Lovely spa hotel but a few small negatives
Nice hotel but small country road to get to. Spa swimming pool was very nice. Room comfortable. Negatives are wifi too slow to watch Netflix etc, needs black out blinds in rooms as woken early due to brightness through curtains, also had a really posh shower enclosure but the water pressure was not good. Overall a nice pleasant stay but the small negatives did spoil the overall stay.
