In December, a new-look hotel and events venue in Derbyshire will unveil the results of an extensive £10m renovation and expansion.
Van Dyk by Wildes has added 54 bedrooms, a new luxury spa, Brasserie and ‘additional reception, which will become the main entrance to the hotel and three walled gardens, as part of the complete rebrand of the site in the grounds of the original Georgian house.
The newly-built space is set across three storeys and has been designed by SpaceInvador.
The 54 new bedrooms include 19 new luxury suites, and sit alongside a new bar, reception and Brasserie.
Outside, the grounds offer three separate areas including a walled garden for wedding celebrations.
The spa comprises treatment rooms, a sauna, and Jacuzzi.
Paul Wildes, CEO of the WILDES Group, comments: “The Van Dyk is uniquely positioned at the corner of three prominent counties, as such, it has not only attracted people from miles around for a number of years, it is also well and truly cemented in the local community. It was therefore vital for us that we maintained the essence of the hotel that has comforted people for so long, but also bring it into the 21st century.”
Alongside the extensive refurbishment, Van Dyk by Wildes has undergone a full rebrand.
The refurbishment is due to be completed in December 2019.
Wildes Group is a hospitality investment company and its hotels includes Holiday Inn Express in Wirral and Holiday Inn Express in Crewe.
