A country house hotel and spa, which was recently acquired by the family behind the Cofresh snacks empire, is being renamed.
Barnsdale Hall Hotel in Rutland was bought last year by Dineshbhai and Savitaben Patel – co-founders of the Leicester-based Asian snack foods empire.
Since then the 66 bedrooms, restaurant and bar areas have been given a make-over, and the waterside venue has been rebranded as Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa.
The hotel, which was closed in line with the Government’s coronavirus guidance, has used the opportunity to push ahead with a multi-million pound refurbishment, transforming the venue.
Ahead of its re-opening, management have revealed the new name, website and updated brand colours, as well as a new crest that is a nod to Rutland’s rich heritage and the hotel’s new owners.
John Higham, director and general manager of the hotel, said: “The team has been working towards this moment for many months and we are thrilled to finally reveal the details of our rebranding to Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa.
“With the hotel under new ownership and much of its offering being reimagined and refurbished during the lockdown, it seemed the perfect time for a complete brand overhaul.
“Although re-opening with a different name, a crisp new look and upgraded facilities, our dedication to providing guests with an unforgettable experience remains unchanged.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming guests and giving them the chance to experience the new and improved Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa first-hand.”
As the internal makeover draws to an end, visitors will soon be able to enjoy the updated venue, which has also appointed Sumit Chakrabarty as its new executive head chef.
Mr Chakrabarty hopes to reinvigorate the hotel’s food offering, providing delicacies with a refined, international twist sure to be loved by both locals and visitors from afar.
He said: “I’m delighted to have joined the culinary team at Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa, especially at this exciting time of transformation.
“I’m currently working with management on building a strong kitchen team that, I hope, will inspire each other’s creativity and ultimately enable us to establish Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa as the go-to destination for food and drink in this area”.
As well as updates to the hotel’s internal spaces, Rutland Hall Hotel and Spa is making changes to much of its landscape and vast grounds, which feature tennis courts, an 18-hole crazy golf course and beautiful views over Rutland Water.
Other leisure facilities include a spa, swimming pool, gym and an on-site hair salon – a new addition to the hotel.
Guests can already book lodge breaks and dining, and leisure facilities, such as the spa and new hair salon, are also open.
The main hotel is expected to re-open in November.
