Reading has some lovely spas to relax and unwind in this January if you're feeling the post Christmas blues.

Hilton Reading Fitness Center and Pool

Finally, the Hilton Reading Fitness Center and Pool should be on your list if it isn't already.

One person shared their experience on Tripadvisor: "I have to say the massage and facial were great the ladies who did our treatments were friendly and professional I would definitely go again for a massage/facial."

Others, however, said it was disappointing so take from it what you will.

The reviewer said: "The changing rooms are dirty and basic, the swimming pool is small and freezing cold, there are 6 loungers and the padding on them smelt bad. There is a steam room and a sauna but both weren't anything spectacular."
