Just back from a brief de-tox and re-tox on a 24 hour spa deal, close to home. I enjoyed 2 swims and lots of steaming with a head and shoulder massage to boot, which I hope served to stimulate my hair follicles! Interesting spa – the first time I have had a “treatment” where no questions were asked about health and any medical conditions. Wonder if they just looked at me and knew that couldn’t possibly do anything that would worsen my health!
The remainder of the time was spent wining and dining – preceded by cocktails. We were treated to “Ruthie Specials” – gin, elderflower and prosecco which, rather like Pimms, slipped down very easily but packed a silent and knockout punch!
The hotel seemed very proud of its large comfy beds with soft sheets, plump pillows, body hugging duvets and “indulgent mattress toppers”. Doesn’t this cover most pillows, duvets and sheets? All rooms also offer the Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage programme. This comprises a “relaxing aromatherapy kit to help aid a good night’s sleep”. Whether it was the Sleep Advantage programme, the cocktails or the massage – I was out like a light.
Now home and exhausted from all this relaxation.
