Rookery Retreat & Spa
Verified (?) Visited Dec 2012
Quiet location, no problem parking, very tranquil atmosphere, pleasant welcome, informative tour.
Treatment rooms well laid out, general temperature comfortable, changing rooms small but well equiped. Great shower with Elemis shower, shampoo supplied. Hair dryer & straighteners for those requiring them.
Steps to reasonably sized pool fairly steep and I was warned they could be slippery when wet. Pool overhead sprays very invigorating, with usual underwater jets. My first encounter with an Infra red sauna and I found I preferred it to the more usual type it was however quite small but as there were only a couple of other ladies there it wasn't a problem. Plenty of loungers & chairs.
My treatments were lovely, I was consulted on whether I preferred a firm massage pressure, the table well designed and when reclined for my facial my legs were elevated so that there was less stress on my lower back.
The lotions used through-out were pleasantly scented and not overwhelming unlike other spa's I have visited. Also it was pleasant surprise not to have the usual "hard sell" I was asked if I would like to be shown the products used but didn't feel pressured into doing so.
My greek salad was delicious, and there were several other choices on the menu that were most tempting.
I am already planning another visit when if the weather is nicer I look forward to trying the outdoor jaccuzi.
