Rudding Park to add 34 bedrooms in £8m upgrade

Rudding Park hotel in Harrogate, Yorkshire, is embarking on a major £8m expansion programme with plans for additional bedrooms and leisure facilities.

The Hotel Catey award-winning hotel has appointed DLG Architects to oversee the project, which will add 34 bedrooms to the privately-owned hotel as well as a spa with five treatment rooms and gym facilities.

Peter Banks, managing director of the 49-bedroom Rudding Park, which won the Conference and Banqueting Award at the Hotel Cateys last year, told Caterersearch the expansion is expected to take up to a year to complete.

"The hotel will remain open during the expansion," he said.

"We are fortunate to have luxury lodges on the estate which we can use instead of the main rooms during the most disruptive times."

Banks also hinted at a further £8m expansion in the next two to three years which would add further rooms and facilities such as extending the spa's five treatment rooms to 14.
