Im looking for a spa resort or hotel for my 40th weekend with friends. We want somewhere really luxurious. Uk or Ireland. Somewhere that has a fab restaurant as well as great spa facilities We've been to rockcliffe hall before and loved it. Not Celtic manor or hoars cross hall as they weren't a patch on rockcliffe! Any recommendations please...

Try Whittlebury Hall. I went there with a friend last year and it was fab. Really good food and excellent service too!

Springs hydro in Leicestershire is lovely, it's part of the champneys group and in my opinion nicer than Henlow grange, one of their other ones.

Actually not sure about fab restaurant as I've only had lunch there.

If you are looking at Ireland, i would recommend aghadoe heights hotel in Killarney Kerry. Is luxury incarnate.
Fabulous spot the food is wonderful (breakfast is stunning) and the spa is lovely. 5 star luxury at its best.

Also would recommend the slieve donard in Newcastle county down Northern Ireland. 4 star but beautiful spot too.

Galgorm manor hotel in county Antrim is lush as well. I had my wedding reception there. The head chef was on the great British menu.

Gleneagles spa is amazing. The Deso restaurant Particularly good.

Penny Hill Park near Camberley is nice - great luxurious spa for sure. Haven't personally eaten in their most formal restaurant though.

The Park Hotel Kenmare in County Kerry is beautiful. The spa (SAMAS) which has featured in Conde Nast as one of Europe's best spa destinations (I think!). They have an outdoor infinity pool which looks out over a lake and across to mountains (I loved it, as you can tell) and have an excellent reputation. Kenmare is a heritage village - it might be a bit of a trek for a weekend, but worth a visit! Stobo Castle in Peebles fab too.

Calcot Manor or Gleneagles

The Cornwall Hotel.

We went for my 30th a couple of years ago and the food was amazing. I only used the pool in the spa as I was 8 weeks pregnant so couldn't have treatments but I looked lovely.

The Grove in Hertfordshire (okay, just outside of Watford) is allegedly very good.

I haven't been to Whittlebury Hall for about 5 years now but the last time I went I had a really appalling experience.

I second the Grove, pure luxury and seriously great food!!

Pennyhill Park. Amazing.
