The Burford Bridge Hotel in Box Hill re-opened on Monday September 1st . I might much value your after an extensive nine-month restoration programme following flooding over the Christmas 2013.
The historic hotel, set within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, reopened at a special ceremony, with Mole Valley District Council chairman Emile Aboud having the honour of cutting the ribbon.
Jonathan Sheard, from Accor UK & Ireland, said the hotel staff could not wait to reopen the building after a lengthy refurbishment.
“We have certainly missed our interaction with the local community and we are anxious to regain our place at the heart of the Surrey Hills community. We are delighted to be opening this Monday with a hotel that has been transformed thanks to an extensive refurbishment and the property now enjoy a completely different feel,” he said.
The refurbishment of the hotel has seen the designers recognise its local roots in Box Hill. The hotel has used flint from the local area and antiques from across Surrey and all artwork has been based on local scenes. Even the armchairs in the lobby pay reverence to the poet John Keats who wrote the classic poem Endymion at the hotel.
Chefs are also developing menus to include locally inspired elements pertaining to both food and drink.
