Upon arrival the receptionist greeted us warmly and asked if we had been before, as neither of us had she kindly explained everything. After completing the registration forms and answering a few medical questions we were shown around the facilities.
You can hire a robe and slippers all in a lovely bag for just £2.00, plus you get to keep the slipper afterwards. Lockers were available too for a refundable £1.00 deposit, they were a great size and you could easily get more than one persons clothes and bags in them.
The changing rooms were clean and large with showers, wash facilities and hairdryers available. I was impressed to see that they had a play pen in there too so you could place your little one in there whilst you were getting changed.
First up was the sauna, a little warm after a while but still really lovely. This was followed up a dip and chat in the pool. Even though we were there on a Sunday it was not overcrowded and the families that were there with children weren’t rowdy.
Next up was the Jacuzzi we spent quite a long time in there, the bubbles were so relaxing. I felt like I’d already had a massage from the jets, very therapeutic. After a quick drink and snack we thought we’d pop into the steam room to open our pores ready for our treatments.
I really enjoyed the steam room, I couldn’t quite managed to sit on the top seats but I felt so much better after being in there.
The gym and fitness sessions were available too but they felt a little too energetic for us!
After being welcomed into the spa area, we were shown to the relaxation room. A darken room with six heated mosaic beds, which were surprisingly comfortable. I think it must be the angle of the beds or maybe the heat but they really did help us relax before our treatments.
The package entitled us to both have the following treatments, we opted to have a joint treatment room. There were single treatment rooms available if you prefer.
