“Very relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

I'd read a few bad reviews and honestly I just couldn't understand why. Yes I could hear the lady talking in the room next door but my massage was so relaxing that I blocked it out. I wish I remembered my girls name because she was wonderful. I work at a desk all day and have very tight shoulders and back and afterwards I felt great. It might not look like a palace but the massage more than made up for it. Definately book a massage here whilst in pd. It was great!!

“Great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

I found a coupon in one of the local tourist books for an hour massage and 30 minute facial for just over $100 - money well spent.. but remember to book a few days in advance as they were booked out a few days I enquired. Very relaxing and enjoyable day spa.

“Great start to our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

My daughter and I had a massage, facial and pedicure here last week. We both agreed that the massage, from Erin, was the best either of us had ever had. She really knew her stuff. The facial was very relaxing too.

“First day relaxation spa day will keep you coming back for more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

The 45 minute massage given by Chris, not only unknotted my computer induced neck tightness, but also allowed a wonderful way to start a weeks break. Heading in there with friends we each had a different masseur but all had a great experience. Well worth visiting.

You wouldn't believe how much more common it is for people to save up the treat for their last day , then come out saying " If only I'd had this on the first day ! What a different holiday it would have been ..."
Of course personally , I love it when we get the guests who decide to forget about all the running around they had planned , and just opt to come in and have the chance to work out their problems , and go home feeling like they've REALLY had a holiday .
Thanks so much for taking the time to give us feedback .

“Deep Relaxation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

I always manage to pop in at least once into this place when I'm in town. I have had good massages here in the past but my last one was amazing. I can't remember the lady's name but I really appreciate the open communication in regards to tailoring the massage to my needs. As I only booked an hour she asked
-pressure depth
-favourite areas (scalp of course!)
-problem areas

I liked that she checked pressure depth during the massage without disturbing my relax and made sure before we commenced that I needed to let her know if I wanted more or less pressure in certain areas. It was nice that she tailored the treatment to my needs so I got exactly what I wanted.

Will definately be back next time.

Sabrina , it's the best thing after being here 13 years , to see familiar faces coming back in year after year .We have a particular politician who comes up from Canberra each year , has massages every day for a week , then says " Right , I'm good for another year now !" .She also showed me her Blackberry , with reviews of all the spas in town , and a note against our name saying :" The good one " written 10 years ago .
We look forward to looking after you next time you're in town
