The Grange Hotel in York has completed a “significant” refurbishment, which saw the addition of four new “premier” ground floor rooms.
The refurbishment has also turned the 41-bedroom hotel’s vaulted cellars into The Ivy Brasserie restaurant, and lifts have now been installed to all floors.
The rooms have been individually designed by the hotel’s co-owner Vivien Cassel ranging from classic country house bedrooms featuring four-poster beds with matching floral wallpaper and soft furnishings, to townhouse contemporary rooms with velvet sofas and armchairs.
A statement by the hotel read: “The hotel has been shortlisted for the 2019 York Design Awards, a prestigious award which celebrates the heritage of fine buildings in the city of York and encourages a high standard of design.
“The awards are judged by an independent panel of renowned national and international figures in architecture and design. The Grange Hotel has been recognised for its sensitive approach to restoration, maintaining many of the historical features of the existing Grade II listed building which are key to the hotel’s character.”
