The expansive reception area, complete with roaring fire and grand wooden staircase, is undeniably impressive. Opting for a room in the original part of the hotel, which is nestled in an 18th-century manor house, provides a different experience from the more contemporary corridors and rooms found in the newer wings.


All guests enjoy complimentary access to the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, with additional charges for entry to the thermal rooms and hydrotherapy pools. Plus there's a gym and fitness classes. Indulge in exceptionally friendly service from a dedicated team, many of whom have been part of the hotel staff for decades.
