The area
Address
Neighbourhood: West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

A little hard to find but what a great experience. My 3hrs flew by and I left there feeling deeply relaxed. A birthday present to myself. I'd definitely recommend a visit.

The Spa was difficult to find, we weren’t allowed to walk through the hotel and we’re sent on a bit of a trek to get there.
Once checked in, the swimming pool was nice, bright and modern. The thermal suite was disappointing, a lot of money when around half the experience rooms weren’t working. The outdoor pool was the best bit but I wouldn’t recommend until they sort out the basics.

Attended the spa with my friend yesterday . As usual wonderful therapist - highly rate Ellie - wonderful therapist, fantastic pressure and listened to what I was saying my concerns were . Very friendly and a lovely girl. Spa was clean and well kept , robes and slippers provided again ( was worried after reading a few reviews ) . Scorching day and the outside pool was wonderful. The spa rooms were lovely too , nice to see some updated which was needed! This would have been a 5/5 review however my biggest thing was that there was no option for coffee / lunch at the spa . This really was very disappointing. I have been a number of times before for spa days/ treatments and I have always had coffee / lunch so arriving at 9 am for a spa day expecting to get lunch with my friend was not great . Maybe something should have been emailed out prior to us attending ? Considering it is part of the Sheraton I am surprised that this is not something that can even be offered . The spa itself felt a little flat due to there not being the cafe I feel . All in all a nice place , clean and happy to see it back open

I used to love coming here to get some peace and quiet and have a swim. Unfortunately they recently made a bizarre decision to add in an extra kids session from 8.30 - 9.30 am every morning, in addition to the afternoon kids session. I have tried to accommodate this by going before or after these times but have found myself queuing to get in the pool. Even members with kids are totally fed up as they come here to get a bit of kid free time! The management seem to have forgotten they are a Spa (the clue is in the name) and what makes people go to a Spa. It is so strange as there are plenty of options for kids swimming in Edinburgh and the USP of One Spa was that it was peaceful and uncrowded. Sadly no longer.

Was a bit nervous about coming after reading some of the negative reviews recently but was very impressed. Have been to a few really good spas over the years and this is definitely up there. Wasn't too busy at all during our 9-12 session on Good Friday and we were able to enjoy all of the facilities without any of the rooms, pools etc being busy. The pool is a really good size with plenty of loungers, the outdoor hydrotherapy pool was fantastic and huge and all of the various heat rooms, experience showers etc were good. If there had been a cafe/restaurant available on site and if there was scope for full days to be spent there then we would definitely take advantage of this. The changing rooms are vast so no difficulties with lockers and there are lots of high end hair dryers, straighteners and lovely ESPA products available. Ample towels, towelling robes and flip flops available too.

This place did not disappoint!
The vast array of different rooms I’ve never experienced in spas before was great! And the cherry on top is certainly the outside hydrotherapy pool.
We must have spent two hours in here alone!
Such a lovely atmosphere throughout the spa and it wasn’t overcrowded or too busy.
It is certainly worth a visit!

Had the age defying facial, which was a.m.a.z.i.n.g!! I have no idea what possessed me to book on Easter Saturday though as I didn't have enough time to stay and use the thermal suite. I will definitely be going back... with girlfriends. Loved it. 😍

Fabulous Swedish massage by Ceryn. All the knots and stresses of life have been massaged away. Feeling as light as a feather and can’t wait to repeat the experience.

I was very disappointed with my recent trip to One Spa. The Spa is looking very tired and in need of some TLC. The coffee area isn’t available, no water stations and 3 of the steam rooms are closed and out of order. The spa still charged full price despite limited use of the facilities. It’s a shame as this has always been my go too spa for a special treat. Unfortunately I won’t be returning.
