Very Disappointing

"My mum and I had arranged a special day in town together, this was to include treatments at Dawson spa. My elderly mum had made the bookings. We arrived at 2:50pm for our 3pm appointments when we were told that our appointment had in fact been for 2:30pm and we were now too late. I asked why they had not phoned, they had in fact called my mum 15minutes beforehand. My mum had missed the call but rang back immediately, however the number she called back connected her to the hotel reception that didn't know of any call. We quickly headed to the spa and were told it was too late. I am 6 months pregnant and my elderly mum had made her way into town. I wouldn't have minded so much if the lady in the spa had been sympathetic or even just polite. I realise it was our mistake but customer service was terrible and handled very badly."

Excellent Experience

"I received one of the monthly special packages while on holiday in Dublin. The facilities were very clean, warm, and tranquil. I felt relaxed from the moment I walked in the door. The massage was exceptional as was the body treatment and the hot shower afterwards. Ian did a fantastic job! The price was extremely reasonable and what you get exceeds the value by far. I recommend the Dawson Spa to anyone in and around Dublin as well as recommending Ian. Overall outstanding experience."
