Work starts on major 3-month refurb at Lower Slaughter Manor


Extensive refurbishment work is scheduled to start next month at Lower Slaughter Manor, which will see the hotel upgraded and improved over the next three months.

Choosing to begin the renovation programme after the busy festive period, the 17th century hotel will close on January 3 and then reopen in March 11.

The picturesque hotel in the Cotswolds is operated by Andrew Brownsword Hotels and the upcoming work will represent a significant investment into the property.

The entire ground floor will be renovated to restore the character of the building, exposing and emphasising architectural details.

A new layout will offer new rooms, plus the introduction of completely new elements such as a bar serving tasting plates, a new snug and a billiards room.

The scheme will be constructed using natural materials and finishes that will complement a simple colour palette echoed throughout the whole hotel.

In addition, when the Lower Slaughter Manor reopens in March, Nik Cappell, executive chef at the hotel’s 3 AA Rosette restaurant, will launch his new 2016 menu, designed to showcase the best of the Cotswolds produce.
