Lovely experience

Julie Copley , North Yorkshire

A Christmas treat for my husband and myself ... totally glad we did it as we thoroughly enjoyed the experience... spa treatments were fabulous, staff were all pleasant, polite, helpful, respectful at all times. Our room was comfortable, overlooking the lake ... dinner and breakfast were both excellent ... if I had to make a negative comment about our experience it would be the check in time of 3pm is too late and parking is rather steep - but otherwise we loved every minute.

Couples Spa day

Joanne Boyd, Workington

Fantastic overnight stay on 27th December and an upgraded lake view room when we arrived. SpaSeekers were easy to use and we got a fab deal, saving a few hundred pounds on the direct price with hotel. Would recommend using SpaSeekers and will use them again. Hotel was beautiful, breakfast was good with an array of foods but a little expensive for drinks and although the parking is £20 which we used it was hassle free although a bit steep, but Bowness is terribly expensive for parking anyway.

The perfect place for the perfect break!

Ryan Halliwell, Cheshire

We visited the Macdonald Old England for a relaxing pre-Christmas break and were not disappointed. Booking through SpaSeekers (for the first time) was smooth, problem-free and all questions and queries were answered as soon as they arose. Throughout our stay the hotel staff were so helpful and polite, our treatments, evening meal and breakfast lived up to expectation and the entire break was a real pleasure. The location was absolutely perfect and Bowness was such a delightful place but SpaSeekers and Macdonald were key to making our weekend so amazing.

Fabulous Day

Jayne Hardcastle, North Yorkshire

Booked for my partners 50th Birthday celebrations. Excellent facilities, friendly, welcoming staff. Very well organized. Massage was brilliant. Afternoon tea was plentiful and the view over the lake was breath taking. Would recommend to family and friends.

Fantastic experience

Laura, Northumberland

We visited the spa on our 10th wedding anniversary prior to renewing our vows, we both had a back, shoulder and neck massage and a file and polish, followed by cream tea in the lounge overlooking Lake Windermere. The treatments were amazing with lovely therapists and the cream tea was delicious! Definitely worth the money!
