£300,000 facelift for Bedford Lodge & Spa
The conference and banqueting suite at the Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa in Newmarket has recently undergone a lavish £300,000 facelift.
The hotel, which was recently awarded the coveted 4AA red stars, upgrading its rating from 4AA black stars, is transforming its Classics Suite, which holds up to 180 guests.
The meeting room features back-lighted ceiling coffers plus large, modern crystal chandeliers and remote-controlled spotlights that can be customised to set any mood.
A large, modern mural now adorns the back wall.
On the technology side, the hotel’s AV system has been upgraded to include Bose speakers throughout; projectors have been ceiling mounted for effortless presentations and the Classics Bar, which sits at the entrance to the Classics Suite, and has been adapted to make use of natural light.
The work was completed just in time for the festive season and represented another milestone in revamping the stylish hotel.
In 2013, the venue opened a £5.5 million luxury destination Spa on the site following the addition of a dance studio and refurbishment of The Edge Health and Fitness Club, also on the premises.
Chief Executive Noel Byrne, who oversaw the whole process along with the Kean family, who own the property, from inception to design said: “We are delighted to announce the major refurbishment and enjoyed welcoming our Christmas, conference and wedding guests into a completely modern and updated space.
“We are the only 4-star hotel in Newmarket and feel this significant investment will continue to make us the Suffolk destination for weddings and conferences.”
