Midlands-based hotel Chateau Impney Hotel and Exhibition Centre has concluded the first phase of a £1m refurbishment programme. The Grade II listed Chateau was bought out of administration in July last year by Birmingham-based Greyfort Properties.
The three-month programme has seen the 106-bedroom property refurbish a quarter of its accommodation, while preserving the Chateau’s historical features. Improvements have also been made to the hotel’s function rooms, reception and bar areas and ornamental gardens. In addition the hotel has been rebranded and a new website has been launched.
“When the new owners purchased the Chateau last year, they knew they were buying a property steeped in history, with lots of potential but in need of some TLC and modernisation,” says General Manager Ben Elder. “From the outset they made a clear commitment to put the property back on the map.”
The next phase of work has already commenced and will see the refurbishment of the remaining bedrooms in the main Chateau building, its 41 courtyard rooms and nine self-catering apartments.
Elder says while the Chateau is well known for its hotel facilities, the property’s conference and exhibition facilities have been under used and the management team hopes to rectify this with the extensive upgrade.
“While many people in the region will know Chateau Impney for its hotel facilities, most will be unaware of the sheer scale of our on-site exhibition complex,” he says.
