The White Horse Hotel in Dorking is to undergo an extensive £3m makeover, which will see 16 new bedrooms created in work carried out by Bespoke Hotels.
Work on the property will begin this month and run until November, and will include the complete redesign of the ground-floor restaurant, bar, events, and public spaces.
The interior design is being overseen by Squid Inc and the number of guest rooms will expand from 41 to 57.
The aim is to introduce a stylish and affordable destination hotel to the town.
Bespoke Hotels already look after three Surrey properties including The Bridge Hotel in Chertsey, The Talbot Inn in Ripley and Coulsdon Manor and Golf Club in Coulsdon.
Graham Marskell, managing director of operations for Bespoke Hotels, said: “We are delighted to be able to commit so substantially to the re-imagining of The White Horse.
“Bespoke Hotels and our creative partners will be overseeing a complete overhaul of both the accommodation and culinary sides of the business, with a view to re-establishing it as one of the region’s foremost foodie destinations.”
