Sorry I have been a little quiet on the blog front, just haven’t had the time to sit down 🙂 but I am back now to tell you about a lovely spa break myself and my best friend Patrice had in White’s of Wexford last weekend. We had planned a girly trip away for ages, and with our busy lives we wanted to chill and relax. We chose Wexford as neither had even been before and it was somewhere different, a new place to see. When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted in a lovely spacious and modern reception by a very friendly girl called Sarah. She chatted with us about where we were from and told us all the info regarding the hotel.
We then proceeded to our room, (possibly the only down side to the stay the room was a good walk away at the very back of the hotel) but that didn’t put us off, the room was bright, airy and very comfortable. We were advised we would have a restricted view as you could see the roof from our room but in my opinion we had a lovely view the room looked right over Wexford Harbour and if you looked up instead of down out the window that was all you could see.
We chilled in the room for a little while, before getting ready for a night out. We headed for dinner to a lovely little Chinese that was a few minutes walk from the hotel. We then went for a few drinks before heading back for some cocktails and live music in the hotel bar.
We didn’t have a late night as the break was more about relaxing. We arrived down for breakfast the next morning all rested, and ordered our breakfast from the buffet counter. Being a big child the highlight of breakfast for me was a pancake machine where you literally pressed a button & then watched as this machine made 2 pancakes for you. I definitely want one of these. 🙂
We had booked in for the Thermal Suite for 2pm so after we checked out we went for a stroll down along the harbour, it was a gorgeous day even if a little windy. We arrived back to the hotel just before 2 and as I have never been to a spa before (I know shock horror) so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We were greeted by a lovely girl called Andrea who showed us around and explained everything to us. She could not have been more helpful. We chilled and relaxed in the hydrotherapy pool, the sauna’s, the steam room, we even took a dip in the plunge pool which was literally freezing :O But when we left, I actually felt as if I had a whole new skin, I couldn’t believe how of soft and clean it was. I had presumed I would have to cover myself in moisturizer when I came out being in so much water would dehydrate the skin but I only had to apply a little and mainly to my face. I couldn’t recommend this treatment highly enough. If you are not into your facials or massages but would like some pampering then I would definitely recommend this. I will definitely be back.
One final little thing I need to mention, I left some items I had just bought in the locker of the spa, the next day I rang the spa to ask if they wouldn’t mind would they post up the items to me and I would pay the postage and packaging. The girl on the phone was so nice, and no problem doing so and wouldn’t even let me pay postage. My items arrived a few days later.Now that is customer service. I couldn’t thank the staff enough.
So there you have it guys, my stay in Wexford, if you are looking for a break away on the sunny southeast I would definitely recommend White’s of Wexford.
Lots of Love
