“Time for pampering”

published 03/07/2008

ProExcellent staff, well organised, lots of personal ...

ConsExpensive, dining could be improved

Hoar Cross Hall is a Spa Resort based in a stately home in Staffordhsire. It is a grade II listed building, built around the 1860's and set in grounds of 100 acres. I visited here two years ago when I decided to book an indulgent spa break for myself as a treat after leaving a very stressful job...

ConsDoesn't come cheap

Hoar Cross Hall is a health spa near Uttoxeter in Staffordshire. Recently a mate and I treated ourselves to a day there. The place itself is beautiful. It is a very, very old hall the size of a stateley home in gorgeous grounds. The grounds include a wood, various lawns, a topiary garden and a...

ProA fabulous, fabulous experience

ConsSlightly tacky and quite expensive

I recently gave up smoking and having always wanted to have a spa break, chose to use the money I had saved for this. I went for two nights in June and really enjoyed it - to the extent that I returned from 4 nights last week. The place itself is quite easy to find from the directions given and...

I went to Eden Day Spa which is adjacent to Hoar Cross Hall with my friend for a girl's day out and it was very relaxing and very highly recommended! The changing rooms are very clean and comfortable and in your locker you're given two towels and a very nice robe which I wore for the whole day...

ConsPoor spa hygeine, expense,slightly tacky

Hoar Cross Hall is set in a Grade II listed stately home ruined only by some of the tacky touches to its décor and the insistence of the owner to surround you with vanity portraits of himself. There's no escaping the gloating of this self-made millionaire. In case you should have overlooked these...

Satisfactory

published 13/11/2007

Arrived on the friday night and stayed during saturday. Rooms were ok- beds really soft and not so comfortable---massage i had was good, hower pool area and steam rooms were very busy. It was difficult to relax as there were loads of screaming woman shouting about how cold the plunge pool was ect. (maybe they were just excited-i think its a haven for hen parties). I think there should be more emphasis on people respecting that others would like to relax. Or maybe I have been too spoilt in the past. On a plus side the meal on the Friday night was good, but had to queue for 15 mins for lunch on the saturday. Go to a local spa and save your money

ProNone

ConsExpensive, Loud building work, Staff apathy

I booked for a five day break here, having read the glowing reviews on Ciao & elsewhere. I wanted, indeed was paying for, a few quiet days of pampering - but arrived to find a massive building site, complete with noisy mechanical diggers. The room we were first given looked out onto the site! The...

Their on-site nurse administered burn cream and advised against using any of the facilities e.g pool, sauna, steam rooms etc. This of course ruined the relaxed experience day we...
