The spa at the Randolph Hotel is lovely, when we arrived we were shown the way to the spa, reception in the spa very friendly and informative. Shown to the changing rooms and given a key for a locker; inside the locker a clean folded dressing gown, big towel and a pair of slippers. In the spa rooms there is a small Jacuzzi big enough for 2 adults, 4 steam rooms rocks, bio, aroma, an ice room and a shower with 3 different showering water sprays, a cold water drink. Treatment rooms were plush and comfy, Michael my massuere was excellent, he did a very firm massage which made me feel so relaxed and de-stressed, the facial was excellent too.Disappointing part of the spa there is nowhere to really relax and chill there were seats in the reception area but we felt a little odd sat in reception in our gowns and costumes, maybe another room needs to be allocated as a chilling room with chaise lounges in so you can chill and relax without worrying if your flashing too much thigh or boob.

I booked this day for a surprise birthday treat for my wife and was she surprised. We both had an amazing relaxing time. The staff were very helpful and informative.

Tranquil & Uplifting
My Wife & I celebrated our 25th Anniversary with a stay at the hotel which included a complimentary spa massage session as well as full use of the spa facilities. We opted for the 25 min neck & back massage. The spa had no pool (which was a shame) but the décor, ambiance and staff service was exemplary. The soothing music and sound of running waters put you in a tranquil mode , ready for the treatments. The rooms were comfortably furnished and the treatment specialists were informative, friendly and thoroughly professional. A very relaxing experience. The Jacuzzi , steam room, aromatherapy room, Ice room & saunas were clean and well equipped too. The area was small, so if 20 people showed up, it would have been very crowded - but there were only 3 or 4 people there when we arrived. Overall a recommended venue for hotel and spa experience.

Professional and Relaxing
My husband and I visited the Macdonald Randolph spa today for a birthday treat. The receptionist was very welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable.
We used the facilities and although not a huge spa with swimming pool facilities, the area was still very relaxing and felt like we had it to ourselves. Before our treatments we went for Champagne and cream tea which was served in the drawing room, a very grand room which was extremely relaxing and decorated beautifully.
We were called in for our treatments which we both fully enjoyed, the therapists were professional and knowledgeable and ensured our expectations were met to high standards.
The whole experience was excellent, the spa was clean and offered all the extras from robes, slippers and Elemis toiletries to use at no extra cost.
We left feeling relaxed and sad the experience was over. Thanks again!
