Dormy House hotel to close for six months for £5m refurbishment

Dormy House, one of the highest profile hotels in the Cotswolds, is to close in November to undergo a £5m refurbishment.

The four-star, 43-bedroom hotel will reopen in spring 2013 following an extensive programme of work involving all the public spaces and most of the bedrooms.

Originally a 17th-century farmhouse, the property was converted to a hotel 35 years ago and has been owned since then by the Philip-Sørensen family.

General manager David Field, who has been at the hotel for 30 years, said: "We have been open since 1977 and, although the hotel has received significant investment before, this is the first time we will close for work to be done.

"What is particularly exciting for me, after 30 years at the Dormy, is that the high quality of our offer will be boosted further, yet we will still retain the traditional welcome and impeccable service that has always been our hallmark."

Guests will be able to follow the progress of the hotel's refurbishment via the website

Dormy House is a member of Pride of Britain and Cotswolds Finest Hotels.
