Myself and my partner stayed at Formby Hall for one night last Monday on one of their Glow Spa packages, The whole stay was first class. The hotel oozes class from the moment you pull into the car park. Check in was done in a matter of minutes, As requested we had been allocated a quite room but this did involve a mini trek to find it but the receptionist did offer help with our bags. The room was large will powerful air con which came in handy as it was very warm. Bathroom was similarly large and spotless.
We decided to have lunch in the 19th Hole restaurant which has a large seating area outside overlooking the golf course. The lunch menu there was simple but very good quality. A perfect setting for some lights bites soaking up the sun. After lunch we decided to use the spa facilities before our treatment appointments later in the afternoon. The pool area is large and had a big steam room on one side. There is also a thermal suite but this is on the 2nd floor so you need to exit the pool area and go up some stairs. That would be my one minor niggle as it would have been nice to have everything on one level. The thermal suite has steam room, sauna and jacuzzi and was a great place to relax and feel the stresses drain away.We had booked a massage each. Both of which were very professional and very thorough. A perfect end to the Spa experience.
We had dinner in the main restaurant and the food was excellent. Be aware that the portions are huge so don’t make the mistake of ordering lots extras as you may not finish them! The waiting staff very kindly provided us with a doggy bag to take away our rather large leftovers. Breakfast is buffet style and includes everything you would want to start you off for the day.
All in all we could not have been happier with our stay. This is a first class hotel with excellent staff throughout the property. The hotel was also very good at communicating in the run up to our stay via email and phone. I would definitely recommend this hotel either for a spa break or as a base for exploring the region. Needless to say that golfers will be in heaven having the opportunity to play the Championship class course at the hotel.
Well done Formby Hall we will be back!
