"We are doing the refurbishment in two phases. The first phase is basically enabling work. We have to relocate two fitness studios and a spinning studio, which will give us the opportunity to refurbish the gym.

"This will include new flooring, lighting and equipment as well as a larger toilet facilities for the lounge. This will cost around £2m. and should be completed in the next five months.

"The second phase, centred around the spa, will begin next year but it’s a very complex and we’ve yet to tender the work. We can’t stand still in this business, we have to constantly improve.”
