The Fairmont Spa is the best spa I have visited. Very welcoming, great facilities and had a wonderful massage.

Lovely relaxing afternoon
We had the refresh spa experience. We enjoyed full use of the facilities before each having a 35 minute treatment. I had an express facial which was a lovely treat. We then topped off the experience with an indulgent afternoon tea. A fantastic way to relax with my Mum and Sister. Highly recommended 👌

Time out to relax
Easy to book and great information prior to arrival. Lovely surroundings, staff were excellent and very welcoming. Spa staff and hotel staff were friendly and excellent customer service. The spa treatments were fantastic and effective.
The only negative was we did not get a glass of Prosecco on arrival, not sure if this was due to COVID restrictions but would have added to our treat day.
Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning.

Dont book in school holidays!!
We booked the Relax Spa day and our treatments were fantastic. The spa is lovely and relaxing. However the facilities were not great and would prevent me from booking again (at the weekends or school holidays). The pool was not relaxing - it was over crowded, there was no loungers for those on spa days as families in the pool used them to store lunch boxes, toys and towels. The Jacuzzi was full most of the afternoon of small children preventing other people on spa days to use. I cannot fault our treatments and I understand it is a hotel therefore there will be families however for the price of the spa day I would recommend to go else where where the facilities are more relaxing.
