A £2m renovation project at Formby Hall near Southport has now been completed, with 14 new bedrooms and a revamped restaurant being unveiled as part of the works.  

The boutique hotel in the north west was acquired by CS Hotels in 2016 for an undisclosed sum, and plans for the upgrade were laid out.

With the project now finalised, the hotel has unveiled 14 new bedrooms, created in a vacant loft area, a redesign and refurbishment of The Fairway Grill restaurant and bar, plus improvements to the hotel’s spa, pool and treatment rooms.

The work took less than six months and was carried out by leisure contractor Medlock FRB.

Alongside the boutique hotel, spa, bar and dining facilities, Formby Hall has an 18-hole championship golf course, a nine-hole course, a PGA golf academy and a driving range.

Set in 200 acres of parkland, the four-star destination is also a popular wedding venue.

Dave Wheeler, Medlock’s commercial director, said: “These improvements were carried out in a live trading environment in 17 weeks with every effort taken to minimise disruption to the leisure and business guests at Formby Hall.”

The other works included refurbishments to the existing 62 bedrooms and the reception area, and the creation of a new gin bar.

Formby Hall’s general manager Andrew Pyle said: “We are delighted with the new look and new facilities at Formby Hall and the improvements have been extremely well received by our customers. The response has been fantastic.”
