Mollington Banastre Spa

To celebrate us all graduating from university this year, my housemates and I decided to go to a spa for the day. We looked on Groupon and found a deal for around £20 each for a spa day and prosecco afternoon tea at Mollington Banastre Spa near Chester.

We spent the majority of the day in the pool and the jacuzzi, chatting and catching up properly with each other. Mollington Banastre has one large pool with a jacuzzi on the side, plus two saunas and a steam room. It wasn't busy at all so we had the pool to ourselves the majority of the time. We were also given complimentary towels and robes.

The best part of the day was obviously the afternoon tea. We were each given a glass of prosecco, and then two huge stands full of cakes and sandwiches were put on our table. The sandwiches were smoked salmon, ham and mustard and egg - they were all delicious, but I particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon. We were also each given a profiterole, lemon cake, a brownie, and a scone. The profiteroles weren't that nice, but the rest of the cakes were really good. The scones were particularly amazing as they were still warm when they were given to us, and they were served with jam and clotted cream.

The spa also offered treatments including massages, facials, waxing and nail painting, but none of us had anything as we are still students after all. Mollington Banastre isn't the grandest spa I've ever been to, but it was a really good place to visit on a budget and it had everything that we needed, plus the staff were really lovely and helpful. And the afternoon tea was incredible - we were so full afterwards!
