My friend and I had a wonderful day relaxing at the spa, swimming, using the sauna, steam room and bravely the plunge pool! Lunch was delicious and afternoon was spent having wonderful treatment with your fantastic and friendly staff. All in all a day worth repeating.
I was given this treat as a birthday present, and it was probably one of the best presents I've had. I took a friend and we had a fantastic and fun day - just what we both needed. The booking process was all straight forward (even for someone who is only semi-computer literate) and the staff at Champneys were all very welcoming and helpful. The massage was brilliant, the manicure good, and we took advantage of an offer on the Thalassotherapy sessions - which was incredible. Otherwise we enjoyed a relaxing day utilising the various options available - such as swimming and use of the sauna - and finished off the day with a yoga class. It was so good, we've both decided we should make it a regular event in our diaries!
My friend and I had a lovely day at Champneys, we will definitely be going back
I took my pregnant daughter in law for a relaxation day. We've been to Forest Mere before but the view of the lake when you drive in still takes your breath away! We began our day with a massage then as the weather was so perfect we headed to the outdoor pool where we settled onto comfy sunbeds. The water was amazingly warm and we lounged until lunch. Lunch is a self service buffet, with plentiful choices of salads and hot food and you can refil as many times as you want. There are two restaurants and one overlooks the lake and you can eat on the outdoor terrace or inside. Afterwards we went to the indoor pool and whirlpool, followed by our other inclusive treatment of manicure/pedicure before heading home. The only downside was that there was no availability for additional treatments as they were so busy, but if you are resident you are more likely to be able to book in advance. This didn't spoil our day in any way as it gave us a chance to appreciate the weather.
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.
