"I visited in May for my friend’s and my own birthday treats but more importantly because my friend was undergoing chemotherapy treatment . The staff are amazing, friendly a delight to interact with. The spa itself is just amazing, it’s the best I have been to and I like a cheeky spa treat a few times a year!! Treatments were fantastic and the food at the spa is absolutely devine. This spa has been very carefully designed and works to give the client a relaxing, enjoyable experience. This spa should have 10 bubbles "
