The existing sea front hotel has 41 keys, a large a la carte restaurant and a small, dated leisure facility. The hotel is being refurbished to provide 45 keys including new ‘Verandah rooms’ and three fully accessible guest rooms, a 100 cover a la carte restaurant and dining terrace, a Strand Bar and function room, a guest lounge with co-working facilities, new public WC's and a billiard Room. The hotel gym and wellness spa, designed by Translation Architecture, is being converted from the existing leisure centre to provide treatment rooms, a vitality pool and thermal cabins all opening off a dramatic, light-filled central atrium.
The refurbishment is being undertaken on a fast-track programme with the hotel remaining in operation throughout. This has required careful phasing to ensure that disruption is minimised to guests and hotel operations, and a full F&B service is available to residents throughout. The building’s thermal and acoustic performance is being upgraded on a ‘fabric first’ basis to reduce energy demand driven by solar gain and heat loss.
A few photographs from the hotel's completed first phase are posted to this page.
