My Husband booked a Hotel/Spa package as an anniversary treat. We have stayed at the Feversham on a number of occasions over the past 10 years, including on an exclusive use basis. In general the staff at the spa were very nice, in particular the ladies who did our treatments were great. However, I would agree, with some of the other reviews that the robes need upgrading, along with the flip flops, which should be single use instead of plastic reusable ones and there is a general tiredness about the place, both in terms of cleanliness and fittings. Finally, I had an unfortunate experience in the bar area, but the hotel has resolved this and I believe it to be a one off. I would go back to the hotel, but I would probably not use the Spa.

My friend and I visited the Verbena Spa recently and enjoyed a “Girly Gathering” spa package.
We each had 75 minutes worth of treatments and chose the personalised facial and the back, neck and shoulder massage.
The facial was stunning, the products used are high quality and available to buy at reasonable cost.
The massage was one of the best I have ever had! Thanks to Fay!
We enjoyed lunch as part of our package and the menu was brilliant. I Had burger and skinny fries and my friend had fish and chips.

The salt steam room and outdoor pool were wonderful!

I was given a travel zoo voucher for Christmas for a spa session with a friend. Went for coffee and chat in the hotel in fact chatted most of the day!! We then had an inclusive one course enjoyable lunch. Got changed into robes and Flipflops ( provided). Went for a lovely swim in the outdoor pool then into the hot tub which could just have been a little warmer. Then inside to the heat area- steam room/ sauna. A relax in the lounge with a cup of Yorkshire tea before a facial and wonderful back massage. A very relaxing day

My sister and I were given a lovely gift of a half spa day by our family. We arrived to be greeted by a lovely receptionist who explained the plan for the morning. We were also shown around the spa by another pleasant staff member the spa was pleasantly presented some areas did need freshening up with painting we did notice that all the sofas in the waiting area were being measured up for being reupholstered. Before our 1st treatments we spent time in the aromatherapy room which was lovely my 1st treatment by Louise was a lovely back massage which was carried out with expertise thoroughly relaxing. We then spent time in the jacuzzi and steam room before our 2nd treatment which I had a mud wrap which was exquisite and so relaxing again carried out by Louise. We decided to have lunch in the spa area which was very well cooked and very tasty. The staff specially made it a special visit for us.
