    The menu is exorbitantly priced and not proportionate to the quantity of the dish. A meal for 2 would definitely be between GBP40-50

    Just like any five star property a normal spa treatment would cost you 4-5k with a 60min session, however you can reach the hotel number to get the final cost of various treatments.
