The Spa

Elemis is the product brand of choice at The Spa at The Chester Grosvenor, ideal as it is one of our favourites also. The spa has a handful of massage rooms and selection of treatments for the face, body, holistic rituals for body and soul, as well as finishing touches options. We had a 60 minute full body massage (£65), leaving us feel utterly soothed and relaxed. We were provided with water and sorbet provided after massage as rehydration.

The Spa has a thermal suite with a small selection of experiences to further sooth and relax. There is a relaxation room (with beds for up to 5 people at a time) where water, fruit and juice are provided. There is a foot bath area with Elemis scrubs, which we indulged in using the Frangipani scrub, which left our skin incredibly supple. We also entered the dry sauna, enjoying this with the themed shower to invigorate our skin after the massage. There is also a crystal steam room, salt grotto and ice fountain.

We found staff were friendly, attentive and professional; however we were a little disappointed at the small size of the spa and no pool or jacuzzi that we would typically expect.

The Chester Grosvenor also have a compact but not cramped fitness centre, accessible via guest room key cards. A basic selection of a previous generation of ThechnoGym equipment is provided. Whilst this certainly doesn’t compete with much larger fitness complexes, you are able to get in a good cardio or core workout and we didn’t have any problem with availability of machines or equipment.
