I flew into town and needed some relaxation, heard that The Monastery Spa won 2016 People Choice Award so I decided to give it a try. What a great experience I had. The Monastery Spa team was nothing but absolutely accommodating, friendly, helpful! This spa far surpasses anything I expected ...pristine and clean. The staff are really incredible. The service...

I have been a client of the spa for many many years. i have taken advantage of their hotel, staying there a number of times, but more recently going to a massage therapist. My last appointment with the massage therapist was in April of this year and I have tried so many times to call back and re-book -- no... More

I had a shellac manicure done ($75) which I thought was a little pricey but I went ahead anyways. I asked for a specific colour and was told it would come out like I asked, and was not even close to what I had asked for. Along with this, my nails were not consistant, some parts were see-through, and cut... More

This hotel has gone downhill so much... last visit was over 2 years ago and the difference between then and now is astounding. This hotel looks horribly run down. The furniture is delapidated... there are nicks in the black furniture everywhere, they even tried to cover up nicks with grey paint on black furniture! The walls in the washroom were... More

I booked a night at the hotel with my mom and sister as an overnight retreat for ourselves. We also booked half an hour massage with the Spa. The hotel itself was great --- no issues there. The massages however, were deplorable. My massage was about 17 minutes from start to finish, and I felt something was off when the... More

I booked an appointment for a pedicure at this spa earlier this week. To be honest, I always find them a bit pricey for the services, but yesterday I spent $84.75 for a pedicure. Not a shellac, not a paraffin wax, just polish. The foot rub and attention to my feet was nice but not nice enough for $85.00. There... More

This hotel was just average overall. The location wasn't great, the staff was less than friendly (on check in the front desk woman barely spoke and seemed to not remotely care, a phone call to the front desk for a wiFi password didn't even get answered), and the rooms were quite dated. The price was just OK. I would pay... More

I have had the pleasure of enjoying several services at this lovely spa. From the moment you walk in the door to the time you leave, the atmosphere provides much detail in the area of relaxation. On July 9, 2015, I had the pleasure of having my wedding spa day at the Monastery. Although there were a few hiccups along... More

Myself and 10 other co-workers went to the spa on May 31 for a much needed relaxation, and that is exactly what we had. They had the cafe set up beautifully for us with treats and beverages. We didn't have to ask for anything, they were tending to us. Most of us had facials, which were the most amazing facials.... More
