AN independent spa in Huddersfield has been named as a finalist in a regional competition.

Alexandra House Holistic Health and Wellbeing Spa, based at Edgerton, is among the finalists in the regional Good Spa Guide Awards 2012.

Spas nominated in this category have all been reviewed by The Good Spa Guide – the independent comprehensive guide to spas in the UK – and have received the highest “bubble” ratings in their respective region.

Alexandra House has received much recognition and praise over the five years since it has been established. The spa was described as “a slice of heaven just off the M62” by the Good Spa Guide which awarded the spa a four bubble rating.

Owner Maxine Stead (pictured) said: “‘It’s a great pleasure to have been nominated for an award by the Good Spa Guide and to be amongst 12 top spas nominated in the North East region.

“It’s wonderful for the team to be a finalist and it reflects the hard work put in by everyone to create a fantastic experience for all of our visitors.”
