11 of us booked Kenwicks hen party deal which included a night in 2 lodges, a 2 hour burlesque lesson, afternoon tea, a 55 minute (or 2 x25 minute) treatment, 3 course evening meal and breakfast for £119 each. Very good value but a few annoying errors made it less than perfect. Firstly we were promised a shuttle service to the dance studio in Louth, this offer was then withdrawn a couple of days before we went! When pressed Kenwick offered to provide taxis. One taxi arrived in plenty of time but the second one was late, this, coupled with the fact that the dance teacher had been misinformed that we were doing pole dancing and so had to reorganise the studio to make it ready for burlesque, meant that we were nearly 30 minutes into our lesson time before we actually began! The lady teaching us also said that she would normally come to Kenwick to teach burlesque and would dress up accordingly in feathers etc so we feel we missed out a little as she was dressed in trackies and trainers ready to teach pole dancing.(totally not her fault and we had a fab time in the end). Afternoon tea was ok but half of the sandwiches were stale. The lodges them self were nice but a little dated and need a little TLC ( 6 people in one lodge and 5 in the other yet only 3 teabags and 4 little pots of milk in each??) our spa treatments were absolutely wonderful and non of us could fault anything about the spa!! Fantastic!! Evening meal was disappointing in that the starters and desserts were below standard for such a good hotel . Some of the ladies had a mint chocolate tart which actually tasted like minted new potatoes and the eaton mess had hardly any meringue in it! Breakfast was lovely. Freshly cooked food and decent quality. Expect to either walk for miles or drive everywhere...... Although the shuttle bus picked us up for our evening meal and took us back again. It was a good 20 minute walk to the treatment lodge and nearly half an hour walk to the main hotel. All in all we had a fab time and I would definitely go and use the spa again. less
