I'm really pleased I made, what is becoming my annual 'Personal Spring Clean' and fourth visit to Slimmeria. The formula really works for me; I find the walks invigorating, the additional exercise/classes very worthwhile, the team motivating, the extra sleeping time that I seldom afford myself at home restorative & the pampering treats very satisfactory. Massages on day 1 &...

Excellent retreat to focus mind and body in a friendly, no frills atmosphere. Met some great people and came back completely re-juvenated! Lovely countryside and places to walk to or visit. A good combination of seaside/antiques shops/ country feel.

Slimmeria is not a 5 star spa hotel with champagne and truffles. Ok, so now you know that, let's talk about what it is. It is a lovely old house in the countryside with very comfortable rooms and their goal is to help you lose weight through diet and fitness. At no point did I feel forced to do anything...

Dear Friend, we remember you so well, with your lovely mother. You were committed and positive. Alison thanks you for your kind comments, but says it was you that got yourself there! How great that you're still losing the weight that you want to and are eating healthier. We couldn't ask for more. We do accept, of course, that not...

I was lucky enough to win a weekend stay! I wasn't too sure what to expect and wasn't really looking forward to it to be honest! We arrived and were shown to our room, really beautiful (the only thing about the rooms was the cheap shower gel, shampoo and conditioner), but hey I'm being picky! The bell! the bell gongs...

Overall great results, stayed 2 weeks and most surprisingly I quit smoking - not expected but probably the best outcome! In addition I lost 16lb and 5 inches from my waist and finally broke my hellish sugar cycle. Being headache free for the first time in years has changed my life.

Dear Friend, Thank you for your lovely review. Of course, you are absolutely right that when here, one has to be in the right mindset and open to changing one's ways.

This really worked for me. I've stayed here for two weeks and lost 9kg! I was really fed up with myself and my bad habbits. So I knew that I had to face some hard intervention. It really helps when you can escape all the temptations of the 'real' world and can purely focus on changing your lifestyle. It's gonna...
