Acceptable SPA, at your own risks, with poor customer service! Simply not recommended!..

Hi, This is a follow-up review from one already posted early May. Im about to visit with a professional physiotherapist (for the second time tomorrow in less than 5 days) to hopefully and finally get out of my way the neckpain I contracted during the session my wife and I took end of April at the Holmenkollen Spa (as part of her birthday gift...). It is more than 3 weeks since I have carried this pain around, spiced up with a poor nights due to the constant disconfort felt in the lefthand part of my neck and the upper left side of my back. I was naturally hoping that it would go away by itself (and didnt plan to post this review at all) but well, given the circumstances, it looks like that I simply had too high expectations. Furthermore, in the meantime, I was also expecting the Spa management team to apologize on behalf of their therapist, which they actually did, but this did not come with any other sort of compensation from their side. Knowing the Norwegian society quite well, I would say that (1) this is very uncommon especially given the high-standard associated with the Holmenkollen Hotel brand, which explains its popularity and success along the norwegian people and tourists worldwide, and that (2) one should have expected to receive more than basic apologies if the Spa was meant to live up to its reputation and customers. On the top of that, and to explain a bit my review summary, our massage session was actually followed by a 30-minute session in a private hottub, which was so boiling hot that my wife and I had to poor freezing cold water for 5min for not getting burnt (seriously!..). The small room looked quite run down (especially for such a Spa) with an obvious flacky white paint which was only begging to be freshened up!.. This is what I will remember from this session, and I sincerely hope that if you dare paying 2500kr (250GBP) for such a session yourself, you will have a much better and unharmed memory of it afterwards, Wish you luck! BR.

Excellent service and treatment

We rented our own private jacuzzi, had a tasty blottle of bobbles and a great pair of massages. What a way to end the day after a day of skiing in the forest!
Great service and skillful masseurs.
The dressingroom and shower area by the pool does need to freshen up and the size of the SPA is quite small.
Human factor: 5/5
Facilities 3/5
Total score: a strong 4/5

Not a real spa !
Jan 2017 • Couples
Massages were ok but it was not relaxing ones. The place was noisy because of children playing and screaming in the swimming pool (the swimming pool belongs to the hotel but only a window separates the spa from the hotel). We tried to cancel massages booking as we were not satisfied with the noise but it was not possible. Be advised that there are masseurs too.

Tried to book a time at the spa on a Sunday.
First and for most they were too busy to answer the phone, but I managed to say that I and my wife would like to have a spa day on sunday, gave them our desired time and that we wished the package called romantic spa for two, they told me to leave a number and they would call me back with the details of the spa experience on sunday and that they would get an extra massuse for the day, no problem at all. They never called me back, and after 6 hours waiting I called them again. Now out of the blue they tell me that they don't work on Sundays, why not tell me this from the start and not promise something they can't deliver. Thank so much for spoiling our wedding anaversery plans. Thanks so much....
