Barons Eden, the luxury hotel and spa group, is to begin reopening its Staffordshire property, Hoar Cross Hall, from 12 April following a £14m investment.
The 150-year-old property has seen the retreat’s 97 bedrooms, full-service spa and communal areas, all receive “significant upgrades” – which the group called its “most extensive refurbishment” in its history.
The group said the objective behind the multi-million overhaul, that spanned over two years, was to “update the property in line with its luxury offering, whilst maintaining the property’s rich history and heritage”.
In addition to the updated décor, the hotel and spa now offers freestanding baths in a selection of bedrooms, with some featuring hot tubs located on the private exterior terraces and the new Royal Suite Experience.
It added that guests that opt for the Royal Suite Experience will receive a private butler, cocktails served by the Suite’s personal barman, as well as an overnight stay for between one and eight guests in Hoar Cross Hall’s “most opulent suite”.
Guests will also experience fine dining in the hotel’s Grand Ballroom and full use of the extensive spa facilities including the saltwater vitality pool, hydrotherapy pool, aqua detox, aqua massage, sensory showers, cold plunge pool, Nordic Heat and Ice Suite, snooze room and sanctum.
The spa offering has also been completely overhauled, with a brand-new treatment list across its forty one treatment rooms.
Barons Eden director, Edward Law, said: “This is a significant investment for the Barons Eden group, as we wanted to ensure Hoar Cross Hall, as one of the biggest spa resorts in Europe, both met and exceeded expectations.
“We are expecting a huge surge in demand following a period of such uncertainty, and are already seeing an increase in bookings for the summer months and beyond. We know our guests are looking to treat themselves to an indulgent experience closer to home, as well as continue to focus on their health and wellbeing.”
