Thought I would post a review based on my experience as a member of the health club, so someone who visits all the time. I have been a member of at least three other gyms in Colchester and there is no match to Clarice House in terms of facilities - the gym equipment is very modern and is just about... More

Went here for my sisters hen do, Seemed unorganised on arrival, they had us down as a group of 8, when it was actually 10. Also, as the booking was made over the phone, some of the names were wrong, I emailed and corrected these, but on arrival they were still all wrong, slightly embarrassing! There is a blonde lady...

I was treated to a spa day as a birthday present. The whole day ran very smoothly and everyone knew what they were doing very well organised. We were made to feel very relaxed altho the manicure therapist (Charlotte) was lovely she did rush the treatment and the manicure was a bit messy and lack of hygiene as the cuticle... More

I brought a spa day gift voucher for my sister-in-law and we attended Clarice House on the 31st August 2014. My first impressions when pulling in was that the car park was pretty full, but we got a space fairly easily right by the day spa entrance. The reception staff were lovely and very helpful. We were initially taken through... More

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
