Grayshott Health Spa is one of the very few true destination spas in the UK. Unlike at a typical hotel, visits to Grayshott are aimed at improving your health and well-being, with therapeutic treatments, healthy spa cuisine and a full range of fitness classes. Not only was the hotel named the Favorite UK Spa Retreat by the readers of Condé Nast Traveller and given a man’s seal of approval in GQ, but it has attracted rave reviews from publications like The Telegraph and The Independent, as well.
In addition to the renowned spa, Grayshott boasts tennis courts, a nine-hole golf course, a cinema, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and acres of protected gardens and orchards. With sweeping lawns adjoining 700 acres of National Trust land, Grayshott Spa promises that sublime get-away-from-it-all feeling. And with rural names like Sheep Grove and Tangle Wood among your surroundings, you know you’re in real country territory, so bring your walking boots.
Good to know
This property is adults-only.
Please note that a discretionary 7.5% service charge is payable directly to the hotel upon check-out.
Also note that the male and female spa areas are separate, but the pool is shared.
Rooms and suites
Each of the 59 suites and bedrooms are finished to an elegant and comfortable standard, with sumptuous furnishings, luxury fabrics and both modern and traditional textiles. Most of the rooms overlook the gardens and grounds. Upgrade to the Junior suite to enjoy more space, with a separate living area, two TVs and a lavish king-sized bed.
Your dining experience at Grayshott is all about balance, health and nutrition. The retreat’s executive chef and dietician have worked together to create delicious menus within the parameters of healthy eating and balanced nutrition. Gone are the days when a “spa diet” involved fasting or bland food. Here, you can benefit from a carefully balanced diet while still enjoying delicious cuisine. If you’re really serious about watching what you eat, you can book a nutritional consultation with one of the in-house nutritionists, who will create a dietary plan for you to use and take home.
Grayshott has spent more than 40 years perfecting its holistic approach to natural therapy, relaxation, exercise and nutrition to create a unique, stress-releasing environment, earning it a world-wide reputation for the quality of its therapies and treatments. The atmosphere here is relaxed, and the dress code casual – lounging in your robe and slippers is encouraged.Facilities at Grayshott include a twinkly steam room, a sauna, a hydrotherapy pool, a cold plunge pool and two swimming pools – one indoor, one outdoor (open April to September only). There’s also a cozy relaxation room, comfortable changing facilities and individual treatment rooms. It’s worth noting that the facilities are divided into male and female areas.
Just one hour from London, Grayshott’s rural Surrey location also places it close to pretty Farnham – think gorgeous little main street and nice pubs – and the enormous South Downs National Park.
How to Get There
After 3 years we were pleased to be back.
We had a package...3 days for the price of 2 days.
Great to be back..... our bedroom comfortable and clean. The shower room was great.
The restaurant was a pleasant room to have meals in. The staff were caring, considerate and attentive to all our needs.. The food: breakfast was healthy and plenty of choice. The lunch I felt could have done with more choice of fish rather than too much meat. The vegetables need an upgrade, rather messy. The dinner was always an amazing meal. Well thought out.
Our treatments were so necessary and made us feel very invigorated. The open air swimming pool was my dream; to swim in at 0730h. There was only peace and silence.
Altogether we are both looking forward to another return very soon. It just made us feel so good. Thank you Grayshot
Loved my five nights at Grayshott. Although the building is more than a little tired that is all due to change with massive upcoming investment.
ALL members of staff were helpful at all times, some going above and beyond.
Food was good and interesting, chocolate chia pudding was exceptional.
The doctor was lovely and explained things clearly.
I had a lovely junior suite which was well appointed.
Does need a much larger indoor pool, the current one is disappointing. The only shop onsite, I found the goods for sale, very boring, could be much better.
Will definitely return for a longer stay.
We booked for a week to lose weight, rebalance our gut and get better informed about what we eat and what it does to our bodies. The regime certainly does this. Truly excellent experts guiding you through with talks, one to one consultations and treatments. It is not for the faint hearted. You semi fast for 2 days, there is no caffeine, sugar, alcohol, minimal dairy and very restricted carbs. The food is very good and you eat well; just not necessarily the foods your body craves for the first few days. Prepare to feel a bit shaky, tired and generally unwell as your body gets used to the new way of eating. You become very friendly with your fellow regimers and ours was a good, supportive group. We all lost weight; around 3 to 10lbs.
Rooms and public areas are a bit tired and in need of refurbishment which is planned. The gym area is well equipped but smells a bit damp.
Staff are great from the desk to the restaurant to the cleaners to the specialists.
It is not a cheap experience but if you’re serious about investing in your health it could be a good investment.
What an absolutely amazing stay we’ve just had at Grayshott Spa.
Mum and I booked for two nights but wished we’d gone for a month!
Our rooms in the Manor House were lovely. The comfiest pillows, beds and duvet that I’ve ever known!
Heavenly massages and the best aroma facial (by Shirley) meant we were as relaxed as it was possible to be without being asleep!
Food was delicious and served by excellent waiting staff. Faultless.
The Deputy Manager, Alina, is an absolute star. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We had a couple of issues which she sorted instantly, and was kind and so helpful. Probably the best Customer Service I’ve ever experienced. She’s amazing.
The hotel and grounds are spotlessly kept. We had a great walk to Ludshott Common in the sunshine.
I couldn’t recommend a trip to Grayshott Spa more highly. We had a really perfect few days and have left feeling relaxed and very, very happy!
I walk through the doors & feel my cares fall away & I relax. I know I’m in safe hands & will be looked after with care & kindness. Food’s guilt-free & energising. Treatments=blissful, staff=lovely. 👌
