                Evening meal Breakfast Bar Spa facilities Helpful staff - car parked etc room Actually everything

                Nothing

              • Couple
                8.2

                Spa facilities were excellent, very relaxing. Good treatments avaliable. Nice location. Very modern hotel. Room was nice looking over the lake (room 51)

                Unclear when booked the break - was advised by someone at the hotel that if I paid extra £15 each we could come for early check in 11am, instead of late check in 15:00pm. Was under impression we could get into our room at this time, then on arrival was told that we could only use the facilities and would not get into the room until 15:00pm. I booked 2 treatments that staff booked for wrong day, therefore we had to be squeezed in on day I origionally wanted and ended up having to have shorter length treatments. Heating in our room wasnt working, asked reception staff on several occasions to fix it for us as its winter (December 2012) and was very cold. They provided us with a heater which was useless, meaning during the night was very cold. We were promised this would be rectified by night staff but this did not happen.

                The design, ambiance, attention to detail, peacefulness.

                The reception area seemed a bit understaffed, short wait for check in, much longer wait for check out.

                The food was really good .

                Perverse Pakistani group of men looking at my girlfriend in the spa . Shower control panel didn't work and had to turn it on by the sink control panel . Hotel cleaning staff burst into our room at 8.30 am with no warning and I was exposed on top of the bed , she swore and left the room quickly . One of the nights we was kept awake until 4 am due to adults running up and hall way shouting and laughing and was a very rowdy evening , not to be expected been a spa relaxing adult only hotel .

                Very calming atmosphere

                2 points that need improvement. The room had a night light which could not be turned off. This resulted in the room being illuminated all night with a green light. The bathroom ventilation system had failed and not been fixed.

                service excellent

                hotel design too stark for our tastes

                9.2

                The hotel was very modern, clean and friendly. The food very good albe it a little expensive. But luxury now and again if ok by us.

                Slightly remote from other restaurants so they had the monopoly on the evening meal unless someone was willing to drive.

                9.2

                Comfort and relaxation after a busy day

                Restaurant was rather noisy and a rather cold atmosphere

                10.0

                Swedish - minimal look and feel - great facilities - great and large gardens to walk and cycle - good food - good staff and low cost in relation to quality

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Really love the hotel and spa and facilities. Relaxed atmosphere.

                We have stayed at the Lifehouse twice now and we have requested breakfast to our room on both occasions and both occasions it has not arrived. The first time we did not do anything about it but the second time we complained and they sent a hurried tray to the room minus tea and minus any bread/toast to go with the meat selection. Just to say a wonderful hotel just don't ask for breakfast to your room. And yes we will return.
