De Vere Wotton House in Surrey, part of the Principal Hotel Company, has unveiled its £6m renovation programme, which is part of a wider £50m investment project in the De Vere country estate hotels portfolio.
Part of the new-look De Vere brand, which is due to launch in spring/summer 2017, De Vere Wotton House will be one of around 20 country estate hotels and executive centres in the UK under the De Vere brand.
The sympathetic renovation at the 17th century Dorking estate has been designed to place the historic Wotton House mansion back at the very heart of the venue.
De Vere Wotton House, which is situated in 12 acres of listed gardens, has completed all of its bedroom renovations, and has seen 16 new junior suites added to its inventory, all of which are located in the mansion house, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 127.
The hotel’s restaurant is also undergoing a full refurbishment, as well as the reception and public areas, and is due to be complete by the end of 2016, along with the hotel’s bar which is also undergoing a refresh.
The transformation has also included a full restoration of Wotton’s principal event space, The Evelyn Suite, alongside all other event rooms at the venue.
Caroline Morrone, general manager at Wotton House, commented: “As a popular venue for the meetings, conferences and private events market, the renovation project has been planned and designed to appeal to all our customers and provide a contemporary standout venue in stunning surroundings which pays homage to its history and heritage as a listed architectural building.”
