An Overnight Spa Stay at Titanic Spa, Huddersfield – Review

A Spa Stay at Titanic Spa, Huddersfield, Review – Last week I visited the Titanic Spa in Huddersfield for the second time.  We stayed over in one of their mezzanine apartments – more on that further down this post.  Titanic Spa is just off the M62 and easy to get to from York, Leeds or Manchester. 

The spa is within a restored 20th-century textile mill, whose ground floor is given over to the spa, with apartment style accommodation above. The spa itself is huge. There is a large indoor pool with an integrated bubble pool. At the pool side there is a sauna and steam room as well as large modern changing rooms. (The lockers are the type where you set your own pin, so there is no need for money or a key band).

**I have taken as many of my own photos as possible, but will sometimes use the spa’s own rather than get lynched taking photos where people are in their swimsuits!

In a large room overlooking the pool is a big, well equipped gym. Not that I visited it mind, I am all about the pool and experience rooms!  Outside there is lots of comfortable seating, which must be lovely in the summer, especially if you are on a spa break and socialising with friends. There is an outdoor hot tub which is clearly popular all year round too.

At the other end of the spa are the treatment rooms. I had a divine facial and felt really looked after. The treatment bed was very modern too and could change shape to be more of a recliner than a flat bed, which is so much more comfortable for treatments like facials or head massages. I often suffer with backache on a flat bed, so this was fabulous! The room was low-lit, as well as warm and cosy but a hot water bottle was also placed upon me to keep me snug (it’s a nice reassuring weight, like having a cat curled on top of you – sorry for the image if you are not keen on cats though!!).



My therapist explained what would happen throughout the facial and was happy to answer my questions about the products during. She also made a note for me of what products were used. Don’t panic though, there is no hard sell – she gave me a list of everything and advised what time the shop was open in the foyer if I did indeed wish to buy.

Heat and Ice Experience at Titanic Spa

After a lovely relaxing facial, I headed into the heat and ice experience. There are several hot and cold experience rooms here including saunas and steam rooms.  Also, in the centre, for the very brave (or foolhardy!) there is a cold plunge pool. I didn’t try it!  There are several experience showers too and an icy cold drench bucket (tip it onto yourself and try not to shriek!).

Oh, and there are three foot baths too for a bit of a chill in between the experience rooms!



After our stint in the heat and ice experience we headed to the restaurant for our ‘light lunch’ that was included in the spa package we were on. There was a choice of three salads and four ‘warm dishes’.   All very healthy as befits a spa (though I wouldn’t have turned down a nice medium rib eye with chips at this point!). I’d recommend adding a side to your lunch if you are hungry. The new potatoes were very nice and a good sized portion. The restaurant, like the rest of the spa is contemporary and well maintained, with a light and welcoming decor.



The relaxation room at the Titanic Spa is different from any others I have been in. It’s huge for a start, with countless beanbags and blankets to snuggle on and under.  There are also two bed loungers with little directional lights, which are perfect for reading one of the many current magazines available. (Loved this, complete decadence to lounge with a magazine for half an hour, I never get to do this!!).



Review of the 1 Bedroom Mezzanine Apartment


On this occasion we got to experience an overnight stay at Titanic Spa in their one bedroom mezzanine apartment.  Do check their website for offers as we were booked in on a Sunday night offer that was very reasonably priced, included our spa day, treatment, overnight stay and lunch, dinner and breakfast the following day.  Excellent value.

The one bedroom apartments are large and modern with the bedroom being on a mezzanine level.  In the bedroom we had twin beds, with the main bathroom next door.

The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of towels, pillows and storage for our things.  The bathroom was very contemporary with a shower over the bath.

Nice selection of products too if you have forgotten your own.

Downstairs there is a sofa bed, meaning that the apartment will sleep up to four (perfect for groups of friends or a hen night).   Our table was ready set up for the three of us, which I think is a very pretty touch.  You can see in the below photo there is a large window with a door to the (large) balcony.

And below is the view from our balcony.



The kitchen in the apartment is large and stocked with (more than) everything you could ever need, including an oven, fridge, microwave and kettle etc.

Continental breakfast is taken in the room and is there when you check in.  This included croissants, jams, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, biscuits, milk and orange juice.

The hot drinks selection was similarly well stocked.



Evening Meal at Titanic Spa

In the evening of our stay we had dinner in the Titanic restaurant.  Two courses were included in the package, though you could pay a little extra for a third course (which we did!).  I’m sharing food  photos as I always like to see these in reviews.  We ordered vegetable gyozas to start:

Followed by lime roasted chicken breast served with a Goan coconut curry sauce.



While one of my friends tried the Chinese marinated pork belly strips.

We then all finished our meal with a trio of cheesecakes (very nice!).



After dinner we headed into the very comfortable Champagne bar for cocktails (well, it would have been a shame not to!).

In summary, it’s a fabulous spa with the heat and ice area being its crowning glory.  Do check out their seasonal deals for very good prices that won’t break the bank!



Titanic Spa invited us to visit and review, but as always, all opinions are my own.
