What others are saying

"We come here at least twice a year, we tend to use the spa in the afternoon and then eat in the bar area in the evening. Rooms are always relaxing and are a great size. I’d be happy to stay in the room and have room service which I have also done. Breakfast in the morning is amazing, we never want to leave. "

"This spa ticks all the boxes. It is customer centred and provides whatever is asked of it to a very high standard. I have used this spa several times and would recommend it for a relaxing and enjoyable time. The food was served professionally and you were able to relax in your robe. The changing rooms were spacious and comfortable to get changed in."

"I do love it here but sometimes it gets very busy, with the introduction of living social, groupon vouchers. Your review is a little outdated as they have squeezed in more loungers by the pool and in the treatment relaxation room. "

"After booking a spa day at The Mere for my partner as a gift I was really looking forward to a relaxing day. I was very sceptical about where to book as I have visited The Woodland Spa many times and it is amazing. I always leave feeling amazing. I wanted the same experience however unfortunately I did not leave The Mere feeling relaxed at all. On arrival the receptionist signed us in and asked whether we had been before which we had not. We were then given a clipboard to fill in information. Once we had done this we were point towards our changing rooms, my partner went of to his I went to to the ladies. We were not shown how to use lockers, where facilities were, where treatments took place or anything. Once we located the facilities we walked in to find an aqua aerobics class taking place??? We had not been warned of this and had no idea we would walk in to a “relaxing spa day” to loud music. To top it off there was also nowhere to sit due to the entire aqua aerobics class saving sun loungers with towels etc. When challenged The Mere informed me when towels are left of loungers they are moved by staff. Incorrect. As we witnessed the girl working there folding/rolling towels and robes up and placing them nicely in the middle of the beds. We decided we would start with the HYDROTHERAPY pool (I called it a hot tub in my complaint and was highly patronised) that was cold! I overheard a member saying it was very cold and not normally at this temp however I was reassured they carry out constant temperature checks and it was not down at all that day. Needless to say in my 4.5 hour visit not one person came to check the temperature of anything. Our massage was great and we felt very relaxed after this, we were then moved on to out rasul treatment where we were informed in about 30 seconds what we had to do and then she left promptly. We had never done this before and again was not correctly informed of the procedure. It seemed as though every member of staff was in a rush. The sauna in the rasul room had a broken shower control so unable to use and the door got stuck if you shut it fully. So after a lovely massage and feeling relaxed it was soon all undone so we left the rasul gaining nothing from it. I would not recommend The Mere Spa to anyone. Instead I would have a look at Ribby Hall Spa and The Woodland Spa. Both very good relaxing spas. In my opinion The Mere is a GLORIFIED LEISURE CENTRE. I have emailed The Mere previous to this review to try and come to a solution however I received a rude patronising email in return and when I replied to that I was left with no reply. Do not waste your money as there are far better spas out there! "
