Spa Weekend

Late January, I went on a much needed spa weekend for a friends birthday. In the midst of moving house... worrying about the money it was costing to move house, work and everyday life I was frazzled. I was pleased however that this trip had been all paid for (for a bargain £100) back in October the year before, so I was free to enjoy the hotel for no more cost! 
The break was at the Mercure Hotel in Brands Hatch , which was a five minute drive from my house (unbeknown to me previously!). Included in the price was a spa treatment, twin hotel room, dinner of up to £20 off the menu or a set three course menu and all you can eat breakfast and full use of the spa facilities.
Dinner was lush... there was such a big group of us so loads of us had lots of different things. Above I chose the burger and chips for dinner (chips served in a bucket=brownie points!) and chose the Baked Alaska for my dessert; both were lush! 
I did however have to steal some of my Mum's Apple & Blackberry Crumble!
On the first day, we went and used the jacuzzi and pool. I tried the steam/sauna but having a cold made me feel like I couldn't breath! The whole facilities were fantastic, with beds to lounge on, powerful hairdryers in the changing rooms and complimentary minty shower gel.
Breakfast the next morning was gorgeous... I quite literally would go back for the breakfast!!!
On the Sunday, we had our spa treatments. I chose a facial simply because I'd never had a professional facial before, and the treatment included Murad products. Oh there was also a starbucks serving bar, which made the most gorgeous hot chocolate! I would absolutely love to go back again for a weekend treat, and for my first spa experience, I was especially pleased! I'd love to know what spas you've visited, because obviously I'm on the look out to go again now!
