New Forest hotel, The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard, has unveiled a new look and dining concept as part of major renovation works that were completed this month.
The hotel, part of luxury Hillbrooke Hotels, stripped all nine of its bedrooms in its ‘Henry Adams’ wing of fixtures, fittings and furniture, updating the overall look with coastal-inspired soft furnishings to help give a lighter and more relaxed feel.
The work started in January this year and has now been unveiled to the public.
The Master Builder’s restaurant, the Yachtsman’s Bar & Garden, has also received a significant makeover, boasting a new purpose-built kitchen with pizza oven and a new menu. The new space will also see the hotel offer dedicated table service to help avoid queues at the bar during peak hours.
The garden, overlooking the Beaulieu River, has been re-landscaped with a newly-planted boxed terrace, new tables and lighting.
Group director Paul Brown comments: “Planned works started in January 2016, we’ve invested considerably concentrating on a much needed redesign of the rooms in our Henry Adams wing, taking them beyond the standard you’d expect when staying in AA three-star accommodation.
“We’ve totally redesigned each room giving them an entire new look and feel, clean, crisp and well-designed for everyday needs. The newly refurbished Yachtsman’s Bar and Garden is something we’ve wanted to invest in for some time, linked to our customer’s needs. All areas have been redecorated and we now offer a dedicated table service. This new system, along with an entirely new food offering, will ensure visitors won’t have to queue to order, they can instead take a seat, eat, drink, relax and enjoy the views from their tables. With lots of boats mooring on the river we’ve also introduced a takeaway service to cater for those who may want this as an option too.”
