A very pleasant relaxing day. It was very well organised. We were fortunate that having booked our Spa day special offer quite a way in advance our treatments were spread out during the afternoon which allowed us a leisurely morning using the facilities. The lunch which was included in our package was delicious and of a very good standard. Service... More

This was our first visit to Clarice House which I booked for my friends Birthday treat. I booked the 3 treatments which consisted of 30 min back massage, 30 min facial & either mani or pedi and a 2 course lunch. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly member of staff and taken to the restaurant area, we were... More

I first went here around 4 years ago and it was a wonderful experience. I'm sad to say that having returned about 3 times in the last 4 years on cheap deals in the hope that each bad experience was just poor luck I will never be returning again. The beauticians are rude, young and obviously couldn't care less. During... More

As soon as you stepped into Clarice House it felt as if you were on some sort of conveyor belt. We checked in, staff were polite. We were offered a seat at a table and asked if we wanted to set up a tab and to order our lunch in advance. Our treatments were at 11am, we arrived at 10.20am...the... More

My mum and I were given a spa day at Clarice House as a present and it was really enjoyable. The package we had gave us 3 treatments plus lunch. The treatments were relaxing and the staff really friendly and knowledgeable. The lunch was tasty. Drinks are extra but reasonably priced. When you are not having treatments done there is... More

This was my second visit to Colchester, and I was as happy as I was the first time I visited about 5 years ago. I took my 16 year old daughter for her first ever spa day and she loved it. Checking in was efficient and staff were friendly and approachable. Food and beverages were good and again the service... More

I have never been to a spa before but if they are all are like Clarice House I won't be going again. I expected to be greeted by happy, smiling receptionist but I was so disappointed as they just stood or sat there chatting to each other and when they eventually looked up I gave my name and they just...

I brought a superior spa package for my Mum's 50th Birthday, we arrived at the designated time (which was 40 minutes before our first treatment as instructed) and were shown to a table. Once bought a coffee we were very much left to our own devices which resulted in us having to ask questions and fish for information. This was... More

As a member of the gym I use on average the facilities 3-5 times a week. Great classes and a great pool. The fitness staff are great, they do really good classes and plenty of variety!

We visited clarice house as a group of 5, the day before my best friends wedding. This was meant to be a relaxing spa day experience but we would have been more relaxed at leisure world swimming pool surrounded by 200 children. From the moment we arrived at 9:30 you are greeted by a room of 50+ spa day guests... More
