In between her hectic fundraising schedule for Spinal Research and The Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation, Claire Lomas took a little time out to check out The Mere Golf Resort and Spa in Cheshire, finding that not only is it accessible, but the treatments are too good to just have one!
The Mere is a great location, not far from the M6, although once you are there it is beautiful and peaceful. The spa building is opposite the hotel and parking is easy. The exterior is very smart and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful.
The rooms are lovely and spacious with the added bonus of delicious chocolates in the room for you on arrival (although they were not there for long!) The hotel was very wheelchair accessible making it a lovely, relaxing, and hassle free break for me!
The loungers around the spa were some of the most comfortable I have found; they had adjustable backs which I love so I can change my position. The pool is a good size and the appearance of the pool and spa area is very smart. I could not get into all the thermal rooms but managed a couple. I prefer these rooms in the winter anyway so I was quite happy enjoying a bit of time out on the loungers! They have classes you can join in such as water aerobics, which my friend thoroughly enjoyed.
I had a treatment on the first day of our stay and the therapist was brilliant. As I have no sensation from the chest down she did a special mix of a facial and massage for me and it is was perfect. The couch was very comfortable and the room spacious but with a real warmth about it. I even booked another massage for the next day to help ease my shoulders after lots of hand cycling – and it certainly did that!
The food in the spa is delicious, one of the best spa restaurants I have eaten in. The hotel was also good with two choices of restaurants; there is something for everyone on the menu and you will not be disappointed!
It’s a great spa and hotel for wheelchair users making it struggle free and relaxing!
-Make sure you have lunch in the spa restaurant. I must confess I had the same on both days because it was so tasty!
-If you are having a spa treatment and are not doing the water aerobic session then book the treatment whilst that is going on as it is quite loud!
