Great facial. The therapist was very knowledgable about the products and helped advise me on the best products to use. She also gave me some free samples to try.

Really like the floatarium spa in general, have been several times for a Brazilian wax. On my most recent visit the wax was ok but not as thorough, efficient and quick as I would like. As with most places, the results vary and very much depend on which therapist is performing your treatment. That said, I haven't found anywhere in Edinburgh I prefer, the staff are very friendly and the salon is very welcoming.

Great service as always from the Floatarium but could do with more colours to choose from for shellac/gel nails.
Although the service is really good and everyone is always really friendly, it is a little pricey compared to some others out there now with a wider range of colours.

Nice to hear you enjoyed your experience.
We have 198 different colours in gel polish to choose from, Cnd vinylux we have 57 colours out of a possible 67 that are produced and a whopping 213 regular polish variants. We are happy to advise on best suited colour match for skin tone or fabric matching- just ask :)

Local venue with great range of treatments on offer and relaxing ambience. Waxing was more bearable than previous experiences - would highly recommend Kirstie.

I had a shellac manicure. The painting of the nails was okay but I didn't receive much of a manicure. I don't think it was worth £30.

We are sorry you seemed a little disappointed on our service. The mini manicure is a file and polish service and the price paid included removal.

Great service and really friendly staff. could do with either expanding range of colours or reducing price a little as other salons with same variety are more competitively priced.

Unfortunately I feel I have to write a negative review. My first visit to the salon, while I sat waiting I couldnt help notice the lack of cleanliness all around the area. The nail bar was covered in dust from nail filling there was clipped nails on the floor, it look very unprofessional. The dermalogica display was dirty with dust all under the display and behind the desk was full of messy paperwork with a waste bin full of tissues and stuff. Not what you want to see really. The treatment room I was in was very rundown, there was wax stains all over the floor and the skirtings were very old and looked in need of a good clean. The toilets were much the same very old and I couldnt help but notice the plug sockets which were grubby and old, it made me feel a bit grubby myself! I didnt want to stand on the floor in my bare feet. This salon is in need of a complete makeover and the cleanliness leaves something to be desired. I really didnt believe the posters stating they had won an award, I really wonder how that happened. The treatment I had was okay and the girl was polite, however i don't think I'll be back. I know two other people who have been recently and all had the same opinion, its a shame really as its been there for a long time.

I was given a voucher for Christmas and used it to book the 20/20/20. The whole experience was disappointing.

The welcome was less than effusive - not even a smile. The receptionist didn't know what time noon was! The pixellated printed-out posters about the spa's recent award looked unprofessional, and they're the first thing you see. I asked to use the bathroom before my treatment and it looked really run-down, with a stained toilet bowl, grubby grouting and bits missing from the door.

The treatment itself (in a cramped room with a bed covered in doctor's office paper towel as well as cotton towels - can they not spare fresh towels for each client?) was very blah. I told the therapist I had knots in my shoulders but she didn't even try to work them out - I came out feeling just as tense as I had going in! I was intrigued as to what the 'arm smoothie' would be but it was just an arm massage with unscented oil - why not just call it that? Throughout the treatment I could hear the spa phone ringing, crockery clattering and people chatting. The treatment was meant to last 60 minutes (hence the name 20/20/20) but it was only 50 minutes.

My husband who had a full body massage at the same time wasn't impressed either. Neither of us would go back.
