From the moment we walked in the spa we were relaxed. It's truly beautiful with amazing staff on hand for anything you need.

The spa itself isn't huge, but don't let that put you off. The outside area made it for us, cuddle up near the fire pit under a blanket which was amazingly cosy with drinks and snacks brought to you whenever you ask. We would recommend going for an evening session to make the most of the beautifully lit outside area.

The experience rooms are actually quite large, however we only had to share with one other person on one occasion.

My only nit-picky comment is that I think they would benefit from some twinkly music on as on occasion we could hear people in the main area (although they might have been exceptionally loud!).

The food was beautiful too, can't wait to go back

Hi Amy01302, Thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely review following your recent visit. I couldn't agree more when it comes to our staff. They truly are amazing and we are very lucky to have each and every one of them. With regards to the music, you will be pleased to hear, this has now been resolved. At the time of your visit, we had some sort of technical gremlins at work which meant guests could not hear the music we have piped through into the spa and also in the outside area. Hopefully it won't be too long before you make your return visit and I look forward to welcoming you back to the spa. Best Wishes Angela

Took my niece for her 6th birthday to the ‘tween spa day’. We had 3 hours spa access and she loved it. She wasn’t so bothered about the sauna rooms but these are not very exciting for little ones however she loved the indoor and outdoor pool (pool noodles were provided) with the buttons for the bubbles and the foot spa and ice walk. At one point she told me she was going to pinch herself to see if she was dreaming. The only thing I would suggest to improve for youngsters in future with these events would be to add some children's magazines to the relaxation areas and possibly a couple of free nibbles as I ordered her some popcorn and a hot chocolate which was slightly disappointing for the price. Staff were all lovely and friendly and very professional especially when she slipped over. They were straight over checking if she was okay and filled out appropriate accident forms. Would definitely recommend for a youngsters birthday for boys and girls alike.

Dear tammylks95, Thank you for the lovely feedback and comments. It is wonderful to hear that your daughter had such a fabulous time with us. It sounds as though she is well and truly converted to the benefits of spa time ! With regard to the snacks, we do have a variety of offerings for these, including crisps, popcorn and various biscuit options which are priced as competitively as possible. I am sorry you were disappointed with your choice on the day. As the spa sessions are for just the 3 hours, many children find they have enough to keep them occupied whilst they are with us, without the need for anything else being provided. However, if you do chose to return, you are more than welcome to bring along a book or magazine for your daughter of her own choice to browse through and read whilst enjoying the relaxation areas. Once again, thank you for such lovely comments and hopefully we will see you and your daughter at the next family spa session! Best Wishes Angela

Most incredible spa day with my boyfriend, we arrived at the spa and sat in the bar/lounge which was beautiful by the way! we had such attentive staff and it was the warmest welcome. The changing rooms were super luxurious and our lockers had the nicest robe and slippers. We met in the spa/pool area and got a mini tour of everything so we knew what saunas did what which i thought was nice. The spa itself was incredible, there was something for everyone and it was so relaxing. The food for me was a BIG highlight! they gave us fresh bread on the table to start covered in rock salt which complimented so nicely and i ordered the Roast Lamb which blew my mind it was that good. I 100% Recommend to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy some delicious food.

Visited last week for my son in laws 40th Birthday treat, unfortunately it was ruined with a couple of guys running around with there mobile phones, in particular on loud speech, and hogging all of the beds!
This is supposed to be a relaxing atmosphere as advertised.
As a Managing Director I left my phone in the Locker, to have a peaceful day with no interruption's, and didn’t expect this, unfortunately it ruined the day for our party.

Would have considered this for corporate days out, but not now after our recent visit.

However the food in the Restaurant and the service was brilliant.

Dear jltradin, I am sorry to hear that your spa day was spoiled by two guests using their mobile phones. On arrival everyone is provided with our spa etiquette which includes a request for discreet use of mobile phones and a polite request to remove gowns and towels from loungers when not using them. All our staff are very mindful of these requirements and aware of the negative impact these can have on other users of the spa if not adhered to. They constantly remove unattended gowns and towels from the loungers and beds. If any guest is behaving in a manner that is deemed inappropriate or too loud, they will report this to the manager on duty so appropriate action can be taken. I can only apologise if the behaviour of these 2 guests went unnoticed on the day of your visit and I am sorry you did not feel you were able to mention this at the time. I would like to assure you, if it had been brought to our attention, it would have been dealt with. If you would like to confirm the date of your visit, I can check with the Manager and staff on duty that day to establish if they were aware of any issues. Best Wishes Angela

This was the best Spa that we have been to. My 5 friends and me have visited numerous Spas over the last 10 years and this one is far superior to all of them. The attitude, skill and knowledge of all of the team is exemplary. My therapist was Lizzie who was incredible. The extra attention to detail in the Spa made the experience so enjoyable. All of the team were helpful and cheerful. I highly recommend this Spa to anyone whe wants a totally enjoyable experience.

We went to the spa as 2 x mums and 2 x daughters for a birthday treat. We weren't dissapointed with the excellent facilities and the staff. Sadly however there was a group.of women there who seemed to enjoy the alcohol more....they were quite loud and obviously not interested in whether they upset anyone else or not. To be fair the staff handled them well and we received apologies on numerous occasions. This put a slight dampener on our day as we were looking forward to a rest and chill out as it was a Sunday.
The food was beautiful and a good selection.
We will return and hopefully have another day to relax and unwind.😚
I do feel that maybe parties of above 6 should be monitored but that's my personal view.
Thankyou to the staff Irina Jerry and Emma you were helpful and excellent interpersonal skills 😊

Dear sally10270 Thank you so much for the 5 star review. I am only sorry that the group had a slight negative impact on your day. As you mentioned, the spa staff are excellent at managing behaviour and noise levels to ensure all guests can have a peaceful and relaxing day with us, irrespective of group numbers. Your lovely feedback will be passed onto all the team and I know Irina, Jerry & Emma will be particularly pleased with their personal mentions! Once again, thank you, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the spa again, which will hopefully be very soon! Best Wishes Angela

Spent a lovely afternoon relaxing in the spa experience rooms. Couldn’t fault the facilities, hygiene or customer service - especially Meghan who we found really friendly and attentive. Our only gripe was the large party who hogged the outdoor loungers all afternoon and didn’t move their robes from the beds whilst using the indoor facilities - we were asked by staff on arrival not to do this so it would have been fairer if staff could have gently reminded the party of this. Overall would definitely revisit

Perfect spa day! Best spa I’ve ever been to! Friendly attentive staff throughout and so many wonderful spa experiences and facilities included in the day! Nice touches such as bringing round trays of fruit & free flavoured water & teapigs herbal teas whenever you wanted one. Lunch was amazing & beautifully presented. Enjoyed by our sixteen year olds too who loved trying out the shower walk experience…..
Could not fault it at all!

It's been a week since my spa day and I wish I were there again today. Beautiful spa, exceptionally clean. We arrived on the day that the steam bath had re-opened so we were able to use all the facilities as we wished. In terms of COVID - our temperatures were taken on arrival, mask etiquette explained. All staff are wearing masks throughout the spa. When a chair or lounger were vacated these were sprayed down and cleaned. The place is spotless anyway but these extra precautions are reassuring.
We both had a lovely massage in the morning, just the right amount of pressure then spent time in the post treatment relaxation room which is gorgeous.
I'm not sure what I can say about lunch, other than that we have both been trying to recreate it at home with little success! It was delicious, we both had salmon main and sticky toffee pudding which were out of this world.
The staff are friendly, explained everything really well and looked after us wonderfully. Can't wait to return.

Dear janeypt, Thank you for such a wonderful review. I couldn't agree more about the food, our team of chefs are incredibly talented! I will pass on your lovely comments to all our amazing team of staff as they will be delighted with your feedback. It is particularly pleasing to hear that our covid secure procedures were easy for you to both see and follow, whilst clearly not having a negative impact on your experience with us. This is exactly what we were aiming to achieve when we compiled our protocols. We certainly hope you are able to return very soon. Best Wishes Angela

Last weekend I stayed at the spa with my family/friends and we had a lovely time. The spa rooms were excellent and we would definitely go back. Heather, one of the ladies in the spa, left a very positive and lasting impression on us. She was wonderful, very polite, friendly and professional. Always smiling and ensured we were happy. We all went away saying how great she is and how we’d go back to stay in the future. Thank you, Heather, you were brilliant!
