Why do you like it?
The facilities are in excellent condition and set this spa apart from a lot of others. The staff are friendly, helpful, professional and knowledgeable, and you get a guided tour of the facilities as part of your welcome, which sets the tone for a relaxing and very peaceful experience.
There are healthy dining options upstairs in the grill restaurant.
Make sure you allow yourself time to enjoy the Jacuzzis, sauna and indoor pool.
They use and are stockists of Elemis products, so treat yourself to some take- away goodies.
Children under 16 are not allowed to use the spa so you can be sure of a peaceful visit.
The pool area is pretty big but they only have two treatment rooms so advance booking is advisable.
