My sister and I visited on the 23rd March. Our package included 3 treatments and lunch. The team at reception were very friendly and explained the layout of the spa well. The sauna was small, but pleasant, as was the jacuzzi. The pool is also small and occupied by an exercise class when we were there.
We weren’t given clear directions to lunch or slippers, but were rescued by the very helpful hotel receptionist, who showed us the way and gave us slippers. We were greeted at lunch with a small glass of water and not offered any further drinks. Lunch was very poor, we both had the stir fried vegetables. We were expecting seasonal vegetables with some crunch - we got undercooked noodles, with peppers and aubergine in a thick sweet and salty sauce. The sorbet for dessert was okay. We would have ordered a hot drink to finish if anyone came to the table, but they didn’t.
Our treatments then followed. The exfoliation and massage were excellent, but then I was given a manicure while I was still in paper knickers, under a towel on the massage bed. I didn’t realise what was happening as my eyes were still covered. Needless to say there wasn’t a chance of getting back into my knickers and the robe without smudging the nails. Can’t think why they didn’t get me back in the robe after the massage and do the manicure at the nail bar downstairs.
On balance I much prefer Seaham Hall, so they’ll be getting my custom in the future.
