Three of us went for "tea for two" which cost £55 each. The afternoon tea was lovely and the majority of staff were very attentive. However, the relaxing spa time by the pool felt like an afternoon at the local (noisy) leisure centre due to lots of children shouting and running about. This completely let down the whole experience as... More

Myself & 3 friends took advantage of a 'buy one get one free' superior day spa this week. It wasn't our first time & I'm pleased to say it was as nice a day as previous visits. It is always well organised, you are given your treatment times on arrival so you can plan your day around them. The treatments... More

We had a tea for two break for us three mums. We were welcomed and given a run down of our day. We went straight to the lovely pool and made good use of the Steam room and Sauna. Which was lovely and relaxing. Lots of chairs to sit on a bit hard though cushions would be nice. We then... More

I visited for the day with my friend. We have been to the Colchester spa many times and always has a very good experience. This time something seemed to have changed ! The girl who dealt with us on arrival was unhelpful and had no idea of good customer service. I had perviously emailed to request a earlier lunch time... More

Had a fairly good day with my friends with a cheap deal (lunch and treatments included). Treatments were rushed though, so not the best. I left my shoes in the locker on our spa day and only realised when I arrived home. The lockers have a shelf inside and 2-3 of us were sharing a locker, so squeezed our stuff... More

I recently visited the Clarice House Spa in Colchester as part of a groupon spa day with my sister. Upon arrival, we felt quite rushed and pressed to provide all of the proper paperwork and staff kept demanding payment on different occasions for things in advance e.g. robe, longer manicure etc. A better system would be to take a credit...

My mum and I went for the superior bliss day. The treatments were fantastic. Lunch was good. We did notice that some of the beds near the window in the pool area were covered in a thick layer of dust and the carpet up the spares was filthy. Overall a great relaxing day.

I have visited Clarice house on numerous occasions and always enjoy my spa day. This time though we opted for a treatment and dinner on Friday evening instead. I only wish it could be a weekly event - what a brilliant way to start the weekend! Anyone looking for a relaxing way to spend an evening I would recommend this!... More

My friend and myself regularly purchase 'buy a gift' vouchers when there is a 20% off voucher code up for grabs. It works out at around £54 each for 3 treatments and a 2 course lunch. You can't fault if for that. Lovely surroundings, friendly and attentive staff meaning an overall lovely relaxing day. Usually have a back, shoulder and... More

I'm a regular spa day visitor at Clarice House in Colchester and I will continue to return as it's such fantastic value and a lovely relaxing day. I always book the Sheer Bliss Day where you get a one hour full body massage, a one hour facial, a 30 minute manicure, a 30 minute pedicure, a 2 course lunch, towel... More
