Fantastic stay, unfortunately no spa
The hotel is outstanding, the staff are very friendly and helpful - I can't fault either. The only let down was the spa being closed for maintenance for the whole month, the hotel was very quiet so I can understand why. Unfortunately we were not informed of this before booking, nor at check in - which wasn't great as this is one of the reasons we booked the hotel.

Beautiful and relaxing
What an amazing hotel! Although our stay wasn’t a holiday, but a city break.l, It was as good if not better than any 5* luxury hotel abroad. The attentive staff, attention to detail, food, decorations and overall experience were simply ‘outstanding’. The central glass roofed courtyard, is a place to enjoy and truly relax. A harp, piano and bar. Comfortable seating and contemporary decor as well as period architecture. Something for all. Christmas truly began for us here. The spa too, is a wonderful venue. This isn’t a pretentious hotel as one might expect, given its prestigious brand. Is it good value for money? Absolutely! Would we go again? Without doubt! In conclusion……. Beautiful and relaxing, a true gem in these challenging times.
An outstanding Christmas display of the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe in the central courtyard.
