A very good spa, clean and not too busy

The spa here was clean, lots to do and not too busy. Staff were friendly and attentive. We would stay here again but only on a deal.

I am afraid that the spa day was not a very good experience, the only things that were good was the back massage and the facial. The quickest pedicure I have ever had was appalling , the cuticle stick and other utensils used on my feet were just got out of a drawer and then put back in the drawer... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here. Our room was beautiful with incredible views. The food was good and drinks reasonable. The spa treatments were second to none although felt the spa facility could have been improved. Would definitely revisit.

We rang lifehouse after booking a day at five lakes and being very disappointed with the decor and lay out. Lifehouse said they could accommodate us and supply afternoon tea and treatments. Lifehouse is amazing and the best Spa day I've been too. The atmosphere and staff made us feel welcome, the facilities are spotless and there is an endless... More

Spent a day at lifehouse spa, the pool and treatments were enjoyable however the afternoon tea was a disappointment lacking in quality and variety. Staff were generally very helpful

Visited here with my boyfriend for the pamper and prosecco package, we had a 50 minute full body (not quite full body) massage each - which wasn't the greatest, but still good. The setting is just divine, set on beautiful land. The lunch buffet was great and catered for me being vegan, only thing I would say to critique the... More

Just returned from our third visit at the Life house Spa. My husband has a very stressful job and this is 'just what the doctor ordered'. He had his first ever massage here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We visited in half term and it was bliss to be able to use a pool without being dive bombed by kids as... More
