Lovely, enjoyable, indulgent day with 3 friends. The spa facilities are fab, (although they need more showers in the day spa changing area). The grounds and gardens are an unsung delight & we wished we had allowed more time to explore. We also ended the day taking part in the Meditation class which took us to a further level of calm.

My husband and I spent a night at the spa, the room was pretty but I did notice that some of the seams of the bedding were torn or open, there also seemed to be quite a few spiders and cobwebs around in the room and around the actual spa. We got a free 25 minute massage each and it was lovely, the masseuse was very professional and the treatment room was relaxing and private. The staff seemed professional and friendly. We did have a couple of long waits for food but the quality and taste was great and due to a long wait on a cream tea we were offered a free smoothie each. Overall I would give the spa a 4 out of 5.

just what we needed, was a last minute decision, but a great choice. We relaxed the moment we got there, to the moment we left. The staff were very friendly but professional and respectful. The food was delicious and the spa facilities excellent. Just wished we had stayed for two nights. Ideal for couples and I would also like to go with my mum. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our relaxing massages and the use of the spa facilities, but some other aspects of our stay were not up to scratch. The food did not met our expectations. Stale croissants were served st breakfast. Service was very slow at lunch, and my bread was again stale. For the price, we had expected better quality. Then we were over charged by £80 at checkout...

I treated my mother-in-law and myself to a Hidden Sanctuary Experience for 2. The spa itself is bright and airy, and although there were quite a few other customers wandering around with their spa robes, there's a separate section of the spa for the Hidden Sanctuary Experience. It was lovely having our own private treatment rooms for the scrub and massage, plus our own hot pool where we enjoyed our tea and fruit between the scrub and massage. I was expecting more than just a couple of slices of orange for the fruit offering though. The treatments were spot on, although the sleep pod turned out to be a king sized bed to share, rather than individual beds/loungers as I expected, and the temperature was way too hot to comfortably nap. It would've also been better to have private shower facilities (rather than having to use the general shower/changing facilities by the reception area).

The hotel is very relaxed and all the staff are helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and we had plenty of space. If you book in the summer and you have a garden room ask for a fan as the room has no air conditioning and unless you are comfortable sleeping with the patio door open you can only open the window slightly which meant the room was very hot. My massage was fantastic and the chill area was exactly what I needed after it. The pool and steam room, sauna ect were clean and never too busy. The restaurant offered a good range of food and our 3 courses from the set menu were delicious. In the morning breakfast was good and there was plenty to choose from. I would recommend this hotel.
