It’s really not something you can fully understand from photos, and personally we think one of the best ways to experience all that beauty is to dine in the alfresco part of the restaurant on a summer evening.
Before now, everything was a buffet dinner which is nice for choice, but doesn’t necessarily feel very special. The hotel has now launched a separate restaurant area and, as expected, it’s beautiful. There’s an a la carte menu, the staff are really good at making recommendations which makes it feel really personal, and it’s definitely a dining experience worth trying.
This isn’t new, but it needs reiterating. It’s perfect for groups and it’s on site so if you’re looking to combine the spa with a night out but don’t want to pay for taxis etc, it’s perfect. They sometimes do themed evenings so keep an eye out for those, and it’s open on Fridays and Saturdays as well as Bank Holidays.
They have really gone to town on this – there are big beds and blankets so you can close yourself off and fall asleep in peace. There are massive chunky sofas, little beds that come out of the walls and lots of different segments with different vibes depending on what you want… and it’s massive. Last year we went and had a treatment and a nap, but other people were in a separate area having a chat, so everyone could enjoy it as they wanted to without disturbing other people.
The biggest thing that made a difference when we stayed this time was our upgrade to the Presidential Suite. We visited as a group and sat in the living room having drinks and Prosecco as we got ready making it really special to spend time together. Another time we were upgraded to a regular suite which also had a separate living room, which is definitely worth looking at it if you’re going with a few friends or on a hen party. Put a little extra money aside as it makes a huge difference to the whole experience.
