Spa mini honeymoon dissapointing
This was a 2 night spa mini-honeymoon. No real information given at checkin so were unaware we had to book a time for dinner. Set menu was the same 2 nights in a row and quite a bland menu. Vegan options non existent and had to eat the same main two nights in a row. Also soup server without bread or rolls and they seemed confused when asked for bread to go with it. Shame as the food has always been very good but this was all a let down. The spa itself needs repair work. Jacuzzi spa each seat headrest was damaged and coming off. Spa fairly cool and not hot as expected. Spa loungers the most uncomfortable plastic loungers ever. The surroundings and grounds are stunning but many small things letting this down. Also changing rooms were left with towels and rubbish all over the floor.

Disappointed with the room which was sold to me as s superior room. The bedding wasn’t premium, no air con and a dirty fan in the bedroom. Overall appearance was needing some TLC

Good spa break
Good spa break. Nice to see a hotel designed around a spa area as opposed to the usual set up where facilities are squeezed into the space available. Being adults only helps too. Spa and facilities are very good. Could only be improved with some sun loungers outside the main area. Rooms are ok but now looking tired. No air con either. Room cleaning could have been better. Service was good. Main restaurant has a limited menu and breakfast was a bit of a let healthy options, not very warm, canteen feel. They need to improved this. I’d visit again as it’s a good hotel, spa, setting but would like to see some improvements as above.

Lovely overnight stay for my wife’s 65th birthday
Had no complaints about our stay. Staff very pleasant & helpful. Some areas & the outside of the building need a bit of a spruce up.

Spa break
It was fine. The beds are only standard size and the rooms are a little tired now. The jacuzzi was not hot, which was disappointing. The hotel is in a lovely setting in the village of Thorpe let Spoken in beautiful grounds
