Enjoyed a lovely visit to the Spa today with a friend we enjoyed a Pamper Me Please package. We both enjoyed the pampering we received from our therapists. I can highly recommend a visit to this tranquil place. The beds in the salon were not only comfortable but were also heated. Very relaxing a real treat.

Our villas were located in the East Village, which was lovely and quiet. The villas were quite spacious and contained everything we needed for a weekend away. We... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and I found the entire experience to be relaxing and hassle free. The complex gives you a sense of space and freedom as everything is spaced out.

We booked the Crowne Plaza for a weekend away to celebrate our wedding anniversary and could not be happier with the service, facilities, and dining. A real highlight was the tasting paddle at the in-house brewery and a late night dessert & wine visit to Redsalt. We will definitely visit again.

Attended a school formal here. The venue was excellent with plenty of room for over 800 people. The acoustics were really good as it wasn't extremely noisy. The meal was really nice although it was a bit small. Drinks were a bit expensive also.
