8/10 Very good

Nice stayed but didn’t live up to my expectations
I was really looking forward to our stay at The Retreat, as it had just picked up some impressive award for the best hotel in Britain or similar. The greeting from the reception team on arrival was excellent, we were seated on nice sofas and given a glass of wine. Then we were shown to our room which was a nice size but a little limited in furniture, but ok. There are pantries near the rooms where you can help yourself to drinks and snacks etc which is a really nice touch. We booked dinner in the hotel, there was a big party in that night as well so the service was terribly slow and the food ok, but not too special. In the morning we used the outdoor swimming pool and spa facilities, I had a facial as well which was all nice, I especially liked the pool. There was the odd touch missing ie no slippers in the rooms to go to the spa with. Breakfast was continental and if you wanted anything else it was an extra charge which was a bit strange, but actually ok and there was plenty of choice. In summary we had a nice time, some bits were really good, but it didn’t live up to what I was expecting have read about the hotel.

Visiting for Christmas
We really enjoyed our week over Christmas. The bed is one of the most comfortable I have experienced in an hotel. The staff are really committed and it shows. Great amenities, excellent food and wine. One small area for improvement please have some good beer options in the bar.

Weekend break
Friendly staff, good location, rooms comfortable but not generous in size. Lacks attention to detail - i.e. needed long mirror in room, shower without hand attachment, tables in lounge and restaurant required cleaning. Food ok. Breakfast service very slow. Room for improvement but, nevertheless, potentially very good.Family and dog-friendly.
