De Vere Wotton House in Surrey, part of the Principal Hotel Company, has unveiled its £6m renovation programme, which is part of a wider £50m investment project in the De Vere country estate hotels portfolio.
De Vere Wotton House will be one of around 20 country estate hotels and modern executive centres in the UK under the De Vere brand, each with a historic mansion at its heart and a proud British heritage.
The sympathetic renovation at the 17th century Dorking estate has been designed to place the historic Wotton House mansion back at the very heart of the venue, where traditional values combine seamlessly with modern day luxury.
De Vere Wotton House, which sits in 12 acres of stunning listed gardens, has completed all of its bedroom renovations, and has seen 16 new junior suites added to its inventory, all of which are located in the mansion house, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 127.
The hotel’s restaurant is also undergoing a full refurbishment, as well as the reception and public areas, and is due to be complete by the end of 2016, along with the hotel’s bar which is also undergoing a refresh.
Caroline Morrone, general manager at Wotton House, said: “As a popular venue for the meetings, conferences and private events market, the renovation project has been planned and designed to appeal to all our customers and provide a contemporary standout venue in stunning surroundings which pays homage to its history and heritage as a listed architectural building.”
De Vere Wotton House is off the A25 between Guildford and Dorking, just 10 minutes from Junction 9 of the M25.
The venue boasts 20 function rooms including The Evelyn Suite for up to 180 guests and The Wotton Suite for up to 200 guests. The venue has state-of-the-art event technology onsite including free hi-speed Wi-Fi and a dedicated events team and brigade of chefs on hand to create bespoke meetings and event menus.
