Gisborough Hall in North Yorkshire has revealed its new rooms and suites following an investment of nearly half a million pounds into the revamp of the property.
The upgrade has also sparked the return of Jason Moore as the hotel’s hotel chef, after he travelled around the UK and Europe working a variety of locations, including helping with Provenance Inns’ gastro-pub openings all over the Yorkshire region.
The 19th century four-star hotel, home to two AA Rosette restaurant Chaloner’s, a Revival Zone spa, 71 bedrooms and ‘G’ Bar and Bistro, has refurbished 39 of its bedrooms, its ballroom, drawing room and inner hall.
The investment of more than £400,000 has seen all of the refurbishment works remain in keeping with the age of the house, which dates back to 1857.
The rolling refurbishment programme is now continuing with further bedrooms being revamped over the coming months.
The Grade II-listed country house was fully restored in 2002 following an investment of over £10m by the Gisborough family, who privately own the hotel itself. The hotel is now a Macdonald Associate hotel.
Kim Yardley, general manager of Gisborough Hall, said: “Gisborough Hall has such a strong reputation and heritage in the Teesside and North Yorkshire areas and it’s vital that we invest in the property to continually surprise our exceptionally loyal clientele and entice new people to the beautiful area. The new bedrooms and public areas have been extremely well received and the coming year will also see more exciting plans unveiled for the hall.
“Jason’s return as our head chef has been a fantastic boost as he is so highly regarded. We’re very fortunate to have a committed, local team of over 100 staff and retention is exceptionally high, compared to other hospitality businesses. We’re now looking forward to some interesting development in 2016.”
