Sara Jolicoeur says:

I just wanted to thank Barb and her staff at the Parkside spa for making me and my bridal party feel so beautiful on my wedding day! The makeup looked amazing all day and night!!! It was exactly the look I wanted! Thank you again for being so kind and flexible - helping me to relax and enjoy the special moment.

Matthew Irvine says:

I visited the Parkside spa this past Friday with my girlfriend. We had the couples massage which was out of this world. My Ortho Therapist was Crystal and I must admit I’ve never experienced a better massage in all my life. I’ve had massages all throughout North America in some of the finest spas available (Ritz Carleton, Marriott, Fairmont properties, etc.). I can’t say enough about the tranquility and relaxation that the spa brought us both. Barb was also wonderful.

Joanne says:

I just came from the Parkside Hair Artistry and am beyond please with my experience there!! I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Ann Pilon says:

My sister in law and I spent a half day at the Parkside Spa & it was an amazing experience. We had a back massage, reflexology, and a facial. The staff are very professional. Included in our package was the heated salt water pool, hot tub and eucalyptus steam room. We had our lunch catered to from the Stone Cellar. This was a real wonderful birthday celebration for Pat & I. What a beautiful hotel & Spa! Ann

Tracy Dowdall says:

I love this Spa! I have been there 3 times and I just can`t say enough about how wonderful the Spa and the Staff are. Thanks to Barb, Raisha and the other ladies who have made each visit just lovely which keeps me wanting to go back!

Barbara Carswell says:

The highlight of the past very special weekend was our morning at the Parkside spa: deluxe facials, manicures and pedicures. Everything was immaculate, services were organized and flowed without interruption, and the environment inside and outside ( location is very picturesque) created serenity and calm. Special thanks to my esthetician Chelsea, who through extended facial and foot massages and her wonderful professional touch, left me feeling totally relaxed and refreshed. There is just no comparison between this and the assembly-line “strip mall spa” experience. It is so good to know that the Parkside is only an hour away from Ottawa, and the best gift I can think of.

Krista Peters says:

I recently spent a half day at the spa with my two sisters – we had such a wonderful time I felt compelled to share my experience with others. Aesthetically speaking, the spa itself could not be more charming and elegant. It boasts large airy rooms, natural stone and woodwork throughout; exactly the kind of atmosphere that begs you to relax. The facial was my favourite treatment as it was one of the most soothing experiences I have ever had; warming bed, facial towels, light steam and the most intoxicating scented creams expertly applied to the face. A gorgeous location with professional, welcoming staff just waiting to pamper – we will definitely be back!!

Katherine Elizabeth says:

I recently went to have my hair cut and coloured at the salon and was blown away. Aside from the gorgeous decor and the welcoming atmosphere, the staff are absolutely amazing. They were able to fit me in at the last minute – something I’ve been told is near impossible at times because they’re so busy. I only wish that I lived in the area so that I could go back for touch-ups. I will be recommending both those ladies, and the spa in its entirety, to everyone I know in the area.

Tammy Mulrooney says:

i was very fortunate to spend a day at the SPA with my co-workers recently thanks to the generosity of my employer – Crain and Schooley. It was absolutely one of the most relaxing days I have ever had. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and steam room followed by a rejuvenating facial, exquisite lunch from the Stone Cellar, manicure and pedicure. The spa is beautifully decorated and as one of my colleagues expressed ” it felt like we were away at some exclusive resort”. Barb and all her staff are professional, talented and extremely pleasant to be with. Thank you for a wonderful day — I can’t wait to go back!!!

Nancy Eickmeier says:

I recently brought 7 of my employees to your beautiful spa for a wonderful 1/2 day experience. From massages to manicures, our experiences were wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable. My hope was that my staff would feel pampered and enveloped with calmness and tranquility, and we were not disappointed. The spa is a breathtaking retreat where you leave feeling like a princess. Thank you to everyone for accommodating such a large group and helping me provide a wonderful experience to my staff to show them how much they are appreciated.

Barbara Rotar says:

My husband gave a Christmas present to me, my daughter and my daughter-in-law of time at your spa. We experienced massage, facials, manicures, pedicures, (with paraffin wraps on our hands and feet as well) together with lunch in a lovely private room and then a swim. Absolutely paradise for all of us! Crystal gave me an excellent, pain relieving massage and Krystal was a joy as she did my manicure, pedicure and paraffin. My daughter and daughter-in-law loved their services and the whole atmosphere in your spa as well. We will definitely be back!!! Barb you were great at fitting us in during my daughter’s visit from Vancouver and your staff are fabulous, pleasant, and caring.

Angie says:

Absolutely we had a wonderful weekend! The spa was fabulous!! We all agreed it was the best pedicure we ever had! So many extras.
You have done a wonderful job on the place and we will certainly be back!!

Sue Windover says:

Good Morning,
I visited your spa on Saturday and had a massage with Leia and a facial and pedicure with Krystal, who convinced me to buy a cream cleanser and toner. Please let her know that I LOVE the way my skin feels and looks, after only five days of use! I plan on making my next moisturizer an AVEDA purchase as well.

My sister in law and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at your spa, and will definitely be back, hopefully with more girlfriends next time.
Please pass along my thanks to both Leia and Krystal for such outstanding service.

Regards,
Sue W

I received a gift certificate for a massage from my son for Christmas. I have had many massages over the years and I have has some fantastic ones but I have never had one like I had with Crystal last week. First of all, the fact that you can use the pool, whirlpool and steam room included in the price of your (over $50) spa treatment is amazing. I like a deep massage and I got the deepest I have ever had. She loosened up muscles I didn’t know I had! A swim, soak, steam then a phenomenal massage, what more could you ask! Also, the fact that you can get evening appointments are great as a lot of us work out of town. Everyone at Parkside is so caring and friendly and the atmosphere is so relaxing, an all round wonderful experience.

Gloria says:

WOW I have just had a facial with Christina and got so much more. She did a wonderful job and got a lot of extras included.It must have been one of the best facial’s I have had for years, I am looking forward to my next one but going to try the Lomi Lomi next week and then book Christina when I come back from holiday. It was just what was needed and felt on top of the world. Well done Christina.
