Reviewed February 24, 2013

Stayed for the 4 day healing retreat, with friends.
Loved my room, (the Peony room) very comfy bed, great views, short walk into the town centre,
Glastonbury is a wonderful place, so magical.
Our Host the beautiful Juliet was so kind and helpful, organising a tour of the sacred sites on my request. My treatments were all amazing. it felt like i had been away for much longer.
highly recommend a vist here.

Though advertised as a b&b this is actually nothing of the kind, unless your idea of B&B is: cheap supermarket bread and cereals, other food being put in a dirty fridge - no idea who bought what, or how old anything is.... and if you don't get up in time, the other guests will eat everything vaguely edible, while shouting at the tops of their voices about their guru etc. etc. - shortly after dawn.
Both bathrooms need a good scrub, there is mould in both of them and filthy grouting.
There is a serious safety issue: there are about 14 steepish steps down to the house. At night there is no lighting (those little cheap solar-powered ones don't work in winter), and on reaching the front door to input the code to enter, there was no light at all - though when we finally got into the house (thanks iphone) we found the light switch for the outside porch was..... on the other side of the locked door.
We felt about as welcome as a fart in a packed lift.
We don't belong to the cult that seem to regard this house as their spiritual home from home. We booked it in good faith as a professionally run bed and breakfast place and felt that we did not receive either good value for money, or reasonably service.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

A very clean and cared for house and yes, as others have mentioned, good and positive energy there. I would have liked to have known before I paid online, that there would be no one there as that wasn't clear, and also no breakfast prepared for me as most B and Bs in the UK do. There was cereal and good bread, but there was some mouldy yoghurt in the fridge which was a bit off-putting. Also I arrived in the evening, and it was tricky negotiating the steps down in the dark and tapping in the code to open the door. The best bit was the jacussi!! The walk into town was a perfect amount of exercise, and the views were great from the house. Also the violet room was indeed tiny, but lots of room in the rest of the house (as I had it to myself) I stayed for a course the next day and the heating was erratic but was fine in the end.

I have stayed here a number of times, it is consistently lovely, clean, peaceful and juliet the owner is a warm and lovely lady. You make your own breakfast when you feel like it, sit on the terrace and look at the beautiful views. It is a little away from the town, maybe a 15/20min walk, partly uphill. There are a couple of parking spaces and the whirlpool bath is a treat. Great if you are alone and want some peace and great with friends. A safe space.

Wow!, I initially went to Glastonbury to get some answers into my spiritual life. I chose the Healing waters retreat because it looked intriguing and captured my imagination.
The Yurt I booked was warm cosy and inviting.The house was immaculate, clean and a real sense of free flowing energy. The Food was very healthy and was nourishing . There aura of the house spelt heal. The location was literally five minutes from the town itself and yet remained secluded. Waking up at healing waters was magical. Standing on the deck out of the double doors to the rear of the property, you are looking down into the very heart of Glastonbury. Avalon. If you look to your left you are able to see the tor. The bathroom had a jacuzzi bath and after a days walking, was a welcome to myself with its soothing colours and bubbles!
The healing waters aided me in my quest for answers as it provided a space which includes the ability to heal, relax and give you a space in which to think. Juliet is an amazing woman,.I cannot specify how amazing this retreat is. I have already said i will be back !
Namaste xxxx

I spent my time in the Violet room, the single bedroom, and it was incredibly small. There was just enough room for my suitcase. This bedroom is also situated next to the shared bathroom, and with the thin walls, your sleep can be disturbed by other guests using it during the night. If I were to stay at Healing Waters again, i'd pay extra money for another room. Pricing is reasonable, however I would not pay extra to use the kitchen (there was no microwave, a gas cooker, and I was out most of the time anyway).
The B&B is a bit of a walk from the town too, probably just about as far as you want to be walking. This is more suitable if you want a retreat with an occasional visit to the town.
