Came today for a pamper day for my partners' birthday. The facilities were really disappointing given the price and blurb on the website. Tiny changing room with no shower other than the poolside one, rather nasty plastic hot tub, great pool but badly needed a clean and scruffy all round. Lunch was tiny and mean - Detox lunch doesn't really translate as a Ham Sandwich and most places let you have herbal tea all day, not a scruffy laminated voucher for "one cup of tea". Spa also covered in bossy notices "don't do this, don't do that" - "don't take drinks in the hot tub" - at The Scarlett they'll bring you a glass of champagne in it! After lunch however the day was saved with one of the best massages and facials I have ever had. Real care taken to check out our needs and preferences and for once, they could cope with my super sensitive skin. Please please smarten up the pool area and build some better changing facilities. Take down the notices and we'd be there all the time!
