Newcastle's Grey Street Hotel undergoing 1.2m refurb

The Grade-II listed Grey Street hotel in Newcastle is undergoing a £1.2m, 32-week phased development to transform it into a boutique spa and conference venue.

The first stage is the refurbishment of the hotel's 49 bedrooms, which have been individually styled with tributes to the city's heritage.

The hotel's owner, the Newcastle-based Malhotra Group, also plans to relocate the hotel entrance and introduce a street-front coffee shop on the ground floor. A 100-cover conference and event space will also be created in the lower basement along with a new spa, comprising three treatment rooms, a manicure and pedicure suite and a hair and beauty salon.

Work is expected to complete in May 2017. The hotel will be open throughout the development, and an additional 12 full- and part-time jobs will be created at the property.

The Malhotra Group invested £3m in refurbishment works across the Grey Street Hotel and the New Northumbria hotel one year after acquiring the Grey Street hotel in 2013 out of administration off a sale price of £3.75m.

Atul Malhotra, operations director at the Malhotra Group, said: "Our challenge has been in providing the standard of luxury and comfort today's hotel visitors expect, while respecting the building's historical and architectural significance. We very much want the hotel to be as appealing to passing custom as it is to residential visitors."
