Down Hall Country House Hotel completes £1.5m revamp

Down Hall Country House Hotel, on the Hertfordshire and Essex border, has spent £1.5m on a major refurbishment, including all the hotel's 71 bedrooms and kitchen. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>

Over £200,000 of the budget was spent on the kitchen, while there has also been a revamp of the gymnasium, which now features Technogym exercise machines.

Aiming for "classic country house meets contemporary lifestyle", the décor has focused on country colours and a modern style, without losing the hotel's historical details or character.


Anna Snoep, director of sales and marketing at Down Hall Hotel, said: "The refurbishment has achieved our goal to further advance the hotel's position as a four star superior residential meeting and event venue."


With its main building dating back to 1322, the hotel is owned by Veladail Hotel Group and is a sister property of Flemings Hotel in Mayfair. It hit the news earlier this year after two guests were found to have drowned in the hotel pool.
