This was our second stag and overall the offering is amazing considering the quality of the food, spa and surroundings. For the price the only real let down is the rooms which are quite dated and not the cleanest or best maintained. For example the carpets in our room had quite a few stains, the iPod docking station would only fit an iPhone from a decade ago and the tv and facilities e.g hairdryer, kettle etc are very old. Again for the price and 4 star rating would also expect better in room tea/coffee facilities, perhaps a key card instead of carrying round a ridiculously large key chain all weekend and a much higher standard of decoration and cleanliness. We ate in both restaurants and the food was excellent, the only criticism was that there was no music in the bistro and the atmosphere was a little uncomfortable as it was deadly quiet, the fine dining meal in the main room was outstanding. The spa is great and the infinity hot tub is a real bonus. The spa could do with a good deep clean as tiles were missing in a number of areas and the grout was quite dirty throughout. It also needs to be more staffed as after a short while there are towels and empty drinks everywhere. There was a wedding on at the time we stayed and having a dog friendly room near to the function room this did impact quite a lot on our day as guests were right outside our patio and we couldn’t use it privately, there was also high footfall outside the corridor which wasn’t ideal, especially with a dog who was quite disturbed by the noise, it did not however cause us any evening disruption and we slept fine. I also don’t really understand the high charge to bring a dog when you appear to be punished by getting a worse room with a stained carpet, for the price you get a dog bed (almost every dog owner would bring there own) and a few biscuits and poo bags, a nice novelty but not worth £15 a night. Also well behaved dogs should be allowed in the hallway lounge all night, don’t understand why not as there is still the Bar and saloon areas for non dog lovers and food is not served. Nobody wants to leave there dog alone in a hotel so the options are to stay in with them as there isn’t much within walking distance.

The food and service are amazing. The 30 minute massages we booked only lasted twenty minutes. Not sure that’s good value for money. Our room 161 seems to be the hottest room on planet earth and I couldn’t figure out why? We have loved our stay and will be back. The waitresses and bar staff are very good.

Without the greatest room I have ever stayed. The stay could not have been better and I couldn’t recommend the hotel, it’s facilities and staff more. Thank you.

Visited for a weekend Spa break with dinner both nights (for some reason my review is tied to a dinner reservation and not my whole booking). Spa is outstanding - one of the best we've been to. Restaurant is nice, but the menu didn't change between nights with no varying special options, which was disappointing given that the two night package is one they offer. We heard other guests complaining about this too and were told that if you're staying for 3 nights or more that you can then speak to the chef and something different will be made up for you - basically, if you're not staying for more than 3 nights you're not important. The final night I spent in the bathroom vomiting - impossible to pinpoint on what exactly but having eaten the mussels my guess is that this was the cause given how easy it is for one bad mussel to have an impact. We voiced this the following day (again, I know that mussels are risky so we weren't suggesting anything more than a mistake) but the response to my wife (I was again in the bathroom at the point the manager spoke with us) was to explain that others had eaten the mussels and were fine, therefore there was no problem. We were not offered any form of reduced rate or vouchers for return (or frankly, anything!) for this which I think is very poor form for a place that markets itself as high-end. Poor experience for an expensive weekend.
