OVERPRICED
The staff were amazing , room very small & bathroom even smaller no full size bath , only 1 chair in room , plugs in wardrobe & not beside the bed , breakfast was amazing quality & service , disappointed with the spa not being within the hotel so you had to walk through the car park & up to it , so no wearing slippers & robes to get to it , also the size of the changing rooms were tiny with only 1 changing room , sauna only big enough for 2 people , pool was great & jacuzzi, but that’s because it was only my husband & another couple , wouldn’t like to be there when busy . For £650 for 2 nights with breakfast felt it was not worth the money and have stayed in a lot cheaper hotels with better rooms & facilities
