I came here back in January for my birthday with my mum. It was lovely and the treatments were also very good. The lunch was good and people very polite. The only niggle we had were the sunbeds. None reclined!! There was only one in the whole pool area that did recline and luckily I got it but my mum... More

My daughter and I had a very disappointing spa day two weeks ago. The boiler had broken down the night before. The air temperature, pools, and jacuzzi were cold. The restaurant was still cold at lunch time, and the place only warmed up when it was time to leave. It was impossible to relax. The dressing gowns we had to... More

visited here few years back and had very good experience. However my visit yesterday was rather disappointing. My friend bought me a Spa Day for two including lunch with glass of prosecco as a birthday gift. On arrival went to reception where our booking was confirmed. Reception area seemed rather chaotic. We were asked if we wanted to purchase a... More

A real lovely spa with great deals. The pool is a fab size as well as the smaller relaxation pool and hot tub. The steam rooms etc are relaxing too. My only niggle in the pool area is the bed situation. People seem to leave their towels on the beds all day whilst they are off having treatments and lunch.... More

Very enjoyable spa visit but the charge of £10 to hire gown,slippers and towel is excessive and unjustifiable. Other spas don't charge for this. However treatments were lovely and so was lunch. Good facilities and staff were all welcoming and friendly.

This was my 5th visit to this Spa and I have been extremely happy in the past but feel standards have slipped. You have to pay for a £10 Spa bag in order to get a towel, these were free on past visits. The treatments were ok but seemed rushed and we were called 15 minutes later than our alloted... More

The leisure pool and jacuzzi were cold which was really disappointing. I came here back in august and the place over all was so much better. The food in the restaurant was really nice and the waiters nice but service was so slow. 2 hours of mostly waiting for food. The treatment me and my friend had, I had a... More

So my friend & I thought we would treat ourselves, didn't get off to a great start as we had been told over the phone that to "hire" robe & slippers ( never heard of that to be honest either) would be £5, on arrival they said that was only the robe if we wanted the slippers & bag too... More

Visited the spa on the 14th January. Brought this for a Christmas present for myself and mum via buy a gift. Arrived at the spa and couldn’t use the main entrance, as there was building works taking place. A small sign advises you to use the other entrance… It seems they are in the middle of a refurbishment. The Spa... More
