Obsidian went beyond my expectations! I arrived a little unnerved for a five night stay ... and I can´t wait to go back ... and my wish is that everyone had the opportunity to give it a go! Everyone goes for different reasons .... some people for weightloss, some people for general fitness, others for a detox and destress time-out... More

Obsidian seems to have great reviews, so I was incredibly disappointed when I arrived and found it is really just a glorified weight loss camp. I have an auto immune illness and thought I would be receiving a bit of tailored support for my condition (Lupus) but instead apart from a weigh in when I arrived and at the end... More

I have visited Obsidian twice now and it has revolutionised my lifestyle. Healthy eating, exercise and sunshine is a complete recipe for well being. The staff are friendly, supportive and knowledgeable. It isn't boot camp, it is encouraging and nurturing. I can honestly say I have never felt so well as I have on leaving Obsidian. You can go alone... More

Just returned from a weeks stay. My first ever experience of this type of break. Lovely setting. Very good facilities. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Food /juice wonderful. The fitness and mindset coaches were incredibly helpful and supportive. The beauty salon staff were also excellent. To be honest all the staff we saw on a daily basis - cleaners, grounds... More

I recently made my fourth visit to Obsidian and had another wonderful stay. I achieved my goals of relaxing, getting fitter and losing some weight to boot. As usual, I particularly enjoyed the yoga and the walks. I was delighted that some new walks have been added to the mix. There are now a choice of 4. Another innovation was... More

I was ad Obsidian Mid March 2015 for one week. I had a single room in the building where the reception is, it was a small but nice and clean room (nice beds!) the walls are thin, so you might hear sometimes your neighbour or the reception area. I enjoyed the morning walks a lot and also went jogging the... More

I am sat here in my lovely room - on my 9th and final evening of my wonderful stay at Obsidian - so I feel well placed to write this review as it is all fresh in my mind. I have been on a few detox retreats and bootcamps etc - but I must say that this is by far... More

I went here for a day (day pass) with some friends and really enjoyed the experience. Firstly the staff here are very friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is bright, clean and spacious. We chose to take part in a yoga class, cross training, rebounding and a walk in the beautiful countryside. We each had a health assessment and... More

Just got back from a 10 day trip. I don't think I'm a typical guest. Most are female and have a lot of weight to lose. However I lost almost 5kg and it was very easy. The juices are tasty and not at all hard core. The food was apparently good - but I did juice and soup - for... More
