Written by our customers, so you know what to expect at each and every venue.
Really nice, calm, relaxed atmosphere. Great treatment, lovely welcome, and great spa facilities too. We got the package with afternoon tea and dinner and the hotel was very accommodating with vegan options for myself :) Would definitely come back again!
Really relaxing and lovely visit! Highly recommended!
Our two night spa break was a really good value for money. We were perhaps lucky in that it was a quiet time of the year so we more or less had the facilities to ourselves including the large pool overlooking the lake. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, particularly the barman, the waiter who served our afternoon tea and the receptionists. Our evening meal was delicious, breakfasts were great (lots of choice). All this and I had the best massage and facial ever- a truly relaxing break
Excellent !!
Great hotel with friendly and helpful staff! Would definitely recommend and will be returning for another visit in the near future!
