I took my husband to the Lifehouse Spa for the day for his birthday and we had a great day. The 10-6 deal with a 25 treatment worked really well, with plenty of time to relax.The £10 credit pp to spend on food was much appreciated as it pretty much paid for our lunch and drinks. Would definitely go back.

This spa has a friendly, informal feel - nothing pretentious here. Very good treatments in a lovely building with great grounds if you have time for a wander!

The spa itself was lovely, staff very professional and helpful - well worth the last minute price. However, the 25 minute treatment was more like 15-20 minutes max. Also the food is terribly overpriced - I expected to pay £6 for a sandwich at a place like this but it would be nice if they put a bit more effort into it than dry bread, cheese and pickle! They also mixed up our appointment times so that I had to have mine at a different time but the staff were very apologetic and gave me a free smoothie whilst I waited for the others.

My friend & I Arrived just about 9am & a very pleasant receptionist directed us round to another receptionist to check in for our spa day. I had requested lunch for 1pm & our facials for 3pm, the lunch booking was fine but had us down for facials at 12.15! However the young lady quickly managed to get it changed to 2.30 which was fine. Spent some time in spa facilities, did find the swimming pool a little on the cool side, which I have found on previous visits too. We ordered a bottle of wine in the bar & had to wait quite a while for the bartender to go & find a corkscrew, which we found rather peculiar, thought there would have been at least a couple behind the bar. We had a very nice lunch, not a lot of ambience as only ones dining apart from a very large corporate gathering. Had a very pleasant coffee upstairs & again friendly staff. We both had a facial, and we both agreed what a pleasant experience that was. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the quiet area afterwards, that was most enjoyable. Spent a little more time in the spa area then got changed & spent our last hour in the bar/lounge area. We ordered 2 glasses of wine & couldn't believe that the barman once again had to disappear to find a corkscrew!! Very bizarre!! Overall our visit was a very pleasant experience, with just a few little hiccups. We have visited several times before & am sure we will be back in the not too distant future.

Lovely bedroom. Very attractive grounds. Treatments excellent but Pool and surrounding areas very dark and was told shortage of loungers in pool and hydropool area because it was the end of half term?? no good when you want to relax and there was room for more! Bar food not great but dinner excellent.

A reasonable place to visit if you only fancy a swim and to go into the sauna and steam room and jacuzzi. Service at lunch was poor and no drink was included in the meal. Quiet room was a good idea but no door to shut out the noise and people kept talking so not really a chill out room. Quite expensive for what you receive especially as no where to sit by the pool as all seats had been taken first thing in the morning. Changing rooms have limited shower so have to wait and no machine to dry your swimming garments. Slightly disappointed for what we paid.

My boyfriend and I visited the Lifehouse Spa for my birthday. We both had an amazing experience, everything was beautiful including the grounds and so clean. Our room over looked some of the best views! The food tasted amazing - this spa is by far the best and the staff cannot do enough for you. Our massage was spot on and made us feel so relaxed that we didn't want to leave the following day! We both thought the sleep pod was a nice touch after our massage! We are already planning our next return. Thank you for making our visit enjoyable!

Lovely, enjoyable, indulgent day with 3 friends. The spa facilities are fab, (although they need more showers in the day spa changing area). The grounds and gardens are an unsung delight & we wished we had allowed more time to explore. We also ended the day taking part in the Meditation class which took us to a further level of calm.

My husband and I spent a night at the spa, the room was pretty but I did notice that some of the seams of the bedding were torn or open, there also seemed to be quite a few spiders and cobwebs around in the room and around the actual spa. We got a free 25 minute massage each and it was lovely, the masseuse was very professional and the treatment room was relaxing and private. The staff seemed professional and friendly. We did have a couple of long waits for food but the quality and taste was great and due to a long wait on a cream tea we were offered a free smoothie each. Overall I would give the spa a 4 out of 5.

just what we needed, was a last minute decision, but a great choice. We relaxed the moment we got there, to the moment we left. The staff were very friendly but professional and respectful. The food was delicious and the spa facilities excellent. Just wished we had stayed for two nights. Ideal for couples and I would also like to go with my mum. Highly recommended.
