Quorn Grange hotel begins £4.9m extension

Quorn Grange hotel in Leicestershire has begun work on a £4.9m extension and redevelopment scheme.

The four-AA-starred hotel, which currently has 36 bedrooms and is owned by the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU) Educational Trust, is set to create 24 additional rooms, expand its function room, creating new meeting facilities and convert existing space into new offices. The project is expected to last a year.

The work is the latest in a series of improvements and upgrades at the hotel and follows refurbishment of the bar and restaurant areas.

Contractor J Tomlinson and architect firm Lapworth Architects are overseeing the project, which will also include the construction of 10 homes at the site.

GFTU Education Trust secretary Doug Nicholls said: "Companies, guests and charities who use our facilities have requested that we expand so we are. The hotel is in great demand and this development will allow us to offer additional high quality teaching and meeting rooms and function spaces.

"The new build programme is on a concealed part of the site, and we have liaised closely with J Tomlinson to ensure that the work will not disturb activities at the hotel or interrupt any of the award-winning landscaped garden views."

Martin Gallagher, managing director (construction) at J Tomlinson, added: "In conjunction with the hotel and the GFTU, we have developed a programme to cause minimum disruption, as we undertake the exciting redevelopment and extension of the facilities on site."
