Great choice of classes at no additional cost. Treatments were brilliant and staff very friendly. Lunch was healthy with a large selection, very enjoyable. Overall a lovely day relaxing and exercising.
A lovely day, well worth it
We had a lovely day out at Champneys yesterday - very relaxing experience indeed. They did get our treatments incorrect and they weren't booked for the same time which was disappointing but all round a great day out!
Beautiful location & really relaxing. The treatments were excellent & the Thallassotherapy Pool was great. Lovely lunch with amazing views.
Loads to do, lunch was great, fantastic service. Treatments were very good and on time, friendly staff, clean and tidy, can't fault it.
My daughter and I visited Forest Mere yesterday and were extremely impressed with the entire experience. Champneys is a magnificent building set in beautiful parkland, and its interior is incredibly well designed and so spacious. All the treatments we had - massages, pedicures and Champneys personalised facial - were special, and I would particularly mention Beverley who gave me the best facial I have ever had! Service in all departments was pleasant and very efficient, and the only thing that would have been very welcome was a glass of wine with lunch!
From the start of the day it all went well. Can't rate the place enough, staff great treatments wonderful, relaxed and not to overwhelmed.
Forest Mere is a beautiful spa, with lovely staff who are able to turn grey looking ladies into vibrant, glowing young women again! Well maybe not completely true, but i felt more relaxed after one day than a weeks holiday and my skin was glowing.
Spent a lovely day with a great friend. Champney's staff are so welcoming, nothing was too much bother. The food was so healthy, tasty and filling!! Treatments were great quality and very relaxing. I didn't want to come home!!
Really enjoyed my treatments. Staff were very professional
Forest Mere lived up to all the wonderful reviews I had heard and read. Both my friend and I enjoyed two treatments and full use of the facilities. We were able to try some exercise and relaxation classes that we had never experienced. The food was beautiful and we ate well! All the staff were friendly. We felt comfortable in the surroundings and it didn't matter what age, shape and size you were. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. A super enjoyable day that we will be repeating again!
Me and my friend had a very relaxing day. We really enjoyed the pampering and the lovely lunch. It all went very quickly but we certainly made the most of our special day.
I booked this experience for my daughter's 21st birthday. Forest Mere Champney's is in a truly tranquil and beautiful setting. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our treatments were amazing (especially my facial, thanks to the lovely Lucy) The only downside was that we had to come home at the end of the day. Next time we'll book a longer stay and make the most of all that's on offer.
Great facilities and it is necessary to get there early to enjoy as many as possible, especially if only there for one day. We stayed overnight which meant we could get more out of it.
My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderfully indulgent day in a delightful setting. Facilities were excellent and there was a wide range of activities to choose from. Booking the day was very easy. There was one thing that would have made the experience even better. The two treatments that were included as part of the day were each just 25 minutes long. I would have liked to have been able to extend these sessions but was told that I would need to make a request in writing at least two weeks before the day. In the end I didn't do that!
The staff were very professional and friendly. There were loads to get involved in and unlike other spas we were able to add treatments on the day. The grounds were beautiful and tranquil. The food was really good as well. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone as I could not find fault with anything.
Treatments were absolutely fabulous! Staff were really helpful throughout but especially the beauticians.
My friend Jan and I spent a wonderfully relaxing day swimming and chatting in the whirlpool and jacuzzi. Our treatments were fantastic: I had a facial and a pedicure. Jan had a massage and a manicure. The girls who did the treatments were friendly and professional and made the experience thoroughly enjoyable. Jan and I had a delicious lunch in the spa restaurant and a good look round the spa shop. We didn't want our spa day to end!
We had a thoroughly enjoyable day at the beautiful Champneys in Forest Mere. It is set in such peaceful grounds you relax just driving up to the building. I rang in advance to organise the treatment times as we were restricted to a late arrival and early departure due to having three children at three different schools needing dropping off and picking up! The lady on the phone made me feel like it was no trouble and everything was sorted out in advance. The pool was huge and very nicely laid out. There's a mixed sauna and then you can have a steam in your changing area. The lunch was lovely and I was allowed a second plate which went down far too easily. The massage was very good and my first ever pedicure was a real treat Thank you to Red Letter Days and Champneys for a memorable day of peace and quiet away from the usual chaos of life. My wife thoroughly deserved it and we have returned home re invigorated.
It was a great day however the treatments were very short 25 mins each - I wish I had of known before getting there as I would have upgraded the treatments to an hour as that is really what you need for a facial and massage - even the therapists agreed!! Would have been nice if there had been some where to relax as a couple. There was somewhere in the seperate changing rooms but then we would not have been together. Think if we had ben staying theer would not have been a problem. Food at lunch time was excellent - would recommend this
