A friend of mine booked me in to the spa as a birthday treat, and not really being into massages I was almost unbothered to go. Anyway, I am glad I did. From past massages and experiences, the massage I experienced at River Wellbeing was beyond my expectations. The therapist made me feel extremely comfortable and I was in a back room which was quiet and luxurious. In the past when I have gone to a spa, the treatment rooms are often off a corridor wihch means you can hear people coming and going. This experience was the total opposite. At the beginning of the treatment the therapist told me which oils she was going to use, and then at the end of the 60 minute massage she left me to adjust my mind back to reality. In my opinion this was something I really noticed, as often after a massage I have been hurried off the bed in time for the next person.
The massage was incredibly relaxing, the staff were warm, polite and proffessional, the decor reminded me of a far away retreat and the hotel itself was very nice.
