Just about 3/5. This was my second trip their and a bit of a let down in comparison. Breakfast a real let down with semi warm Buffet selection and a change in many meaning far less choice than previously. Now they cannot make you an omlette and no waffles, pancakes or hash browns. You can still request a fried egg... More

Our overnight stay included a meal in the restaurant, which was fantastic. Served by Mathew and Florin, we really enjoyed our meals, could not commend the service enough. We also made the most of the facilities and stunning gardens before heading to our room. Breakfast was the only slight let down. A beautiful restaurant had turned into a canteen of... More

Booked a 2 day, 1 night break for a myself and daughter in a twin room. The room was lovely and overlooked the gardens, the beds were comfortable and overall the room was very well equipped. We booked Hidden Sanctuary as one of our treatments and it was simply wonderful! We also had a facial which was included in our... More

Have just returned from fourth visit to Lifehouse, absolultely wonderful. Firstly I have to thank Martin Marshall (Resevations Manager) for kindly extending my voucher as due to unforeseen circumstances i could not use it within the six months from date of issue. My sister and I have had such a wonderful stay again, not only because of the fantastic facilities... More

I went to Lifehouse with a friend and her mum, the main reason was to share the joy of a spa with her mum who had never been to one nor ever had a massage or treatment of any kind. After much discussion her mum decided to have a back cleanse. Once in the room, the therapist for still unknown... More

I had a spa day here with my partner. I've stayed before with a friend but this time just came for a pamper & prosecco day. The package included a 3 course buffet lunch - which was nothing short of terrible. A bit of bland salad, some rice dishes, some tomato soup & a cake with flies buzzing around it.... More

Another disappointing stay at life house. The spa has definitely gone down hill in the last couple of years. I've been tens of times and it's just got worse each time I visit. The last two times have not been great and after our last visit we won't be returning. Check in not overly welcoming, the food in the restaurant... More

My sister-in-law suggested a trip to Lifehouse Spa, staying for 2 nights in July. After reading some online reviews I was a little anxious, but we had a wonderful time. The room was clean and tidy, it had everything we needed. Toiletries were refreshed daily and we were provided with fresh robes when we asked for them as ours we... More

No complaints about our room, situated on the ground floor adjacent to the garden. The Gardens are wonderful, a series of lakes and courtyards, absolutely the best thing about this place, perhaps the one thing that would bring me back. The spa itself is average, the pool we used only once, it had an unhealthy sheen from all the oils... More

Me and my friend booked this little get away for some pampering time! I loved it! The food was amazing the room was stunning and the spa and treatments where brilliant! The only downside is that the drinks aren't cheap but what do you expect! ( we took our own for the room, and kept going back and topping it... More
