 The Langstone Hotel in Portsmouth is almost half way towards completing a major project to transform more than 100 of its bedrooms.

So far, 42 rooms have been upgraded and the new look has already gone down well with guests.

The project will see the carpets, lighting, curtains, chairs and artwork in the rooms all replaced, while the bathrooms will all be updated with improvements including new showers and taps.

A new heating system has also been installed at the hotel to enhance guests’ experience.

Refurbishment work at the hotel, managed by the UK’s largest independent hotel management company, Redefine|BDL Hotels, is expected to be completed by 16th February next year.

Clint Marsh, general manager at The Langstone Hotel, said: “This £700,000 investment has allowed us to make some fantastic upgrades to our rooms. The feedback from the guests who have stayed in the rooms we have transformed has been absolutely amazing.

“The investment underlines the commitment we have to continually improving the hotel to offer our guests the very best experience.

“We have put a lot of thought into the improvements being carried out and we are sure they will prove popular with our regular guests and newcomers alike.”
