First time at the Lifehouse. Stunning weather, great room - so quiet and well appointed, a glorious garden with so much to see and too many treatments to mention. Nice just to chill on the decking and let the world go by. Nothing was any trouble for the excellent staff. A gentle courtesy between guests which does not always happen...

I spent a lovely relaxing day here with my friend, who is a member. Admission was free using one of her courtesy day passes for a friend. I chose to do an aqua aerobics class which cost me £5. After arrival and registration, we changed, ready for the class. The changing area is nicely laid out with plenty of locker...

There were lots of positives about Lifehouse, the therapist i had was absolutely lovely, as were all the check-in staff we met. The quality of spa itself is fine, nothing amazing but we enjoyed it and the fitness classes. The grounds and the main courtyard are really very pretty and provide a lovely environment. There were three main points which...

Encountered a Rude customer service/booking representative when I tried to alter my date several weeks in advanced. Contacted Lifehouse and as I had booked through Lastminute.com I was told I needed to seek approval from lastminute. Lastminute were fine and said a date change was no problem. The Lifehouse representative was then extremely rude about changing the date. She was...
