A new general manager has been appointed at Felbridge Hotel and Spa in East Grinstead, as the property undergoes an extensive £3m rebrand.
Karl Emerick has joined the 116-bedroom hotel with more than 20 years experience with InterContinental Hotels, as the property embarks on a rebrand to become Crowne Plaza Felbridge.
Emerick’s career has included stints at Holiday Inn London Mayfair and Holiday Inn Hemel Hempstead.
Now based in East Grinstead, he is also currently cluster manager for three IHG hotels in the south east, which include the Crowne Plaza Felbridge.
Scheduled for completion early April, the refurbishment will transform all the hotel’s public areas, restaurant, meeting rooms, banqueting suites and bedrooms.
The Chakra Spa with its five treatment rooms, gym, indoor pool and steam room is also receiving a facelift.
