Work has got underway on a £1 million renovation of The Greenway Hotel & Spa in Cheltenham which will see new life breathed into all 21 bedrooms.

Each room will be individually styled around characterful features including existing fireplaces and timber beams, blended with distinct new colour schemes.

Floor layouts will be carefully redesigned to maximise space and create larger bathrooms for guests.

The Eden Hotel Collection, which owns the boutique four-star hotel, is carrying out the refurbishment in stages to ensure the hotel remains open to guests, with final completion expected in January 2023.

The project is being led by Director of The Eden Hotel Collection Marian Cartter, who heads up the group’s design team, assisted by interior designer Lucy Yarwood.

Lucy said: “We are really thrilled to finally start this work.

“It has been a real labour of love to help shape how this will look over the past months, and the key for me has been about creating spaces which are warm and inviting for our guests, and make the best of the charming features in each room.

“Both the bedrooms and the bathrooms are being completely refurbished with vibrant schemes and an opulent design which will enhance guests’ experiences. I am certain our guests will love the new look and feel.”

Mark Chambers, Managing Director at The Eden Hotel Collection, added: “We are really proud of Greenway’s existing offering but we are continually looking at ways to improve the experience of our guests.

“Our work at Greenway is now one of several major projects underway within the Group and marks an exciting period for us all, driving further investment into the business to help our hotels remain firmly at the top of the UK’s luxury boutique sector.”

The announcement follows hot on the heels of The Greenway Hotel confirming Craig Routledge as its new General Manager, joining from sister hotel Brockencote Hall Hotel in Worcestershire.

Midlands firm Builtec Developments Limited, based in Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, has been awarded the contract for the refurbishment programme.
