Gilpin Hotel and Lake House is to reopen on July 4, with a new spa lodge and enhanced restaurant facilities.
The 19-bedroom hotel and Lake House, which can sleep 12, is to launch the new Spa Lodge 100 as one of five planned for this year, with the new addition being 25% larger than the original spa lodges built in 2016.
The Spa Lodge 100 features an open plan lounge, circular bath, a walled garden with private hot tub, steam room, sauna and treatment room equipped with infrared lounge beds.
The numbers in the hotel’s two restaurants – Michelin-starred HRiSHi and casual dining space, Gilpin spice – will be capped to 24 diners, four tables per room, and diners will be asked to pre-order their menu ahead of time.
A new kitchen that was being built prior to lock down for HRiSHi is now complete – designed for three times the number of chefs – meaning that the kitchen brigade will also be able to practice safe distancing, each with their own fridge, oven space and induction hobs.
Gilpin’s Spa Trail has also been adapted to use automated massage chairs with Japanese technology, both at the Lake House Spa and in the new treatment room at Gilpin.
