The Good Spa Awards 2012 in association with Archant Life
For this year's Good Spa Awards, Archant Life teamed up with The Good Spa Guide to offer readers the chance to vote for their favourite spa. We asked spa goers in regions across Britain to choose their star spa from a shortlist selected by The Good Spa Guide's expert panel of Spa Spies. All nominated spas have been reviewed by The Good Spa Guide, and have received the highest bubble ratings in their respective region. The spas with the highest number of reader votes are our lucky winners!
Everyone who helped us to find our winners by voting online at www.goodspaawards.com, or via SMS also had the opportunity to win spa prizes, including a luxurious spa day for two, courtesy of our fabulous finalists. Look out for the November issues of Archant Life magazines to find out who'll be heading off for a day of pampering!
The Good Spa Guide's Spa Spies travel all over Britain, checking every aspect of a spa's service from showers to saunas, from cleanliness to customer service. Each spa is rated using the bubble system, ranging from one (let me out!) to five (I'm not leaving). To read the full Good Spa Guide reviews of the award-winning spas, visit www.goodspaguide.co.uk.
