As well as its public areas, the hotel’s £5 million refurbishment includes all 148 of its bedrooms, and the creation of 3 new luxurious suites, bringing a level of quality to guests not seen in the hotel for over 2 decades.
The refurbishment also includes all the Spa and Leisure facilities and over 520 square meters of event space, focused on restoring its popular main event room – The Park Suite – to the standard demanded by today’s conference and events bookers. The room offers outstanding views over the Lilly Brook Lake and golf course and can look after up to 320 guests for anything from a large corporate meeting to a wedding or private party.
The hotel was purchased by Sir David Michels in 2015 and is run by Michels & Taylor, one of the country’s leading hotel management companies.
Sir David Michels said:
“I have wanted to bring this wonderful hotel back to its rightful position as one of Cheltenham’s leading hotels, since I bought it and I think our guests are going to be delighted with the results. Doubletree by Hilton is a leading brand and we are confident that the refurbished hotel will meet the quality and consistently high levels of service that our guests expect of us”.
Syed Zaidi, General Manager of the new DoubleTree by Hilton Cheltenham added:
“We now have a product of which we can be truly proud, and my team and I are looking forward to welcoming our guests to this much loved hotel and looking after them in these new first class surroundings.”
The hotel is formally being launched by Sir David Michels, as DoubleTree by Hilton Cheltenham at a ribbon cutting ceremony on 4th May 2017 from 12-2pm.
