Reviewed October 14, 2012

The roof terrace pool is excellent, it was raining but the water is lovely and warm. We had a massage which was really nice and relaxing.

“Relax in Bath, England... You wont need a real one!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We both visited the Thermae Bath Spa located in Bath Street, close to the Roman Baths and the Abbey is an incredible place to relax, a beautiful place to visit highly recommended. Yes it is expensive at around £26.00 and you do only get a 2 hour slot time but I felt it was well worth the price especially after coming from there and feeling great. A bit cramped in the changing rooms but not too bad. I would recommend this place for a relaxing time.

“Very very overpriced and starting to show it's age...”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

I went a few years ago and enjoyed my experience. The place wasn't long open, and it was a weekday so not too busy.
Went yesterday (a Saturday), and paid £36 for a four hour session. Really not worth the money.
All areas were packed out, no chance of a tranquil floating experience, bodies everywhere and a struggle to get into a changing room and find a free locker. The steam rooms full of noisy screaming girls and puddles of fetid water. Suppose I should have known better and gone another time but who'd have thought they'd let so many people in at once.
The place is tired now and needs a refresh, the air of "luxury" that it had when new is long gone, and replaced by the air of a council swimming pool.
Really not worth the money and if you go, avoid the weekend crowds.

“Fab experience”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I loved the whole experience. The pools were great and the steam rooms were excellent. I especially liked the fragrant herbs. The changing rooms felt a bit like the municipal baths, no creature comforts there, but were adequate.
