Had Spa Pamper Day to relax & catch up with a friend. The offer consisted of use of pool/sauna/spa/rooftop garden/relaxation room, 30 min back massage & a mud rasul & afternoon tea.
The staff were friendly, approachable & helpful. The massage was relaxing in a calm atmosphere, albeit the room was a bit stuffy (it was a scorching hot day). Clear instructions given for the mud rasul but the rasul room steam was just a little too intense, even for my friend who is a hardened sauna user. Beware if you sit nearest the door on the bench you could burn your leg on the steam generator.
Afternoon tea lovely with good well filled proper crust on sandwiches & a killer cream scone. Not so sure of the other cakes which seemed pre bought.
Relaxation room is lovely & looks recently decorated/furnished, however the rooftop garden was a disappointment with its bird poo & astro-turf, a nice idea but could be so much better.
All treatment rooms spread throughout hotel - do not expect a very swish spa complex. Having said that, if you want to relax without being put off by plastic fantastic size 6 ladies this is the place for you. If you want more grandeur or fit the above category try the Esplanade down the road!
