This is definitely one of the best spa's in the city. I discovered it through a deal on wayspa.com and I've been back so many times since. The service is great and the treatments are done perfectly. It's a great place to go to relax. What's even better is that their prices aren't super high. RMT massages start around $75 and a pedicure goes for $40. If you book multiple treatments at once they knock 10% off your treatments. It's fantastic. It's located right in Toronto's Yorkville so you can go shopping or have a nice meal before or after you're at the spa. You can either book directly with the spa and get gift certificates through them OR check wayspa.com for their monthly deals/specials. (When using wayspa my suggestion is call the spa first and make your appointment, book it on wayspa and then call back and give them the wayspa number. This way you can guarantee you get the appointment you want before purchasing it!)
I heard good things about this place so decided to try it. I bought a spa certificate back in April with the intention to use it "when I need it most" (you know those times, right? :) ). The cert had the expiration date by end of August, so wasn't in any rush.
That "time" came about at the beginning of July, after a really stressful time at work. I called the spa to make an appointment, but was told (relatively rudely I'd say) that my certificate was not good. Dumbfounded, I started asking more questions and I found out that they had too many of those certificates sold and there's too long a waiting line. So they decided not to honor them anymore! And because it wasn't bought directly from them, they won't refund it either.
So here I was, in need of a spa, money lost, and very upset. I gave it a search on the web and discovered I wasn't the only one that got that "treatment".
I highly NOT RECOMMEND this place! There's so many good places in this city! Go somewhere you can be treated right. After all, you go to a spa for Relaxation, not the other way around!
Reasonable prices, relaxation, and serenity is what Summerhill spa is all about. It's a small spa located on Cumberland St. which is right behind Bloor St. Although it's small, the decor is lovely and gives the spa a very tranquil atmosphere. The spa menu is very inexpensive with a basic facial starting at $50, manicures starting at $25 and back massages starting at $75/ hour.
I got a facial at the spa a while ago with one of my girlfriends. My friend loved everything, especially the face and shoulder massage. As for me, I enjoyed everything except for the face massage. It wasn't too comfortable, mostly because my face is so boney and don't have much skin to press so it wasn't really their fault. Overall, I still had a good time and am looking forward to go there again (but I will be getting a pedicure next time).
