Macdonald Hill Valley Hotel, Golf & Spa Review

Located amidst acres of peaceful gardens, yet conveniently close to motorway networks, Macdonald Hill Valley Hotel, Golf & Spa is the perfect location for your stay, with relaxed country club ambience and stylish, modern interiors.


From the moment you enter the special world of their spa experience, with its soothing décor and tranquil atmosphere, relaxation begins. You can unwind with a choice of wet and dry treatments. There are thermal suites with rock saunas, infra-red saunas, therapies such as salt infusion and salt mist, cold rooms, aroma steam rooms and all manner of invigorating showers.

Macdonald Hotels’ fully-trained consultants are ready to pamper you with a host of luxury beauty treatments and soothing, feel-good massages and are experts at Elemis facials.

While we were there, we indulged in the Top To Toe Ocean Radiance package. Experience the ultimate treatment, designed as an all-over body experience. A Deep Tissue Back Massage that helps to relieve tension, stress and aching muscles combined with a prescribed Power Booster Anti-Ageing facial and completed with a Sole Delight Foot Treatment that will nourish and condition your feet and nails. A sensory experience, which promises to leave you walking on cloud nine! The spa therapists are knowledgeable about the products they use on the clients, and are happy to discuss and advise which ones would be best for you by determining your skin type.

Mon-Thurs £80, Fri-Sun £85

One of the things that sets Macdonald Hotels and Resorts apart is their dedication to serving only the highest quality food, using the finest seasonal ingredients and sourcing the best produce available and it certainly pays off! For example, they source their meats from highly reputable suppliers, such as their 21-day aged cuts of beef directly from Scotbeef and continue to work closely with suppliers to ensure customers may continue to enjoy peace of mind and a consistently excellent dining experience. I would highly recommend trying out the black pudding, easily one of the most delicious I’ve tasted!

The rooms themselves are modern, relaxing and quiet- perfect for when you want to get away. There are doors in the room that open out to the gardens outside, where you can look over fields and fields of green. It is truly idyllic and we’d highly recommend it for those looking for a retreat, someone that’s interested in golf, or even as an alternative hen party!
