The spa treatment was so relaxing. The staff were so courteous and used my name when talking to me. It was lovely to have a relaxing room to go to after a massage.

A most pleasant experience soaking away a days driving under the winter clear sky. Pool temperatures to suit all. Suspect it could get very crowded but not so when we were there

Was my #1 thing to try but came up very short. Overly expensive. Very crowded. No lockers. Needed to be cleaned. Would benefit from more adult only pools as kids make the experience less than relaxing as they play in the pools.More
