First of all I should mention that I went to stay a night using my Pru Health private medical insurance discount which enabled me to stay the night in a standard room for £35 (Platinum level member) which included 3 meals, 1 back massage and full use of the facilities so for me the value was AMAZING!
I went to Tring last time so I knew what to expect.
The food was healthy and great, I have no complaints. Dinner was a nice 3 course meal, there are various options to suit all. Breakfast and Lunch are buffets with all sorts of things on offer, all nutritionally balanced and healthy.
The room was sufficient, nothing special, just a standard room as expected.
The facilities were OK. I liked that there was a separate area of Sauna, Steam rooms for women only. Tring had only shared sex facilities so I apreciated that. However the steam room smelt musty so couldn't stay in there long.
The gym was more spacious as well as the pool so I was pleased. This time I did not join any classes but instead we went for a walk around the lake, it was really beautiful. The surroundings were the best.
My back massage was good, my thereapist was Carly. I would reccommend her to anyone going. I very rarely reccomment a therapist TBH but she was good and gave sound advice. I kind of wish I extended my massage which was only 25 mins but it was free after all.
Now the negatives.... We didn't get complimentary slippers this time. And in the spa dressing rooms the beauty products were not Champney branded. The toner, cleanser and moisturiser was cheapo stuff that my local gym supplies so I was very dissapointed. But I guess this is why for Tring you need to pay an extra £25 supplement which we were not charged in Forrest Mere. So maybe its a good thing?
I'm definitely going back, this time I will be going to Henlow in May and I can't wait.
