Stobo Castle Spa
Stobo Castle is set in breathtaking grounds in the picturesque Scottish Borders, close to the town of Peebles. It became a health spa in the late 1970’s, but has since undergone a multi-million pound transformation and today offers the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation, providing guests with an unparalleled level of style and tranquility.
Stobo Castle Spa has 40 treatment rooms, a 25-metre swimming pool and a large health suite, including hydro pool and steam rooms. Amanda Blacklaw, the spa manager, explains that “we need a laundry to service all the towels used for treatments, our pool and health suite area. Our machines run from 7am to 1am the following morning 7 days a week.”
The towels and robes are an integral part of Stobo Castle Spa. The facilities are used by up to 135 guests per day and each guest can use up to five towels. Amanda says “JLA provide a professional high quality service that enables us to cope with the demand for towels our guests expect. The OTEX system we use offers us peace of mind that cross infection in the laundry is eliminated.”
Amanda states that another big advantage of JLA’s OTEX system is that it saves them time in the laundry. “The OTEX system eliminates staining as well as decontaminating the towels; therefore towels do not have to be washed again.” Another benefit of the OTEX system is that it makes towels fluffier than regular washing – keeping the towels to a standard spa guests would expect.
Amanda says she feels reassured thanks to the level of service JLA offer. “JLA save us money, offer a complete laundry solution and always ensure engineers are on site promptly.”
