I write this as a relatively new member of Wickwoods Club, having been a Virgin Active member for years. I have not stayed at the hotel as I live quite locally.
From my initial visit to tour the club I was very impressed with the attitude of the staff and very welcoming attitude. Liliane is always extremely professional and doesn't laugh when I get lost pretty much every time I go in and constantly swipe with my card incorrectly!
I have been training with Tom now for a month, and I have to say he is brilliant, very patient with me,but also firm which I frankly need. He is an asset to the gym and one of the best personal trainers I have ever had.
The grounds are truly beautiful, and it was great to just sit outside and relax in the sun this week. The pool is great and I am a regular visitor to the gorgeous spa pool /sauna/ steam room - always lovely and clean. I had a pedicure and massage in the spa, very impressed- lovely beauty therapists, chatty but still very professional.
The restaurant and bar area is ideal, staff are very attentive and everything I have eaten is top quality food. The service is very good, staff greet you with a hello, always nice after a work out.
I do not regret my decision to join Wickwoods at all, love it there. One good friend also joined last week, and I think another will next week. Thanks all.
