Horwood House completes £20m refurbishment

The Grade II-listed Horwood House hotel in Buckinghamshire is set to reopen on 17 May following an extensive £20m refurbishment.

Ziz Properties, which acquired the hotel in 2019 off a guide price of £15.5m from Starwood Capital, has invested in the hotel's lounges, spa and 165 bedrooms and suites, alongside introducing two new dining concepts.

The property has been redeveloped in partnership with design studio ICA to create new interior concepts informed by the hotel's 110-year history and 38 acres of landscaped gardens.

Also opening in May at the property will be Harry's Bar & Kitchen, with a seasonal menu showcasing locally sourced and home-grown ingredients, with a more refined dining offering opening later in the year.

A standalone luxury spa featuring a 12-metre indoor pool, treatment suites, gym and sauna will open over the summer, while the property's function suites have also been redesigned for weddings, as well as corporate and private events.

Karim Kassam, owner of Ziz Properties, said: "Horwood House has a unique history and spectacular gardens. We are breathing new life into the estate, preserving the hotel's character but elevating the rooms, food and beverage spaces and spa, in line with modern expectations. Our vision is to establish Horwood House as one of the UK's leading independent country house hotel destinations and, with the pent-up demand for staycations and weddings, we are looking forward to a busy summer and rest of the year."
