                                1- I did mention that i shall be arriving at 15:00. I actually arrived later than this time and had to wait 45 minutes to have my room ready. 2- I did book a room with a courtyard view and was given a room with the view of the road (The reason they gave me this room is that this view is more quiet than the courtyard) 3- When i checked in to my room the wall sockets were all broken, do not know how that is possible for a new 5 star hotel. 4- I did order breakfast and was sent expired yogurt which is again totally unacceptable. 5- Another room service encounter was when i ordered 2 Caesar salads for my guest and when the food arrived there was just lettuce and no dressing at all. 6- I did make a few phone calls locally and 1 international call and i was charged around 150 Sterling pounds for that which is a total rip off.

                                Everything was amazing, the room the services and the accommodations, Very luxurious and worth the money.

                                The rooms, staff and amenities were, in my opinion, second to none.

                                Breakfst was, to say the least, not up to standard. The staff in the breakfast room should concentrate more on showing you what is available if you have not been there before and the buffet bacon, scrambled eggs and black pudding were not at all of the quality expected for the hotel.

                                Fabulous hotel with excellent service, accommodation was stunning, professional and helpful staff - will certainly return.

                                The environment of the spa is wonderful, but the management is lacking, there is allot taken for granted, its a very large spa and there is a general assumption that guests will know their way around, also its unusual for any spa to assume the shoe size of their guests ( spa slippers are placed in each changing closet .. mine were tiny and I couldn't find anyone to change them - so I stayed barefoot). I'm sure that ESPA are still finding their feet ... also there is no facility for a couples massage despite us being booked for the service, surprisingly, it took me 4 days to make the spa reservation, numerous emails and leaving voicemails. The hair salon was excellent, I had a great blow out and Sarah was super efficient with my enquiries.

                                Food and drinks very expensive ie £5 for a fruit juice. Also the food was not great

                                9.2

                                The staff at this hotel work very hard, are friendly, efficient, polite, helpful and visible. The spa pool,jacuzzi, hot beds and especially the sauna are first class if a bit gloomy being so far underground.

                                I thought the quality of the breakfast, especially the hot food, not high enough for the cost. Also the tables were too close together and seats too low and uncomfortable - not appropriate for a buffet. Also the lighting in the rooms is confusing and the bathroom too fussily set out. Better to have a proper door on it too. Would have preferred an old fashioned bath, old fashioned kettle, and less technically advanced TV!
