Fowey Hall, part of Luxury Family Hotels, is to undergo a multi-million pound refurbishment, introducing a fresh look for guests and marking a ‘new era’ for the brand.
The Grade-II hotel in Cornwall is to give all its 36 bedrooms and bathrooms a revamp, as well as creating a stylish new bar and afternoon tea lounge.
The hotel’s restaurant is also undergoing complete refurbishment, while the reception and lounge areas, spa, library, games room, OFSTED-registered crèche and indoor pool will also be upgraded along with its outside space which spans four acres.
The refurbishment, which has already discreetly started, will be completed over the first six weeks of 2020 (when the hotel will be temporarily closed), reopening on 14 February 2020.
Once the Fowey Hall refurbishment is complete, further significant investment for the other hotels in the Luxury Family Hotels’ collection will follow in 2020 and 2021.
Adrian Burley, marketing director, Luxury Family Hotels, said: “This is a new era for Luxury Family Hotels and the investment we are making demonstrates our 100 per cent commitment to ensuring our guests – existing as well as new – have the most wonderful time when they stay with us.
“Consistent standards must be upheld, but our hotels are all individual and have distinct personalities and this is what makes them so special. In planning the refurbishment, it has been very important that we retain Fowey Hall’s unique character, its fascinating history and unique location, and bring the aspects to life through stylish interior design.”
Built in 1899 as a family home by Sir Charles Hanson, Fowey Hall is located in the harbour town of Fowey on the South Cornish coast.
The changes taking place at Fowey Hall are a direct response to a piece of major research by Kantar commissioned by Luxury Family Hotels earlier in 2019 which took a closer look at the needs of modern families and their expectations of what a luxury experience means today.
