I have visited Champneys in Forest Mere twice now and have had a lovely, relaxing time on each occasion. The food is delicious and the treatments wonderful. I certainly felt relaxed by the end, as one would hope from a spa.
There are a few little things that make this feel very much a 4 rather than 5 star spa though, which, judging by the cost, really should be improved upon. As mentioned in several other reviews, the decor is looking really tired and there aren't anywhere near enough seats or loungers to accommodate everyone. I went with my fiancé and we were frustrated to find that the steam room, plunge pool, and relaxation rooms are all single sex so we couldn't enjoy these together.
We also had a bad start to the day. I had booked our treatments and times well in advance but, when we were given our itinerary on arrival, we discovered that 4 out of 5 treatments listed were incorrect and all of the times were wrong. Staff were unapologetic as they nervously searched to see if they could squeeze us in somewhere. Not exactly a great start to the stress-free day you expect.
Once this was resolved though, we were able to enjoy the rest of the day.
