Enjoyed a massage with my husband while staying at The Irish Cottage. Joe and Susan were awesome and listened to our needs. The champagne and chocolates at the conclusion of our massage really were a nice touch. We will most definitely do this again!

The hot stone massage at the Galena Day Spa was great! Susan and Joe were excellent and made our hour long couples massage as comfortable as possible. The champagne and chocolates at the end were a nice touch. Our trip to the Galena Day Spa was the perfect addition to our weekend getaway!

Went for a spa package that included massage, facial and pedicure. Massage and facial were nice but pedicure was not so great. I was concerned about sanitation since nail tech had a used file for shaping. Not clear when clippers, etc had last been sanitized.

We went to Galena on our anniversary. We chose Galena Day Spa for our massages. The massages were verygood however I would've liked a relaxation room or some kind of transition room. It was massage over, walk out to the front room, here's a glass of water, we hope you enjoyed your massages,....... good bye.
