Such a great day! We enjoyed the steam room, hot tub and pool before our relaxing facials. Will definitely go back.

The spa itself is great; the restaurant is terrible. Not worth the premium cost. Burger was over cooked, bun was stale, spinach wilted and they straight up forgot the onion/bacon jam. Even the fries were over cooked somehow. Wouldn’t recommend

I have been to this spa many times and have always walked away very happy. Obviously, prices have gone up everywhere, but Elmwood Spa's rates did not go up as much as St. Anne's (almost double now for the day spa). Honestly, I would not have booked my friends and I in unless I had heard about the 40th anniversary promotion of a complimentary lunch. I have had their lunches on my birthday, also free of charge and I just love them. I will say, they should include a cold or hot beverage to this offer just to make it complete. It goes a long way to offer even a coffee free of charge. Overall, my friends and I had a fabulous time. I really enjoy the water therapies, the comfy robe, the slippers, the teas, cucumber water, etc. My massage was excellent. All the tension in my shoulders was gone. Checking out took a while. Only one attendant with 4 of us checking out. I will definitely return because it is a peaceful and relaxing environment, tucked away in the middle of the city. Being in the city too, makes it easy to get to. We drove, but public transit is just fine especially when you can do a little shopping at the Eaton's centre or along Yonge St after this awesome day at the spa!

It was a joy to be back at the spa after an absence of 2 years and I have no regrets!

The reception was heart warming and staff friendly as usual.

Beautiful setting and I was looking forward to a relaxing day with a friend. I have had massage therapy on a regular basis by a number of practitioners for over 20 years. This was like a bonus massage in my schedule…. Except 3 days later I still hurt…. Enough to take Advil. The massage was very deep and the therapist incorporated some uncomfortable arm stretches. Afterwards, thanks to the warm soothing pools I didn’t really feel bad until the next morning my neck felt puffy and bruised and my shoulder started to ache. I get the impression that the therapists are on assembly line type of schedule…. Every 60 minutes a new stranger and they seem to have a regimental routine, not checking on patient comfort. Overall, it was probably the most rough massage I have ever had. If you have a high pain tolerance, beware. On a positive note the water pools are wonderful…. They bumped the rating up one level. Also, before writing this review, I emailed the spa but there has been no response. I will not be returning as there are other options where I have had a more pleasant experience.

It was my first time attending and a completely last minute decision! I called in the morning and was given an appointment for that same afternoon! I got to experience the whirlpool room and steam room, with an amazing massage for the perfect mental health day break in the city. Would totally do it again!

Visited with a friend after Covid. Elmwood is an Oasis in the centre of a buzzing busy metropolitan for blissful escape with a pampering massage and water therapy experience… ahhhh. Do miss the complimentary hot tea servicing the guests with 6 different blends of fragrant teas. But the staff service was excellent going out of their ways to help solve the smallest issues.

I was in for a visit for a day spa package. I had an amazing experience, as always. The water therapy were also great. Sadly people did not keep their tone down in the spa which made relaxation more difficult in the water therapy section.
