Upgrades to its main conference, banqueting and wedding suite, the Barton Suite, will be completed in February, allowing it to cater for up to 300 delegates in a theatre-style layout or 250 for a banquet. The room will feature its own private entrance, foyer and cloakroom, along with full air-conditioning.

The work will follow improvements to the hotel’s five other meeting rooms, which can host events for two to 300 people.
During the first phase of the refurbishment, the four-star property upgraded its 51 bedrooms to include individual Sky TV boxes, free high-speed fibre Wi-fi, handmade British EPOC mattresses, Ruark bluetooth speakers and Nespresso coffee machines in all executive and superior rooms.

The hotel has appointed a new general manager, Daniel Rich, who joins from The Holiday Inn in Preston, ahead of the second phase of the refurbishment.
