Barnett Hill enjoys successful launch event to unveil extensive renovation

A luxury four-star hotel has officially unveiled its new look, hosting a Champagne reception to celebrate the completion of an extensive two-year renovation, which has seen it transform into an indulgent getaway and luxury wedding venue.

Barnett Hill, situated on the edge of the Surrey Hills, has been undergoing the improvements since September 2016, having been purchased by Alexander Hotels – a hotel group that owns a collection of luxury venues. To mark the occasion of its re-opening and to provide an opportunity to showcase the extent of the new offering to its guests, the hotel hosted a Champagne and canapé reception – which allowed dozens of guests to explore the new amenities.

Alongside the refreshments, the team at Barnett Hill orchestrated private tours around the phase one renovation, which swept away its existing conference element to focus on luxury – as the hotel also revealed plans for a phase two renovation, which will revamp the hotel bar.

Peter Hinchcliffe, co-owner of Barnett Hill, said of the launch event: “The Champagne reception provided us with an excellent opportunity to showcase our new offering while also celebrating a job well done. It was fantastic to see so many people in attendance and we were delighted with the feedback, which was overwhelmingly positive.”

He added: “Now we’re looking forward to welcoming guests into our newly revamped venue, while also progressing with our plans to redevelop the bar to better reflect our renewed focus on luxury and indulgence.”

The launch event took place on the evening of Thursday 20th September, and allowed guests the opportunity to appreciate the extent of the upgrade to the beautiful Queen Anne-style country house, which was built in the 1900s by Frank Cook, the grandson of the renowned travel agent, Thomas Cook.

Phase 2 of the renovation is set to begin in the coming weeks, with further details to follow.
