UK: Boutique hotel Stanwell House in Lymington, Hampshire has been granted planning permission to revamp the site with plans to reopen this winter.

A complete redesign of the bedrooms will take place and new en-suite bathrooms installed. 

Additional spaces for dining will also be created by repurposing part of the kitchen layout to extend the bar and bistro area. As such, the bar will be transformed into a reception area with the former bistro to house the bar.

A new seafood restaurant will offer a fine dining menu, the bar will serve gastro pub food, and afternoon tea will be held in the Orangery. Executive chef Chris Wheeldon will oversee the kitchen redevelopment.

Lance Bartlett, general manager of Stanwell House, said: “The refurbishment so far has been nothing less than meticulous in order to ensure our boutique hotel is of the highest standard.

“Working with a Grade II-listed building like Stanwell House requires striking the right balance between creating a contemporary environment, whilst also being sympathetic to its character and history. In addition, we have taken time and care to ensure that our plans are in keeping with the Georgian style of the building, as well as working with the local authority to obtain the necessary planning permission. We aim to not only improve the aesthetics of our hotel, but also widen our offerings to include welcome additions such as our new bar and events space.

“Ultimately, our main objective is to create a charming, welcoming and family-friendly space for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. Whilst our renovations are still on-going, we are excited to be able to share some of the amazing progress to give the general public a feel of what’s to come,” he added.
