Spa in the City! Sienna Spa at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel Manchester Review

I am obsessed with Groupon deals! It’s one of those sites where you sign up for free and you get daily offers for your town. So far I have used it for meals and for 2 treatments and I’ve been really happy with it (not been paid by the way to promote them! Just happy to get a bargain!).

I bought a deal for Sienna Spa, where I paid £20 for £50 worth of Spa treatments. Sienna Spa, located in the 5 star Radisson Edwardian is not cheap, so it’s basically one treatment, if that.

I booked in for a revitalising legs treatment, because I have quite tired, achy pins.

Booking was a bit of a bother at first – it was hard getting an appointment for 2 weeks so I had to wait!

Finally I got to have my treatment – and I have to say, it was an excellent Spa and a really nice way to lose a few hours.

I arrived an hour early – I am so glad I did because with a treatment, you are allowed to use the gym or the spa facilities, which is a pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna room. I was led into a relaxation room.

It’s a smallish area where you can help yourself to apples, orange juice and water. There’s also magazines but it’s too dark in there to read anyway!
I filled out the consultation sheet, then was led to the Spa area where I was given a locker, towel, slippers and dressing down. I was told to return to the relaxation room a few minutes before the treatment was due…

I am rubbish at going to Spas, I really am. I have no idea about what the correct procedure is, how I’m supposed to behave, where I’m supposed to put my things etc. Yet I felt quite comfortable here – things were explained quite well and everything was thought out for you – lockers led the changing room led to showers, led to spa and clear instructions everywhere.

After I got changed into my swimwear, I got into the Spa area where it was nice and quiet. I used the steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, then three burly hairy men turned up and decided it would be good to bomb about in the water. Eek.

After my session of just mooching about, I went back to have a shower, washed my hair (fab conditioner in the showers!) dried off and had my treatment.

The leg treatment was quite good, but not what I expected.

I wanted quite a deep massage to be honest – I can handle the pain because Mr C gives me loads of leg massages and he presses extra hard to be mean. Instead it was more of a exfoliation, followed by wrap, then a masque, then a quick massage and a tingly leg gel was applied (I can see this being my next obsession!).

Still, my skin felt great and my legs felt lighter – but no, I wouldn’t go for that specific treatment again, it felt too superficial.

I returned to the changing area, dried and straightened my hair and got changed – that was it! Felt lovely and relaxed.

The leg treatment was £55, so I paid an extra £5 on top of my voucher.

So to round up –

Pros:

- Nice staff, professional too
- Spa facilities are great
- Treatment was nice, I really liked the ambience

Cons:

- The towel and dressing gown were really crunchy – could benefit from some fabric softener?!
- The showers were really stinky – like a public toilet. The smell was coming from the drain – it was pretty horrid. They were a bit dirty generally, bits of hair on the floor etc.

Verdict:

I really liked this spa, it’s also smack bang in the centre so I will go back for a pamper, because the price you pay includes mooching about in the spa area – so you can make the whole experience last for longer and really relax!
