The team at the Bannatyne Spa Durham is celebrating after winning a trio of national awards.

All 45 Bannatyne Spas across the UK entered the Bannatyne Spa Awards, with Durham completing a hat trick of wins.

Therapist Leanne Westlake was acknowledged as the ‘Best Therapist for the North Region 2017’, while the spa was presented with the ‘Best use of Social Media 2017’ award and the ‘Best Mystery Shop Average 2017’.

The Bannatyne Spa Durham, which works in partnership with Elemis, has five therapy rooms, including single and dual treatment rooms.

As part of the Bannatyne Group’s ongoing investment programme, the café bar at Durham Health Club and Spa recently underwent an £80,000 refurbishment of its café-bar. It includes a children’s soft play area, as well as a new Starbucks for members and guests to enjoy.

Matthew Emery, Bannatyne Health Club Durham’s resort manager, said: “It is amazing that the team at the Bannatyne Spa Durham is being recognised for excellent customer service, as well as the ability to engage with members and potential guests. Competition is fierce among the 45 spas and I’m proud of the team.

“Our recent refurbishments have enhanced the current offering that guests and members receive, and it’s fantastic to know that our Spa team is going above and beyond to personally complement our facilities.”

Michaela Hope, Spa Manager at the Bannatyne Health Club & Spa Durham added: “We are overjoyed to have been acknowledged for our work at the awards and I would like to congratulate Leanne for her personal accolade.

“To win awards for three different aspects of the Spa team’s capabilities, proves that we have a diverse and dynamic team, and I am very proud to be a part of it.”
