Sopwell House, in St Albans, has been given a slick facelift, taking it from “understated chic to the next level of contemporary, country house glamour”.

The refurbishments include updates to the Reception area, which now boasts timber floors, a granite countertop and an eclectic mix of sumptuous furnishings and contemporary art.

The Cocktail Lounge and Terrace Bar have also both been overhauled and transformed into sophisticated, timeless rooms that are the ideal setting for a relaxed afternoon tea or late night cocktail.

Thirty of the hotel’s 129 bedrooms are newly renovated and pave the way for two new room categories at the property; an Executive Suite with Balcony and the Executive Bedroom, both are ideal romantic getaways. Facilities in these rooms include new marble bathrooms, baths made for two, king size beds, boutique design and LCD TVs with SKY HD.

Speaking about the revamp Marleen Mason, director of sales at Sopwell House, said it was “a well-earned investment for the well-established and much loved Sopwell House”.

She added: “Following a long planning process, [it is] an extremely exciting time for our existing and potential clients to enjoy our tremendously improved facilities and services.

“The team and I very much look forward to welcoming you.”

The hotel will also host a wedding fayre on Sunday, November 17 and again Sunday, January 26 next year.
