Our Review for The Billesley Manor Spa Break

Published: 18th May 2011

What does it look like?

Billesley Manor stands proudly within 11 acres of stunning landscape and is reached along a long winding drive. It is a truly impressive exterior which welcomes you in.

What happens when you get there?

The Receptionist was busy with a few guests checking in but still managed to smile and was very cheerful and efficient in booking us in.

What do the bed rooms look like?

There are 72 bedrooms here some of which are in the Main House and the others in the delightful converted Cedar barns. They have all been decorated to a high standard and are clean, with all modern conveniences. My bedroom was fabulous and overlooked the Topiary Gardens which is themed on Alice of Wonderland.

What was the food like?

In one word - Heavenly - from start to finish and all washed down with a great bottle of wine! I will definitely be back for the Sunday lunch or even to enjoy afternoon tea on the terrace when the weather warms up.

What were the Spa Facilities like?

We were shown all the facilities by the friendly spa receptionist here. There is a swimming pool, a few treatment rooms, sauna and steam room. Its a very relaxing atmosphere with several loungers dotted around the pool. The great thing is that the spa lunch can be taken in the spa bistro so no having to traipse through the hotel wearing robes. It is all on your doorstep.

What were the treatments like?

I had a back massage to die for! If you visit Billesley Manor try and book a treatment because they really know their stuff here! I floated all the way home. I will definitely be making a return visit here in the summer so that I can make full use of all the facilities here , play tennis and go for long walks in the grounds.
