Express Spa Day with Lunch at Rowhill Grange
I booked this spa day for myself as a treat and used the e-voucher facility - the e-voucher arrived immediately and within 30 minutes I had booked the spa day for the following week. The staff are wonderful at Utopia Spa - very helpful and made me feel relaxed and welcome. I arrived at 9am and was given my itinerary for the day In a small lounge area, including what time my massage and lunch were booked for. complimentary coffee, tea, herbal teas and flapjacks were offered on arrival, as well as a 2-course menu to pre-book lunch (starter and main course) which had 3 or 4 choices for each course (cannot remember exactly)!. The facilities were first class - excellent changing rooms with hairdryers, GHD straighteners, shampoo/body wash and conditioner. Lockers, towel and robe are provided and allocated on arrival. Flip flop style shoes should be worn but these can be purchased on arrival for a small amount. The saunas are located within the changing rooms and the steam room is located by the hydro pool. The hydro pool is amazing - good, warm temperature - and had jets operated by push buttons. There was a row of airbeds in one side of the pool, a powerful tap style jet pouring into the pool, a fan style jet and a waterfall. at the side of the hydro pool is a warm jacuzzi, also operated by push button. I did not go upstairs, but this is where the main swimming pool is situated.The showers in the changing rooms are lovely - very clean and quite powerful. My massage was booked at 12pm and was amazing - very soothing music is played throughout, the lights are dimmed and a choice of aroma is given - relaxing (lavender) or uplifting (citrus).My lunch was booked for 12.30pm and was delicious - I chose tomato, mozzarella and pesto salad to start and salmon with 3 beans and chorizo for the main course. you can purchase drinks with your meal but still or sparkling water is provided, as well as a choice of breads. The lunch room was a lovely, bright conservatory and again the staff were very welcoming. Robes can be worn to lunch! I did not use the gym or fitness classes on offer and left just after 1pm feeling on top of the world, although the spa can be used up to 3pm. Recommended items to take are 2 sets of swimwear, flip flop style shoes, clean trainers and sportswear if you wish to use the gym. I loved this day and loved the spa and my only regret is perhaps not booking an additional treatment! I would recommend this day highly.

I bought this for myself, my sisters and mum for Christmas. It's been the best day we have had together for a very long time. The spa pools are lovely and the back massage was lovely and so relaxing. The staff were very helpful. We had an amazing day and we are now looking at booking again.

I'd always wanted to try out Rowhill Grange and my friends and I weren't disappointed! Tea and cake on arrival, lovely day in the spa and having massages and 2 course lunch to finish it all off. Would totally recommend having some dessert as well, the chocolate tarte was great! Can't wait to get the girls together and do it again :0)

Had a lovely day at Rowhill Grange. The massage was one of the best I have had. Lunch was delicious - I had smoked salmon to start followed by Sea bass. Highly recommended.
