Every year my mum’s birthday and Mother’s Day fall around the same weekend so this year I thought it would be the perfect chance to take her for her very first spa day! Now my mum isn’t a big fan of pampering herself or spending anytime on herself at all really. She day in and day out strives to please everybody else so I thought what better treat than a spa.
After browsing the internet I decided to take her to The Norton Park Hotel, Winchester. Complete with an ESPA spa. The package was an absolute steal and for £105 per person included the following:
-A nights stay in the Norton Hotel
-Access to the spa and all its facilities for both days
-A complimentary bottle of Rose Fizz on arrival
-1x1hour treatment or 2 1/2 hour treatments
-Breakfast and Lunch buffet style
-Dinner invitation to the value of £28 per person
Now usually when a deal is this good there’s a catch or a T&C that no-one ever reads but always gets caught out by but in this case there is no catch to T&C but it should come with a hazard warning… Their online booking system for the treatments is COMPLEX and gets booked up VERY quickly so leave plenty of time to get your treatments in. It took me around and hour to work out the perfect combination of times and treatments for me and mum.
Other than that minor hiccup the spa was amazing! The food quality was incredible throughout and the spa treatments were amazing! We both has a full body salt and oils scrub on the first day to detoxify our skin and then a massage on the second day. The facilities in the hotel are good, the swimming pool is a little small but perfect for a little swim up. There’s a steam room and sauna (which I must say I am getting used to as I never used to like them at all!)
We drank wine, we pampered, we chatted and even had time to catch up on an episode of Eastenders (she’s a die hard fan)!
I’m confident when I say I she loved it. She loved it so much she’s decided next year she wants to do a spa treat again and is going to make her birthday last a whole week (she’s starting to sound like me). I’m also confident when I say that this spa weekend was probably one of the best deals I’ve ever seen in the spa world and would definitely recommend it to anyone who just wants to get away and be pampered!
The offer is on until June and is available in lots of different Q hotels up and down the country so definitely go check it out HERE! Its prefect for a girly weekend/hen party or if you just need an excuse to get away!
On a side note I REALLY need to get better at photographing things to make my blog more animated!
Happy Birthday/Mothers Day mum… you deserve it!
