Just got back after a one night stay at Grayshott. May I just point out from the very beginning that this is a spa hotel, not a hotel with a spa, there is a difference!
This little get away was booked by my mum as a a nice mother daughter experience, however there were many solo travellers happily enjoying their stays also which I thought was great.
Every member of staff was welcoming, helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Check in was smooth, we didn't wait long for our room (was ready an hour before we expected it to be) and the porters were very good and insisted on helping us with our bags. We were also given a tour whilst waiting for our room by one of the porters.
Our room was lovely, we had a junior suite which was a good size and had a lovely view of the grounds. It was very clean and well presented. The beds were also very comfortable, in fact I had a 10 hour sleep due to being so relaxed and so comfortable.
Tea and coffee are included in the price and are available pretty much throughout the whole day, as well as bottled water.
The spa facilities are of a good standard and are kept clean and replenished with towels etc.
I had 3 treatments at the spa: a Himalayan Salt Scrub, a massage and a gel manicure. I would like to highlight and give thanks to the therapists I had: Tamsin, Beata and Kelly, my experience was fantastic. I especially loved being able to choose an oil to a fragrance that I liked to be used during my scrub and massage. My nails look lovely and I am so pleased with them so thanks again Kelly.
My mum had a massage, a facial and a pedicure and she also thought her experience was fantastic.
The spa provides exercise classes throughout the day if you want to take part as well as ground walks. The whole atmosphere at Grayshott is peaceful, there isn't people shouting, using phones constantly, radios blaring, it's just a completely relaxing place in which you can just get away from it all.
The food is based around healthy eating and as a person that does try to eat healthy but wasn't actually going to Grayshott for this, I still really enjoyed the food that I ate. I especially enjoyed dinner in the evening. Everything was so tasty, had full flavour and was cooked to perfection. We both had the duck breast to start followed by the sirloin steak and a forest fruit Greek yogurt desert to finish. We are still talking about that meal now!
I cannot fault this spa at all and I am confused when I see unhappy reviews. I would definitely reccomend Grayshott and I would especially recommend it if you do want to get involved in lots of exercise classes and eat clean for a few days. Without the temptation of indulgences as you will not find fried food, coke, beer etc here (they do serve wine in the eve as well as a fruit cocktail- non alco)then I'm sure you will achieve a goal whatever it may be.
If you are thinking about booking, then I would say go ahead!
Thank you Grayshott.
