Unfortunately, the Banatyne Spa Bristol is just not a relaxing place because it is so busy (on a weekend at least). The therapy rooms are positioned right next to the gym, and gym and spin class users actually have to walk through the treatment room reception to get to their class - up to 25 or so people! So on the one hand you have the pan pipes relaxing music and the noise of gym friends chatting and stomping past you. The pool and jucuzzi area is trying to be all things to all people, so there are children and families swimming, with couples or groups relaxing, and it is just very busy overall. The jucuzzi is too small to fit everyone in during busy times. The same with the sauna. The treatments are good, and reasonable value. But I do grudge having to pay extra for the robe and slippers, and most spa days do include a light lunch, which this did not. Although classes are included, there are not many on a weekend. Overall, I would not return

An enjoyable and relaxing day. We managed two classes and swim /steam room /sauna in addition to our treatment. The restaurant OK but uninspiring. Some healthy home-made soup and fresh rolls would have been great, or nice cakes/ biscuits. But overall our day met our expectations.

I'm shocked with all the negative reviews online...maybe there is a different attitude with the regulars than the one-off visitors but I had a wonderful time! I booked a spa day for me & husband but he was ill so my dad came along. Staff from reception through to therapists were very friendly, accomodating and helpful. Becky, the massage therapist was wonderful and my dad and I, who suffer from bad backs, left feeling great! We unfortunately had to leave early but managed to get in the sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool before we left and if we had the time we would've visited the gym and some classes. We visited on a Sunday and was very busy clearly with regulars but I find that ok as it means the spa/facilties are very popular so I didn't find that discouraging. Lovely, clean, modern facilties throughout. I was very impressed and will be recommending to friends and family.

A good experience. The therapist was welcoming and the venue was appealing. The downside is that the tan did not last as long as other tans I have had. The tan is the venues own and not the common 'sienna'.

I bought a facial package for me and my boyfriend to go, as a Christmas present. Aftering reading these reviews, I had hoped they had sorted out the spa, but I was very wrong. Unfortunatley, the staff and the massage were the only good things about it. We had our treatment first which was lovely, the therapist was very friendly and the massage was nice. The "spa", however was a huge dissapointment. The swiming pool was in lanes and was being used by the members, who were very rude and made it un pleasant to use. We stayed at the corner of the slow lane talking and the members made us feel like we were doing something wrong, fair enough they pay for the serivce and are trying to do lengths but when you are expecting a spa day you do not expect to be doing lengths in a circuit with 6 or 7 other people. The jacuzzi was tiny and very full, we had to, wait 30 mins for anyone to get out. When we finally got in there, it was cramped enough but people still decided to get in and I had to sit with my legs cramped up as no one else seemed to care they were taking up lots of room. Very uncomfortable and awkwared situation, not a relaxing day as the website says. The steam room and sauna were tiny rooms in the changing room, again used by the members so we had to cramp up which wasnt nice. All in all, massage was nice but would never go again. I dont think the description of the voucher or on their website is at all correct and very misleading. If you are a member then the "spa" is probably lovely but as a spa day, very very dissapointing. Will be sticking to Bath spa!!

I treated my friend to a 'spa day' for her birthday but i found that Spa Day was a bit of a exaggeration. In the price we paid we got a half an hour massage, which was great, no complaints but after a brief swim and chat in the spa pool there wasnt much else to do. Also we purchased gowns to wear but didnt feel comfortable sitting in the reception where the cafe was located. The place was very busy with members who werent very friendly at all. Staff were friendly and helpful no complaints there.

I tried to book at Bristol's Bannatyne Spa on three seperate occasions but they had no availabilities!! The voucher was useless and basically ran out before an availabaility that I could attend came up.
Don't buy this if you can only go at weekends or during half terms or school holidays.
Waste of time, effort and money :(

I bought my mum, what was described as, a luxury pamper day at Bannatynes, Bristol. Much to our dissapointment we both felt that there was very little in the way of luxury or pampering. The changing rooms were rather busy with hardly any room for us to put our bags down / get changed. The whole pool was roped off into lanes whch made us feel unable to just relax in the pool without swimming lengths and the ambience of the place was far from luxurious or relaxing. There wasnt anywhere to chill out and relax in our robes other than in the restaurant which is at the entrance of the building so people are constantly coming in and out to use the gym and other facilities. The one hour treatments that we recieved were average, again the treatment rooms were very basic and far from luxurious, not even a glass of water available without going down to the bar! At the end of our treatment, but without success, the therapist tried very hard to sell us the very expensive products.

Easy to book and informative about your day with them. Facilities were clean and modern, good selection of classes. We loved the spa, very relaxing and great after a good work out. Our massages were good and performed by friending therapists.

This was our second visit to Bannatynes Bristol, and we wouldn't hesitate to go back again. It might not be the most luxurious spa location, but you can't beat it for a good value day of relaxation! The facilities (pool, spa-pool, sauna, steam room, changing & showers) are all perfectly acceptable (and, most impotantly, clean); the cafe is pleasant and good value; and the sensory spa treatments are fabulous. This visit we also took advantage of the free classes and did Zumba with a brilliant instructor!

The only criticism would be that the towels are a bit old and tired - not the end of the world but it would be an easy way of making the whole experience that little bit more luxurious.

We booked for a spa day and found the Birstol venue very disappointing, we were expecting relaxing surroundings and a place where we could relax and chill for the day. The spa at Bristol is possibly missed named as the facilities were aimed at the super fir and those wanting to get fit, the pool was just for swimming with the aim of fitness, there was no where aroud the pool to relax. The chairs were situtaed by reception and we personally did not want to lounge in dressing gowns around an area frequented by anyone entering the gym. the swimming pool was also being painted whist we were there which was a bit off putting, we had thought we would spend the day yhtere bu after our treatments which were excellent there was nothing else to do. Anyone expecting a relaxation pamper day will be disappointed because the place is basically a gym which we could have visited at home!

The day was very nice the staff were helpful and friendly. The only downside for me was the hardsell i got from the therapist to buy their products.
