The renovation, which began in early 2014 and was completed in April, has transformed the hotel’s Manor Bar, lounge area and meetings space, with some meeting rooms upgraded to executive boardrooms.
The hotel’s largest banqueting suite, The Cedar Room – which is rumoured to have been the setting for the first performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream – has also had a full refurbishment.
Situated in its own grounds just five minutes-walk from the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, the four-star hotel has secured a reputation as one the town’s best conference, events and weddings venues and recently won the Pride of Stratford Business of the Year award sponsored by Touch FM.
Sam Aziz, General Manager, said: “Meetings and conferences are an important way of attracting businesses and the resulting investment to Stratford-upon-Avon. We get bookings from many businesses who want to hold their events in an historic location, which is easy to access in the Heart of England”.
“With so many attractions and natural beauty on the doorstep, tourism and weddings are of course an important part of our offering as well. We hope that this significant investment will attract more business and leisure guests to the hotel.”
The venue has also invested in a new refreshment area for meetings and conference delegates, landscaping of the hotel’s grounds, new floodlights, signage and the planting of more trees to enhance its stunning grounds.
“The refurbishment has been very exciting for our team, from having Gerry Thompson design our new bar area, to investing a significant amount on our new state of the art gym facilities. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests.”
