Oatlands Park, the four-AA-star hotel in Surrey which was a former palace for Henry VIII, is nearing the end of a £10m, four-year refurbishment.
More than £10m has been spent to date, with additional plans for a luxury, multimillion-pound spa, further conference rooms and 33 bedrooms seeking planning permission.
The works so far at the Weybridge property include a new glass ceiling guest foyer; a new restaurant and bar, the Mulberry and Bar 1509; and the refurbishment of 120 of the 144 bedrooms; as well as improvements to its meeting rooms and conferences spaces and new landscaping in the grounds.
Përparim Rama from 4M Group was the lead consultant in the design of the lobby and lobby bar; while Penny Patterson from Make It So Design was the lead designer for the Mulberry Suite, bedrooms and meeting spaces.
General manager Ness Sekakmia said: "Our objective was to create a fresh new look and feel, by carefully preserving the rich royal history of the building and estate, whilst sympathetically adding contemporary facilities of the highest possible standard. We believe that we have succeeded in our mission to create a truly unique facility that will provide exceptional experiences for our guests for many years to come."
