I scheduled an hour massage and ended up getting a lady in her 70s who spent the entire hour preaching to me about some crazy religion she believes in where children are the angels and will take us all back to heaven….listen, if I wanted a scientology lesson, I would have watched one of Tom Cruise’s horrible movies, I didn’t have to pay $100 to Spa Sydell. - Jimmye1212

I was verbally abused by a toothless man sitting in the corner who looked like Ashley Cole. As I took my Americano and walked to a vacant table, he shouted at me, “You like meat, do you?” I ignored him, but when I left he shouted at me again. This time he said, “We’ll see what Eamonn Holmes has to say about this.” - PHIL L

The place is quite pretty, but you can’t get in most of the buildings due to people living in them. Save your money and visit somewhere else. - cuthbert_the_octo

The female head chef could be heard screaming and shouting in the kitchen and sounded unstable. A female waitress was actually fired in full view of everyone as she had the hiccups and the owners thought she was annoying the customers. - Seamus K

When asked for toilet, very begrudgingly shown it. Not recommended, unless it is raining and you are really really bored…

shellgrotto, Owner at The Shell Grotto, responded to this review


This lady is a contestant on Come Dine With Me, who filmed here at the Grotto last week. Being used as a backdrop for a ‘menu reveal’ has limited publicity value for us, but it’s always fun for people who know the Grotto already to see it on the telly. The lady was late arriving and wanted a cup of tea, which I made for her cheerfully (at no charge, again). I reminded the crew – nicely – that they needed to be clear of the Grotto by our 10am opening time. They weren’t, so I had to ask them to leave at 10am. It seems this lady didn’t like her five minutes of fame (such as it is) being cut short and is now on something of a vindictive mission against us. On the plus side, the idea that I would ‘begrudgingly’ show someone the toilet made me smile. Never mind, there’s always one…!

I had to wait 30 minutes at the front desk because the person in front of me was trying to order an ambulance for his friend who was vomiting blood in one of the rooms (and then the guy stayed to inquire about Amsterdam city tours). jess97
