Lodore Falls hotel in Borrowdale, Cumbria, has reopened following the completion of the first phase of an £8m refurbishment programme.
The hotel, which is owned by the Lake District Hotels group, closed for six weeks during which time the entire ground floor – including its lobby, lounge and restaurant – has been refurbished in a completely new style.
The company said the new décor reflects the local landscape in texture and colour, with designs featuring slate and wood with palettes of soft green and purple contrasting with burnt orange.
Dani Hope, marketing director of Lake District Hotels, said: “We are delighted with the new look of the hotel, a lot of time and work has gone into the project, from the initial planning, to the hard work from local tradesmen, along with many of our employees, who have worked tirelessly to get the hotel up and running in time.”
The second phase of the refurbishment has also started, with the property expected to reveal its newly refubsihed garden suite function room and conservatory extensions in June.
Following that there will be two more phases to the refurbishment, with a brand new brasserie opening in December and the addition of a new spa and 14 bedroom suites in spring 2018.
