Booked the "Two's Company" package at Soak Seaweed Bath for a girlie break away and stayed here in Snooze Apartments for two nights. It was fab!
We arrived and were greeted by Dermot (owner) who was most friendly and welcoming, checked in with ease and that set the scene for the remainder of the break. A quick tour around of Soak, Soothe, Sip and Snooze left me feeling most impressed!
We stayed in the top floor one bedroom apartment which was overlooking the sea and backed onto the beautiful Mourne Mountains / Donard Park. The view was amazing, the windows at the front were Velux roof windows, in through which the sun shone and heated the apartment during the day, which was lovely to come in home to! And it really did feel homely! :)
I was most impressed with the presentation of the apartment, it was spotlessly clean, a good size, and very well equipped with leather sofa (which also turned into a sofa bed) flat screen TV, dining area, well equipped kitched if you wanted to dine in, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washer/drier. The bedroom was well furnished and was very comfortable, I had a fantastic couple of nights sleep!
The apartments also had wi-fi and this enabled us to check out what was around locally to eat and drink! However, Dermot was on hand to provide some great advice! Nothing was too much trouble in asking for recommendations for the local area.
With gas central heating, the apartment heated quickly in the evenings and we had hot water as and when required.
We had a seaweed bath and also a full body massage in our package, and all I can say is "wow!" The seaweed bath was amazing, we had a twin room, so we could chat, although while listening to the music we had brought with us, you can't help but drift away into bliss! It was so relaxing, and was a total de-stress after a manic few weeks in work! We had the full body massage the following day, and it was fabulous. Followed by the most delicious hot chocolate and raspberry and white chocolate scones, we really didnt want to leave! I was totally revitalised and relaxed.
We enjoyed Newcastle on our last evening and were already planning a return visit over a cocktail!
All in all, it was a very relaxing short break and I have highly recommended it to friends and family. It most definitely is Newcastle's best kept secret!
