Staff were very friendly but facilities were disappointing. There were only 2 toilets in the spa area and one smelled awful and was soaking wet. Understandable as it was in the changing rooms but when we went for our treatments in our fluffy robes, we had to come back to those toilets as there were none in the relaxation area. It was busy when we visited and had to wait desperately for a toilet. Treatments were great and good value - the staff were great. Afternoon tea was nice but took such a long time to arrive and although I had booked the luxury deal with a glass of fizz, we had to ask for it and had to wait at least 15 minutes before being served. It was a nice enough day but I wouldn't go back.

Excellent experience from the moment we arrived. Couldn't fault it other than the gym was very hot for working out in. Staff were welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. The room was lovely and food fantastic. The spa was great and girls made us feel very relaxed. Would definitely recommend the hot stones and facial if you want to relax and unwind. Would love to do it again for a real treat.

Amazing treatments in spa. Could do with a few more things as well as sauna and pool but the spa treatments themselves were fantastic. Staff doing treatments were very professional and a high standard.

We loved the whole experience. The atmosphere , the aroma - only one small criticism which is no ones fault. After our treatments and feeling totally relaxed and chilled out , on returning to the changing rooms there were two screaming toddlers who were getting changed and it was a tad stressful listening to them . We will be back. Thank you

I would not go back to Holyrood. The pool was freezing, the relaxation room had no space to relax as there was no where to sit. 2 of the seats are the side of the pool are broken so there was no where to relax for the day. Afternoon tea was nice and the therapist was very good.

Was really good value. Unfortunately the steam room was out of order which limited our choice a bit. Very clean facilities.

We booked the spa and afternoon tea package for a ladies' day out. The staff at the hotel were all lovely and very helpful. we used the pool area and sauna/steam rooms. It was very pleasant although more seating around the pool would have been beneficial. The relaxation room was a lovely place to chill out after using the facilities. We cannot fault the afternoon tea. The food was lovely and there was plenty of it. We didn't realise that the package also included Prosecco so that was a nice surprise. During the afternoon tea one of the staff from the spa came to see us and brought a bag of beauty products from the spa for one of the party who hadn't been able to make it due to illness, which was such a lovely thing to do and very much appreciated. We would definitely return in future.

The actual spa day was not as good as expected. The let down was the afternoon tea - they took ages to serve us and then the scones were like rock buns and the cakes were actually frozen mini cakes. Sandwiches ok but had been lying around so the outer edges were hard. Paid for 1hr massage for both and that was outstanding but the rest was not great. Actual swimming pool area is a bit jaded but the rest of it i.e. changing rooms and treatment rooms and relaxation area were fabulous.
