A family-run hotel in Suffolk is celebrating its 25th year in business and nearing the end of a major renovation programme that’s been rolled out at the hotel over the past two years.
Ufford Park, near Woodbridge is owned by Colin and Shirley Aldous, who first opened the doors to the hotel in April 1992 following a development period.
The original hotel was extended in 1997 and again in 2005, and is now home to 90 bedrooms, a gym, function rooms, golf facilities and a spa which was created in 2007.
In 2015 an extensive refurbishment programme began at the hotel, with a major renovation carried out at the hotel’s Park Restaurant and the bedrooms being redesigned with two-thirds now complete.
Colin and Shirley Aldous officially retired from the business in 2015, with their daughter, Tarnia Robertson, taking over as managing director.
The hotel and its 18-hole, par-71 golf course are set in 120 acres of parkland originally created as the grounds for a mansion called Ufford Place.
The house was demolished in the middle of the last century following a fire with a Victorian lodge house at the entrance to the site being all that remains of the original house and park.
