Went there for a foot scrub, which was ok. The lady at reception was nice, the therapist ok. The place is a little run down, but there is a another area downstairs which I didn't see, maybe that is nicer. Colour was included, which was nice. Overall it was ok for the price I paid, but wouldn't go back and pay the full price.

Quite expensive for how long it takes but I did come away with a very good pedicure and in good time so I could get it done on my lunch break. Cucumba is more about quick good treatments than long luxury pampering.

One of my favourites. Always friendly & professional. I did the party pamper package & love the flexibility in treatment options. The tokens is a great was to mix it up each time & cater for everyone :)

The 3 beauty treats deal sounded like a good deal, but in the end don't feel it was. I think the experience you have depends on the staff member you get - some were very good and other less so. Everyone was friendly, but the services didn't feel very professional.

I had a pick and mix special and everything about the service was spot on - speedy, efficient, friendly and personal service. Ambience could be improved and place could do with a lick of paint, otherwise perfect.

Really great value for money. The service was speedy and it was a nice, clean salon. I had my eyebrows tinted and the colour didn't last as long as previous tints I've had, but I would still return for future appointments here.

Thank You for your feedback. You say relaxing and nice people - we like to think so. However you didnt like the atmosphere or the products used. We would love to hear more from you about how we an improve on these. Please feel free to do so anonymously as its feedback from people like you that really help us to improve on the services we provide. We use Demalogica for facials and Essie/Seche for manicures/pedicures and these are market leaders in their field but we are always open to learning about new alternatives so please do share. Our therapists usually tries to read the mood of their clients to know whether to be chatty, respectfully quiet or to fully explain what they are doing. The best person to decide this is YOU so apologies if she did not ask you your preference. We really look forward to hearing from you on how we can do better next time. Regards.....

Came here to enjoy a bit of me time on my birthday. Perfect start to the day! Staff was attentive and the three treatments I received were all done at a high standard. Will be back.

The therapist had very strong hands so the foot massage was lovely. The place could have had a caller more relaxing air instead of doing it on a chair by the entrance with lots of bright light.

Thanks for such a lovely review. I assume you had the dry pedicure? There is only 1 station for this treatment which is by the front (lots of deadskin removed so good ventilation important) but i have fedback to the team that if a client wants a massage after their dry pedicure they should be given the option to move stations to somewhere more relaxing. Good point and much appreciated. Please do make yourself known to us when you are next in so that we can treat you to the same foot massage but somewhere more relaxing... Regards.......

Was seen in a timely manner, without delays. She was friendly but not too talkative, (which I liked) and really fast. Have been in the saloon before so knew exactly what I expected.

Thanks Lucia - really appreciate the feedback. As you have been here before we would love to hear from you on how we can improve on the 3 stars we scored. please feel free to do so anonymously or directly or via email polandst@cucumba.co.uk. We especially love that despite our not getting it completely right, you have given us another chance, tried us again and are very open and honest about what you like/ don't like. We would love the opportunity to meet or exceed your expectations and can only do this is we know what they are or what you would like to see more/less of from us. Look forward to hearing from you......Regards

It was a great experience although i found the facial a bit superficial. The therapist was very nice and explained every step of the way. The neck massage was super relaxing - I was afraid I would fall asleep (which i think I did....)
