Great day spa at a great price. Can spend 6 hours in this spa for 13 pounds. Plenty of different rooms available, steam, salt, sauna. Can also get a good lunch and treatments.

I have been here a number of times, and always enjoy the experience. The refurbished areas look good although I think more areas could have been worked on. Cant beat that jacuzzi!
