Lovely spa. Could you improve the entrance as you feel as though you are being sent round to the dustbins at the back of the hotel? More attention needs to be paid to ensuring there are plenty of clean cups available in the tea room, and that the milk is replenished. (I had to ring down on 2 occasions)

Good value . Spa facilities excellent as was the Thai resturant attached to it. Both breakfast and the breakfast room very nice and relaxed with space. Location ideal to get to other places in new forest. Overall recommended.

Quite simply a great venue, the lunch in the Thai Garden was delicious and the treatments are fab too. Sign of a good break, neither of us wanted to leave! The only thing to improve on, it would be lovely to be able to obtain fruit juice/tea as part of the free refreshments firstly more readily without trailing from pool to upstairs, through changing rooms and back again (all that lounging and so on is thirsty work) and secondly, refreshments often seem to run out by the afternoon so it would be good to maintain these and ensure they are available the whole time spa is in use. However, yet to find a spa we love as much!

Had a lovely day at Carey's Manor. It was my birthday and staff were very attentive. The facilities were very good, only one thing was perhaps the shower area. A bit tired.
Enjoyable afternoon tea. Would recommend this spa.

Fabulous... The best I have ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole time with Senspa. Only downside was the main pool was a bit too chilly! Otherwise the hotel, food and all facilities are superb. THANK YOU.

Great hotel very luxurious rooms were lovely and clean as was the spa. We had a double treatment room where I had a pregnancy massage and my partner had an anti stress
Massage which he loved! My massage was perfect and the masseuse really made
Me feel comfortable and that my baby was always well protected. The Thai lunch we had was perfect as was the French bistro evening meal we had.
The hotel and spa is quite pricey but worth it, the staff were lovely and very helpful at all times. Only slight criticism is the rooms don't have room service but will bring fresh milk to your room, or movies on the tv. The corridors and nets in the room were also looking a little tired but nothing at all to spoil the wonderful break.

The location in the New Forest was stunning. The venue was pretty old-fashioned in style and the Asian styling was restricted to the Spa area. The food in the main Manor restaurant was excellent but the room it was served in was very fuddy duddy. The service was excellent on the first evening by a French waiter, the service on the second evening and at the bar was very poor, very young staff with no clue. The room was OK, spacious but nothing special again too old fashioned for our taste.
The Thai massage was fantastic, one of the best we have had, and the hydrotherapy area was great. We probably would not go there again.

This place really knows how to look after you. right form the moment you arrive at the hotel there is always someone offering to park your car, show you the way, help with your luggage etc. Everyone has a smile and greeting, there rooms are beautiful, the spa is amazing, my treatment was perfect. I didn't want to leave. This is a place that really pays attention to the small details that matter. Not many places you can say that about these days.

Welcome to Thailand. Oh ok, it's the New Forest but it may as well be a luxurious retreat in Phuket the way the spa is kitted out with traditional Thai furnishings. Buddhas smile down at you as you trot off for a well-earned treatment in SenSpa's treatment rooms......

I'm told that the best way to put a spa to the test is to arrive stressed out and knackered. I hadn't intended for this to be my approach when I set off for my day of pampering, but a series of delays and fraught phone calls en route soon saw to it that I was about as strung out and anxious as possible by the time I arrived.

Once settled in to the plush hotel room Carey's had arranged for my partner and I, however, I began to feel the stress subside a little. I suspect the freshly-chilled champagne helped here, but it wasn't until I ventured downstairs into the spa proper that I really remembered what it was to be calm...

Late as I was, I went straight into my treatment; an anti-stress Thai massage in one of the candlelit chambers adjascent to the pool and hydrotherapy suite. In half an hour I felt all the day's woes melt away as my friendly therapist worked mainly on my neck and shoulders, having asked me which parts needed most attention. There were smells, bells and only one or two yells from me as she kneeded away the tension.

Feeling utterly chilled, I followed up my massage with a proper tour of the spa's facilities. As well as the expected pool, jacuzzi and sauna, Sen Spa has an adjoining hydrotherapy suite for those on its spa break package. So I donned my bikini and went to see what was on offer.

The suite's main attraction is its therapy pool, which has specially designed underwater seating areas, where you can sit or lie in utmost comfort. Like a kid in a candy store I soon leapt into the warm water and started pressing all the buttons that make bubbles and fountains appear from nowhere.

Once out of the pool, I found myself faced with an inviting row of doors, each leading to a different sensory delight. The first door I tried led to the poshest sauna I've ever seen, complete with twinkly lights to aid relaxation. Next came the 'storm showers' which shoot out warm and cold water to simulate a tropical storm, with flashing lights and sound effects for extra ambience - surprisingly plesant after the dry heat of the sauna! Behind other doors, I found a Roman-style tepidarium, a crystal steam room and 'health showers' featuring aromatic mists.

It was soon time for dinner in the spa's own Thai restaurant, followed by a good night's sleep in my huge and comfortable bed. Despite being no morning person and quite keen to continue 'testing' the sleeping arrangements, I was up bright and early to make the most of my time at the spa.

The hours flew by and I left knowing that I'd happily recommend Sen Spa to anyone. It's ideal for anyone wanting a bit of high-octane pampering, but would also suit seasoned spa-addicts looking for something new. Whether you go with friends, a partner or on your own, you can guarantee you won't run out of things to do!

As hotel guests, we could have used the pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room for no extra charge - and they were top class for hotel facilities - but for only £70 for the two of us, we had a full day's access to the wonderful hydrotherapy and relaxation areas. The variety and quality of features in the hydrotherapy area was amazing - far better than in spas where I have paid £100+ for one person - and the relaxation zone was very tranquil and comfortable.

Staff were very helpful and knowledgable, amking everything very easy and straightforward, changing rooms were comfortable with generously sized lockers and the overall ambience was peaceful and relaxing - and not overcrowded.

Although my facial was lovely, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary, unlike the rest of the spa. The spa itself was the best I have ever visited by a long way.

However I would have liked to be able to get a cup of tea or soft drink in the "wet" area of the spa rather than having to dry and change to go for one. I think on fine days it would have been possible to get one in the garden, but on the wet and windy day I visited this wasn't an option.
