Do you ever have those days that just seem like they are never going to end? Today I had one of those days but thank God I am home now and wrapped up in my jammies with a full belly.
Today’s post is dedicated to my lovely two night break in The Osprey Hotel and Spa. Before I start I just want to point out that this post is not sponsored or endorsed in any way by the hotel, I just had a bloomin’ brilliant time.
Our booking was an awkward one. There were four guests, one was staying only one night, the remaining were staying for two. Our single guest wasn’t quite sure if she would make it for a while which added some slight difficulty to booking, no point booking just to cancel. I fired away anyhow with the booking for three as it was definite we were staying.
Throughout the whole booking process I dealt with Helen, the reservations manager, and she was a godsend. She made the whole process much easier. She sorted us out with a triple room with an AMAZING value package. For €190 we were to get two nights B&B, three course dinner in MASH restaurant one night and two spa treatments. When it came to booking the one night stay I was asked would I like a package and the same deal was sorted out for me for one night only at a cost of €130.
The other staff in the hotel also carried out this high quality customer service, always smiling and always willing to help. Two of these stood out particularly, Niall, the waiter who managed to put up with 4 giddy women and the girl in the spa who moved some things around so my mum could get the massage that had been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Let us not forget the girl who made her first black Russian for my mum and went out of her way to ensure it was right.
The treatments were lovely, if you have never been on a spa break The Osprey is ideal for your first. I had never been to one before but I was so at ease. I got a facial and my skin has been glowing ever since, I had been worried I wouldn’t be able to relax but it took me no time to do so. We also had the Rasul Mud Treatment all together. This is a ‘self service’s treatment with no therapist and it is definitely an experience. I won’t ruin it for anyone but I would highly recommend trying it if you can. My aunty also said the Hot Stone Massage was the best she has had.
I will stop harping on about how great a time I had, but for a great value, high quality break I would definitely recommend it.
