But for the ultimate private hot tub experience for romantics, check in to Lower Slaughter Manor in the Cotswolds. They don't have a health centre as such, but two of the garden suites have outdoor hot tubs in their private gardens, making for a very romantic short break. The hotel has lovely grounds as well as a gourmet restaurant, the Sixteen58. Even the surroundings of the hotel are romantic – the sleepy village street, Copse Hill Road, having been voted the most romantic street in 2011.
Of course, any list of hotels with hot tubs in the UK would not be complete without properties like Cliveden, which boasts Canadian cedarwood hot tubs as well as a whirlpool jacuzzi. This spectacular country house hotel is just half an hour from London and close to Heathrow airport, so is often used as a first night stopover by newlyweds on their way to a honeymoon in the Seychelles. It's also famous – or infamous – as the place where Christine Keeler seduced John Profumo in the early 1960s. But whether you are getting married or not, seduced or not, Cliveden provides the most spectacular location for a romantic break within easy reach of London, for hot tub aficionados. And if you don't want to leave London, jump in to the hot tubs in the spa of the Atheneaum Hotel on Piccadilly – not cheap, but a great experience after a hard day's shopping and tea in the Ritz.
