Billesley Manor Hotel, near Stratford-upon-Avon, is to undergo a refurbishment in the new year to mark its ‘next chapter’ as a luxury hotel.
The property, which returned to private ownership in 2017, will give its public areas a revamp as part of a schedule of refurbishments at the Elizabethan Manor.
Following a year of continued investment, which saw £2.5m spent on the venue’s event space and spa and health club, 2020 will see further changes made to the hotel’s reception, the Great Hall and its gallery, the restaurants and corridor and lounge areas.
The work will be completed to re-establish Billesley Manor as a luxury hotel and spa.
Additionally, there will be a full refurbishment of Cedar Barn and the Manor House bedrooms, as well as a soft refurbishment of the Topiary Wing.
Later in the year an ‘enormous’ bedroom overhaul will also take place.
Director of sales Jo Reeves said: “We are incredibly excited about this next chapter for Billesley Manor. The past year has been busy for the team, who have been working feverishly behind the scenes to re-establish the grandeur of our Elizabethan manor house as a luxury hotel and spa.
“We are very excited for phase two of our renovation programme to be underway and can’t wait to welcome guests through our doors to appreciate the dramatic changes we have in store. It really is a case of new year, new us!”
The Magnolia Barn reopened in June 2018.
In 2017 the hotel was sold by Hotel Collection back to a private investor, to be operated by Bespoke Hotels.
The Grade-II listed hotel, which dates back to the 16th century, is home to 72 bedrooms, a health club, a AA Rosette restaurant, two bars and 10 conference rooms.
