The new Tewkesbury Park hotel completes the second phase of its extensive two year renovation plans at a cost of £4 million, with the brand new addition of nine luxury historic brand new suites, two meeting rooms, and a plush new orangery and Cocktail Lounge.

The McIntosh family, who bought the hotel in 2014, are to be congratulated for having the vision and belief in its business potential and the team in delivering a first class hospitality experience. Not only are we a great leisure hotel, with an 18-hole golf course and leisure club, but with the investment that has been poured into our meeting facilities, coupled with our superb location, logistically we are perfect for the corporate user.

The Continued re-development work to the main foyer and reception is scheduled for completion late spring. Two new spa rooms will be finished early summer. Commenting; Patrick Jones, the new general manager, said: “We are thrilled with the results so far, the hotel is undergoing a complete renaissance and deserves to be brought back to the magnificent property it once was.

Cleverly utilizing the property’s historic features, by employing the original structures and grand fireplaces, the décor is regal, yet contemporary, without being too pretentious. Besides the generous bedrooms where king-size beds await, bathrooms are palatial, with the addition of opulent slipper bathtubs taking pride of place in the bathrooms of King Richard III and King Edward IV Suites. For guests who love the idea of luxuriating in an extravagant bath, the Margaret of Anjou suite’s copper slipper bath won’t disappoint. Lie back and soak up the magnificent views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Luxuriously appointed by reputed interior designer, ADS-Design, who have skilfully drawn upon the historical legacy by working to subtly weave in the area’s story. All suites take their namesakes from key characters who fought in the AD1471 Battle of Tewkesbury, when the Yorkists defeated their rivals, the Lancastrians. Besides the famous historic link, Zoffany and Osbourne & Little fabrics and soft furnishings reflect the Tewkesbury surrounds; warm soft country tones complement carefully sourced contemporary fixtures and fittings, conveying a rich and distinguished countryside ambience.

Further new additions include the Duke of Gloucester and Earl of Warwick meeting rooms, which have dramatically been transformed by celebrated interior designer, Jane Clayton & Company. Enjoy a working breakfast, a leisurely coffee, or indulgent Bellini Champagne and take in the stunning views that stretch out across to Tewkesbury Abbey, Malvern Hills and the pretty Gloucestershire countryside.

Besides the multi-million pound new additions, the first phase saw all 85 guestrooms receive a complete refurbishment with plush new interiors, new Hypnos beds and 40” inch Smart TVs. “Touch of Class” executive doubles and twins are ideal for corporate guests with Nespresso coffee machines, while family and interconnecting rooms are perfect for leisure guests. Conference and banqueting suites accommodate up to 200 guests. Furthermore, the hotel’s terrace which benefits from panoramic views of Tewkesbury and beyond, will have a hot tub and Alexander Rose furniture, allowing guests the chance to relax and take in the views and watch fellow guests play croquet on the lawns.

Tewkesbury Park has an 18-hole par 73 parkland golf course, academy course and practice range, putting green and pro shop. The Leisure Club which features a sauna, steam room, indoor swimming pool, gym, squash and tennis courts, will receive an upgrade later this year.

Tewkesbury Park is only five minutes from M5 junction nine, on the doorstep of Tewkesbury and within easy reach of Cheltenham, Gloucester and Worcester.
