“Poor customer service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

My fiance and I visited the turkish baths on valentines day. As a suprise he'd booked me in for a half hour back massage. My therapists manner was off hand and it was clear she couldn't be bothered. I told her my neck is my problem area so she suggested she split the massage- half the time on my back and then turn me over and focus on my neck. She spent 10 mins massaging my back and 3/4 mins on my neck. Less than half the time i was paying for. It was supposed to be a 30 min massage for £30 but worked out at over £2 a minute! I complained to the manager and he said he would speak to the therspist and then call me. He rang the nx day to tell me the therspist had denied cutting short my time and in fact she felt she had run over time because she had done some "extra" work on my neck. He explained that there was obviously some discrepancy over time on my part and then went silent. I filled in the awkward silence by thanking him for calling me back and we said goodbye. After I got off the phone I wished I hadn't been so polite. I felt embarrassed as if I'd been made out to he a liar. The complaints procedure and customer service was extremely poor and I certainly wouldn't book a treatment there again.

“A must visit! Lovely afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Words of advice - book early if you want to go on a specific date.

We visited on a Friday. Period facilities well restored. Well worth a visit but it can get busy.

The plunge pool is the biggest I have ever been to and it is VERY cold!

“Well worth (multiple!) visiting - so unique!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

I've never been to a place like this - so well preserved and colourful in all its Victorian glory, while being clean and contemporary in its service. We were initally talked through the process by a really friendly fellow, and then left to enjoy it at our leisure in a not-too-crowded and relaxed atmosphere. The decor is so ornate but the facilities themselves modern and functional - clean towels whenever you like and showers equipped with soap.
We then paid extra for a massage which involved a robe and a good 40 minutes in the exclusive jacuzzi room, and the massage itself was so relaxing, and professional but friendly, taking into account that we'd never had one before.
