US boost for Buckland manor

Gloucestershire-based property Buckland Manor has seen a growth in Transatlantic guests after a series of renovations aimed with the US visitor in mind. Figures from the end of 2005 show the proportion of US visitors to have increased from 30% to 35% year-on-year. The country house hotel, a member of the von Essen collection, is in the midst of a two-year refurbishment programme due for conclusion in January 2007. It includes work to its historic dining room, renovations to increase bathroom sizes and newly installed power shower units in the majority of rooms. The property was recently voted Best Leisure Hotel in the British Isles at the recent Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, a poll with over 21,000 US-based travellers casting their vote. Buckland Manor GM Nigel Power said: "We have taken great lengths to invest in and invigorate the property over the last twelve months, to make it more appealing to our US visitors, a growing market for us. There is no greater accolade than receiving an award from your target audience."
