Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had such an amazing time at the Escape Spa from start to finish! The girls on reception were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. I had the Voya Deluxe facial and dry float and it was amazing! The products felt really luxurious and my therapist Maggi was fantastic she gave me really great skincare advice and recommended some products to suit my skin. The dry float was a lovely finish to my treatments I felt so relaxed leaving the Spa. I already cant wait for my next visit to the Escape Spa and will be recommending to everyone! :)

The escape spa is purely that a true escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Its welcoming peaceful and staff are very friendly. The areas were cleaned and sanitised regularly and well maintained with fresh water available. I had the chakra balancing treatment with Niamh. It was so wonderful, a relaxing, rejuvenating, energising treatment. My therapist was really supportive and gently guided the process, released the tension and balanced the body, and has healing hands. I loved her added tips for wellness and self care. Wonderful from start to finish. Unreservedly recommend this treatment, spa, and relaxing areas. Thank you Escape for a fabulous day. Ill look forward to booking in again soon.

My friend and I went for the a la carte package this week and we couldn't have been any more pleased with our experience.

From the moment we set our feet into the hotel lobby we were made feel very welcome. The receptionist explained where to get parking nearby and the concierge was also very kind and took us to the restaurant and then the entrance of the spa.

The package is broken down in 3 parts, lunch, pool and the treatment. The food was incredible, we had some lovely mocktails and then went to the pool.

Niamh, the masseuse who looked after me, was just the most knowledgeable, sweetest, kindest and the most caring person ever. I didn't feel the hour pass and left wishing I had booked a much longer session.
I guess some people are just made for their jobs and Niamh is one of them. Thank you so much for everything and for the explanations during the treatment which made me feel very comfortable and aware of the process.

I have recommended it to all my friends and i am certainly coming back, I just hope I can be looked after by Niamh again. Thank you, love!

I visited the spa recently and it was a great experience, the staff were all very friendly and helpful especially the receptionists. The spa was very clean and the over all treatment was fantastic. The float is my new favourite thing. I’ll definitely be back!!

Really enjoyed every minute of the experience here. Everyone we met was lovely and attentive.
Niamh was particularly amazing, such an intuitive therapist with healing hands. She understood what I needed and looked after me with such a level of care. I would recommend Niamh highly and I’ll certainly be back to her. Thank you so much.
