“Just Fabulous”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Jo is one of the most dedicated therapists I have ever come across. Her team are wonderful too. Nothing is ever a problem for them. I am a hotelier (always in a hurry) and Jo takes care of my nail extensions and has done so for many years. When you turn into the driveway of Bindon Abbey a wonderful feeling of relaxation envelopes you. You are greeted extremely professionally and politely. The treatment rooms are gorgeous and the relaxation room is just sublime. You won't want to leave. I am always invited to have a lovely coffee and to sample beautiful little cakes that I can never resist. I hope to be returning to Bindon Abbey on a very regular basis. I am often complimented on my hands and it is all down to Jo's hard work. 5 Star treatment in a 5 star place by 5 Star Staff.

I've just died and gone to heaven. Thank you Jo for the fabulous lava shell massage. This is the most brilliant treatment I have ever experienced. All the aches and pains are now just a memory!!!!

Can't recommend it enough, even better than a hot stone massage as the shells keep their warmth. Just the best thing ever!

Just returned from a Lava Shell full body massage! A wonderful treatment that has left me feeling relaxed and content. The heat of the shells is fantastic, and very different to hot stones. Big thank you to Jo for being such an attentive and talented therapist... I will defo be back again. Bindon Abbey wellness retreat is a wonderfully special place, you feel relaxed as soon as you turn into the drive.

“A fabulous hot stone massage.... A real treat!”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

I bought a Live Elite deal for myself and my mum which included a half hour hot stone back massage, Shellac, drink and a treat. Well, I have to say that we were both very impressed.
The treatments were carefully explained and carried out in a gorgeous room downstairs with Jo. The only down side that it was all over too quick, I could easily have enjoyed a full hour no problem at all! The retreat is a little tricky to find as the Sat Nav takes you to a bungalow just up the road, so I would suggest giving Bindon Abbey a call when you are near and they will talk you in. It such a lovely place to relax and chill out. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

“Treat for Christmas”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Arranged for my Mum (88yrs) to have a Shellac manicure - Lisa was brilliant, patient and explained what she was doing each step of the way. (Mum can get anxious in new surroundings). Needn't have worried as the beautiful building and treatment room seemed to work it's own magic - Mum enjoyed every minute and was thrilled with the results, 2 compliments that day. We will be back!
