Grey Street Hotel in Newcastle has completed an 18-month phased refurbishment. Its owner, the Malhotra Group plc, invested £1.2m in the renovation.
The Grade II-listed building now has the capacity to accommodate corporate, leisure and spa visitors alike.
The hotel, which retains a number of historically features such as art nouveau tiling and mosaic flooring, remained open throughout the development. Works included the transformation of its 49 en-suite bedrooms.
For corporate customers, the hotel’s main conference room, Monument Suite, has been extended to hold up to 100 people and can be divided into smaller spaces. A smaller meeting room, The Snug, has been created for private events up to six people.
“This development goes way beyond cosmetic,” said Atul Malhotra, operations director at The Malhotra Group plc.
“Our challenge has been in providing the standard of luxury and comfort today’s hotel visitors expect, while respecting the building’s historical and architectural significance and I am confident we have achieved this,” Malhotra concluded.
There have also been changes to the hotel’s layout, including the relocation of the entrance and the creation of All About You, an urban beauty retreat in the upper basement.
