The facilities are good but we have found the sign-up process to be frustrating with only one person available to process membersips and only available every 2 weeks, and seems to be frequently booked up as everyone is given a 30 minute slot where you are forced to sit through a robotic 30 minute sign-up process - apparently in case...

The staff were so welcoming and friendly we honestly felt like they couldn't do enough for us. The food served at lunch was delicious and so filling we didn't even have room for desert but never at any point did we feel rushed. The treatments we had were brilliant as were the staff who gave them, they were all so... More

The staff are beyond rude and unhelpful. The treatments are poor standard considering what you are paying for them. Therapists that are clueless about asking basic questions when carrying out a massage I.e do you have any problematic areas, what pressure do you like etc! Toilets and shower area were filthy dirty and unmanaged. I feel it is important to... More

This was our first visit to Clarice House and we both thoroughly enjoyed our day. We were shown to the dining room to check in and to choose our lunch. We had arrived at 9:30 so had a lovely long morning before our lunch at 2pm. We spent the morning relaxing in the pools and using the sauna steam room... More

First visit. A Christmas present. I went with my friend. Difficulty parking. Ended up a long way from the Spa parked up on the grass. Reception seems always busy. Staff busy taking lengthy phone calls whilst guests wait for service. Not helped by having to go to the reception prior to each treatment to find out where to go each... More

I went with my sister and two friends as we had bought a half price spa day voucher each - it was great value and we were able to add extra treatments on the day some of which were on special offer. We all left feeling totally relaxed and pampered. The girls all work really hard and are very friendly.... More
