A historic Grade-II listed hotel in Ryde on the Isle of Wight has now reopened following an extensive £400,000 makeover, which saw all its bedrooms and public areas upgraded.
The Royal Esplanade Hotel was acquired by Planning Solutions in October 2015, who have now unveiled the hotel’s new look and announced plans to begin the second phase of the works to be completed by June this year.
With the first phase of the transformation project on the hotel’s 69 bedrooms, restaurant and function rooms now complete, work will now start on a new three-bedroom luxury cottage to be added to The Royal Esplanade Hotel’s offering.
Mike Stickland, chairman of Planning Solutions said: “The Royal Esplanade Hotel has a rich history dating back to Victorian times. Its position on Ryde seafront close to the ferry and hovercraft terminals and the blue flag beaches of East Ryde sands is ideal for visitors who wish to enjoy a central base to explore the island’s attractions and varied landscape.”
