Cairn Group’s investment into County Durham hotel tops £2m as new leisure retreat is unveiled


Newcastle-based leisure group, Cairn Group, has unveiled the results of a £2m investment into its hotel in County Durham.

The group acquired the 134-bedroom Redworth Hall Hotel in November 2016 as part of a £75m takeover of five properties across the country.

Now its new-look has been revealed, with a new Retreat Leisure Club and Spa introduced as part of the renovation project.

Earlier this year £150k was invested into Redworth’s Great Hall and now the hotel’s leisure and spa facilities have been reconfigured and transformed to create a spa with six treatment rooms, a tranqulity room and spa reception, as well as a new hair and nail salon.

The retreat facilities also include a 14-metre indoor swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room, plus a new Lounge dining space.

The existing gym was relocated to the first floor and now has an array of Technogym equipment and an Omnium multi exercise rig.

There is also a new purpose-built exercise studio featuring a ‘Fitness on Demand’ virtual class system, offering more than 2,500 class options, alongside instructor-led classes.

Speaking to the Chronicle Live, Vince Johnson, general manager, Redworth Hall Hotel, said: “We are really excited about the opening of The Retreat and are confident that the new leisure and spa facilities will be really popular in the local market as well as with visitors to the area.

“The new facilities mark a major step-change for the hotel and set the tone for the quality of the further refurbishment which is planned.

“The new Retreat Leisure Club & Spa is a fantastic new addition for the local area and the substantial investment reflects our belief in the potential of the hotel.

The Cairn Hotel Group operates over 30 hotels across the UK including The Royal Station Hotel in Newcastle, The DoubleTree by Hilton Newcastle International Airport, The Majestic Hotel in Harrogate and Hotel Indigo Edinburgh – Princes Street.
