It said the transformational project included a “major renovation” of the four-star hotel’s reception, Y Spa Bistro, and outdoor terrace, as well as the re-branding and refurbishment of the brasserie and bar. Three new event spaces were also added, which can be booked either separately or together, for corporate events, private functions, events, and social gatherings.
The hotel’s brasserie and bar now rebranded as The Gravel Pit – a nod to the resort’s past – offers a new lakeside dining experience in a contemporary setting. The menu is 40% plant-based and features locally sourced food, which is re-enforced with the 25-mile promise selection.
The bar provides an extensive drinks menu featuring a wide range of artisan gins, cocktails, lagers and wines. Outdoor seating has also been added for guests to enjoy views of the East Lakes in the summer months.
In addition, a flexible co-working area under the resort’s Landing Pad brand, has been added on the first floor as an alternative to Working From Home or travelling to the office.
The renovation follows a £5m investment in The Willows Training Centre and The Woodlands Event Centre where both centres were transformed into high-tech venues offering a wide range of event rooms with creative breakout areas and restaurant.
The 380-acre resort also comprises an 18-hole golf course, water sports lakes, a nature reserve, serviced offices, business units, and land for future enterprise.
MD Steve Jones said: “We have transformed The Waterfront Hotel’s key spaces through modern and smart design, centred around the needs of our customers. We are excited to offer new event spaces and co-working spaces for local businesses, too. We are always looking at ways to innovate to ensure our customers want to keep spending time with us in the future.”
