I recently stayed here as part of a package and I was really looking forward to it as it had been booked some time in advance.
Upon arrival to the hotel, you feel that you are in a nice boutique environment, with a lovely little foyer and attentive front desk. My room was located in a quiet, scenic part of the hotel for which I was grateful for and it came equipped with some fresh apples, bottled water and chocolates. Spacious too.
But there were some issues, hence not the 4 or 5 stars I would have wanted to give it. The bathroom had some plumbing problems, the vents in the bedroom were loud during the night (I didn't get the restful night we were hoping for) and when making coffee in the morning, I discovered a dirty machine with another guest's leftover coffee in it. Not sure how old that was, but a good rinse in hot water saved the day. These are minor things which I am sure can be addressed, but when you are booking in for that special, relaxing night - they kind of take away the sparkle of it and leave one pretty subdued and deflated when at the check out desk (where I mentioned these problems.)
The Spa's overall appearance is really nice, and the communal area feels very inviting. I booked the Spa Magnolia Signature to get a taste of some of their treatments but I did feel the whole experience was very impersonal and rushed, which was a shame.
