Ribby Hall Village voted best spa in the north

The five bubble SPA Hotel at Ribby Hall Village has been named the best in the north by the Good Spa Guide.

The hydrotherapy pool at Ribby Hall Hotel and SpaThe Wrea Green site beat competition from 17 shortlisted spas from across Yorkshire, Cumbria, Durham, Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside.

Throughout October, previous day spa visitors and overnight spa break guests, as well as readers and subscribers to The Good Spa Guide, were asked to vote for their favourite spa in the North of England.

The multimillion pound SPA Hotel was originally opened in August 2011, and quickly gained the maximum five bubble spa accreditation from the Good SPA Guide just a couple of months after opening, and more recently maintained its five bubble status from The Good SPA Guide at the beginning of 2013. Lorna McLeod, who has headed up the SPA since August 2012, said: “The entire team has been astounded by all the fantastic feedback we’ve had in person, via our social media channels and also via email from our supporters and previous visitors over the last few days."
