Lovely friendly service by very competent staff. I had a nice relaxing time and a lovely chat with Ali who was my therapist that day. All in all a good service for a good price and I love my new gel toes :)

Great treatment but instructions need to be clear on location. My appt was at Willen and when I got there they told me it was Abbey Hill so had to sprint across town. Worth it though.

First time having the treatment. Was ok but a bit of explanation about it all would have helped so I knew the benefits. tried as recommended by a friend.

Fantastic service again - lovely staff and I'm really pleased with the results. The only down side is that you have to pay to park but it's out of their control!

Well - first things first. If you're booking this as a spa day - don't. It isn't a day spa, and it can't masquerade as one either. Yes it has beauticians and treatment rooms, and it's attached to a large gym (maybe LA Fitness) where you can use the pool, steam and sauna room. The pool, steam and sauna are nice and clean but there is nowhere to lounge around like at a usual spa. You're either using the facilities, or in the treatment rooms (not adjacent to each other, so you have to travel through reception in your robe to get from A to B). Changing rooms are very gym-esque, functional but no products, and the showers are a bit grotty. In between our treatments we actually ended up leaving the spa and getting something to eat next door, as well as wandering around the lake.

That said, if you wanted to come here for a massage, it was lovely. The facial I wasn't impressed with, it was more of a facial massage, no steam, no extraction, no proper mask. My skin is normally receptive to a facial, but this made me breakout almost instantly. The staff were friendly though for the most part.

Thank you for your feedback and we were glad you enjoyed the massage.
We do pride ourselves in specialised quality treatments. The package you purchased was a Bliss Retreat which is a relaxing massage and facial, which is why no steam/extraction was carried out on this 30 minute facial. Usually this would be done on our hour facials as this usually takes 30 minutes by itself.
We were surprised to hear you had a reaction to our products as we only use professional skin care products, which are Dermalogica and Environ. With regards to the Spa we do have loungers available for your use, I will need to look into this further this end as too why there were none available on your visit.
I appreciate the time taken to leave your review and have taken on board all your comments.

disappointed not to have afternoon tea that was booked. Massage room was not warm enough, didn't have any fragranced oils burning and the massage was too rough, not relaxing.

Thank you for your review , unsure who you are and therefore unable to call you to discuss your booking.
Afternoon tea is available at our site at the Mercure Hotel , this must be booked direct with them.
If the room was too cold then I wish you would have said at the time as we could have adjusted the temperature at the time , it quickly heats up. With regards to your massage , do you mean too deep in to the muscles? unsure what massage you booked as no name but perhaps book a aromatherapy massage next time or ask the therapist to adjust the pressure. Due to heath & Safety unfortunetly we are unable to have oil burning in the room .

Our 2nd visit, as our first was very good - however we were disappointed this time. Our afternoon tea was not able - no longer doing this even thou we had booked it, the room was not warm enough and didn't smell of anything -where as before it had been warm and inviting with a wonderful relaxing fragrance oil burning. also my friend didn't receive the treatment she booked - and my massage was rather rough and not relaxing. Disappointed - wont return.

Whole heartedly disappointed with my day at this spa. 4 of us booked a 'bliss retreat day' hoping for a day of relaxation and this was certainly far from that!! Apart from the treatment rooms upstairs there were no available spa-specific facilities such as a relaxation room or anywhere to sit and eat our cream tea etc.The pool was out of use which left us no where else to go. After complaining, the two options we were given was to either sit by the broken pool on plastic chairs, or to sit on the floor of the corridor where the treatment rooms were based.
We chose the corridor as the pool was extremely hot and ended up having to eat our cream tea on the floor where staff and other customers kept having to step over us.
We were told that the gym (where this spa is based) was currently changing over management and that there was nothing they could do! Quite frankly, the customer service we received was appalling and the manager did not seem to care that we were unhappy. We spent the whole day feeling very unwelcome and a burden to the staff. We understand that the gym was undergoing change, but why accept people for the spa days if you cannot accommodate them? And why were we not told this when we booked??

The only upside to this day was the 2 half an hour treatments we received, which were brilliant. Such a shame that everything else ruined our day. Although I did think it was worrying that we didn't have to fill out any health check forms before our treatments.

I recommend this place for the treatments but you might leave as angry as me.

Thank you Hannah for your review, as we explained when you arrived unfortunetely the pool was closed due to Health & Safety levels as the Chlorine levels where too high, we did offer you to come back another day but you declined. The seating area you talk about is our Bean Bag area which clients like to relax on before & after treatments I cannot remember seeing you sitting actually on the floor and would not expect anyone to do. We are glad you enjoyed your treatments .

Thanks for your reply. We definitely did not get an offer to come back another day, that is quite simply a lie. We would not have been as frustrated at the situation if this had been the case. Also you did not explain about the chlorine levels when we arrived, we only knew about this by the signs round the pool. Okay, yes, we were sitting on bean bags, about 2cm off the floor - we were still in the middle of a corridor where other staff and customers had to step over us.
