Its my sisters 40th birthday in December and me and my other sister are thinking if taking her on a spa day. We are looking for a decent spa, not a hotel with a pool that calls itself a spa. Budget is £100-£120ish per person and would ideally include 2 treatments and lunch. We are in Hampshire so looking for somewhere local ish.
Can anyone recommend somewhere?

Not that local- but Alexander House hotel just outside of Crawley is the best spa I've been to and sometimes has offers on spa breaks .co.uk or similar?

Bailiffscourt Hotel in Climping, West Sussex. The best spa I've ever been to, in beautiful surroundings. It's close to Arundel.

Careys Manor in the New Forest is also fantastic, with more emphasis on the treatments than the surroundings.

Nirvana Spa in Sindlesham (just south of Reading) gets my vote. It has a floatation pool and a jacuzzi the size of a swimming pool. Lunch or dinner and drinks are included too. There's a gym but I can't say I've ever left the pools!

Champneys Forest Mere have a special offer on.

Looks lovely but over budget :-(

I went to Champneys and really didn't like it. It wasn't that clean on the day I went.

Coworth Park, near Ascot. I had a £155 day, including lunch and 1.5 hour full treatment, best I've ever had. I think they have awards like best UK spa etc.

I know several people who rave about Carey's Manor. Sadly I don't have the money to go myself, but went to a wedding reception there and that was lovely so if their spa is as good as their function facilities it would be great.

I second Careys Manor in Brockenhurst - it's lovely.

Chewton Glen do a Lazy Sunday Spa day for £140 that includes one treatment and cream tea!

The champ eyes one would be effect but it's only until the end of sept

I would 2nd Chewton Glen.

And would never recommend Champneys; I think they are dreadful. Really cheap & nasty these days.

Should have said that the spa day has to be a Friday
