Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seeking-peace-and-quiet Very nice quiet break
On arrival you realise how 'in the country' the hotel is.
The room my wife and myself were given was an upgrade after we were told no king size double was left (the type we'd requested).
We were given an executive twin where the beds were zipped together, housekeeping dealt with the bed swiftly within 5 mins of arrival. The bed was really nice and comfortable, by far the best hotel bed we have ever stayed in. The room had a nice marble style bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle providing a torrential water flow from the taps!
Overlooking the golf course, I'm not sure we saw more than 2-3 people out of window over the course of our 5 day stay.
We had short massages booked, there was a need to plan in advance a couple of days as the spa appears popular with non-residents and those on the hen/spa break type holidays. Both of us enjoyed the spa and the staff were attentive coming up to us later in the holiday to see how we were finding the break.
There were 2-3 observations that I made during the break that would have made the whole thing perfect, we did enjoy our time away!
We had food one night in the bar (breakfast not booked so can't comment) again the staff are excellent but I'd say the food quality isn't quite to the same standard - gnocchi was too salty - said my wife and I thought the burger could have been more tasty/succulent.
We had to evacuate the pool after a child was sick, however the pool area was quite cold causing us to be thankful of getting dry once out of the jacuzzi.
The smallest thing that became more noticeable than it should really were the 2 lifts that were in the central lobby area, very creaky and most times the call button needed pressing twice to open the door/get the lift to register a call.
We did enjoy our break despite the above and will likely book again the next time we want a quiet break away from it all.

Our second time at the Hotel, but this time for longer, Great time, with spa treatments and use of the Swimming pool. Our 6 year old just loved being able to go down to the Swimming pool and have some fun. Can't wait to go back.

This well appointed spa hotel serves value for money. Breakfast was a real treat with very attentive staff.
