Greeting on arrival was great. My room was not ready but they took my bags and showed me to the bar. Bar staff were really friendly and they make amazing coffee! my bags were taken to my room when it was ready and I went off to see the nutritionist. She really knew her stuff and i came away with...

We have just returned from a spa day at Lifehouse, which is my third visit in total, and the only one I haven't stayed overnight for. For day spa customers, the service is absolutely not watered down what so ever, and is still as impeccable as if you are an overnight guest. We were shown around all of the facilities... More

Booked it as my boyfriend birthday present, but they didn't acknowledge him or even a happy birthday, room was clean, can't comment on food as dined elsewhere for evening meal, breakfast was good, the disappointing part was the spa, one steam room, one sauna, one room that didn't seem to be working, jacuzzi some of the seats didn't work and...

I have just returned from a one night spa breah and was so sad to leave. I have been to a lot of spa's and worked in one and this one took my breath away. The staff were so lovely, friendly, passionate, and very complimentary about the place they work. I booked this as an Amazon deal and was nervous... More

Beautiful grounds, great quirky building with exellent facilities. Friendly down to earth staff whom try hard. However attention to detail is lacking. Jacuzzi lights not working, nor some of the switches to release air. Sunbeds in wet area stacked up and pool cover left untidy. Changing rooms and area grubby. Robes one size abit small and large one was massive... More

My partner and I decided to go to the "Lifehouse Spa Restaurant" for a evening meal. We were greeted at the reception by a friendly lady who actually took us to the restaurant area. The meal was nicely presented and very tasty. An enjoyable meal with nice background music to compliment the surroundings. The staff were extremely friendly and it... More

Not a very pretty building or pool area - have visited a lot nicer. I had been before as a day spa visitor. On this occasion we visited as a group of 6 with overnight stay. At 11am on arrival we were told we could not use the facilities until after 3pm when our room became available. (Never known this... More

I stayed here with my husband for one night, so we could simply chill out. Everywhere was very clean, and the room was lovely and warm with a modern feel. We had dinner in the restaurant which was a two course set menu for was £27.50 each, which we thought was on the expensive side, as although it was nice... More

We had just a 1 night stay with some treatments and spa time either side. On first impressions, it seemed a little too Essex; slightly pretentious and showey, but actually all the staff were very friendly and the clientele all very relaxed. The facials and massages we had felt luxurious and were very well delivered. The food and general spa... More

My friend and I booked for 2 nights stay and I extended it by another 2 nights just for myself back in 30 Oct- 3 Nov 2013. So I arrived first then my friend joined me later. We both first-timers to a spa and felt strange wondering round in a dressing gown when we're both 5"3 and under with slippers... More
