Village hotel given a £20 million revamp
Bellhouse now to be known as a Crowne Plaza
A VILLAGE hotel is set to reopen following a £20m refurbishment under a new name.
The hotel, on Oxford Road, was formerly known as the Bellhouse Hotel, but will open its doors as the Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross this autumn following the work.
A stage by stage refurbishment, the wave spa and the 138 bedrooms have already been completed.
This means that the hotel itself has been operational throughout the refurbishment.
The official reopening, complete with the name change, is set for September, to coincide with the completion of the meetings and events space. BMW Group company Designworks have been commissioned to create this conference space, which consists of two conference and banqueting spaces, six meeting rooms, a creative attic, breakout bar and a landscaped garden.
Part of the restoration works have also included a restaurant and bar, which will be called 1269, to open in July.
Named after the year Beaconsfield was given a charter allowing an annual market for trading livestock, the head chef will be Dean Crews, formerly of the Charing Cross Hotel, London, and features include a whisky vault and a freshly hung meat display.
This will have been designed by interior design company Superfutures and will specialise in livestock, game and butcher-style preparations.
The spa and wellness centre opened in May and offers an array of treatments complete with juice bar.
General manager David Jones said: “Following an exciting and extensive refurbishment programme and inauguration into the Crowne Plaza fold, we hope to offer new and returning guests a quality and trusted service with a very distinct identity.”
