I have never slept so well before! It is very relaxing but very hot, a lot hotter than we expected. Once you ease your way in its absolutely beautiful. The showers, toilets and change rooms were very clean and well maintained .

The baths are great. Very clean and well maintained. It is a great way to end the day and met people from everywhere. We heard several stories from people there about the improvements in their health after spending time at the baths.
