"I had read good things in journalist reviews so was very excited to find the Midweek spa+overnight stay deal for my partner's birthday here at the Spread Eagle. For 2 people it includes the basic room, 3course dinner, full English breakfast and £50 between you towards spa treatments! I also love that it's a dog friendly hotel, but we left ours with family on this occasion! I had mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday on the off chance we might get a free drink or something, but to our delight we were upgraded to a four poster bedroom with a lovely box of chocolates on the bed and a note from the manager Sarah . With our trip off to a fabulous start, we donned the robe and slippers provided and went down to the spa. It was quiet (in the midst of Coronavirus ) and we really appreciated having the space almost to ourselves. The Jacuzzi wasn't working which hadn't been mentioned, but everything else was so nice it didn't really bother us. We really enjoyed the dinner, particularly scallop starter and Pavlov dessert. I'm assuming the venison was also delicious as my partner made short work of it! The spa treatments were very good too, I highlighted problem areas and my masseuse, Sammie, made sure to work extra on that part of my shoulders during the In Good Spirits massage. My partner had the Work it Out massage and was also very happy with it. I recommend booking 55mins for the sake of the extra £25, it's well worth it to treat yourself. The service, from booking to checkout and everything in between was perfect, personal, and friendly. Particularly from Sarah and our waiter Horace who was there to serve dinner and breakfast. It was GREAT value for money, although not cheap, so for me this is a special occasion getaway but it depends on your budget. If you're deciding between one of those £100 spa days on lastminute.com vs an overnight stay here, you won't be sorry you spent the extra. We will definitely come back another time "
"My friend, Tricia Wales, and I go for an overnight stay whenever we can afford it, through special offers that occur every now and then. We had a WONDERFUL time and the timing was perfect, just before the government want to incarcerate us 'oldies', however fit we are. Anyway, we were able to completely relax and unwind over the two days. We started with coffee and the delicious home-made biscuits and then, once settled in our beautiful room (no. 19), we headed to the Spa to relax by the pool. We forgot about Coronavirus and all the troubles of the world outside and this was aided by the absolutely lovely, old-fashioned atmosphere in the hotel where it felt like life just carried on. How beneficial this was! We had an amazing dinner, a good night, a lovely breakfast and then relaxed until I had a really relaxing massage. Then we headed home, knowing that the whole experience had prepared us for the days ahead. I hope and pray the the Spread Eagle Hotel and Spa survives the current very difficult situation that the whole world is facing because it is one of my absolutely favourite places to spend time. It is a timeless experience and the two days in which we relaxed, seemed longer than they should have been! ."
"This hotel has lots to commend it: room was pleasant and quiet, bathroom modern, food tasty, especially the desserts which were fantastic (plus a vegan menu), location good - you are in a small quaint town but can easily get into the countryside, spa is relaxing, staff are friendly. If this hotel costed £150 per night, this would be the end of my review. However, at £300 per night with dinner included, you expect something top notch and special, which this isn't particularly. The bed wasn't that comfortable, the timings for eating were rigid, the staffing relied on students who did their job fine but didn't seemt to have their heart in it, the sauna wasn't hot enough and nobody knew how to turn it up. It would have been easy to have turned this into a 5 star hotel - a little more attention to detail, more sense of actaully wanting to be of service rather than just carrying out their jobs, and a sense of wanting to fit the offer round the customer rather thant he other way around. We missed the lack of continental European staff which would have added charm and variety - nearly everyone seemed English - but we'd like to offer a special word of apprecaition for the lady who cleaned the rooms - she was delightful and seemed left on her own to do a huge job, and the blond waitress who was always smiling - what a beautiful gift her presence was. In summary - a lovely stay but significantly over-priced."
