Last week one of my best friends and I decided that it was time for some overdue pampering and headed off to the Hilton at St. George's Park, which is actually conveniently located right next to our home town! I'd been to St. George's Park a couple of times for work events, but never actually stayed over or used the spa facilities before.

On arrival we opted to upgrade to an executive room, meaning that we had a slightly nicer room and access to the executive lounge, which offered free drinks and canap├ęs throughout the evening. Our room had a beautiful view over the grounds (St. George's Park is set in stunning countryside), some of the comfiest beds I'd ever slept in, a ginormous telly, and a gorgeous bathroom. There was wifi throughout, and you could set your music to play through in to the bathroom, too. I was pleased to see Peter Thomas Roth products stocked in the bathroom, as I'm a big fan.

On our first day, we headed straight down to the spa for our treatments. The entire experience was tailored to our personal preferences. Initially, we were given a range of four scents to smell, and then advise which we were most drawn to. Each scent was a blend of essential oils, designed to target various needs of the body. I selected the Indian blend, which I was then advised was to replenish the body and draw out any impurities - exactly what I needed. Following that, we were taken in to our individual treatment rooms, which had been filled with the scents of our choice.

I opted for a facial as my skin had been really playing up, and let me tell you, it was hands down the best facial I've ever had. A hand, foot, shoulder and head massage was incorporated in to the treatment, as were some deep breathing exercises using my chosen scent. By the time my 45 minutes were up, I felt more relaxed than I had done in months, and could happily have gone to sleep. A few days later and my skin, which had been in a horrible mess, was completely back to normal. At the end of the facial a ribbon laced with my chosen scent was tied to my wrist. Following the treatment, we were guided out to a relaxation area where we made use of some comfy chaise longue's, and were provided with a glass of water and herbal tea, with the tea being our chosen scent blends.

Alongside our treatments, we also had a delicious three course dinner and breakfast the next morning, before making use of the spa facilities again. Although we didn't touch the gym, we spent the following morning lounging in the pool, jacuzzi and sauna rooms, which were all beautifully finished. Our stay at St. George's Park was exactly what I needed, and we'll definitely be looking to go back in the future.
