Amazing spa day and afternoon tea! Such a lovely day, had a great massage and facial. Staff were so friendly and helpful. So relaxing and a delicious afternoon tea. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!

Spa Treat for my birthday.
Five Lakes is such an amazing location if you want to feel pampered and relaxed. I bought a package through SpaSeekers, mini facial, mini pedicure and back/shoulder/neck massage and afternoon tea was also included! I want to thank Laura at Five Lakes who looked after me I gave me my treatments, always making me feel comfortable and explaining her steps along the way such as telling me what treatments she used for my face and what area she would work best on for my massage! The relaxation room was nice, cosy and warm the perfect way to chill out before the treatments! All the staff I came across were friendly and helpful and all of the facilities were fresh and clean, and I was especially happy with them providing the robe, towel and slippers! The afternoon tea was lovely too, everything was full of flavour and I didn’t have to wait long to be served. I had such a great time here, I will defo be returning and I have non stop been telling my friends and family about Five Lakes Resort!
