Booked through Virgin Experience for a night including massage and dinner. The food and massage was good but the spa is very overcrowded that we couldn't get a lounger and had to wait for sauna and hydro pool. We mentioned our disappointed at checkout but they just said they knew about it. For the money I have visited more relaxing...

Booked in with a friend for a girls getaway. Been to lots of spas but this was the worst one. Bedroom tired, toilet in the bathroom leaked water all over the floor and being woken at 1 am by drunken guests knocking on all the doors was the final straw. If you leave your book on a bed by the...

we had a spa break 7/8th January. The hotel is not pretty but blends well into the landscape, the gardens are fabulous! We had a great time, the room was spotless and spacious, breakfast and dinner both delicious and the spa area clean, with plenty of loungers. It was busy but we had plenty of room. The greatest asset this...

My wfie and I stayed at the Lifehouse Hotel & Spa for my wife's 40th birthday on Dec 27th 2016. We arrived just before 3pm, checked in, changed into our robes (which weren't fluffy but quite worn, i.e. a similar texture to a BHS towel after twenty washes and you get the idea) then headed to the spa area.
