To spa or not to spa, that is the question…
If you’ve stayed at a Macdonald spa resort before, you probably think you know what to expect from the Alveston Manor Hotel. But while the range of treatments is largely the same, it is the surroundings that really make this place unique.
This thoroughly modern spa is set inside a Tudor style manor house in the land of Shakespeare – Stratford Upon Avon. A major refurbishment in 2014 has spruced up all of the building’s original features and added a few 21st century amenities too, like the spa’s relaxation suite, private treatment rooms, sauna, steam room and pool.
The Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel spa itself is equally suitable for day visitors and overnight guests, and treatments are competitively priced, so you can indulge in your favourite massage or facial on a monthly basis without troubling your bank manager.
Among the spa’s most popular treatments are the hot stone massages (also available as a couple’s treatment), the intensive (and effective) Elemis facials, and the detoxifying Cellutox Aroma Spa Ocean Wrap.
The spa’s partnership with Elemis also means that it can offer the brand’s celebrated Skin Intelligence for Men range, which includes two anti-aging and detoxing facials specially formulated for male skin, and deep tissue muscle and back massages, which can repair even the most exhausted bodies.
With treatments for mothers to be, bridal parties, men and women, there is something for everyone at the Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel Spa. For literary fiends who are looking for something more, just ask the hotel staff about the history of the building…
