Just returned from 1 night at Dunkenhalgh. We do a lot of spa breaks in North of England and this really was one of the best. We turned up at 10.30 knowing that we could use spa facillities before the check. 1 hour in the gym soon passed before we spent time in the spa. Apart from the ice fountain everything was in good order and worked fine. Plenty of steam in steam rooms and heat in saunas. We had treatments pre booked that went very well, we felt nice. The evening meal was very tasty with lots of choice on the menu. The service was just right, not too fussy but there when needed. The room was big, clean and looked fresh with a decent TV and nice shower. Breakfast was excellent cereals, fruit, prunes, nuts, fry up, juice and unlike some hotels the coffee was good.

I bought the spa experience for me and my best friend as a Christmas present and it did not disappoint! Everybody was very warm and welcoming from the moment we got there! The treatments also did not disappoint in fact they were excellent the only downside was that we had our treatments late on in the afternoon so through the day we used the facilities like the swimming pool and thermal suite had some delicious lunch and then we wanted to spend an hour in the relaxation room which we were told on being shown round in the morning we could do but when we arrived to go in there were stopped and informed it was actually closed so we couldn’t use it! This was the only downside of the whole day.

The perfect get away!
We booked this stay very last minute.
We had booked a classic double room but was up graded to a privileged room. The spa area was very clean and the treatments were wonderful. All staff very friendly especially the staff in the dining area.
