Rudding Park Hotel and Spa has been named the ‘Hotel Spa of the Year’ for Western Europe and Scandinavia at the annual World Spa and Wellness Awards.

The awards, which were held virtually this year, recognise and reward the excellence of spas around the globe.

And as one of five finalists, Rudding Park saw off stiff competition from four other hotels across the UK and one from France to scoop the prestigious award.

Other finalists included Bvlgari Spa at Bvlgari Hotel and Ned’s Club Spa in London, Seaham Hall & Serenity Spa in County Durham and The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Paris.
