Has seen better times
Spa area is on the small side and not well maintained: tiles are coming off, facilities not working. Room wasn't very clean. Too expensive for what you get

Lovely place as have been before, the negative this time was that the public areas , bar, corridors etc were very cold. A lot of people were complaining about it.

Lovely relaxing stay
The Lifehouse Spa is so relaxing. It's adults only, you get given a robe and it's normal to walk around in it! The restaurant is also lovely - make sure you book a table! We tried to book on the day, but they said they were full. But when we checked in they managed to fit us in and we had a great meal!

we had to change rooms 3 times in 3 days. The luxury room did not have a walk in shower. The second room was far too hot. We had to sleep with the window door open and two fans.j This room should not be let to guests. We were promised a refund on the cost of the room but did not get it. Also I did not get a maser card .receipt for of the booking or for and itemised bill for the spa treatmens.
