Pleasant Stay

Nerose, Tynemouth, United Kingdom
My wife and I stayed here on Sunday night, and had a very enjoyable stay. My wife got it as a deal from her work, which included, bed, breakfast and evening meal, use of the spa facilities, and a one hour treatment each. We both had a lovely relaxing stay, which was just what we wanted. The treatments we had were very nice, and the young lady who gave us both our treatments was very good at her job, and a lovely person to talk to during out treatments. This was all topped off with a vey tasty 3 course evening meal. Although we got a good deal on what we got, we couldn't fault the stay we had, and all the staff were extremely no sand friendly.

Relaxing, great value on "the Friday feeling" break

We booked the Friday feeling offer which was dinner bed and breakfast with a bottle of prosseco and chocolates in the room. I asked for the old original part of the hotel which we got and the room was huge. Staff welcoming and all the hotel was nicely decorated as it was the run up to Christmas. We used the leisure facilities which was lovely and felt so relaxed on our return to the biggest bed!!! We will be returning as we had such a good time, we will be keeping an eye open for similar offers.

Relaxing break

rach W, Darlington, England, United Kingdom
2 friends that decided to 'get away from it all' for the night. It's a perfect place to do just that with stunning surroundings. Gorgeous hotel with a lovely room and super friendly staff. I always ask for a joke on my pillow when I book anywhere online and they didn't disappoint, a few jokes had been printed out and were sat in an envelope for me when I checked into my room! Room was also clean and ready half an hour before we were supposed to check in as we arrived early. We were excited to use the spa but unfortunately it wasn't brilliant. Good points were that you can drink prosecco by the pool... always a good point! But the jacuzzi wasn't warm and also there were too many children. I've never understood why spa hotels open their facilities to local families, on lots of occasions have stayed places where I feel more like I'm in a local leisure centre than a relaxing spa which is our main reason for the break, so these couple of things were disappointing as other than the sauna and steam room there was nothing else to enjoy and we had to leave due to the noise. I can't comment on the library restaurant as we just wanted an informal meal (again due to just wanted a chilled spa break) so we ate in the keepers lodge which is on site and the food was nice, proved reasonable and staff nice. Breakfast was very nice with outstanding service. As for coming back.... I would be back in a flash if spa was improved but this experience would make me think twice which is such a shame as everything else especially such lovely staff were spot on.

Relaxing break

This is one of the most relaxing breaks we have experienced. From our arrival to departure we were more than looked after by the lovely staff. I can honestly say every member of the staff team were genuinely helpful. The food was outstanding! So much so we ate here two nights. The breakfast was delicious. The spa facilities were relaxing and our room had the most comfortable bed. We will definitely be returning with our envious friends. Thank you.

Wonderful wonderful stay

Sarah B,
Stayed here from the 12th-14th March for a couple of days for my boyfriends birthday. Absolutely exceptional, I could not fault anything about it apart from a small noise complaint that was addressed on our last night. From check in to check out it has been a wonderful stay. Special mention to Carter who served us in the conservatory, James on breakfast and Carol in leisure club - such friendly and lovely staff. Would not hesitate to come back at all.
