Relaxing

Amazing spa day!

Sarah Grosscurth, Warrington

Extremely easy booking experience with SpaSeekers, confirmation emails came through immediately and then the spa contacted me two days later regarding my treatments. The spa itself was amazing, 5*. It was very clean, well laid out and plenty of options for steam/saunas. We had the back massage and body scrub and it was phenomenal, the rooms are perfect: comfy and great mood lighting/music. The ladies who did the massages talked us through everything and made us feel at home. Would definitely look too book here again!

Amazing day

Telizer Shambare, Bury

I went to this spa with my friend. We had such an amazing day. We arrived early so we were able to use other facilities such as sauna, swimming pool.
I had my massage with Karen in room one l think. She was so nice, she gave me feedback of my body tensions after the treatments. I felt so refreshed and l look forward to come back again.
I would recommend this place to anyone. You will love it. We had afternoon tea after which was delicious, l wish we had booked to stay overnight because we did want to leave the place.
All the staff are jovial and eager to help.

Perfect pampering experience!

Karen Thornton, Manchester

The booking experience was very easy and simple for someone who is not very technically-minded! The massage I booked for my sister and myself was heaven! I didn't want it to end.The food was sublime, my sister was still talking about it weeks later! The food was perfectly cooked and all the staff from reception to waiters were impeccably polite, they couldn't do enough for us! The spa was spotless, smelt wonderful and was very peaceful and relaxing. We hated having to leave, we will most definitely be booking again! My favourite part was the relaxing massage, my sister loved the food and I think we will be bringing our daughters next time!

Relaxing day together

Calli Tabeart, Winsford

My partner and I have stressful jobs and it was a lovely treat for us both. Staff are friendly and helpful, the facilities are all to a high standard and the treatments were super. We were asked on arrival if we would like the duel treatment room, so got to enjoy our massages together. Treatments felt very relaxing and cream tea was delicious, although having it in the bar wearing robe and slippers felt a little odd. Overall a great way to unwind!
