Been coming here a few times, whenever I'm over in Co Down from London. It's fantastic - really relaxing. They have a choice of steamshower or old-school style steam-box - think Laurel & Hard. I prefer the more modern steamshower, but most of my family...More

I couldn’t imagine how relaxing these baths would be. They exceeded all expectation. My body felt so good afterwards. I can not recommend these baths enough / a must do if staying in the area.

Really hospitable at reception. Enjoyable experience and much cheaper than the equivalent at the Slieve Donard, probably more relaxing as well!

It ranges from £25 for a single person to £50 for a shared room. You can have a double bath for a couple for £40 I think. It is well worth it, I'd highly recommend it

Go to Google, type in Soak Seaweed Baths, Newcastle; find the website and all the details you need to know about seaweed baths (including pricings) are there. It'll take you about 20 seconds. Simples.
