What a Disappointment
I have stayed at Hotel Viking and this time around we decided to treat ourselves to a belated valentines day massage
When I called and booked the appointment I was told that automatically 20% would be added on to the service which at the time I didn't think it so a bad idea.
I have been to alot of high end spas and reg spas and was never asked to do that in advance.
I arrived at the spa on time and was sent to the relaxation room. Plenty of magazines, very nice room with dim lightening and refreshment but lacked in space. When I arrived there was no one in the room and 5 minutes later there was barley any seating. The room hold max 6, people that wanted to sit had to basically leave.
My massage therapist arrived and lead me to my room, I was asked if any areas were giving me an issue and I said Yes and asked if that are could we worked on.
The massage started off opposite of what I am used to, it started with you laying upwards and no oils or lotion for the beginning. The massage continued but it never felt like a massages usually does. My knees were massages which was very weird. The entire time I also felt like everything was being rushed. I understand that they massages are timed but I felt that it was all speed and just trying to get it over with. It all felt rushed. My ENTIRE shoulder problem are was ignored completely adn my entire shoulders were ignored. I was poked on the sides which was weird again. And it felt more like a back rub if you can call it that. My outer arm was massages, again weird. It felt like a completely opposite of what a massage is. I have never been so disappointed in a massage before and wished I didn't have to leave 20%. I have been to higher end places and lower end spas and have tipped above the 20% and felt walking on air. I sadly need to go back to a real massage!
Least to say I was extremely disappointed and would never go back. I figured that since there already tipped and want people in and out they didn't really care to build a relationship for the future
