Having been here for a massage two years ago, I was looking forward to it. Lovely location, lovely staff, fabulous massage and good price. Well worth every penny. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Been here quite a few times and they never disappointed. Very safe, clean and professional. Compared to most other options that end up being super dodgy, this is a hidden gem. Have recommended to many and it's always been a good experience.
