Went for a mini spa day with my gf. It was all very proffessional and you are looked after very well from when you enter.
There was no problem parking in the hotel car park.
The girls running the spa were very attentive and made sure you knew everything and had everything catered for.
The spa facilities belong to the hotel.
We went in the gym first, it is very nice and very high tech, but not your average gym, more catering for cardio than any weight training, but it is a hotel gym after all.
You have an electronic key you put in the equipment, I didn't find this very useful and they didn't all work properly.
We then went in the pool and other spa facilities, the pool is very clean, 1.2 m throughout and a good size.
At the side there is a jacuzzi.
At one end a steam room, sauna and a tropical shower which is brill, it's not what you expect, is like a rainforest experience, a fine mist which drenches you. Went in both steam room and sauna. The steam room had a eucalyptus scent.
Outside there is a Canadian hot tub. Very nice and we did get to go in, although when the area gets busy you might have to wait as there is really only room for six people at most.
The relaxation room is lovely, you look down on Ambleside retail area. The seats are arranged a little strange I thought with the screen between two seats close to each other and a gap to the next, when I first walked in with my partner, I wasn't sure where it was best to sit.but we were ok and it certainly is a place you can fall asleep.
The treatment rooms are behind you and we had a great experience with what we had chosen.
The changing room for the men was a little cramped as the other was closed but it was ok.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and well worth our afternoons indulgence.
Fully recommend the mini spa day for an afternoon. You really are left to do what you want and as long as you respect the facilities and other people there are no real rules given to you like some places.
