Staff were all so helpful and nothing was too much trouble, even during these tough times with the covid restrictions. We had bikes with us and they were good enough to store them for us overnight for safety. The thermal suite was amazing and such a joy to relax in after a day cycling. Definitely be back. 🥂

The restaurant and staff were lovely and the food was great. But it was very expensive compared to other restaurants who offer a 2 course for a set price, the cheapest main meal was £15. We had a voucher but would not come back as price to expensive.
