The Brooklands Hotel

The other week my gorgeous friend Amanda celebrated her baby's first birthday, and for her part in the event we decided we needed a little treat for her too, so we headed to the 4* boutique Brooklands Hotel conveniently located near the M3/M25 junction for a spa day.

We chilled out in the stunning relaxation room looking out onto the Mercedes Benz Word race track (some where to send your other half if you need to busy them!) catching up and reading magazines whist we waited to be called through for our treatments.

I opted for a Skin Calmer Facial using products by Lubatti (created by facialist Tracey Malone, sister of Jo Malone) which included a heavenly facial massage, leaving my skin feeling pampered and moisturised (£40/30 mins).

Whilst Amanda went for the Jane Scrivne Peace and Relaxation massage (£38/25 mins) and returned looking rejuvenated and chilled out.
Other treatments on offer include manicures and pedicures by Butter London and organic odourless tans by Beau Bronz.
The wooden hot tub is ideally positioned on the huge roof terrace and one of the therapists even came out to bring us towels which we had forgotten in our excitement.

To finish off our relaxation we popped into the Meditation Room to lounge on the gently heated waterbeds before heading for lunch.
We went to the hotel's 1907 Resturant on the ground floor, but other Spa goes ate in the Spa's more casual reception area where robe and slippers are more acceptable attire! The food was yummy and the service superb, with a range of lighter meals to fine dining.

If you are coming from further afield, why not make a weekend of it staying in one of the hotel's gorgeous rooms (from £120 a night) where all beds come as kingsize as standard and are super modern and stylish with  touches that remind you of the location's race-track history.

My only disappointment was the lack of a swimming pool, which I was expecting as part of spa facilities (£25 for a non hotel guest) to compliment the other relaxation facilities, including sauna and steam room.
Let's hope there's another girlie day soon...x
