A historic property in Saltburn has been brought back to life as a boutique hotel, complete with fine dining restaurant and a brassierie, following 18 months of renovation.
Brockley Hall in Saltburn, which dates back to 1875, is now open and is home to 32 bedrooms, two restaurants and a bar, which is open to both residents and non-residents.
Owned by Heather and Emilio Garcia who bought the property in January last year, the building was originally intended to be transformed into a care home, but plans changed when local demand for a hotel was realised.
Heather owns Greta Cottage and Seaview care homes, both in Saltburn.
She said that the hotel is designed to be “boutique and unique, individual and stylish”.
Alongside the bedrooms, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant and brasserie will offer breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.
The original planning statement, submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Council, read: “This development will bring back into use, breathe new life into and preserve the historic Brockley Hall, which following its closure in January 2014 had an uncertain future.
“The project will bring revenue into the town and provide quality facilities which are lacking and will complement the resurgence of Saltburn as a seaside resort visitor attraction once more.”
