I have visited Alton Towers day spa on numerous occasions and will continue to visit to use the Aqua relaxtion rooms due to the bargain price. I am suprised by some of the reviews, They seem to be expecting a champneys experience for £10!
My partner and I both have demanding jobs and children, so every so often we decide to have a day just for us, therefore this is a cheap way to relax away from everyday stress.
The Aqua relaxation rooms are £10 off peak and £18.50 peak. For either a morning 10:30- 3pm or a evening session 4pm- 8:30pm
Roman Sauna - a tiled room with gentle steam, bit cold for my liking
Pool, whirlpool & hot-tub - nice size pool for relaxing swim, whirlpool is large area and the jacuzzi is lovely
Crystal Steam - nice hot steam room with aromatherapy oils.
Foot Reflexology - 4 footbaths available nice and relaxing, ideal while reading a book.
The Conservatory - seating area with magazines, fresh fruit and water available, you can purchase additional drinks from here.
Meditation Room - this is my favouret room, twinkling stars, heated couches and soft music, I was relaxed until I heard my partner snoring!!
The negatives are the changing rooms are small, I would say you could fit 5 maximum in the changing room, ok for the men as there are only ever a few men here! Also there is only 1 female and 1 male toilet, so make sure you don't leave it too late or you could have a queue. The spa itself is very small and all contained within the one area, however they do have a maximum capacity so booking is recomended.
The food in the hotel was terrible when we came, over priced and bland so I wouldn't recomend eating here, however there are some lovely pubs in alton to stop in for lunch.
Overal a very goof experience if you are not expecting much, at the end of the day its only £10 and where else could you spend a day for such a small amount?
