I visited the retreat week commencing 4/9 for seven days. The program is physically and mentally tough. However if you stick to the program, it does what it says on the tin and it does work. Olga the house keeper works really hard all day catering for your needs whilst Ellie is so supportive and helpful. Galia gives you that...

Dear Friend, thank you so much for your trust in us. It is a huge leap of faith when guests first arrive wondering what to expect and what their results will be. We have passed on your kind thanks to the team; they are always lovely to read and are appreciated. Your results speak for themselves. You can't achieve those...

I stayed for 5 nights in August as a solo traveller. I lost 9 1/2 lbs and felt amazing when I left. I went for health reasons and even after just 6 days my back had improved and I was sleeping better. The regime is tough mentally and physically and due to my back problems I wasn't able to do...

Dear Friend, You were brilliant! A ray of sunshine in the sunshine, we wish all our guests were as positive as yourself. Your results speak for themselves; you took responsibility, embraced the programme, even those bits that weren't your favourite, and because of your attitude and hard work you achieved...and our programme helped, of course!! The cold water swimming is...

Go for a week, have a go at everything, eat all the food and you will lose weight. I was very happy to lose ten and a half pounds. I am using this opportunity as the start of my personal journey to a healthier place. It's not a 4 star spa holiday it is 'Galia's Way' that will mean you...

The positive: I've just come back from a week here and lost 10.5lbs which I was thrilled with. If you stick to the meals and attend all walks and classes you WILL lose weight, you can't not lose weight on 400 calories a day. It is tough, I was sick on the second day and generally felt hideous (all part...

Dear Guest, Firstly, thank you for lovely positive comments and congratulations on your amazing weight loss results. Detox does deliver in some people, very real symptoms and that's why we ask our prospective guests to detox before their arrival, it is a truly great help to them when this can be done.

Once you arrive at the charming Georgian house just eat what you are given (and nothing else!) and enjoy the moderate exercise of a lovely morning walk followed by classes and you will lose a substantial amount of weight.

I am in my seventies and wanted to get fit again following some leg and knee problems. Losing some weight would be a bonus. Having been twice previously for a week on each occasion, I decided to be extra-focused and booked for a two-week stay in June/July and as I arrived, it felt like coming home! Yes, it was hard...

Dear Friend, Well, firstly, doesn't it just show that age is no barrier, simply a state of mind and knowing one's limitations within which to work. What an inspiration you are, and we don't mean down to your age, your positivity, good humour and delightful interaction with all the Slimmeria Team was so rewarding for us and your fellow guests...

Dear Guest, we are sorry to read of your disappointment, especially, after you achieved such amazing results of your losing 8lbs. in two days. We note from your "booking in" form that you aimed to lose 5/6 lbs. and from particular areas, you realised both of those, and on our programme, excelled them. On your arrival, the shared room option...

I was a guest for 26 days beginning mid June 2016 and lost 27 pounds and 15 total inches from my chest, waist and hips.

Dear Friend, you were indeed with us for 26 days and you worked yourself to your limits on just about every single one of them.
