This spa is divine! My partner and I have been regularly coming to Clarice house for about four years now ( a visit every couple of months). They've failed to impress, the lunch is stunning and beautifully presented, staff attentive and courteous, the facilities are good to excellent. We really can't recommend them enough.

Had a spa day with my daughter on Saturday, little treat for her while battling Cancer. Was surprised when we arrived to have to pay an additional £10 each for a spa bag with robes and towels. Other spas I have been to these have been included in the price. I also asked if I could swap my foot massage... More

I had a really good day at Clarice house and would definitely come back again however there were a few things that let the day down and also a few things that made the day. I booked a wowcher deal with three other friends although there was very little difference in price to the ones that Clarice house advertise. The... More

Our visit was booked for us by my partner's daughters as a joint birthday present and was really looking forward to the day. Pros 1.Inclusive treatments were great-my partner and I were massaged at the same time in a couples room which was nice 2. The changing rooms and pool area were excellent -plenty of room, big shower cubicles, hair... More

Poor greeting at reception which continued throughout the day. The facilities were grubby with a hideous smell of old urine in the reception toilets, dirty carpet in the treatment room and greasy finger marks on the doors. Massage time shortened by 10 minutes....considerable for a 45 minute treatment. Ignored by staff at lunch by a waitress who was so clearly... More

The treatment overall was very good. I booked from an Offer I was sent and the value for money was good. The therapists are all very pleasant. I do feel sometimes they are under pressure to get a lot of customers through the door and this can sometime make the customer feel rushed and treatment times seem to be cut... More

I'm not someone who will just give a negative review for the sake of it, but today's visit to Clarice house has made me rather disappointed. This is purely aimed at the restaurant side, never in my life have a been served by such rude, miserable people! It was like we were an inconvenience to them! Drinks took so long... More

My husband and I went for afternoon tea for my birthday and it was wonderful, the sandwiches we freshly made and full of filling, beautiful scone with jam and clotted cream, but the cakes wow. 4 different little cakes plus a piece of fudge and the best honeycomb ever. This was very good value for money and can't wait to... More

I visted Clarice house at the 15th July and was shocked how run down and dirty the place was. I took photos and completed an on line feedback with photos attached and as yet no reply. I also sent them a Favebook message and again as yet no reply. Shocked at the lack of Customer Care. Our treatment room the... More
