I went here yesterday with my sisters and mum as part of my 30th birthday celebrations. The pool and spa facilities are really nice, but it doesn't have much else going for it. Our treatments were rushed and the express pedicure was the worst I have ever had, my toes weren't even painted properly. Our food was average and my... More

Went on a Bliss day but felt I was on a conveyor belt. No flexibility in treatments. My friend wanted pedicure rather than manicure but this was not possible. Very rushed. Not told to drink water after treatments. Lunch was cold and had to be returned. Not given a proper tour of where things were. Double locker too small. Carpets... More

Clarice House is set in beautiful surroundings just outside Colchester. I went with my two daughters to the day spa on 1st August. My first treatment was a massage which was ok but have had better, the second was a facial and the therapist spent quite a bit of time filling in a card to suggest products, rather than doing...

The spa itself is beautiful and relaxing, pool is clean and temperatures are lovely, lots of variety to relax you. We had a massage and facial which were both lovely professional staff, the manicure and pedicure were a little bit short and sweet but must say, as a person who suffers from anxiety, every member of staff put me right...

Great place to go on a spa day - nice and relaxing lots of beds to chill out on in between treatments and a beatiful garden to sit out in when the weather is nice. We had a package which included treatments and lunch - the treatments were brilliant lovely girls doing them, and the lunch was great too -... More

Visited the salon for a BIG birthday. Although my cousin and our Mums enjoyed our time together the treatment we received was unprofessional and nothing but rushed! Full treatment times were not given, and on one occasion my Mum was put in an incorrect position for a back massage, which I find disgraceful! Many disappointments throughout the day. Dishonesty of... More

Just spent a 2 for 1 day here with my daughter. So relaxing, very good back massage and excellent facial. Lunch was very nice and the service was excellent. Found all staff to be very professional and friendly. The pools were warm and inviting. Sunbathed outside in the lovely grounds. Finally our manicure and pedicure were very nicely done by... More

Having bought the two for one premium spa day ( 1 hour massage, 1 hour facial, and 30 minute pedicure and nails) I thought this was good value. However the treatments lasted 40 minutes each for facial and massage and only 15 minutes each for pedi and mani. The mani also bubbled terribly and was really just a polish. My... More
