The 2 Mothers-In-law returned this year after a great stay last year. We booked for 4 nights ....3 nights wasn't enough last year, Our second visit to Sparkling Hill didn't disappoint. It actually was just as fabulous and more. We did a few classes this time. The stretch class and also the aerobics workout in the pool with Paul. We learnt lots of great tips and I would thoroughly recommend. Paul is very experienced and he made it fun! Also learnt how to get the best benefit from the wonderful kneipp pool. We enjoyed a Fango spa treatment. Shout out to Sam for making a half hour Fango treatment sensational. Note for next spa treatments well in advance. This was the only treatment available as they book out super quickly. Would book in advance next time. Dining in Peak Fine....daily for the superb buffet breakfast - just fabulous. Delicious smoothies each day and a huge array of hot and cold dishes to chose from. Coffee available from 6.30 am each morning. Lunch and dinner ... Couldn't fault and I am fussy! Prices very good value. I think the chef does a great job. Pumpkin soup delicious and the lamb dish at dinner was superb. Comments I heard from other well travelled guests concurred that the spa was one of the best they had ever been too. The steam rooms and saunas are really second to none that I have personally experienced. Staff were friendly and attentive. Hannah, Dawn and Jessica on the front desk were great to name just a few. The housekeeping staff were also very good and Bob the cleaner actually used a torch to ensure he hadn't missed an marks on the glass ! We noted new chairs in the tea room and serenity room. Super comfortable. Fruit available all through the day in the tea room. Nice touch! The final really thoughtful touch was hopping in our car at the end of our wonderful stay and the delightful young lads that fetch your car for you had 2 bottles of water waiting in the car for us. To the CEO Jana....thank you for the continual improvements...I think you are doing a fabulous job at the helm and I see you really listen to your guests. We, the guests couldn't ask for more. Another great visit and we will be back...

My husband and I needed a break and decided to spend 3 nights at Sparkling Hill. The minute you walk in the overall atmosphere commands peace and relaxation. The magnificent views and the location are out of this world! The staff was friendly and professional and our room was clean and tidy and had a view of the lake and the mountains. The spa was amazing! Spend a lot of time there, we both had a massage and I had Fango mud massage it was incredible too! The walking trails around the property are nice too. Food was Very good and over all we where very happy with our stay. We will be back!

Well, this was my first visit but it won't be my last!!! The rooms are magnificent!!!! I can't begin to describe the atmosphere but it felt vwry high end. We were treated quite well from the valet service on although we walked in to the spa, we had massages booked, and no one said a word to us or greeted us which we found surprising. The steam rooms and pools are difficult to describe. It was like experiencing a bit of heaven!!! I could have spent much more time there and I know I will be back!!! The breakfast the next morning, which is included, was fantastic. Very tasty!!!!

As a family, we spent 2 nights here to celebrate a family wedding. I will start off by saying the hotel is beautiful and the amenities are outstanding. The reason why anyone would visit this place is because of the views and the spa, which provide a relaxing retreat. If you were to visit for only this reason, keep to yourself and have no contact with the hotel management, then it would be worth the stay. However, if you run into any issues like our group did, be prepared to be frustrated by management's lack of accountability of the problem and their inability to make even the simple things right. We had issues checking in early even though we called ahead many times asking for an early check-in. We had reserved 3 rooms under the same name, yet elderly members of our group who arrived early were told they could not get into a room until we checked-in. They sat in the lobby for an hour. A group of 9 of us had an issue at the pub-style restaurant where we waited for almost 2 hours for lunch to arrive. As an alternative, we arranged for it to be sent to our rooms. It never came. When we brought this up with management, they replied by saying that the restaurant isn't owned by them, but that they would take lunch off our bill. It's not clear how we were ever charged. All in all, a frustrating experience that took the shine off what was otherwise a wonderful wedding weekend. The hotel manager offered us a negligible discount which came across to us like they didn't care at all about our experience. Even upon checkout, the staff members who helped us never actually apologized. Which is odd since the hotel has received numerous awards for customer service including a Trip Advisor award of excellence. We do understand that mistakes can happen, yet it was management's inability to own their mistakes and make things right for us, the customer, that was our takeaway.

We only spent one night and were quite impressed with the overall setting of the resort. We were a bit astonished by the lack of detailed cleaning: 1). dust all over the back of the computer monitors in the spa, 2). lots of dust on the wall the separates the shower area and the sleeping area in our room 3). could not regulate hot water in the shower. It was extremely hot, 4) Lastly, the breakfast buffet (that everyone raves about) looked amazing but the hot food was cold. Coffee served to us was only warm. We had a couples massage, which was amazing and the amenities were very good. Because this was a surprise birthday present, I wanted to reserve supper for 9 people and they could not accommodate us for the time requested as there was another larger party, so, we drove into Vernon to Intermezzo Restaurant instead. Overall, it was a beautiful place, but, for the price that you pay to stay, there should be no room for errors. We did speak with a manager and they are going to look into all issues and offered us a discount on our next stay.
