I apologise if this is a long review, but a lot happened in a short time. First, the good: *The building and part of the world Slimeria is in is really lovely. I stayed in the garden suite, and it was really nice. I took my own Epsom salts and had a bath each night and as the 'spa' charge...

Dear Guest, What a great result you achieved, 6 days week. However, you have sold yourself short, on looking at your form, you actually lost 11.5lbs here in 6 days, not 9.5lbs! So very well done. You have raised a lot of points, which we would now like to address and redress. “The good” How lovely that you enjoyed our...

Surprised 7lb over a weekend loss. Loved the exercise. Reduction in food really hard but shows we can all reduce rubbish. Very pleased as everyone was with the result. Most lots nearly a stone in a week which was unreal 😊

Dear Friend, You're so right, it's amazing what we can do without; and how fabulous that you recognise this after such a short stay with us. You were such fun to have around, threw yourself into the programme and definitely reaped the rewards. A fantastic result, so, well done, you. Keep up the good work! Just the sort of client...

If rapid, significant weight loss is your only aim, then Slimmeria will work for you and you will no doubt leave happy. A 400 calorie a day controlled diet and four hours plus exercise a day pretty much guarantees this. Many Trip Advisor clients will testify to this. I'm afraid it wasn't for me, and for those like minded individuals...

Just returned from my 3rd visit to Slimmeria. Slimmeria is housed in a detached property in the middle of the countryside in Crowhurst and is comfortable and welcoming. There were 12 other like minded people there during my stay and we all worked together encouraging each other every step of the way. The food is vegan to help with the...

An intense week with a highly disciplined regime that brought marvellous results. Perhaps the best feature of all though, was a superb team of fellow retreaters, whose bon-homie and team spirit was brilliant. I was a touch disappointed with the lack of warmth in the ambience of the accommodation but that is almost churlish because I went for what I...

Excellent retreat to focus mind and body in a friendly, no frills atmosphere. Met some great people and came back completely re-juvenated! Lovely countryside and places to walk to or visit. A good combination of seaside/antiques shops/ country feel.
