'Rockliffe Hall dedicates a whole 50,000 square feet to making you feel good,' sums up Anna. But it's not just the comprehensive facilities that make this a perfect destination spa, she says. It's 'the ambience, lighting, customer service, treatment standards, cleanliness... the list goes on. There's even a spa butler on hand to answer questions, help with drinks, or fetch a robe.'
