Total Relaxation
A lovely way to escape modern living - the grounds are beautiful as is the resort - would love to try other Champneys but this is so close it makes it the perfect escape . Only problem is trying to decided what treatments to have !

Champneys Forest Mere
I have just returned yesterday from Champneys Forest Mere.My mother and I stayed for a 3 day mid week break.This was our first time and will NOT be our last.The food was amazing, The facilities were great , the treatments were out of this world and the staff were so friendly and helpful. There was not a single time were we had to wait for anything.The room was clean and tidy.There is everything you have always wanted on tap.It was overall expensive but was more than worth it.I am saving for a return visit asap.

Would NOT recommend highly...
Out dated, small facilities- Meager outdoor pool with limited range of bikes for rent. Ridiculously small gym with limited amount of weighted exercise facilities. Whole hotel needs updating, very out of date decor (especially in restaurants). Everything seems cheap and quickly put together. "Old House" section of hotel is beautiful however, but not utilized well enough. Mere restaurant is gorgeous but despite being '5 courses' could definitely serve them in a more silver service manner. Would make guests feel special. Staff were polite and well trained in treatments area, however they had to work from cramped rooms in an attic space and seemed under stress to 'conveyor-belt' clients. Restaurant staff were uninterested in clients and were stood around bar chatting to each other. Took a few minutes to try and get some attention to buy a coffee or book in for dinner. Young boy in restaurant wearing a black waistcoat clearly pocketed the cash after serving some drinks, could see this from row of tables close to bar. Made me skeptical what I was actually paying for- a coffee or his petrol home?! Spoke to brown haired girl on reception about the incident and she told me I must have been seeing things. Rude!!!!

happy again! but....
Another visit to Forest Mere, but this time we were so tired and recovering from winter bugs that all we wanted to do was sleep. Which we did endlessly - and delightfully. On the whole staff, especially in the main dining hall, were charming and helpful. In another of the restaurants, no, they were not. The price of the return vouchers has gone up, the extras are charged at a higher rate too, so this time I refrained from any such purchase as the deal has lost considerable merit compared with before. I would return, but not before checking out other spas.

Very poor customer service
After tripping over uneven carpeting during the 'tour' at the very beginning of our visit and injuring my knee - which meant I could not attend any of the classes and my enjoyment of the day was very limited - Champneys have studiously ignored any communication from me. I feel there are serious health and safety concerns at this facility and I would warn any Spa goers to be very careful walking around the site. Insist on taking your belongings, robes etc. to the lockers before the tour. Good luck.

A lovely relaxing break...
We stayed at Champneys in January 2011 and had an amazing time. The whole stay was relaxing and we came away feeling relaxed and refreshed. The food is great - really healthy but tasty and lots of choice. The treatments were carried out professionally and were just truly amazing. I had a massage and I came out feeling on cloud 9! I would certainly recommend a stay here - your time and money will not be wasted.

Champneys Forest Mere
I went to this Spa at the end of June with six friends and I couldn;t fault it. Our room was gorgeous it had a balcony with great views. The food was divine and the treatments so relaxing. The location is outstanding and I would definitely go again

Delightful and Delicious
Two of us needed a break, and a break with pampering. And this is entirely what we got. Champneys at Forest Mere is in the most beautiful of settings, our rooms were excellent, the food divinely delicious. We tried several different treatments and thalassotherapy which was a most extraordinary experience - and then wanted another session of it. The swimming pool at Forest Mere is quite one of the most lovely to swim in. I decided to have a swimming lesson as well - and learned so much, with such humour and encouragement, that I can't wait to come again - let alone for the sheer enjoyment and sense of being restored. Marvelous altogether.

Chill Out Time at Forest Mere!
My friend and I were fortunate to have a girly day away at Champneys Forest Mere, the whole experience was heaven, from the location, to the scenary, to the treatments and the food. The whole day was wonderful and we both felt very relaxed and chilled out after our special day. I particularly enjoyed my facial, and felt that the Beauty Consultant really listened to my needs and was able to recommend products that were not possibly the most expensive, but actually were right for my skin. Would definitely go again.
