Spa days have access to the fully equipped gym and spa. The Jacuzzi in particular takes in the best of the city views, and there is also a sauna, steam room and six treatment rooms offering Elemis treatments from facials and massages to manicures and pedicures.

Lovely staff and excellent head and shoulder's massage. Also took a pilates class which was great. Shame about the dead flowers in reception and the flies on the windowsill in the spa room. More towels would have been appreciated. We were very lucky as we had the spa room to ourselves, but as it is very small, if other people had been there it would have been a bit crowded.

Lovely spa in the centre of Cambridge. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the treatments were to die for! Shame there is no pool, but the gym facilities were very good.
Will be returning when my friend comes to visit.

Really lovely spa with excellent staff and the treatments were great. The only downside was our two treatments were slightly too spaced out.

For the price - we may have stayed in London and had a massage locally, and benefitted from an appropriate environment. Staff while sweet, appeared to be trainees? Not wiping oil off when finished? Not having spa shoes/slippers on hand with the robe?The tone of the spa is all wrong - allowing other guests to speak on their mobile phones on speak phone mode? Some odd practices, i.e. guests take used towels/robes through to the main reception/entrance where the bin is located? The whole place just does not feel like a spa, and I would definitely not recommend spending money on it. Feels 'studenty' - should offer a student pricing.

The facial and massage were both lovely in the cosy treatment room and the staff were great too- very welcoming. The jacuzzi overlooking the river was lovely, and sauna and steam room were nice too. The spa is quite small but luckily it wasn't busy when I went. There is no pool but that wasn't a problem for us either. This was a perfect relaxation break ( we went from 11-2.30 but I'm not sure that there is enough to spend a full day there). There is a gym on site but I didn't use this, and I don't know if it's included anyway! Great central location in Cambridge and I definately left feeling relaxed and revived. Would recommend :)

I had a lovely day at the spa. I had a friendly welcome and explained and helped with everything. Even though it was Boxing Day it was well staffed. I was given slippers, robe, towel and herbal tea on arrival.
Rachael gave me a fantastic Swedish massage and I have recommended her to others. Perfect pressure, thorough and soothing and she was very friendly.
No pool but a great hot tub overlooking the river plus a steam and sauna. The gym is very modern and well kept too
It's not ott like some spas where you start feeling uncomfortable. It's split over several floors so you must be ok with stairs. Only soap in the showers so you need to take shampoo, moisturiser etc. They should tell you that before you arrive but I was prepared and left feeling fab!

Very attentive staff who gave a wonderful half hour massage (neck,shoulder and back). The rooms are very intimate and the ambience is first rate. The spa facilities are very clean and the location is in a wonderful and convenient part of Cambridge.
