Now aptly titled ‘Fleur de Sel’, this newly refurbished suite is the latest development in the hotel’s £10 million refurbishment programme – offering businesses across Worcestershire and further afield, a new and intimate meeting room with a capacity of up to 20.
Refurbished by interior design specialist, Linda Brage of Core Design, the Fleur de Sel now boasts neutral and grey colourings, with indoor lighting and comfortable furnishings to create a calming and welcoming atmosphere.
This clever design ensures the room can serve its second purpose, where come early evening it is transformed into an additional restaurant facility, specifically for hotel guests and local residents who have ordered from its new bar and gastro menu.
General Manager, Steve Sweeny, explained: “Here at The Wood Norton we have become an increasingly popular venue for businesses requiring meeting or conference facilities – and although we have both the boardroom and the Orangery to accommodate this demand, we wanted to create an additional space ideal for medium sized groups between 10 and 20 in numbers.
“What’s more, with Linda Brage doing such an excellent job with the interior design, we have been able to utilise this area for a second gastro restaurant for both hotel guests and local residents who want to enjoy a casual light bite as opposed to a five course fine dining experience – as served in our ‘Fleur de Lis’ restaurant.”
All refurbishments were finalised on Thursday 10th March 2016 and already the hotel is taking bookings from both businesses, hotel guests and local residents alike.
Located just outside of Evesham, The Wood Norton is a breath taking Grade II listed Victorian manor house originally crafted for French royalty. Since its official reopening in late 2012 the hotel has become, in a short time, one of the county’s most popular establishments for fine dining, conferences and events, and for tourists visiting the local Cotswolds area.
