A SPA in Huddersfield has been listed as one of the best in Britain.
Alexandra House Health Spa at Edgerton was placed 22nd in the top 30 Most Inspiring Spas 2011 by industry magazine Professional Beauty.
It is the first time that Alexandra House has appeared in the list, which highlights the spa businesses that most impress and influence the industry.
Maxine Stead, who launched the business three years ago, said: “We’re delighted to be listed in the top 30 list of most inspiring spas by our industry colleagues.
“It’s a great compliment to be rated so highly when we’re a small independent business and we’re competing against large corporate spas.”
Professional Beauty’s review highlighted the ways in which Alexandra House drove business in 2010 – by refurbishing its relaxation and treatment rooms, employing more staff to increase capacity and introducing a new product range.
It also highlighted other spa services such as hypnosis and added extras – such as fresh cakes and refreshments.
The spa was also featured in a national newspaper’s list of 10 affordable spas in Britain.
