5 Bubble Spa 2019

Lifehouse Spa & Hotel


Lifehouse is a contemporary spa set in English Heritage-Listed Thorpe Hall Gardens close to the pretty Essex town of Frinton-on-Sea. The spa has a large, dramatic pool area with grey, almost industrial, pillars, and huge twisted ropes decorating the walls. If you’re looking for cocooning quiet, try The Hidden Sanctuary for a more private experience. As well as traditional spa treatments, Lifehouse offers health and wellbeing consultations from resident specialists including fitness, life coaching, nutrition, weight loss and holistic therapies.

What others are saying

"Goodness knows what the criteria is to be a "5 bubble spa" lifehouse could be a lovely destination spa but its tired, the spa area looks dirty and has tiles missing etc, pool is freezing, the decor is worn and tired, the beds are creaky, the rooms are mediocre, they charge £10 for an ice bucket, the dining area is ok but not luxurious, there is goose poo everywhere outside, the quad area looks like a post apocalyptic wasteland, lights in corridors dont work so some areas are really dark, the lift didnt work when we stayed so we had to walk up stairs past all the cleaning equipment to get to our room. rubbish bags left outside rooms all day. Complained and got a free day spa and afternoon tea.. came back a year later to use it and the things that needed maintenance were still broken, jacuzzi cushion stuck on with foam, loads of missing tiles, limescale everywhere.. its ok.. but not luxury.. they are happy to take peoples money but it just feels like they are cutting corners everywhere..
