Before choosing to stay with us our guests often have a few questions they need the answers to. Here you will find frequently asked questions to assist you.

These have been grouped into sections for leisure, spa and health club to help you find the most relevant information quickly.


How do I book with Hand Picked Hotels?

You can book your stay via the website using the gold BOOK NOW button which you will find in the top right hand corner of the screen. Alternatively you can browse our hotel rooms and book an overnight stay here.

What is check in and check out time?

At all Hand Picked Hotels, you may check into your room from 3pm and we ask you to check out by 11am on the day of departure. While you are welcome to request an early check-in, unfortunately we cannot guarantee this as your room may not be ready. You are also welcome to request a late check-out; again we cannot guarantee this and if the hotel can accommodate the request there may be an additional cost.

What are the spa day / spa break / treatment timings?
For spa days and breaks, an itinerary detailing all of your timings is issued upon arrival. Spa treatments are scheduled between 10am and 4 or 5pm depending on location. We recommend arrival between 9 and 9:30am to maximise your experience. 

What is included in my spa day or spa break?
Spa days include full use of all spa facilities, at least one luxurious treatment, and either afternoon tea or a spa lunch. Depending on which spa day you choose, there are also many additional inclusions such as Champagne and extra treatments.

Spa breaks include the same as the spa days, with the addition of overnight accommodation and breakfast the following morning. Depending on your choice of break, you may also enjoy dinner in the evening and an additional lunch course.

Which facilities can I use?
If you are visiting on a spa day or spa break, you can enjoy full use of the facilities. If you are having a treatment, you are welcome to use the spa café or spa bar. Should you wish to use all of the facilities, you can upgrade to one of our spa day or break packages.  

How many people can I book in one group?
You are welcome to include up to 6 people per group.

What is the minimum age for a spa day or treatment?
The majority of our spa offerings are for over 18s only. Children between the ages of 16 to 17 may undergo manicures, pedicures and facials if they are supervised in the same room by a parent or guardian. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted to use or accompany any persons over 18 attending the spa, or use the facilities attached.

Do I need money for a locker?
No, you do not need any money for the locker. You will either be given your own key, or you will be able to set a code of your choosing. 

What should I wear/bring?
All you need to bring is your swimming attire and some comfortable clothing. You are welcome to bring your own flip-flops, however we have flip-flops available for purchase on arrival should you require them. We suggest that you leave any jewellery at home as it may need to be taken on and off throughout the day.
