I have now visited the spa several times. Will definitely go again. Was last there in nov 2017 with both my mother and mother-in-law and they both loved it. My only criticism is the food in the spring restaurant/ cafe. Over priced and underwhelming. It is not on par with other elements of the spa experience. As I have now been several times I know it’s not a one off.

As in Rome so to speak!! Went to the thermal spa and £36 of disappointment! Very crowded and had to queue for ages to get in! The steam and sauna very mild as door kept opening and closing!! Space room very disappointing and a little cheesy! Rooftop pool nice but so crowded and jacuzzi pods vry temperamental!! Good if you got money n time to spare in Bath but generally was expecting more n better

Thank you for your comments. We are happy to hear that your enjoyed our Rooftop Pool, however we are sorry that other aspects of your visit left you feeling disappointed.

We acknowledge your remarks on the spa being crowded. As Bath is a popular destination for days out and short breaks, Saturdays & Sundays tend to be the busiest days at the Spa, however there can also be the occasional busy period during the week. We are constantly mindful of the number of visitors admitted into Thermae Bath Spa and we apologise if you felt the spa was overcrowded.

We respect your views on the price of entry and we try our best to make Thermae Bath Spa as accessible as possible. Most of our customer feedback suggests that many of our guests believe Thermae to be good value for money, so we do apologise that you feel this way.

Once again, thank you for your feedback.

We had prebooked the "thermae together" package and actually ended up in the spa from 12 until 6.45, almost 7 hours! We loved both the indoor and rooftop pools and the use of pool floats was a nice touch and added to the relaxation. The smells in each of the steam rooms were lovely. Although skeptical at first the ice room was actually a good way to cool off! We went in the celestial room to see what it was about. We had to keep checking for space as only 5 people can fit in there. It was relaxing but a little ruined by people continuously opening the door to check for space. The food we had in the restaurant was lovely and plentiful. Our massages were brilliant and we felt totally relaxed after. We felt it was a good decision to have our treatment at the end of our experience as we were so chilled out that we didn't really want to get back into the pools abyway!

We me and my husband were very lucky to have a Christmas present - Massage 2 course lunch and use of the facilities with Robe Towel and Slippers.
First the Massage - absolutely gorgeous 50 minutes of pure heaven
Then up to the top open air pool with Jacuzzi on every now and again
Lunch next - gorgeous gorgeous - healthy served meal presented superbly
Down to the bottom lovely pool area with moving water all the time
Middle area - newly refurbished - Infra ray area, two steam rooms - a ice room (different) and a shower jet area, the bird noises did get on my nerves but still delightful
Back to the top to savour the Bath area looking at the church steeples
yes it got busier and busier - so get there as early as possible
Oh Yes we will be back - we do live 2 hours away so unfortunately not as often as we would like
Keep up the good work- lovely staff - very clean
