The refurbishment, which is due for completion in mid-2016, will see 100 bedrooms renovated, as well as treatment rooms and the opening of the new Eden Spa. The refurbishment will take place in stages to ensure the hotel remains operational.

The new Eden Spa offers a range of modern facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, a mood-lit sauna, a state-of-the-art steam room with starry night feature lighting and a wellness power shower alongside spacious changing rooms. There will also be four new treatment rooms and a modernised gym that will house brand new equipment for cardio, weight and strength training.

The hotel’s kitchen has also been completely refitted with modern catering equipment, designed to help head chef Matthew Hill and his team deliver fine cuisine for conferences and events.

The hotel offers a range of meeting facilities for corporate clients including a boardroom, the traditional Looking Glass Room and a private dining area. It can accommodate groups of up to 200 guests for receptions, dinners, meetings and conferences and its packages include wi-fi access, lunch and coffee break facilities and a dedicated event co-ordinator.
