Likewise if you are wishing for housekeeping to take away any dirty towel, rubbish etc. Please place them in the clear plastic bag that has been provided. Make sure it is fully sealed and place them outside your door for collection.

Hot Tub

To keep the water clean during your evening of jet setting, please take a shower before jumping in and remove any makeup, fake tan and hair extensions.

Remove the lid with both of you and place to one side.

Check the temperature, this should show on the control panel on the side of the hot tub this should be around 37 degrees.

Use the control panel to start the jets and turn on the lights. There are a few extra buttons on the control panel, do not use these as they will turn off the recommended settings of your hot tub.

Jump in and enjoy!

Once you have finished with the hot tub, remember to turn off the jets to reduce the noise and replace the lid so it keeps at temperature for when you next want to jump in.

Top Tub Tips

If you find your hot tub is too hot, leave the hot tub lid off for a while and keep an eye on the temperature on the control panel.

If you find some of the jets are not jetting to their full capacity, they may need opening. You can do this by rotating the casing of the jet into the open position.

T&C’s

  • Refrain from using the hot tub between 10.30pm and 8am
  • During pregnancy soaking in hot water can be hazardous, please limit use to 10 minute intervals
  • Do not use the hot tub immediately after exercise
  • Do not use the hot tub if you have an infectious disease
  • Do not use any electrical items within 2 meters of the hot tub
  • Guests on medication should seek advice from a medical professional prior to using the hot tub.

Bioethanol Sauna

The sauna is fuelled by a clear liquid called Bioethanol. Prior to your arrival it will be topped up ready for you use. When you look in the fire grate there is a metal sliding vent. Using the metal rod slide the vent back and this will expose the fuel.

Use the spark lighter to ignite the fuel, this may take a few goes. Be careful not to submerge the spark lighter under the liquid, it only needs to be close to it.

Once you have finished using the sauna you can slide the vent closed. This will restrict the flame and it will die down and go out. If you are staying for longer than one night then remember to close the vent between uses. Leaving it open will mean it will continue burning and use all of the fuel.

Lounge TV

Your bedroom tv has build in apps such as Netflix. You can use these apps freely and login using your own accounts or use the hotels login for Netflix which can be found on the front page of the handbook. Please remember before checking out to log out of any apps you have used your personal login for. This TV also acts as your Wi-Fi hub so it needs to be turned on to connect your devices.

Bathroom TV

You also have a bathroom tv which has Freeview channels available. These Tv’s do have a restriction on volume for the comfort of your neighbours. Please be cautious as the TV remotes are not fully waterproof.

If you TV remote is not responding it may need resetting, to do so press the “Set” button followed by the “DVD” button.

Bioethanol Fire

For a truly romantic atmosphere you can use the fuelled fire.

The fire is fuelled by a clear liquid called Bioethanol. Prior to your arrival it will be topped up ready for you use. When you look in the fire grate there is a metal sliding vent. Using the metal rod slide the vent back and this will expose the fuel. Use the spark lighter to ignite the fuel, this may take a few goes, be careful not to submerge the spark lighter under the liquid it only needs to be close to it.

Once you have finished using the fire you can slide the vent closed. This will restrict the flame and it will die down and go out. If you are staying more than one night, remember to close the vent between uses. Leaving it open will mean the fire will continue burning until it uses all of the fuel.
