"We had such an amazing time"

Just wanted to send a huge thank you for this weekend - we had such an amazing time. One of the things that struck me most was how charming the staff were - from the moment we arrived they were just so accommodating and cheerful. Our room was lovely and the hotel very generously had a bottle of champagne waiting in our room. We couldn't believe it!

The spa is just fantastic - so luxurious. I will definitely be recommending it to friends and colleagues.

“Great stay!”

We had a thoroughly relaxing day at the spa, I had the most blissful hot stone massage, we made full use of the hydrotherapy pool room which had the best facilities of a spa I have visited (the ice room was fab!) and spent time chilling out in the quiet room (I was so relaxed I fell asleep!) lunch in the Thai restaurant was fantastic too.

“Amazing is the only word!”

The SenSpa was out of this world magic .. Anyone wanting to chill and restore their body, mind and soul needs to visit Careys Manor - we left feeling calm and relaxed! Life can't get any better! Happy at home now in the front room burning the SenSpa oil in the glorious burner we purchased at the gift shop where we met such a lovely lady who was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We have to say all the staff were totally fantastic.!

From the warm hydrotherapy pool massaging your backs with the water jets, to the crushed ice and experience showers, it was all amazing. One of our favourite rooms though, was the health showers where the water was scented with the smell of menthol.

“Relaxing weekend”

I booked Spa treatments for me and my partner which we indulged in after enjoying the sauna and steam room first, and the facilities and treatments were blissful.

“Lovely Spa day!”

Nice welcome, relaxing atmosphere and enough Hydro facilities to ensure that boredom never sets in. I was also lucky enough to join in one of the aqua aerobics classes - loved it. Lunch was also delicious and just the right amount. Would recommend this Spa and plan to go again.
