Package good value for money

Clare Martin, Chelmsford

Booking experience very good and simple. Treatments that were included in the package were good I also paid extra for a Swedish body massage which was excellent. Hydrotherapy and pool area nice, would recommend using the salt inhalation room. No real WOW factor at Lifehouse which is a shame. Therapists and other staff polite but quite transactional in relation to service. Small things would make a difference i.e more water stations around the spa and include hot drinks in the relaxation area. The grounds of the spa are lovely and I am sure would be amazing in the summer.

Spa day

Iaura Smith, Wirksworth

A nice place overall, feels a little sterile and maybe needs some more thoughtful touches to decor. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, massage was lovely (if only 20 mins long!). Facilities were great, jacuzzi area is a lovely feature and unlimited towels were a nice touch. Extra treatments were very expensive and we hoped the offer of mini manicure, facials and pedicure would have been offered for around the £25 mark, their charges of £45 for a manicure seemed very pricey. Lunch was pretty dire, it used to be a lovely 2 course affair in the restaurant downstairs but instead it was a buffet in a cafe space with very average food, the soup and salads were ok but the main course was 3 reheated hot dishes and they just didn't work. No drinks were offered and dessert was pretty poor, dry scones and tiny pieces of chocolate cake. Overall we expected a much better lunch considering the price of the day. Nice facilities but will stick to Clarice house in Colchester.

Great Spa break but attention to detail needed

Lee Green, Ely

My wife and I stayed at Lifehouse Spa Hotel on the night of Saturday 12th April as part of my wife's birthday celebrations. We chose a 'LoveLife' Spa Break.

Spa Seekers website was great. Everything happened automatically and I would book through them again.

As for the hotel; we had a very relaxing time and enjoyed ourselves. The treatments were great, the spa itself was good (a little crowded but it was a Saturday), the food was fantastic, the grounds were stunning (landscaped gardens with Bluebell filled woodland and water-features but the room (15) was a bit of a let down.

There was a large stain on the desktop and on the desk chair. The room safe didn't work. The drawers in the bedside cabinet fell out when you used them. The chrome bezel from the shower tray waste was missing - very uncomfortable if you stood on the sharp plastic!

In summary a great venue, we would book again but I would hope that the manager has attended to the small things - they do count!

Spa Review

Esther Ashaju, Custom House

My husband and i had a fantastic time, staff were very experience and they demonstrated professionalism. We were greeted with respect and made to feel welcome. My husband who was initially unsure if to attend had never had Spa treatment commended on the impact of the treatment. He said he slept like a baby and he'll always recommend it to his friends.
