I was invited along to Clarice House by my friend who had a voucher for a spa day for two. We arrived and were shown round by a friendly member of staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the hydrotherapy pool and jacuzzi! We had our two course lunch which was exquisite! Tasty food that was very well cooked and... More

Another fantastic spa day at Clarice House. This time I took my Mum and Dad and they both loved it. We had the Sheer Bliss Spa day (4 treatments, 2 of which are 1 hour, 2 course lunch, robe & towel hire, flip flops to keep and use of facilities) and also upgraded our manicure to gel and I also...

The overall facilities and grounds are very impressive. Unfortunately, the customer service is consistently disappointing. We have been members for seven months and have now cancelled our membership. The staff often treated us like we were an inconvenience and not worth their time. The final straw for us was when booking a bridal party spa treatment. The spa staff were... More

Overall a good day, but a few little niggles put it off being a perfectly relaxed day as advertised/expected - the service on arrival felt like a conveyor belt, not at all the personal touch! Ushered through to large room with lots of tables of people, all doing form filling and towel collecting. There were not enough staff for it... More

I bought gift vouchers as a Mother's Day gift, however my mum was very ill. After she had recovered from heart surgery I tried to book only to find the vouchers were two months out of date. Despite the circumstances they would not honour the vouchers. So my poor mum did not get her spa and I am £150 worse... More

Been a member for nearly a year now and love the gym facilities, all very modern machines, can't fault this side of things at all. But my goodness is the pool area well overdue for a serious clean...there's black mould all round the (previously) white plastic 'sides' to the pool area, jacuzzi & hydrotherapy pool. This really isn't acceptable based... More

I visited alone for a spa day with lunch and massage included, and was made to feel very welcome by all of the staff, who were courteous and friendly. This was my first visit, which I had high hopes for having various friends who had all visited and said how lovely it was. The house is very pretty and charming... More

A last minute decision to have a spa day rather than our usual get together shopping day. Wow can't believe we haven't thought of doing this before - this will now become a regular for us. Kinder to feet and purse. We booked a superior package which included 3 treatments a 2 course lunch and full use of facilities with... More
