Lea Marston Hotel unveils new look after £2m investment
A family-owned Sutton Coldfield hotel has undergone a major expansion with the addition of 30 new bedrooms and luxury suites, representing a significant investment of almost £2million in the local economy.
Set in 75 acres, the award-winning Lea Marston Hotel now boasts an impressive 118 luxury ensuite rooms, as well as extensive wedding, spa, conferencing and event facilities.
The additional superior, executive and luxury suites have been provided in a brand new extension to the hotel, spanning two floors and overlooking the golf course.
All 30 air-conditioned rooms have been styled by local designer Ilze Reinke, based in No Mans Heath, and feature warm contemporary interiors, cutting edge technology and the little luxuries that are in keeping with Lea Marston Hotel’s ethos of providing a warm welcome.
As well as the new build, the hotel has been given a brand new look with extensive refurbishment throughout. An additional 30 members of staff have been taken on to help keep day-to-day operations running smoothly as the business goes through this latest phase of growth.
The new look and new rooms were unveiled at a special launch party last week attended by 100 guests and visitors, including suppliers, corporate customers and the hotel’s long-standing health club members.
Guests were treated to performances from Wolverhampton singer Shaun Moore, as well as food and refreshments from a range of local businesses, before taking a tour of the new facilities.
A raffle held during the evening raised £245 which is being donated to Woodlands School for pupils with additional needs, in Coleshill.
Lea Marston Hotel sales and marketing director, Phillip Allsopp, said:
“As a family-run hotel group, we are always looking to grow and expand our offering in order to maintain our reputation as one of the best independent hotels in the Midlands.
“With so much to offer here at Lea Marston Hotel and in the wider surrounding area, demand is always high and the new rooms represent one of our most significant investments to date. Although the additional facilities have only been available for a few weeks, we have already had nights where we have been sold-out across the hotel, which is fantastic news for the area.
“This is an exciting time for us as we are also launching a new brand which further complements our company vision, mission and values of promoting our personality and warmth as a leading family business at the heart of the community.
“I would like to thank all the suppliers and staff involved in the new bedroom block, but most of all our thanks goes to the wonderful team of people here at Lea Marston who have worked so hard to get things ready in time for our opening. We look forward to welcoming many more guests to stay at Lea Marston Hotel in the future.”
Lea Marston Hotel and golf club was purchased by the Blake family from Sutton Coldfield in 1989. At that time it consisted of a 21-bedroom hotel and a ‘pitch and putt’ golf course. Since then it has rapidly grown year on year and now offers 118 contemporary ensuite bedrooms, extensive meeting and conference facilities, banqueting rooms and weddings.
