Great treatments but not a luxury spa.

We bought this as a special deal on Spaseekers.com - 2 for £180 including 5 treatments and a 2 course lunch. Thought this was very good value and as we'd been to the Colchester... read more

Our visit was a voucher purchased last year for a day spa at half price. It included the use of all facilities, lunch and a facial. On arrival were had a relaxing coffee in the lounge to fill in our lunch requirements and then shown around the spa and pool areas. The pool is a good size and best of... More

We bought this as a special deal on Spaseekers.com - 2 for £180 including 5 treatments and a 2 course lunch. Thought this was very good value and as we'd been to the Colchester spa, figured it was pretty similar. From the outside, it isn't similar at all. The building looks rather depressing when you park up and it took... More

So my friend and I booked a BOGOF offer for a de-stress day. This was my friends first visit and I had been before. When we arrived we were the first "spa day" customers having completed the medical forms etc before we arrived we were asked if we were offered a cup of tea which we accepted whilst we filled...

Brought a two for one offer - and upgraded it - not very helpful if you want to swop treatments, I did not want the manicure and wanted to swop for a pedicure and then was charged extra ( I did not think this was fair) Did not feel pampered or special, it was just an ok day. Lunch was... More

The showers were cold, old, and dirty. Some if the toilets had no toilet paper in them. The curtains on the changing cubicles were filthy. Surrounded by ugly wooden lockers. The spa bath was lovely, however both myself and others eyes stung really badly in this spa bath. If paying for a superior bliss day or any other, be warned... More

Had a full body massage brought for me here as a gift. As I had never visited before, I left in good time in case I got lost. I arrived 15 minutes early, and when I got there, the staff member queried why I was there as my treatment wasn't for 15 minutes. I explained that I hadn't wanted to... More

I went here to celebrate my aunts 40th birthday, the package we got was really good value for money, the place was lovely and peaceful and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The treatments were the best I have had. Would definitely go back and have recommended to others.

Pool area in desperate need of refurb loungers so uncomfortable no cushions hard wood paint over them need oiling hammock green material stained! Embarrassing. Choc snack... More

So we booked a massage for my partner and I, this would be our first experience, and we were not let down! Greeted by a team who were both helpful and welcoming only added to our experience. Surprisingly a lot easier to find than we both anticipated with plenty of parking availability. The Spa is set in an idyllic location,... More
