I loved the pool complex, and the relaxation room where we had our lunch, very kindly delivered by the spa staff. They were very attentive, profession and friendly. The towels were a little small, and miy first towel was threadbare. Also, there were no slippers on the day I visited. The treatment was lovely. I would recommend this spa to friends, but feel you should probably invest in some new towels!

I booked a spa day and exercise class at holding for my friends birthday. The day was amazing from start to finish. 2 things that let it down were trying to book the exercise class which literally took 10 attempts as staff were really useless and the building in which the sports class was held was ancient and crumbling. The class itself which was a 3 in 1 workout was great. The building in which the spa and pool is in was lovely and we spent a few hours using the pool and relax rooms which made my skin super soft. We then had a delicious lunch which was also included and was in a private little room. We then had our treatments and it was like being on cloud 9. Amazing therapist who made the whole experience so wonderful. My friend was equally as happy and we are planning our next trip there soon. Would definitely recommend.

Really good value - shame one of the showers by the sauna/steam area wasn't working. The lunch options aren't great, but the facial I had and the massage my partner had were both very good. Good selection of steam and sauna rooms - not too crowded.

I enjoy regular back massages at The Retreat.

It's sometimes difficult to get appointments - guess that's a good sign, it must be popular!

Only negative that could be improved - its very frustrating when you telephone to make bookings. If few staff are in, you can ring ten times in one day and still not speak to anyone and sometimes they never call back. Maybe a staffing issue or maybe the answering machine is faulty?

The spa centre offers many lovely packages and the staff make it a very enjoyable and relaxing time. The choice of spas and the pool make it a nice place to spend time and replenish your energies

I am so pleased I stumbled across this Spa. It is a real hidden gem the staff are so accommodating and you feel like you are the only people in the Spa.
The Lunch was very nice as was the relaxation area and the Tranquillity Spa day that we booked was very relaxing.
I will be coming back again with More friends .

I purchased this day to relax on my birthday and I have to say that the whole experience was very relaxing. I can't wait to bring a few girlfriends here, or maybe I'll just keep it as my secret retreat!

The staff couldn't do enough and were really friendly.
The facilities were great and the price we paid well worth it.
It is a little hidden away but will definitely be going again...!
