Down Hall Country House Hotel, on the Hertfordshire and Essex borders, unveiled its £1.5m refurbished West Wing at its Summer Showcase, 24 April.
Officially re-opened by the Town Mayor of Bishop’s Stortford, Cllr Janice Elliott, the West Wing refurbishment included the renovation of 71 bedrooms, a kitchen refit and installation of a high-tech gym with adjoining sauna and steam room facilities. An additional investment of £150,000 is going into a refurbishment of the hotel’s meeting rooms with four conference rooms to be completely redecorated.
Down Hall GM Andrew Oxley, said: “We are thrilled to have the West Wing ceremonially re-opened by the Town Mayor. The completion of the refurbishment enables us to reinforce our position as a four-star superior hotel with excellent meeting and event facilities.”
A hundred guests including corporate clients, local business owners and event agencies attended the summer inspired event.
The Motivaction Group, specialists in corporate teambuilding, showcased both the new and established teambuilding activities available at the hotel. Guests had the opportunity to try their hand at laser clays, get involved in a GPS tablet trail, solve clues to crack a safe, create a business empire and keep it on track and make their own chocolate creations.
All of Down Hall’s 26 meeting rooms and event spaces were styled for guest show rounds as were a selection of executive bedrooms in the West Wing.
