WILL YOU BE CLOSING THE SPA DURING THE REFURBISHMENT
There are no plans to close the spa in its entirety, but there will be times when some facilities will be limited or unavailable for health and safety reasons or for building works at certain periods.

No finalised decisions have been made about which facilities will be available when.

WILL SPA MEMBERS GET A REDUCTION IN FEES DURING THE REFURBISHMENT
This is currently under discussion. To the best of our ability – spa members will still get discounts and offers both during and post-refurbishment, although it does depend on the availability of certain services and facilities at certain times. The loyalty programme is currently under discussion.
