not worth the money.

Great hotel, can not complain, great value for money. Would recommend it to any of my friends or family to go. Only thing I would pick on is that there was no swimming pool within the spa facilities.

Very calming experience. Facilities were excellent although small so experience may be different if they were busy but our experience was excellent and we will be returning.

I was taken aback by how small the spa wad, not much available and they booked in too many people (consider it's quite small) for it to be relaxing. Not impressed with it at all. The massage itself was amazing, though not the full hour I paid for.

I also paid for either a bento box or a 2 course meal- however whilst there I wasn't given an option...was given the bento box (where the food wasn't even nice) . Finally was supposed to get a champagne, and didn't. Not impressed at all.

The only thing which I can say I was a little disappointed with was that they didn't have a pool. Which is ridiculous because they don't say they have one! The staff were fantastic, especially as we initially needed to change the guests on the day due to illness. The facial was amazing, including a head massage! Food was brilliant, both dinner and breakfast. I would recommend to anyone!

We booked the luxury afternoon tea, which included 60 minute treatment and afternoon tea.

The spa is quite small with limited facilities: small thermal suite, no pool. So not somewhere you could spend more than an hour (excluding treatments etc).

I booked for a 60 minute massage but staff were happy to accommodate my request to use the 60 minutes for a half hour facial and a half hour back massage. I had both with the same therapist ( Sadena). She was fantastic!! The facial was really thorough and her assessment of my skin was spot on. The back massage was AMAZING! Best i have ever had Can only imagine how relaxed I'd have felt of I'd have had the full hour. Would highly recommend Sadena.

Afternoon tea was ok. Small selection of sandwiches and scone, cake, teacake and chocolate mousse.

Unfortunately the day I intended to relax stressed us out! Was a busy production line of ladies in robes. We were to be one of them when we eventually were 'seen to' to fill out forms . We were told our afternoon tea was served in the 'restaurant' which was 2 tables in the bar area of main hotel shared by shoppers and rugby fans... and as it is a no robe area ,we felt we couldn't use the facilities until we had eaten so went over right away. To get there internally, it takes 2 lifts and a long corridor to get to. At the bar,we were told to forward a copy of our email to them and 'should have contacted them two days in advance' .??!We waited nearly 2 hours for the food to come which was stale bread and cakes. Rather inedible. We went over to enjoy the facilities but didn't have long before our treatment and sat waiting for our robes while other robed ladies were waiting for their afternoon tea in the spa.although they said they were having to take a taxi home as they had waited an hour, their bread and cakes were fresh and had used the facilities as were in robes-better than being sent over to the 'restaurant'.we chased up robes which eventually arrived 20 mins before treatment at 530! And got changed (in messy now changing rooms not clean at all)and decided we best head back up.we managed to find a tidy lounger and were soon called in. The lady I had wasn't engaging and gave no pressure to massage as was probably tired by then. We went to use the facilities and enjoyed a relax on the heated beds that became free-used towels as we hadn't seen anything cleaned. We soon had to dress though as half hour to close. We exited to find the outside door was locked and the inside one wouldn't let us back in! After knocking and pressing buzzer, we were eventually let back in but had to go through hotel to get out- great fire risk policy guys!phew time to wind down and get something to eat after all that!,

When I phoned the spa to inform them my partner was pregnant I was told they do mum to be spas to accommodate. When we arrived at the spa it wasn't the case. We were told we had booked a deep tissue massage that I hadn't as it was a surprise for my partners birthday and I wanted her to choose what treatment she had. Her massage was very unsatisfing and other treatments would of been more appropriate.

This hotel was honestly the best. I couldn't fault it' at all. The room was amazing, clean and comfortable. The food was the best. Definitely 5 star quality. The spa was my favourite place so relaxing and calming. I'm going to come back again i had such a relaxing weekend.
