The four star hotel, set within a converted Georgian building and chapel in Essex, is undergoing a £1m renovation to restore the building to its former glory and update its rooms and dining areas.
So far, 28 of the hotel's 61 bedrooms have been refurbished with bespoke furniture, Sealey beds, refitted bathrooms and environmentally friendly LED lighting being installed.
Dining and drinking
The hotel's restaurant and bar has also been transformed into an open-plan area to make the dining space more versatile and former Vale Hotel head chef Adrian Codreanu has joined the Prince Regent's brasserie-style restaurant as head chef, introducing a new menu using locally-sourced produce.
Menzies Hotels chairman Niall Geoghegan said: “The significant investment we’ve made in the hotel cements our on-going commitment to being one of the leading hotels for leisure and business travellers in the greater London area. The introduction of our new bedrooms and public areas will ensure guests enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay”
The renovation is part of Menzies Hotels' investment into its properties following a management buyout in 2011. The group's flagship property, The Welcombe Hotel, Spa and Golf Club in Stratford-upon-Avon, Menzies Carlton and Menzies East Cliff Court, both in Bournemouth, have all been subjected to investment so far.
