Boringdon Hall has gained the status of Plymouth’s first five star hotel, after a year of new developments and improvements impressed the inspectors at the AA.
The 16th century manor hotel, which is privately owned, has gone through a period of investment, including opening a new spa and adding concierge and valet services in a bid to gain five star status.
The new Gaia Spa opened in September and recently the hotel also underwent a refurbishment, with all 40 bedrooms and suites being upgraded. The Gallery restaurant was also renovated and new head chef Scott Paton coming on board earlier this year.
Laura Cameron, operations director, says: “I am thrilled for all of our team who have worked so hard towards this fantastic accolade. Many people have spoken of the need for a five star hotel in Plymouth and Boringdon Hall is now here for those people to enjoy true luxury. I would like to thank everyone involved at Boringdon for their professionalism and commitment. We are fortunate to have some very passionate hospitality enthusiasts on our team and it has been a pleasure to work with them towards this goal. Boringdon is over 400 years old with a fascinating and rich history, but we are most excited about being part of the future in Britain’s Ocean City.”
