Sparkling new looks to delight guests

The Europa Hotel in Belfast

Belfast’s iconic Europa Hotel is wowing guests with superb rooms after a £10 million refurbishment programme. Some 100 front-facing superior bedrooms, 80 classic bedrooms and five Suites have been completely redesigned and upgraded. The work has included new furnishings and bathrooms, automated window blinds and rooms are now individually air-conditioned. Classic rooms have new King Cloud Beds and superior rooms have Super King Cloud Beds.

The Europa, part of the Hastings Hotels group, worked with local companies RPP Architects and Interiors and Floor Design to create the vision and Graham Construction delivered the renovation programme.

A major project at Radisson Hotel York has resulted in new flooring, furniture and soft furnishings as well as the addition of self-service check-in desks. There is also new décor, showcasing neutral tones and sleek design throughout the hotel, reflecting the Radisson brand’s Scandinavian roots. All guest rooms are fitted with Chromecast technology so guests can access their Netflix account and other streaming services. Previously known as Park Inn by Radisson York City Centre, this is the first Radisson hotel in the North of England and the second in the UK, joining Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre London Heathrow. The eight-storey York property sits on the banks of the River Ouse and is the second tallest building in York, preceded only by York Minster.

Country estate hotel and spa Matfen Hall in Northumberland has reopened after completion of a five months’ restoration project thought to have seen £15 million invested. The Grade II listed property, owned by the Walwick Estate Group, has 65 rooms and five dining areas and is now looking to expand its spa and golf offering. During the project the historic Great Hall was restored, and a new bar and terrace created, alongside work such as introducing a state-of-the-art kitchen.

Norfolk’s Blakeney Manor Hotel and Inn is now reopen following last year’s purchase by The Coaching Inn Group. All 36 rooms have been renovated and refurbished, as well as the welcoming lounge area. The guests will enjoy all this, but the other good news is that 20 new roles were created.

AGO has opened its first Central London hotel, The Rove London Paddington, with 75 newly refurbished bedrooms. The hotel is likely to serve tourists visiting the city who like major attractions on their doorstep and business travellers looking for a convenient place to stay before or after a busy day of meetings.
