I spent this past weekend at the Grail Springs Retreat and it was overall a great experience except for the Spa Services . The premises are beautiful, even though I went at the end of the winter/start of spring season. This place is close to a quartz deposit and a lake. Therefore, you see quartz pieces all over the property...

Thank you again for your feedback which we received by email the day before this posting was listed. As you know, our Director of Guest Services made a personal call to you within minutes of receiving your email and immediately apologized and refunded the full amount for the treatments delivered unsatisfactorily. This of course was sad for us to hear...

I was really looking forward to spending 2 nights at Grail Springs; however it did not live up to my expectations. Upon arrival, I was informed that I had missed my first appointment that morning and was told that if I could prove when my appointment was, then they would reschedule it (and I assume not charge me for missing...

The retreat is tucked neatly away about 5 minutes from Bancroft, Ontario. The meals are very healthy and vegetarian but they nicely accommodate specialty diets. There is some daily activity planning. My suggestion is to, surrender yourself to the experience. You can do cleansing fasts, have many choices of spa treatments, there are hot tubs, saunas onsite, has an art...

I am only commenting on the Spa at Grail Springs as I was here for a day trip only for spa services and not to stay at the hotel: Unfortunately, I had already purchased a coupon discount for this hotel and pre-organized the entire day with friends. I did not do enough research. Please beware that New Age spirituality is...

Such a lovely property with the most wonderful staff and practitioners. I always leave with a sense of peace and a plan for getting more out of my life. Yummy food too! The hot tub looking over the lake is a particular favourite. Take the hike to the Crystal Outcrop, a truly magical place.

Wow. Going to Grail Springs was the best decision of my life. If you want spiritual fulfilment, strength and rejuvenation then Grail Springs is the place to go!

I spent two weeks at Grail Springs during the Finding You, and Happiness themed weeks. I've been home for about a month and I still feel amazing. Two weeks at Grail Springs peeled the ugly notions away and let my old self blossom. I truly feel great. I keep waiting for the downward lull (it's overdue) but I'm going strong!...
