Best Spa Massage

Eleanor Phillips, Leeds

Lovely setting and warm welcome. Had a massage by Debbie which was the best massage I have ever had in a spa like this. Afternoon tea was delicious and although there were other groups there we never felt it was busy. Lovely garden room too, and the thermal suite was delightful.

Relaxing and fun day

Margaret Scane, Buckley

The staff were welcoming and helpful and the facilities were modern, spotless and well laid out.
I took full advantage of the steam room, sauna, foot spa, swimming pool and relaxation room.
The Elemis facial was the best that I have experienced and the afternoon tea was both well-presented and tasty.
Overall a very pleasant day.
