  • Expect to queue for 1-2 hours if you haven't booked (well in advance) a spa weekend or package treat. The number of people going in is managed at a threshold hence the long waiting times which is ideal not to have the place too busy. In general once inside it is a great experience and there are not many places like this around. You can easily spend a couple of hours here and with treatments a great deal longer at expense.
  • Spent 3 hours on Easter Friday here with my girlfriend, and it was a lovely time. Despite being rather busy, the facilities were clean, everything felt like it was kept to a high standard, the steam rooms were pleasant, and the food was tasty. The only very minor criticism I can think of would be that the food took a while to come after ordering, but the quality of the food was of a standard that I couldn't feel bad about, hence why I've kept a 5 star rating. Thanks for an enjoyable first spa experience!
  • There's three floors, the first has a warm pool with a gentle current around the outside and a weird stand-up jacuzzi that has barely any bubbles, the 2nd has steam rooms (both smell/taste like a can of cheap air freshener has exploded in them so we had to leave after 30 secs) plus an ice room and a warm sauna. Top floor is a roof pool overlooking Bath, good temperature and nice for float/chill for half hour. It was busy though there were lots of staff wandering around constantly carting dirty laundry around. Most of the robes are now off-white which does look very nice when all hung up around the pool. The changing rooms make you feel a bit like battery hen, lockers are free but confused most people and they ran out of shower gel in all 8 of the dispensers we tried. Interesting experience, glad we got it half price as wouldn't be happy to pay £36, unlikely we'll return.
  • A pricey couple of hours but for an occasional visit to unwind and relax it was excellent. I did not do any of the treatments, just enjoyed the pools and hot rooms, showers etc. The ice room felt a little pointless but maybe I was supposed to be brave and scrub my skin with it or something? The cold showers were far more therapeutic after the hot rooms. If I lived in that part of the world then I think I would treat myself a couple of times a year, and I'd go more if I could afford it. All in all, well worth a visit, and as a step short of going full spa treatments I would definitely recommend it.
  • Pleasantly surprised by the experience here, considering it's in the heart of town and a bit of a tourist destination. We planned on going on Monday afternoon but there was a queue and 45 min wait to get in by the time we arrived (around 4.30pm) which was actually a good sign because they operate a max people policy so it was one in, one out at this point to ensure no overcrowding. We were fortunate enough to be able to return on the Weds morning so arrived shortly after opening at 10am and had a lovely 2 hours. It's plenty of time to enjoy the outdoor/open air rooftop pool, the sauna, steam rooms, ice room etc and the basement pool which has a light current so you can float around at ease. Both pools provide pool noodles to help you float around. Both lovely and warm, extra nice on a cold but sunny Feb day! Robes and flip flops and towels provided and you can keep the flip flops! We didn't have any treatments but actually didn't feel we needed them. We left feeling so relaxed and our skin felt great too! Worth a visit if you can fit it in on your next trip to Bath.
