// REVIEW // THE CONISTON HOTEL SKIPTON

* gifted stay*

When The Coniston Hotel first got in touch I was excited because it was a hotel I had never heard of or came across it. I thought it would be good to visit a hotel and spa where I didn't already have an opinion of. I was visiting on a blank canvas and that was exciting for me as I normally have an idea of what the hotel looks like or the best places for IG spots ( a girl has got to be prepared and make sure my outfits suit my backdrop )


THE HOTEL

The Coniston Hotel is located in Skipton which for those that don't know where it is, its just left of Harrogate so if you're stuck for things to do the day after you visit the hotel or before hand then head into Harrogate and have lunch as its such a cute little area.
Its a family run hotel which makes it even more wow when you pull up to see its size - its massive
The staff at the reception were super kind and helpful which was a lovely welcome, I find the staff who meet and greet you are your first view of the hotel and how you stay will be.




THE ROOM

We made it to our room which was a lake view room and even though it was miserable weather its always good when you have a room with a view. I love to wake up and look outside and weather permitting then also having breakfast outside too (obvs with a duvet wrapped around you because I do live in the UK.) Although it is a family run hotel you wouldn't be able to tell by the looks of the rooms as I find family hotels have their own quirky stamp on each room but this had the standards of a ...

Dropped our bags off and off we ran to the spa for our treatments - THE BEST BIT.








THE SPA

The spa is just to the left of the hotel in its own separate building which is good if you just book for a spa day as you can park right outside of the spa instead of having to go through the hotel. Its a modern building and it looks spectacular. Once we arrived west down in the spa cafe and had our spa lunch (I chose the Caesar salad and a white wine). They have a good selection of drinks as well as food and I really enjoyed mine in the sunshine as they have a little outside area or you can sit inside with that lovely spa smell ( which is my favourite smell ).

When I head through to the spa I genuinely don't know what to expect as I hadn't seen any pics so it was a nice surprise to find out they had an outdoor area with a heated pool, bar and sun lounges. And it was the perfect day to make use of these sun lounges as we were lucky with the weather.
The only thing I will say is that if you go on a weekend its going to be busy outside as thats the most popular and its only a small area so just bare that in mind. It could benefit from extending the area to around the corner as that area is bare. Which is something I find at every spa is that the outside is always the most popular and never big enough to cater for everyone wanting to get in the pool or be in the sunshine.

Inside they have a big pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and the usual things you would expect at a spa. Its a huge area indoors which is also really nice and bright as they have floor to ceiling windows.

Our treatments were up next and could not have been more excited for my full body massage - which totally done its job. I was super relaxed and de-stressed after which is one thing I love about having a treatments is, is that you feel like a new woman after and sometimes we need this after the hectic lives everyone lives these days.









THE FOOD

We had our meal booked in the Macleod's restaurant which is a 2 AA rosette restaurant. Its a cosy setting and we had a live pianist during our meal which gave it such a good atmosphere. The food we had was bloody lush and you can totally see why they have achieved 2 AA rosettes.



We had the best nights sleep and woke up to breakfast arriving in our room as you should know by now - we love to have breakfast in our robes in the comfort of our room. Because you get such a short amount of time to actually be in your room we always make the most of it - if you have never done this, then I would highly recommend you do next time and I bet you will never go down for breakfast again.

Have you visited The Coniston Hotel before? I will certainly be visiting again.
