My daughter and i visited for the day on one of our Spa day trips. No treatments available so really just a chill out day by the pool. The changing facilities are very small and cramped many of the lockers didn't work. Staff upon arrival were friendly and told us what was available. The steam room is really lacking in steam but the pool and the Jacuzzi were excellent and we enjoyed both. Very little space around the pool area but we managed to sit in a couple of chairs poolside. Why is the water fountain in the reception? Poolside you are able to hydrate regularly and feel the benefits of washing those toxins away ... Towels were clean, substantial as were the robes, the slippers well they are just a hazard!
We had a coffee mid morning but had to sit in a draughty entrance hall to drink it.
Finally we get to afternoon tea ... a substantial trek through various lounges and bars to finally arrive in a deserted area where our afternoon tea was brought to us. This is supposed to be a yes at, beautifully presented, dainty ...special, it wasnt. Two big ugly sandwiches each leaking their contents across the plate. No trimmed crusts, dainty portions or pretty presentation. Bought cakes ...nothing special and a couple of scones and jam. Disappointing and really not worth the money. The tea was hot and plentiful but the whole experience was a day out but not a particularly good one or one we shall be repeating or recommending sadly. less
