The Forest Mere experience is unlike any other and we believe it will leave you feeling peaceful and energised. Seeing Forest Mere for the first time is a breathtaking experience. Beautiful, mysterious woodland leads you to a clearing where the magnificent lake frames the Mansion House. Forest Mere blends enchanting grounds with the latest spa and beauty facilities.

Bathe in the UK’s first thalassotherapy pool, take a swim in the 25-metre pool or rejuvenate with mud treatments in the twilight Rasul Chamber. Forest Mere also holds an Alternative Health Clinic where guests can experience a healing circle, and therapies from Reiki to Graphology.

Summertime unveils a new dimension to Forest Mere with its outdoor heated pool and tennis court. Take in the breathtaking scenery with guided walks and rambles. Or take in the beautiful views from the Terrace Café overlooking the lake.

The day started off badly. This was a treat for my daughter and I to spend some quality time together before she left for a 15 month travel tour. I had followed the Last Minute.com instructions and contacted the resort to book our treatments etc so assumed everything was in good order. When we arrived, we were told that what we were expecting had not been booked for us by Last minute.com. We had to waste a lot of time talking to the reception staff and then talking to the therapists reception before we could get our booking organised properly. By the time we got downstairs to have our breakfast there was almost nothing left but a couple of tiny tasteless muffins and a small amount of melon. I walked to the restaurant to ask for some more provisions and was told someone was due to restock everything in a couple of minutes. 10 minutes later someone appeared and cleared away dirty crockery but no food arrived - at that point we gave up! We decided to have a positive attitude and enjoyed the rest of the day but the early part was really spoiled.
We had Thalassotherapy which was great. The pool is lovely but inaccessible when aqua takes place - I can see no reason why the whole pool area is used. We both enjoyed our 25 minute treatments and had a nice lunch - again, the restaurant seems disorganised as some of the food only became available at the end of our allocated dining time.

Areas of spa need to be given lick of paint. No towels (but showers) in ladies changing room opposite retail shop. Lack of cups at water stations. Had to ask for cutlery at lunch. However my Massage therapist was very good.

Venue and staff were very nice and the Wahanda deal made the spa day very good value. Thelassotherapy was a disappointment and Facial brought my skin up using champneys products and after advising therapist I had sensitive skin.

Nice day but spa is a bit tired. Also very few places to sit and relax, especially by the pool

If you want to totally relax with comfy chairs and log fires this is the place for you. The buffet lunch is really good and the thalassotherapy has to be experienced more than once. The only bit of the whole experience that let it down for me was the steam room in the ladies changing room which was just a bit basic. An amazing place to go and relax or if you prefer to be active more than enough to keep you happy for your stay.

Staff very friendly. Thalassotherapy pool was tired, rusty spots and ceiling needed decorating. Tiles in changing areas/showers tired and black mould in grouting. Very disappointing lunch, salad not very fresh. Wraps with Chinese filling but with Mexican dressings. Hair on the brocolli. Afternoon tea was lovely but confusion as to wether it was included in the luxury spa day. I had to show the staff the confirmation e-mail to prove it was. Robes a bit tired. Massage ok but not the best I've had, therapist talked too much, lovely lady but not very relaxing. Wouldn't go back in a hurry for the price I paid. Daughter's birthday so disappointed.

Unfortunately we did not find Champneys to be well-organised. When we arrived there was no record of our booking and it took well over 30 mins for staff to sort out the matter. Although we were offered a complimentary drink while we waited for the mix-up to be resolved it didn't really make up for the 45 minutes that we wasted sitting around. The robes only seemed to come in extra large and they had run out of flip flops - good job we brought our own. This is the only Spa that we have been to where we were not asked anything about our medical history - which we found rather remiss. As Champneys is a health farm the food was strictly low fat, low sugar, low salt - so if you are looking for a tasty lunch I suggest you head for a hotel spa rather than this. There are too few beds around the pool to relax on and as we went as a couple we were disappointed not to be able to share the steam room. On the good side - the pool is fantastic and the Thalassotherapy is not to be missed.

Arriving in the beautiful surroundings is a treat in itself. Helpful friendly staff greet you and you are shown all around. The Thalassotherapy experience is not to be missed. Lunch was very enjoyable with good choices and quality food available. A whole host of different exercise classes are on offer throughout the day, every day. Our Spa Day came to an end and we reluctantly drove away but know we will be back in the very near future.

My friend and I had a lovely day at Champneys and were very impressed with the facilities. It is slightly confusing when you first visit and we got confused over the changing rooms and later discovered a bigger and more luxurious changing room. Our treatments were great and 5 days later I can still feel a difference.

Friendly professional staff. Fantastic food. Spa and pool facilities could do with a lick of paint, also some tiles could do with a good clean/repair. But overall a lovely treat for my husband's birthday.

Good day. Staff very helpful. Steam room wasn't very steamy, but swimming pool good. Would have liked more luxury in the showers.
