There’s so much to enjoy in the local area, including days out at the rightly popular Colchester Zoo.

5 star day!

Julie Jackson, Essex

We booked this as a girlie day for my daughters 30th birthday. Staff were friendly from start to finish. There was 5 of us and we had previously called the spa to confirm our booking and to ask if possible could we have our treatments together and after lunch. When we arrived it was already planned exactly how we wanted it. We booked the serenity package which includes a 25min facial and massage. We were all very happy with the treatments we received. One thing maybe we could comment on is there isn’t enough loungers around the pool/spa area but otherwise all of us said we would be returning.

Relax Day

Deborah Figgett, Romford Essex

Lovely relaxing day, great food as usual. Very attentive to needs in Massages. Good advice for future skin care. Thank you for a great day. See you again soon.
Only downside was they need more sun loungers to be available around the grounds.

A wonderful spa day!

Natasha Ewhe, Romford

My experience at Lifehouse Spa was fantastic! I booked the day as a special birthday treat for my sister and it didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly and helpful, the facilities top notch and the buffet lunch was delicious. My only regret is that I didn't book a longer treatment! Would definitely visit again and next time have an overnight stay.

“Very average, facilities poor”

May 18, 2020 - paddysmum84 - Bishops Stortford, United Kingdom

I stayed here for four days in March. The treatments were fine but the Pool area was far too crowded for its size. (Which incidentally is not big at all for an expensive ‘destination’ spa) Rooms...... Read more

Been in this Spa for two days with my Girlfriend. We chose to travel from London which is just 1 hour and 40 minutes for a relaxing weekend trying to avoid the stress of the city. Nice choice...... Read more
