Home truths

  • The design and decor of the hotel is very modern and minimalist. We liked it though we acknowledge it might not be to everyone's taste.
  • The car park is set a 100 yards or so from the actual entrance to the hotel though you can drop off luggage at the front door.
  • We found the flip flops for the spa a little confusing, but just ask the spa team and they will show you. It might have just been us!

Bliss!

AL, Suffolk, stayed: August 2019

Booked as a last minute break to celebrate our anniversary. Staff are amazing, restaurant and bar are gorgeous (lots of cocktails consumed!). Spa was lovely but the hydropool was a little run down with head supports broken/missing and the swimming pool was exceptionally cold. It was also disappointing that there was no availability for any treatments during our stay.
Overall though, a brilliant night planning our next stay!

Great for relaxation, but...

PM, Essex, stayed: July 2019

Lifehouse is a lovely hotel in superb grounds. It's a very relaxing place to be. Food quality is excellent, although there could be a little more choice. All staff are friendly & helpful. The rooms are nice, but some could do with updating and I wouldn't class them as luxurious. Ours had a nice walk in shower and a large flat screen tv, but was looking a little tired.
Treatments are brilliant, the relaxation areas are too. The general pool, sauna area is also very nice, but again. Could do with a refresh.

relaxing but dinner very late and long wait - with a bigger kitchen would cope better

Nimmy, Berkshire, stayed: June 2019

restaurant staff very helpful in trying to satisfy our healthy requests.
your website is misleading by saying you offer healthy options - available at dinner but not breakfast -
no multigrain sourdough but mass produced awful bread - however beautiful porridge and poached eggs with good quality smoked salmon - poor selection of fruit at breakfast and no cheese.
no healthy option dessert in the evening.
thank your chef for finding me a piece of sourdough from the day before which he toasted - it appears
you only offer spordough at lunchtime!
with a little tweaks our dining experience could have memorable for my 70th birthday - the hake dish was amazing and i would the receipe please - if these little changes are made for a discerning customer like me i would certainly return and recommend life house to my health club and family and friends

Our stay at Lifehouse Spa

Lewis, Hertfordshire, stayed: May 2019

We enjoyed a very relaxing night stay at Lifehouse Spa. It s set in lovely grounds and everything about it met our expectations. The Mulberry rooms looking out onto the gardens were well worth it and the food was excellent. Would highly recommend and we would definitely stay again.

We loved Lifehouse Spa and hotel, especially the beautiful gardens. A great deal that included dinner, wine, overnight stay and breakfast. We could stay in the spa until 6pm on the second day which was wonderful!
