Had an amazing day at the Gainsborough with our half day discovery package. Loved my hot stone sensory massage and my other half fell asleep during his!
Facilities were great and staff very helpful and attentive. My first ever Spa visit was one to remember and I think I may now be addicted. Thank you!

Really lovely staff felt very welcome, very experienced therapist that did an excellent treatment (I am a beauty therparist myself). Lovely relaxation room for after your treatment which was a lovely touch. Only disappoint was the pool facialities, very small pool with jacuzzi. Not somewhere you could spend a whole day but a great 'quarter' spa day!

Good Afternoon Jessica,
Thank you for your very kind review- We like to take pride in our staff.
We are a smaller Spa however, we like to think that this can be a plus as we are quieter.
I appreciate you taking the time to review us on Wahanda.

He soa bath wasn't working when we got there so that was a little disappointing! The raindrop massage couldn't have been more unique, it was really just an aromatherapy massage.

Hi Sarah,
I'm very sorry that the Jacuzzi tub was not working when you visited us.
Our Raindrop massage has specific movements that are designed to totally relax & soothe the body.
Maybe it wasn't the right massage for you at the time.
I hope this has not deterred you from visiting us again.
Kind Regards-
Amanda Coppock,

Small but perfectly formed...the hot stone massage was heavenly and nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff.
Can't wait to go back!

Great place and location. Very relaxing environment. My massage was the best massage I have had, really taking the time to work thoroughly on the areas that needed it, whilst checking I was OK.

Hi Karena,
Our Spa is set in the beautiful, Suffolk countryside & you really do feel like you are away from it all.

I enjoyed my first ever spa experience very much! Was very calming and relaxing and felt welcomed as soon as I arrived. I enjoyed my body treatment, which was a full body scrub. I was always covered in the right places so my dignity remained in tact, something I was little worried about considering I would have had to be mostly naked(!) I took full advantage of the swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam/sauna rooms. I now know what to expect next time and would definitely recommend this spa to anyone. Thank you!
