Down Hall Country House Hotel exterior
Down Hall Country House Hotel, on the Hertfordshire and Essex borders, has invested £1.5 million in a major refurbishment of 71 bedrooms and the hotel’s kitchen, while also installing a well-equipped gymnasium. Bedrooms in the West Wing have been freshly redecorated using heritage country colours, the kitchen has been completely refitted with the latest catering equipment, costing £200,000 and the new gymnasium is equipped with innovative exercise machines from  leading producer of fitness and wellness equipment, Technogym. The refurbishment will be completed by the beginning of February  2014.

“The refurbishment has achieved our goal to further advance the hotel’s position as a four star superior residential meeting and event venue,” comments Anna Snoep, Director of Sales & Marketing at Down Hall Hotel, “We have refreshed and restyled bedrooms, fine cuisine from an upgraded kitchen and a new gym, which is a significant addition to the recreational facilities we offer.  With journey times of around an hour from London, Paris and Brussels, I believe Down Hall Hotel is now one of the leading conferences, meetings and events venues in the region.”

The room designs are inspired by a theme described as ‘Classic Country House meets Contemporary Lifestyle.’ The interior designer has retained the hotel’s original heritage, charm and character, within a fresh contemporary style. To achieve this, the rooms have had certain existing furniture restored to its former glory, with new soft furnishings and a mix of colour, pattern and texture bringing a contemporary feel to the rooms.

Down Hall Hotel is the centre point of a 110 acre, privately owned estate and is readily flexibly and accommodating to ideas and projects that seek to use it for outdoor events and pursuits. The Hotel boasts 26 multi-purpose rooms, fully equipped with the latest presentation technology and wireless access. Rooms provide a  flexible layout to tailor to a range of events including receptions, dinners, meetings and conferences with capacity for 200 guests (theatre style). All rooms feature an abundance of natural daylight and high, ornate ceilings.

Down Hall Hotel’s extensive refurbishment has been designed to transform the experience on three primary levels; rest, food and health, meaning the hotel has reinforced its position as one of the leading heritage conference hotels in the UK.
