Four-star hotel Bridgewood Manor is set to unveil a refreshed new look later this year following an extensive refurbishment which represents a £500,000 investment. 

Work has started on the hotel, which is operated by leading UK hotel management company RBH, and is set to transform the entire hotel – from its bar and public areas to the guest rooms and bathrooms.

The reception and lobby will be completely renovated with new carpets, flooring, window dressings and furniture as well as all previously stained woodwork being replaced with clean paint finish.

By restructuring the layout of the public areas including removing small walls at the entrance and positioning the reception desk as free standing, designers hope to achieve a warmer welcome.

The furniture in the bar area will be upcycled and all window dressings, flooring and artwork will be replaced. These updates will provide the ideal, modernised and relaxing setting for all occasions. Guests can enjoy Starbucks coffee, leisurely lunches and afternoon teas or a tempting pre-dinner cocktail or post-dinner aperitif in the revamped Squires Bar.

The first phase of guestrooms in the hotel will be completely redecorated with new carpets, flooring, feature wallpaper, lighting and curtains. Nightstands, desks, TVs and wardrobes in each room will also be replaced.

Initially 25 bathrooms will also be revamped with full height tiling, new mirrors and ceiling lighting, while the existing baths will be replaced with walk-in showers.

Marc Taylor, General Manager at Bridgewood Manor, said:

We recently refreshed our brand identity and this extensive refurbishment brings everything in line to offer our guests and diners the best possible experience with us.

The surrounding woodland and garden areas of the hotel have inspired the interiors and we can’t wait to unveil our new look and welcome everyone to the new and improved Bridgewood Manor.”

Alongside the refurbishment and refreshed brand identity, Bridgewood Manor has launched a new loyalty programme – Bridgewood Rewards. The new loyalty card will see guests collect reward points from use of accommodation, food and beverage services and spa facilities which can then be redeemed against future experiences.  

Gregor MacNaughton, Director of Technical Services at RBH, said:

By investing in our hotels it demonstrates our continued commitment to enhancing the offering across our growing portfolio.

Works like this improve returns for our owners whilst ensuring our hotel guests receive the best possible quality and service when they stay at any of our properties.”   

All refurbishment works at Bridgewood Manor are due to be completed in December 2018.
