My experience with Lifehouse Spa over two days was quite enjoyable. I must admit having read some of the reviews I was somewhat expecting one or two issues but overall my partner and I had a pleasant time. The negative points include no Concierge service so I had to park my car in the distant car park and carry my...

Iv had various different rooms , the upgrades are really lovely 😊 my recent room in the mulberry wing abit like a glorified premier inn room , but nice and comfy . My only complaint was that it's still only April and...

Booked as a last minute birthday treat and was worth every penny. I contacted them prior to our stay to book treatments and meal times and the service was amazing. We arrived 25 minutes early but checked in with no problems. Spa was nice and warm, it was a bit busy on the Sunday but we got up at 8...

Thanks You Lifehouse spa for a wonderful night/days. I organised for seven of us to stay from Sunday to Monday for our friends 40th Birthday and we had such a relaxing time.

My third and finally visit to the Life house spa was absolutely shocking. Reception seem to have actually sorted themselves out although on exit they couldn't be bothered to here our experiences. Right here goes what went wrong, jacuzzi cold, steam rooms all broken pretty limited to sauna, ice pool and swimming pool. Booked in for a massage, with someone...

My mum and I visited the lifehouse spa this weekend, arrived home this afternoon. When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly receptionist, our treatment and dinner times had been booked so they clashed, the receptionist sorted this straight away and allowed us to go down to our room early to sort everything out. The rooms are large and...

We got a fantastic deal which included one night bed and breakfast and afternoon tea. This is our second time here. When we arrived we needed to change all the times of our treatments and dinner/tea as they were put in ridiculous times (4.30pm afternoon tea and then 6.00pm dinner). To be fair, these were changed on arrival. Our room...

I used to visit this spa 3-4 times a year and used to love it, unfortunately over the last few years it's gone down hill dramatically. The best treatments in my opinion were the Espa treatments which they swapped for Clarins a while ago (I'm not a fan of clarins treatments) none of the massages I had measured up and...
