Loved every minute at the Hydro. There are walks, Aqua Aerobics, relaxation time and I even attended a self defense class. All this plus our fabulous treatments made our stay superb. Juices and tea on offer all day long, and 3 vegetarian meals. Also a soup mid afternoon. A

Our stay at the Hydro was peaceful and restful. Their service is of a very high standard filled with smiles. Their stress relief programs (diet, activities and massages) are design to leave you stress free and ready to tackle the world. Their immaculate gardens provide peace

We deeply regret the disappointment you express. Your longstanding patronage of The Hydro is very important to us and we always want you to experience The Hydro at its best. Right now, after all the extensive renovations and the many new facilities, you should be feeling as enthusiastic as the majority of our guests.Our shift to a full salad buffet has won many converts to vegetarianism. We recently created an organic vegetable garden and a completely natural eco pool which is our new pride and joy. Despite the unvarying reputation for excellence of our therapists, they are subject to human fallibility. If any guest ever experiences less than their expectation of us, we gladly invite them to return. Thank you for replying to our mail and hope to welcome you back soon.

The basic rooms that I saw recently don't tend to have a patio. Other than that, room still looks very comfortable and the environment is so wonderful, you don't tend to spend that much time in your room anyway

Any Reviews in December ?
Do you still serve fabulous lunches for visitors.
"Garden view, west facing are perfect for watching the sun-set."
"I think the more expensive rooms will be larger but my room for a single was fine"
"I would recommend the new rooms as the older ones are quite noisy with the doors."
"Suite is our personal preference but all rooms look onto nature"
"My room was budget. Nothing wrong with it at all. Air con to keep warm and hot blanket."
