I've just come back from a 3 night "wellness break" at Temple Spa. I hadn't read any of the reviews here before I went and am very glad I didn't as there are so many negative ones. I had a wonderful experience. My 3 night break included all meals and 3 spa treatments. I could also, if I wished participate in the activities on offer such as yoga, walks, posture classes etc.
The welcome on arrival was excellent. i was shown to my room then given a tour of the place by Mark (I think). All staff were very pleasant. I had lunch before my first treatment and found it to be lovely. All my spa treatments throughout my stay were wonderful but particular mention has to go to Mary for the "La Stone Therapy" which was the most wonderful way to spend an hour - absolute bliss. I'll definitely be returning for that treatment. All meals were very good with generous portions and all menu options were clearly marked with letters signifying low-fat, gluten-free, wheat-free etc.
While my room had no TV (something that I had no issue with) it did have a CD/radio and I was able to play my own CDs which was nice. The layout of the spa is lovely, the common areas are spotlessly clean and it is very relaxing which is, after all, the point!
My only gripes were firstly that the lunch menu could have varied a bit, my bedroom was much too hot (though the heating wasn't on) and one of my treatment times was changed without my being informed resulting in my sitting in the waiting area for 20 minutes waiting to be called. Apart from these, i really enjoyed my stay and I will definitely be returning in the future
