One night accommodation for myself and 2 friends to chill and relax. Dermot was on hand immediately and very welcoming with plenty of information for us. Apartment was amazing very modern, spotlessly clean, everything one would need for the perfect stay and as if that isn't enough the views from the apartment were magnificent. Would have loved to stay longer.... More

Booked a 'Girls on Tour' weekend package which included 2 nights self catering accommodation and a treatment for £75 each. The apartments were fantastic with everything you could possibly want contained in them. Dermot the owner could not have done enough for us and very kindly let us stay until 3.30pm, even though check out should have been 10am. We... More

Myself and my friend are still on cloud 9 after our rub a dub dub two in a tub experience today. Friendly welcoming staff, we felt relaxed as soon as we arrived. We had the double bath room which is great for having a chat while enjoying the steam room and bath. We chose Bob Marley to listen to while... More

The owner is a money grabbing so and so. Overcharging when he was already making a fortune from the group of us staying there. Charging for extra people when some hadn't even turned up. Total joke, the people who had treatments did enjoy them and we would have went back in a heartbeat if he hadn't taken the piss.

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!! Folks where should I start!! Booked for 9 people on a package which includes a treatment in the price, pleaded with me on the run up to the event to allow another 2 people to stay for one night sleeping on the sofa (alarm bells ringing, but local people so gave in reluctantly). Sat down and agreed the price... More

I visited Soak at the weekend for the first time. I will definitely go there again. The seaweed bath was a wonderful experience and afterwards I felt really relaxed. The bath experience combined with a great cup of tea in the log fire lit tea-rooms and the friendly chat with the helpful owners means that I am sure I will... More

I visited yesterday with my two sisters and my mum for a girls day out to celebrate a birthday and chose soak for something a wee bit different. Found the owner very welcoming and we really loved the huge log fire. Firstly we were asked to pick music for our room from a menu however I imagine you could also... More

We were booked in for a couples treatment of a bath and massage each. We also spent two nights in the connected self catering apartments which were lovely. The staff are very accommodating and welcoming, and do a great job of making you feel comfortable. Being in a bath of seaweed takes a while to get used to, but it's... More
