I visited the spa for a friends hen do. We had pre booked the Summer Sizzler deal which was basically 2 for 1 which made it very affordable. I think I would have been disappointed had I paid full price for the Spa.
After check in you are given a tour of the Spa, the changing rooms are quite small with no private cubicals unless you count the toilets. So for anyone who is body concious.
You were given a robe ( one size fits all ), slippers and towels. The robes were grubby around the collar and some looked well worn. But it was a nice touch to get a bag to put them all in.
Check in was smooth and the staff seemed attentive. We were all allocated slots for late afternoon for our treatments. So lots of time to lie around. We were a group of 6 and they were another 3 groups of 2 so it did feel a little crowded as there are not enough beds for all in the relaxation area.
I was a little disappointed with the lack of music or the offer of an MP3 player or Ipod to use. They did have magazines to read.
The Hydro pool and Sauna/Steam areas could do with a bit of work. The steam room had tiles missing from the seating area and holes in the wall where it looked like someone had punched the wall or fallen into it. The hot/cold rain shower wasn't working, kept running cold only.
The cafe area is nice and the food was good but drinks were expensive.
As it was a hen do I would have expected a bit more pampering, maybe a glass of bubbly on arrival or with lunch.
As for the treatment it was WONDERFUL, Zoe the therapist was very attentive. The rooms were nice and relaxing and very clean. As this was an aromatherapy massage I was expecting a choice of oils but this was chosen by the therapist. The massage was lovely and very relaxing.
I probably wouldn't return as overall the spa was a little tired and could do with some attention.
I would probably recommend the half day pass as anything longer and it gets a bit boring.
