It is the Daffodil Hotels & Spa’s unique belief that pure, uncensored relaxation can only be achieved once all sense of reality has been left behind. The Spa is exclusively open to Daffodil Hotel Residents and Day Spa Clientele.

The hotel regrets that owing to the nature of the facilities, children are not permitted in the Spa.

Facilities Include:

Rasul Mud Room
The Mud Rasul allows the bather to apply natural mineral mud product to the face & body before the room lighting is gently dimmed & its relaxing fibre optic lighting fills the ceiling.
The bather sits in the enfolding warmth of heated individual seats, before steam, infused with relaxing aromas, is introduced into the Rasul. The warmth of the steam opens the pores & allows the enriched products to enter the body, where it stimulates the blood flow, helps revive the tissue & stimulates the lymphatic system.
After approx 30 mins the treatment is brought to an end when the lights change and a warm shower mist descends from the ceiling to gently wash away the remaining product.

The Daffodil Spa offers a stunning complement of therapeutic & rejuvenating face & body care treatments. Clients may choose from a variety of treatments, which include traditional massage alongside ritualistic massage therapies from around the world.

Steam Room
Whether you prefer, the earthy aromas of the sauna or the steamy atmosphere infused with revitalising scents of our steam room; indulge in them both at the Daffodil Spa.

Relaxation Room
At The Daffodil Spa, they are great believers in a bit of ‘you’ time, so unwind and while away an hour or two in the Tepidarium.
Specifically named so, as tepid air induces relaxation, with every comfort and need pandered to pre or post-therapy. We don’t even mind if you just fancy a quick snooze!

Thermal Pool
The indulgent thermal pool will be different than any other you have experienced (it's nothing like a swimming pool!), whether you have tired legs from walking the surrounding fells or simply need some time off from the hectic lives we all lead – the thermal pool is the perfect tonic as you move from each section allowing the water jets to target different areas of the body.
