Amazing as ever
Sep 2020 • Solo
Machynys is one of my closest spas and by far my favourite. I've been twice since they have reopened since lockdown has lifted and they have not disappointed. I had a full body massage with Caitlin and the Middle Eastern treatment with Rebecca. Both beautiful treatments and thoroughly relaxing. The safety procedures the spa have put in place due to Covid made me felt safe and reassured. I will definitely be back again soon. Nat x

Amazing mid week full body massage deal
Aug 2020 • Solo
I had a full body massage from jess today and it was fantastic. I've had lots of aches and asked fir firm pressure, usually on a spa day this doesn't happen but jess knew exactly where needed to be worked and I feel better already.

Spa day
Feb 2020 • Couples
Most disappointing experience, i actually came out annoyed, i had a head massage, waist of time, room spelt of gloss paint, i didn't smell any essential oils, it was boring and I felt like telling her to stop, and to top it off they didn't have any gravy for my Sunday lunch. I emailed them when I got home and they didn't even apologise, £85 gutted.

Was expecting more
And they are not baby friendly!!

Had a treat from my friend for a spa day and dinner. We were welcomed very politly and shown where to go and what to do etc.
Everything was exciting.
We went in for our massage that was very wonderful and the girls were lovely and very professional.
After the massage we went to a very small spa area. Didn't have a pool, just a 'hydro pool'. We were expecting it to be busier but were glad it wasn't because it was a small area.
After chilling out a nattering we dried up and went for dinner. For the price my friend had paid I would've expected for out their dishes for food, but gave them benefit of the doubt.
Food honestly wasn't out of this world, quite bland but I didn't want to spoil the treat that my friend had paid a lot of money for. We could've gone elsewhere for a more delicious menu. As the title says, I was expecting more.
Oh and also I am appalled that they do not allow children under the age of 4 (for whatever reason) but they will allow a pre-teen boy run around from the restaurant into the bar and back again (for whatever reason)

not so relaxing massage
Jan 2020
very relaxing and pleasant spa but the massage itself was awful to the point i would say it was painful. There was no questions asked about how i'd like the massage (firm, soft etc..) Shame because as i previously say it is a very relaxing spa other than that.

Had a lovely day at the spa today. Staff were very helpful, and i had one of the best massages i have ever had. -thank you.
Shame that there isnt a pool here. And there changing rooms are a bit tight for space when busy.

Spa day with my sister
Sep 2019 • Friends
What a lovely experience we had that day , arrived , was shown around and was told to go have our complimentary drink while the rooms got up to temperature.
The massage we had , a double room was relaxing and amazing , our therapists were lovely and helped relax us .
Lunch was lush , I didnt like the soup so they changed the starter for me .
The chicken satay was just gorgeous.
We used the spa rooms and even though it was really nice the floor in the spa room is lethal, slippery and an accident waiting to happen.
The relaxation rooms are again lovely BUT there are people in and out due to the water dispenser being in the rooms , would be better put in the hallways .
Would go again but maybe a week day so it would be quieter

Anniversary visit
Jul 2019 • Couples
We visited the spa for our 5th wedding anniversary. The grounds and spa are lovely. The spa was very clean and the changing rooms are very nice. We had treatments in a double treatment room. I had a facial and my husband had a back, neck and shoulder massage both of which were very good. The spa itself is quite small, it’s a circular room with a hot tub one end and warm stone chairs the other end. A steam room, a sauna and 2 experience showers. There are hooks to hang your robe etc. The spa was quiet when we visited but you wouldn’t want more than 8-10 people in the spa. We had lunch in the restaurant which was very good and tasty. The only comment I would have is that you can’t go into the restaurant in your spa robe so we went into the spa for 1.5 hours then had to get changed to get our lunch then get back into our swimmers which was a bit of a faff but I appreciate the restaurant is separate from the spa.

Massage
Aug 2019 • Solo
A good day in all, lovely food, complementary drinks, spa area very relaxing. I could have had the use of the gym but I didn’t bother. The massage was relaxing but I although I received a massage that may have removed knots and other aches, I didn’t think I’d be in pain later. I was invigorated and relaxed during my spa day and still feel relaxed, however my neck, back and shoulders feel like I’ve taken a beating. I’ve still got red marks on my neck and back 9hrs later. Maybe I’ll go again but I hope the next massage will leave me feeling just relaxed instead of that bruised feeling.
