Customer Reviews for Lifehouse Spa & Hotel (6)

Love this place
Been to many spas but always go back to lifehouse. It's great when I go with my daughter, real chill and pamper. With my hubby for relax, destress and quality time together. Also great place to meet up with friends as we did before Xmas - always great

Fantastic spa getaway
I would say run don't walk to Lifehouse if you're looking for a quick spa break in the UK. The gorgeous grounds made me simply smile...if that makes sense. Little discoveries to be found while wondering peacefully around secluded ponds or taking a vigorous bike ride across the fields! Treatments were great and the rooms absolutely perfect. Food was undescribably good. And the fitness instructors made the hard-core boot camps fun and the more mellower yoga and core classes relaxing and invigorating.

Amazing Spa Break
What a fabulous spa experience my wife and I had! We took advantage of the Valentine's package for my wife's birthday, and enjoyed an overnight stay, coupled with amazing food, excellent service and treatments. From the moment we arrived, to when we sadly had to check out, we could not fault the attentive and helpful staff, nor the relaxing atmosphere and facilities. The Master Chef and catering team are to be congratulated for their imaginative menu, food quality and presentation. Can't wait to tell family and friends all about it, and will be returning soon.

Wow! What a fantastic spa
I would highly recommend anyone booking in for an overnight stay/break at Lifehouse, its a truly amazing place. the choice of spa treatments are brilliant, the food is stunning, I would go there just for the food its so good. Water facilities fab, the mood lighting in the pool area makes it truly relaxing. There are lots of places to chill out around the spa. Definitely a place to go, put it at the top of your list

Luxurious pre-Christmas break
I visited Lifehouse the weekend before Christmas, and enjoyed a very relaxing and luxurious stay. The spa itself is very modern and beautifully designed, from the architecture and interiors to the signage and identity. The illustrations used for each sign throughout the spa all work really well. When we visited there were still things which hadn't fully opened (Oriental Bathing Experience), so I'd love to try that out on my next visit. The spa area itself is great - particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi and the salt inhalation room. Also loved the massage chairs in the 'chill' area! Two other points which really made our weekend were the service and the food. Because I visited in the opening period it was fairly quiet, so there were lots of staff around. But everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The food comes in small portion sizes, but is delicious, and includes lots of extras in between courses. I think the food really stood out from other spas I have visited. Overall a lovely stay and I would definitely go back for another visit!

The perfect stay
From the very start of my experience, I felt pampered. The staff were on hand to take care of me from the moment I walked through the door. From parking my car, to putting my bags in my room, to being show round the facilities, it felt like I was receiving the royal treatment. The main spa was beautiful, with an amazing salt room that leaves your skin feeling so soft, and the best steam room I have ever been in. All of my treatments were amazing! I had a facial with Victoria and it was unlike anything I had ever had before, I felt so relaxed. The range of products used on my skin were so wonderful, and I chose to stock up on some from their on-site shop before coming home. The food was also a wonderful experience, with sumptuous courses which left me feeling pleasantly full, but not at all bloated. My room had a view of the gardens and lakes which was wonderful to wake up to in the morning, and helped enhance my relaxed feeling. I cannot recommend this Spa enough, it really does cater for everyone, and I am already planning my next stay as I feel there is still so much more for me to experience.
