The Spa staff were very friendly and helpful from the moment I arrived; especially a lovely girl on reception and my therapist. I had two wonderful treatments, head massage and later a full body massage, on the most comfortable massage table I have ever experienced; then fell asleep in the dreamy Relaxation Room after each! The treatment area is cosy,... More
