The four-AA-star Crowne Plaza Marlow has begun an £8m refurbishment under its new owners to transform it into "one of the finest resorts under the Crowne Plaza brand".
The refurbishment of the 168-bedroom hotel in Buckinghamshire, recently acquired by Meridian Leisure Hotels, will include all bedrooms and public areas including the Glaze restaurant, which holds an AA rosette, the Aqua bar and conservatory. Its Winterlake Conference Centre and 10 meeting rooms will also undergo a complete redesign.
The project will be phased and the hotel remain operational; work is expected to be completed by Christmas. The work is being overseen by design studio Twenty2Degrees.
Meridian Leisure Hotels group managing director, Moez Janmohamed, said: "We are delighted with this investment and are excited to restore Crowne Plaza Marlow to its former glory. We are very proud of the hotel's heritage and the new design concept complements this, transforming the hotel into a venue of which Marlow can really be proud."Get The Caterer every week on your smartphone, tablet, or even in good old-fashioned hard copy (or all three!).
