Public Opinion


What others are saying

"Absolutely love it here, they can’t do enough for you and in the good weather you could be on holiday. Stunning, amazing facilities, service and the foods to die for. Love it. We booked the relax and rejuvenate which included b&b and evening meals at the hotel. Our experience at the hotel wasn’t on the same par at all as the spa but they did have staff off due to isolating and a wedding on. "

"Visited today with three friends for the morning spa package with SabbiaMed Vitamin D treatment. We had an absolutely lovely time! Great customer service, delicious food and a great variety of spa experiences. Top value for money when compared to other deals in the area. You can tell a lot of effort and thought has gone into the design of this place, everything is done to a high standard. Thank you!"

"I've been here twice now, once as a ladies group with my mum, sister and cousin and once with my wife for our anniversary. I love everything about it. Great customer service, friendly and helpful. Excellent facilities that are kept clean and maintained well. Fabulous food. Brilliant value for money, aside from the drinks that are a little pricey but you can get free water and herbal teas throughout the day. "
