A £1 million refurbishment project at the Lake District’s Rothay Manor hotel has been completed, just in time for the beginning of the spring and summer seasons.
Refurbishment embracing heritage
As part of a major renovation project this iconic Lake District Hotel has been rejuvenated with a fresh new look, whilst embracing its heritage.
The beautiful décor offers a perfect combination of a contemporary feel while remaining in-keeping with the hotel’s traditional exterior, further complimented by a fresh new look in the lounges and bar areas. The hotel also boasts the addition of a hot-tub to its Garden Suite room, for those seeking a little more luxury.
Under new ownership since early 2016, Rothay Manor’s new look embraces all the modern-life luxuries guests have come to expect during a relaxing and traditional 21st century getaway.
Private, landscaped gardens to explore
Rothay Manor is nestled in two acres of private, landscaped gardens in the famous walking town of Ambleside, with each room featuring modern amenities, a spacious bathroom and Noble Isle toiletries.
Three years work ‘well worth the effort’
Jamie Shail, who owns and manages Rothay Manor with his wife Jenna, says, “It’s been a long road for us to get to this stage, but as our guests will see, it’s been well-worth the effort. We wanted the hotel to be as beautiful inside as the surrounding area outside and made it our mission to achieve that goal from the moment we bought the hotel back in 2016.”
Jenna added, “We also spent a lot of time and effort to make our food offering more tempting than ever-before. It was the complete refurbishment of the restaurant, kitchen and lounge areas that really spurred us on to freshen up every bedroom; and now we’re on the verge of a completely fresh feel to the hotel. We really can’t wait to hear what our guests think of it!”
Modern English menu – triple AA Rosette restaurant
The traditional – yet modern feel is perfectly complimented by the hotel restaurant’s menu, described as “Modern English”, which was recently awarded triple AA Rosette status – making it one of only a handful of establishments to hold the accolade.
“We are so pleased with how the refurbishments have gone and, looking back, it shows us how far we’ve come over the last three years. So whether our guests are staying here overnight or enjoying a meal, we’re extremely confident they’ll have a rich and fulfilling experience”, Jamie added.
