“Great working atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I worked their for a brief 9 months in 2009. Everyone who works in the building is friendly. Everyone will talk to you, from the cleaners right up to the managers. There is a warm community feel to the building. I would recommend anyone to work there. I hope it goes from strength to strength!

“Poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Last year we had lunch at the spa cafe twice a week always enjoying a salad with a pot of tea and small piece of shortbread,convenient as we are local ,today we decided to have lunch at the spa the first time since Christmas and it was so disappointing,no little piece of shortbread anymore and the tea isn't cheap.
We ordered two turkey salads the turkey was bone dry we bought it home for the dog she thought the same turning her nose up at it,the salad was lifeless and not a lot of it there was no coleslaw and the bread roll was not fully cooked just like part baked bread.on the wall in the cafe there is a notice telling to fill in a satisfaction form,upon asking for said form was told they had run out of forms.we will not be returning to the spa. I give it 2 out of five because the cup of tea was nice.

“Restored and Ready to Impress”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

This was my first visit to The Spa since it was renovated and restored. They have made a great job of it.

A variety of attractions awaits the visitor - theatre shows, music/concerts, cinemas, coffee shop, bars etc. We had a coffee in the lovely coffee shop that has a circular, panoramic, floor to ceiling window, offering unobstructed views of the sea front from the Harbour to the north round to South Marine Drive to the south. A great view to enjoy whilst relaxing with a drink and light bite.

The list of upcoming events that are showing in the theatre is extensive and varied. I would certainly happily come to The Spa for a future show.

“Kaiser Chiefs are go!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

First time at this venue and would certainly go again. The spa was full of character tht has recently been refurbished, apparently.
Only problem was a yobbish woman who kept pushing our friend.

Hi shilstar

Thanks for your review. I'm absolutely delighted that you enjoyed the Kaiser Chiefs concert. People often remark about the character of the building - especially the glass dome in the Royal Hall. They also comment on the intimate nature of gigs here despite there being 3,800 people in the audience.

On the subject of the 'yobbish woman' and for future reference, we have a minimum of 32 security personnel, up to 40 staff members and three members of the senior management team, including me, at all events of this magnitude. We do not tolerate anti-social behaviour of any kind. If this should occur again at a future event please have a quiet word with a member of staff or security and they will ensure that the person acting inappropriately is asked to calm down - without causing any embarrassment to you, the person who brought it to our attention.

Our aim is provide superb and memorable events and experiences for our customers to enjoy whilst keeping them safe and happy in our company.

Once again, thank you for your review and we hope to see you soon.

“Kaiser chiefs concert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Have been going to concerts here since I was in my teens - about 100 years ago!!
Kaiser chiefs last night was great. The atmosphere was excited and the large crowd appeared to enjoy the quality of the music and space to dance. Bar service was a little slow as the queues were large, but that's only to be expected really.
Still looks good despite the redecoration having been done some years now. Toilets were clean and not crowded - there's plenty of them! Efficient staff and security made the evening pleasurable and safe.
As it's a smaller space than many venues for groups, there was an intimate feel to the whole event and the almost local band were well received. Certainly worth considering gong to see other bands there - even if their music isn't well known to you.
