The Fish Hotel on the Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds is to undergo a £4m redevelopment and will close its doors completely for almost three months to carry out the work.
Commercial director Chris Ward told Boutique Hotelier that the quirky boutique hotel, which opened on the 400-acre estate in summer 2015, is to benefit from a £4m investment, with a new restaurant, bedroom upgrade and new facilities on the cards.
The 68-bedroom hotel will close at the end of this year and reopen on March 6 with a fresh look and a host of new additions.
A new seafood restaurant, Hook, is set to launch by culinary director Martin Burge, who joined the estate in May this year.
An upgrade of all the existing bedrooms and suites have also been given the go ahead, while a small cinema, outdoor woodland kids play area and a dog agility course will be created.
The Fish Hotel is home to five Hilly Huts, which opened in February 2017, and will now be joined by three treehouses, five new hideaway huts and 10 new bedrooms in the coach house.
“2018 is set to be a very exciting year at the Farncombe Estate,” adds Ward.
The Fish Hotel makes up one third of the Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds, and operates alongside Dormy House Hotel and Spa and Foxhill Manor.
