A super spot and fantastic staff, all of whom were extremely polite, helpful and charming. The treatments were fantastic and the only thing that was below par was the facilities, which were few and all a little cramped. However, given the location of the hotel and the premium on space in Mayfair it is perhaps not surprising and the general decor and ambience of the place more than made up for it. Final plus was that we found a parking spot just around the corner on Down Street very easily.

Do not be fooled by the word 'spa'. The nail treatment area is a hallway with cracked walls, no windows (basement), poor light, and an old rug in the middle. No music. Stuffy atmosphere.

The positions that the therapist has to take to provide the pedicure service are circus-like: you're sat on an old sofa, and her on a chair in front of you. A towel on the carpet, and there we go. No feet soaking, no pedicure done. At some point the therapist kneels on the floor to get that nail polish applied - that can't be in any way spa-like, not to mention comfortable. The manicure tables are filthy.

I got the Gelish. Ended up with top coat all over my toe. Plus a big cut under the toe nail because of the therapist filing too hard. There is no proper manicure done, it's more of a nail polish application, without much nail care prior to it. My cuticles are very much like they were before the appointment.

Very disappointed, will never go back there again.

I was looking for a present for my other half and booked Moroccan Rose Ritual for two - very happy with my choice. Everything was spot on. Very welcoming staff, very clean, treatment was for two hours - very happy with. We also used spa facilities - very happy with our Spa day. Drinking water and spa robes, towels and slippers were provided. I will recommend anyone who is looking for a couple experience - just perfect present. I would love to thank those who made our day so enjoyable.

My eyelash extensions were very patiently applied and took just under two hours. My quiet time to relax was very much respected - we had a fair balance of chat and silence for me to just close my eyes and relax. The extensions are exactly what I asked for - a very natural look and the Athenaeum Spa was perfect for what I wanted. Definitely coming back here for my infills (especially with the loyalty card).

Treatments were fine but the waiting area and changing rooms were crowded to an unpleasant degree spoiling the post massage relaxation by having to fight for space to shower and change.

Ok experience but bean bag was not that comfortable for pregnant women. Would probably choose a different massage position next time.

Great deal! The exfoliation is rough but leaves your skin feeling great and the facial was really enjoyable and refreshing. There are 2 jacuzzis, 1 steam room and 1 sauna for afterwards though the installations are quite small and the changing room only has 1 shower.

Visited the spa for a gel manicure and pedicure. The manicure was good . However I was left very disappointed with the pedicure which was no more than a polish change. It was explained to me that this was because I was having gellish on my feet, however this was not made clear on booking or on arrival to the spa. I would not have booked this service if I know this was the case, as the reason for me booking the treatment was because I wanted a pedicure.

value for money.
time keeping can be improved. I was told to arrive 10min before the treatment to choose color before hand but I waited for more than 15min then eventually been asked to choose the color. so didn't really needed to arrive early. maintenance man was working on air-con in middle of relaxation room so wasn't reaxed feel at all. spa is doing at of offer at moment so staffs are far too busy. treatment itself were excellent finish and staffs were all friendly.
