Ilkley’s historic hotel the Craiglands has announced a £2.2million investment unveiling a luxury new Verbeia Spa and Fitness facility alongside refurbished ballroom and events facilities.
The re-opening marks a new chapter in the hotel’s 162-year history and now offers a purpose-designed spa including five Decleor treatment rooms, a hydro pool, mud chamber, sauna, steam room and 25-piece gym.
As a perfect venue for making the most of Ilkley’s beautiful walks, independent retail and culinary hospitality, within the hotel’s own historic walls you will also find the contemporary and exclusive Bertrams restaurant, an exquisite afternoon tea experience, a choice of executive rooms and a range of events facilities to accommodate up to 700 people.
General Manager Matthew Hole says: “The hotel was built in 1859 at the peak of the hydrotherapy movement. We’ve recaptured those days as a wellbeing destination for days out, short breaks and traditional and multicultural weddings, events and conferences to make the best of the incredible facilities we have here.”
