Spa is gorgeous, all the facilities you could ever need. Rooms are lovely and very, very comfy!

“The food, wow! Delicious 10/10 every time. Staff are very friendly and attentive. If you are looking for an overnight spa break this is the place to go!”

Another reviewer commented: “Another amazing day at the Spa at Ribby Hall. Thermal journey has lots to offer. Had the best massage ever thanks to Anna. She was very professional and put at ease straight away. Felt so relaxed and pampered. Great massage, really hitting those aches. Felt fantastic afterwards. Thanks very much Anna. Would highly recommend it.”

Another commented: “This SPA is outstanding and great value. The staff are lovely and there were some really nice touches. We were offered to change robes and towels at anytime. There is nothing worse than sitting having a leisurely lunch in a wet robe. So this was very welcomed by myself and my friend.

“It also wasn't overcrowded and there was plenty of sun loungers and beds inside and outside. So no need to reserve a bed as there was more than enough. Which is often a downside to most spas. Lunch was outstanding and filled us up for the rest of the whole day.

“I would highly recommend this spa and I can't wait to go back.”
