Great museum with lots to see covering the complete history of chocolate from very long ago to the present. The exhibits are spread over three floors and the displays are excellent.

I did learn some interesting facts about chocolate, hot chocolate and its history, but parts of the museum had children's toys set up to depict parts of the Chocolate story. It left me thinking, I paid money to see a 5 year olds toys??

If you expect to see choco-art displayed, you will be rather dissapointed. The museum is rather narrative than visual experience. The information provided about cocoa, chocolate history and production, etc. are interesting and educative but the visual side should be enhanced.

About 1-2 hours. It is much bigger than it looks on entry. We didn't realise at first that it is on 3 or 4 floors, plus a shop on exit. (Sorry for late response, only just seen it).
You are described as a spa hotel.Do you have a spa?I cannot see any mention on your web site. We are considering surprising our daughter for her 30th birthday and she loves spas! I think your hotel looks beautiful.Do you try to upgrade guests who are celebrating? Many Liz
