Hampshire MoD property set for hotel conversion

UK: Amport House, near Andover in Hampshire, will be converted in to a hotel by the Another Place group.

The property will become the brand’s second Another Place hotel, having previously been a British armed forces chaplaincy centre. It will join Another Place in Ullswater, Cumbria, and Watergate Bay in Cornwall in the group’s portfolio.

The deal was won through a formal tender process. The 1857 building features listed gardens designed by Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll. If planning is granted, construction will begin in Q1 2021, with an opening date planned for early 2022.

The property have around 50 bedrooms, two restaurants and bars, a swim club and an Ofsted-registered kids’ zone.

“It will be different from Another Place, The Lake through reflecting its heritage and making the most of the magnificent garden,” explains Will, “but with the same relaxed style of hospitality and atmosphere our brand is known for,” said Another Place CEO Will Ashoworth. “It’s a charming location, sitting in lovely rolling Hampshire countryside, close to Stonehenge, in a magnificent village. Being on the A303, just an hour outside London, I feel we will be able to draw on a significant new market that we don’t currently reach.”
