Reviews of The Haven at the Glenview
Very Relaxing, Lovely Staff!
"I booked one of the specials, a back massage and a facial which was really good value at €70, though I wouldn't normally get a massage back home. The rooms were more of a salon than what you would expect from a Spa but never the less, I was immediately made feel welcome by the Therapist who I would have to say was excellent, really friendly and attentive. The back massage was very relaxing (I'll be getting more of them in the future!) and the facial was Dermalogica which is my preferred brand and surprising given the overall price of the package. But I would have to say, the decor and the waiting facilities could probably do with being updated, it doesn't do the service justice when you are sitting in a corridor of a busy Hotel waiting for your treatments!"
"I really like this hotel, but "The Haven" is certainly not a spa! The leisure club is nice, but is at opposite end of hotel from treatment rooms, of which there are two. The treatment rooms are akin to two small neglected broom cupboards. I got a facial which incorporated a short shoulder massage, however the therapist failed to remove all of my facial scrub and proceded to massage tiny beads of sand into my shoulders and arms. Also, the supposed soothing music was way too loud - obviously to mask the fact that the rooms are tiny and you can hear the goings-on outside (rooms are off lobby to main restaurant) so I actually left "The Haven" with a thumping headache, feeling more stressed than before I went in. Totally NOT IMPRESSED!"
