My friends & I stayed here to celebrate a big birthday in our group, & from start to finish, our stay here was lovely. The staff were fantastic, & nothing was too much bother. It seemed as though everything had been thought of in terms of the facilities in the hotel, up to & including scented water in the spa showers!
My treatment was wonderful, though I did get a slight sense that the therapist was in a rush. My friends & I were booked for the same treatments at the same time, & I came out before some of the people that went in before me. However I did feel thoroughly relaxed after my massage.
The meal that we had at the spa was fantastic, & the food imaginative & well considered. My friends & I had organised a balloon & cake to be in the restaurant as a little surprise for our birthday girl, & this seems to be no trouble for the staff.
HOWEVER ... our meal in the restaurant seemed to take an AGE in arriving, & in total we were in the restaurant for almost 3 1/2 hours waiting for our meals. We did mention this to the guest liaison member afterwards who was very polite, but didn't seem to really do anything, & didn't offer a free drink or some money off our bill which we may would have expected elsewhere. The fact that everything else at Lifehouse was so perfect made this a rather glaring issue. However this would not stop me from going back...I'll just wait until they have some special offers on before I book as it's really rather pricey
