Took my boyfriend on a surprise overnight trip to Galena for a milestone birthday. One of his surprises was a trip to this day spa for his first ever massage. He looked reluctant going in but relaxed and in total awe leaving after his session. We will be back! And he can't stop talking about his experience.

Just had an AMAZING hot stone couples massage at the Galena Day Spa. We both agree, this was the best massage we've ever had. Champagne and chocolates at the conclusion of the massage was a nice treat (though the 'relaxation room' leaves a little to be desired). Thanks Mary and Jerry for a relaxing afternoon! We can't wait to come... More

I was recently married at the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel and utilized the Galena Day Spa for many services for myself and my bridal party/guests. We started our morning with massages, facials, and pedicures done in the gorgeous, well decorated spa. We also had our hair and make-up done up in our hotel suite in the afternoon. The scheduling of... More

We were staying at the Irish Cottage hotel and booked services at the in house spa. We had three different services with Mary (facial) Jerry (hot stone massage) and Lauralee (deep tissue) which were all fabulous! These therapists were professional and extremely good at their specialities. However, once the massages were done and we were having our champagne and chocolates,... More

I needed my hair and makeup done on my wedding day, but I was worried about being charged an outrageous fee to do my hair because it was for a "wedding." When I booked, I explained that I had a pixie cut (my hair is 2 inches long) and they gave me a really reasonable rate. Amanda did my hair... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at the Irish Cottage and decided to try out the Candlelight Couples Massage. What a wonderful hour! Both our massage therapists were very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our time there. We enjoyed the chocolates afterwards....what a nice touch! We plan... More

We visited the spa during our vacation. The receptionist left a lot to be desired. He greeted us, told us that there was water and snacks and then ignored us. The music that he was listening to was not the same or compatible with the music the spa was playing. I was wondering what we had gotten ourselves into .... More

My 2 sisters and I were on a girls getaway weekend and the whole idea was to relax to the absolute max. Sherry, the gal who took our reservations was extremely nice on the phone and very accommodating to get all three of us in on such short notice. We booked 3 pedicures, 2 60 minute massages with 45 minute... More

This is a so- so place. It's not fancy by any means. My massage was good but I've had much better. Very nice ladies that work there. I received about a 50 min. Massage but paid for 60 min. Probably would not go back for price we paid. Friend had same thing and is giving same review.

I booked a prenatal massage here and a 60 minute deep tissue massage. My massage - 1) the prenatal pillow was horrible, they need to get the ones where you hug them 2) I told her LOWER BACK PLEASE, and I feel like all I got was a massage on my arms and legs the whole time. Was it relaxing... More
