Doxford Hall will add four more rooms to its inventory next week.
The hotel is currently putting the finishing touches to the extra accommodation hewn from a converted coach house in the grounds, a few minutes walk from the main house. Once open, the number of rooms at the four red star property will total 34.
General manager Mark Booth told the Berwick Advertiser the £150,000 cost of converting the coach house was in response to customer demand – the hotel having seen a 17% uplift in business over the past six months.
Corporate business was returning said Mr Booth, helped by the improvement in the economy and the hotel’s two AA Rosette restaurant.
The nineteenth-century property designed by architect John Dobson is at Chathill near Alnwick between Newcastle and the Scottish border.
