I have been a swimming only member here for 6 months and it's perfect for what I need which is exercise and relaxation. The staff are always friendly and any issues (a minor few with plumbing, breakdown of steam room and therapy pool rail) are usually quickly rectified. I have learnt the quieter/busier times and have joined in on a... More

Very nice evening of relaxation. Back and head massage followed by swim and spa. Nice shower and then a very nice meal. Well worth a visit.

Used the spa while staying as a guest at the hotel. The steam room and sauna are quite small especially the sauna. There is a one level swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a small pool with 2 large powerful jets which create a foaming bubbling effect which completely covers the shared steps making it very dangerous to get out of...

We are sorry that you found the facilities in our spa difficult to use but the steps into the Hydrotherapy pool are not meant to be used for guests entering or exiting the jacuzzi. There is in fact a wide ledge to sit on all around the jacuzzi which makes getting in and out very safe as it is designed... More

Gets very busy & not very much seating so you couldn't spend too much time in there.The attached brasserie is fab for lunch & very... More

I've had lots of treatments at Aquamanda and the staff are always so helpful, friendly and fantastic at their jobs. This week Felicity gave me a wonderful facial, catering for all of my specific needs, I'm never disappointed when I've had a treatment with her. The managers couldn't have been more helpful when I burnt my skin and needed treatment... More
