Appleby Manor Country House Hotel in the UK’s Lake District is set to launch a brand new spa in mid-October 2015, projecting an influx of 200 guests a week, according to the sales and marketing manager Grahame Devine – who spoke to Spa Opportunities.

The four-star 31-key hotel is receiving advice from spa consultant Michelle Stacey and design input from Duncan Mackenzie from Mackenzie Wheeler Architects. The privately-owned hotel will break ground on the five-treatment room spa on 25 May.

“We will offer a pedicure/ manicure suite, two outdoor hot tubs, a thermal suite and a hydrotherapy pool,” said Devine. “The wet zone facilities are being provided by Cheshire Wellness.”

“We are investing up to £1m in this development and we are investing in the spa operation services provided by Elemis,” added Devine. “OPI is the brand we will use for nails.”

“Our goal, at the hotel and spa, is to increase our profit by 50 per cent in the next three years,” said Devine. “The spa will be mainly responsible for this uplift via the increase in average room rate that the spa will provide validation for.”

If the spa does well, there are plans in the pipeline for a major refurbishment of the existing guestrooms at the property.
