“ I have been going to this salon for over 2 years now and can say that it really is GREAT in all respects. A wonderfully tranquil and cosy salon where clients are made to feel relaxed and rejuvenated whenever they visit. The staff are friendly and professional, nothing is too much trouble. Their massages and signature Great Escape treatment are to die for, and I love the way the emphasis is always on comfort. I am definately in love with The Great Escape. The loyalty scheme is great, and is a lovely way of the staff saying thank you to it's clients. Whenever I need to feel GREAT I know where to come. ”

“I always look forward to having a Great Escape treatment! Having treatments from full body massage to eyelash extensions, I have always been over the moon with the reception, treatment and after treatment advice that the salon provide.
The girls are extremely welcoming and professional. You are put at ease before your treatment with the salons warm inviting decor, peaceful atmosphere, comfy sofas and relaxation room.
All of the treatments are wonderful, and the girls are brilliant in understanding your needs - From massage pressure to eyelash lengths!
All of the treatments are very competitively priced, and are excellent value for the service you'll receive!
If you need some "Me Time", look no further than The Great Escape.

“I visited the salon a few months ago as a one off for an eyebrow wax and now i keep finding excuses to go back!! There is a fantastic website to browse and always lots of special offers. A great incentive for returning and also trying new things is their loyalty card, the first freebie i received was a nail paint, which was so beautifully done with such a huge range of gorgeous colours to choose from and it lasted a week without chipping, fantastic!
From the moment you enter the salon, you feel completely relaxed, with lots of lovely scents and calming decor, all of the girls are so friendly and helpful and you are never kept waiting. Very professional service with the range of treatments, a great atmosphere. Also worth mentioning that it is so easy to book appointments by phone or text and because of the long opening hours, so convenient. Wouldnt dream of using another salon again.”

“As a 'newby' to a little bit of salon pampering I was immediately put at ease by the warm and friendly staff that work at The Great Escape. The salon itself provides a warm and tranquil environment to relax and unwind in and there are plenty of treatments to choose from. Now that I have experienced 'The Great Escape', I will certainly be prioritising future pampering sessions more regularly! Hannah Thomas”Report

“Since moving back to Cornwall 5 years ago I spent ages trying to find a suitable beauty salon but none ever lived up to my expectations!
A few months ago a work colleague recommended the Great Escape after I commented on how lovely her nails looked and I have not looked back since. At first I couldn't believe that I had missed this little gem after having frequently walked past it - for some reason I think I thought it was a tea shop! Although it has to be said that I am probably not the most observant person.
Anyway so I booked my first appointment and visited the salon to be greated by a really friendly and attentive team.
When you arrive the atmosphere is serene, it is warm and cosy with plush chairs and sofa that you would not want to move from (I thought I was going to fall asleep while having my pedicure)! In the background there is the gentle babble of the water housing the garra ruffa fish, background music and you are offered complimentary herbal teas and juices.
You would not believe that you are in the city centre and it is just so convenient.
The therapists make you feel really at home, they're really knowledgeable and often offer handy beauty tips. Also I have to say that every treatment I have had has been second to none - they are absolute perfectionists, which means that I always come away feeling great!
Opening times are really important to me as I work out of town and so the fact that they open until as late as 7pm is a big advantage.
Of all the salons that I have visited I have found the Great Escape to be the best value for money and you also get a loyalty card which offers great treats and is a fab incentive, not that you need it!
I visit the salon regulalry and there are so many treatments I still want to try especially the Girls Night in package which is a novel idea that I have not seen elsewhere but sounds amazing.
The Great Escape is the perfect escape and I would throroughly recommend to anyone!

“My guilty pleasure is a day to myself at the Great Escape in Truro - I always plan to have just a massage but it always ends up being the Greatest Day package with bubbly, smoothies, a lovely lunch, all the latest magazines, full body scrub, massage, indulgent facial and a manicure and pedicure: it is my favourite little haven and I've introduced it slowly to all of my friends. I treated my sister for her 21st birthday there (she is now also a self-confessed Great Escapaholic like me!) she likes the Gara Ruffa fish pedicure (I'm not that brave yet, stick to the classics I say!) I've taken my mum there, my stepmum there and can't wait until January when I get married (mainly so I have an excuse to take my best friend there!) If the Great Escape cannot persuade her to move back to Cornwall nothing will!
As a workaholic stresshead who runs a business I can honestly say I just don't get time off and I'm hard on myself all of the time. The Great Escape has been the only place that chills me out - from the moment I enter the softly lit relaxation room I feel calm, everyone needs a great escape sometimes! :)

“I took my fiancee here about six weeks ago for her birthday, and i paid for her to have the day package. whilst she was having the day package, i had a back massage, and a facial, both of which were excellent! i felt very relaxed afterwards, and the therapists are young, informative and very professional, and during the whole exerience they made me feel at ease.
The salons owner has exquisite taste as the attention to detail is superb and really finishes the salon off perfectly to make it feel like a real sanctuary. My Fiancee loved how she was in the centre of Truro, as it felt like she could have been anywhere in the world...theres nothing worse then going to a salon thats too bright or has bright colours/themes. As a marketing director myself, I must add that the interior design of the salon is quite easily the best i have seen in Cornwall.
I was impressed with how reasonably priced the Great Escape beauty salon was, and the location is second to none... I will be returning for more stress-releiving back massage's and am sure my partner will be returning a lot in the future.
