Decided to surprise my wife to a spa day as I’ve never been to one.
I looked within the Yorkshire region and was undecided between Swinton Park and Rudding park.
Thankfully I decided to book with Swinton Park and will never look back.
From entering the grounds to parking up and entering the reception was breath-taking. The service was outstanding, the changing rooms were immaculate. The pool area, saunas, steam rooms, hot tubs were amazing with an amazing relaxing atmosphere.
We both then had full body massages which were amazing from start to finish.
Then to finish our perfect day we dined at the terrace which was included within our package, the food was absolutely amazing, out of this world, the chefs deserve so much credit and the service was very efficient with very polite waiters.
Cannot wait to book again!

I booked a mini spa day through SpaSeekers for my sisters 30th birthday as a special surprise, it was absolutely stunning from start to finish. The place is beyond beautiful, the staff were lovely and so helpful, the treatment was a dream. We all had the massage and the girls were really lovely. We had Prosecco by the pool in the sunshine and a delicious afternoon tea on the terrace. It felt like a full day of luxury and we can't wait to be able to come again!! Thank you! SpaSeekers also made it very easy to find a great deal and booking was no problem at all! X

My best spa experience to date.
The design of the spa and its amenities are excellent, and the surrounding estate is beautiful. There is a good sized indoor pool and an outdoor pool, steam rooms, saunas, massage pool and hot tub. Clients at the spa also have access to a gym, and to fitness classes. The whole day was a delight, from the welcome through to the treatment (deep-tissue full body massage. Lunch was excellent and all the facilities are so spacious and well thought out that access to everything is very easy. Staff are polite, friendly and always ready to help. My best spa experience to date and I will certainly be returning.

Found this deal online and so glad I did. From the minute we arrived we were treated like royalty x. Didn't arrive till 12.00, lunch booked for 12.30 in ' 'the terrace' back to hotel as said room might be ready early. It wasn't but after sorting out food for evening meal, we headed back to spa. Spent rest of afternoon in the pools and therapy rooms. Had evening meal in Samuals dinning room which was spectacular. Food was amazing and plentiful. All staff were very friendly and made our visit extra special. Next morning after breakfast we booked out and headed over to the spa for our treatments as it was busy the day before. Had lovely relaxing back massage and relaxed afterwards on hot water beds x. Bit disappointed we couldn't go back in the spa ( tip for the future, book spa day for next day). We will be back as loved every minute of it and recommend it highly x

The first thing you notice about Swinton Park is the spectacular building itself. It was like walking into a historic castle. The staff were very friendly and the grounds are gorgeous, although for me the star of the whole show was the spa. I was feeling really stressed out when I arrived but that didn’t last long at all. One day I plan to come back for a whole week rather than just the day.
