We were presented with a nights stay for our birthdays. My wife enjoys spa days but I have never tried them before today, things will definitely change due to this experience.
The Spa Hotel at Ribby Hall Village is right at the far end of the main road through the assorted chalets, caravans and lodges. Plenty of car parking spaces surround the hotel and lots of signs to point the way to Reception.
We found all the staff to be really helpful and caring, especially the people on Reception. We had been booked in for a nights accommodation with use of the Spa, an evening meal and breakfast were included. They explained how the hotel was run with guests able to choose to walk around the hotel in robes and slip-ons from their rooms. The only time we had to dress was for the evening meal.
The Spa included a Hot Tub, saunas with herbal atmosphere, steam rooms, a whirlpool/jacuzzi, etc. The staff explained the route around the Spa and how to get the best from the experience, we just had to ask for help and they were there, ready and willing. The facilities were very clean and hygienic, staff were clearing water from walkways all the time.
The evening meal was in the Brasserie, and the food was very well presented and enjoyable. There were two courses included in our stay, so we had to pay for wine and desserts. As we stayed on a Thursday, there was a complimentary bottle of wine in our mini-bar, as well as the usual tea and coffee facilities.
Breakfast was either a cold continental selection or hot food brought to the table. This included a full English breakfast or Eggs Benedict or pancakes and Maple Syrup varieties.
After breakfast we had another hour in the Spa before we had to clear the room at 11am.
When we arrived home my wife found that I had packed the hotel hairdryer (left out on the bed) by mistake, we phoned the hotel and arranged to return the equipment asap. "Please do not send the Hairdryer Police to our abode, we could not stand the shame" I pleaded with the girl on Reception, who promised that they only send them out after a week!!!
So, in conclusion, absolutely amazing experience, I am totally sold on Spa days and now my wife can take me along and leave my daughter at home (yeah, that'll happen!). We are planning on booking another night in the near future and hope to take some friends along for the experience.
