Bedfordshire boutique blends old with new in 20-bedroom expansion project

Old Palace

A four-star boutique hotel in Bedfordshire has unveiled its new look following the completion of a project to expand with a modern new extension.

The Old Palace Lodge Hotel, which is privately-owned by MGM Hotels, has revealed its new-build extension, home to 20 new executive bedrooms, to bring the hotel’s total room count to 86.

The structure has been added to the existing ivy-clad historic Grade-II listed hotel and a refurbishment of the whole hotel’s lounge and bar has also taken place.

Permission was granted for the project in 2017, and funded with support from a £1.1m loan from Lloyds Bank.

The 18th century hotel has been owned by MGM Hotels since 2004 and has now welcomed another 12 employees to the team to support the growth.

Martyn Murphy, director of MGM Hotels, said: “This expansion marks a major milestone for us and our brand, and supports our vision for continued long-term growth.”
