Disappointing on the whole. Spa changing rooms had changed to the men's for the day. Not shown around at all. Limited and uncomfortable loungers around the pool. Great massage however. Taken to relaxation room afterwards - arrived first then 2 friends and birthday girl last - by that time the 5 beds were taken and she was just left standing...

On arrival the hotel looked quite impressive, right near the waterfront, close to all the amenities, but sadly we were disappointed with our room. We were charged £198 per night for a mini suite with balcony (apparently this was a discounted price). But on entering the room we found it no better than a Trave Lodge room with a balcony...

Warm and welcoming as soon as we arrived. Our room was so big & clean and couldn't of asked for a nicer room. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, did not want to get out of it! The jacuzzi area, very relaxing. And the breakfast was very nice. Will definitely be returning soon....

My partner booked this for a little getaway for my 30th. Was really looking forward to 5* treatment but I'm not sure how this is a 5* establishment. Yes it's lovely but a bit overpriced and not worth the hype. The spa was always packed and not as relaxing as I hoped as there was just way too many people...
