Firstly, the hotel itself is nice, but you get the feeling is past its former glory. While the furniture is well kept, the place does feel slightly tired, the execption being rooms which are all modern and well kept. Staff standards are very good, and everyone is helpful and polite. We ate in the resturant one night which we was happy with the food. The menu changes each night so you could happily eat without leaving the hotel. There is also 2 good bar areas, including one by the fire place which was relaxing.
The review probably would have been a high 4 if it wasnt for what was classed as a "spa". We booked the hotel originally based on the idea that as a couple's break we would enjoy the walking or activities in the morning and relax in the spa in the afternoon. The spa itself is really a standard leisure center pool with a sauna next to it. Theres nothing really relaxing about it, and kids have full access, so expect diveboming and screaming. The sauna on our visit was being operated by a 7 year old who was dumping a full bucket of water on the coals every 10 seconds so we stayed clear of that!
If you are a family with young kids, i think this would this would be a 5, however for a young couple there would probably be better suited places.
