Formerly known as The Falcon Hotel, the property has upgraded its internal facilities whilst preserving the heritage of its historic 16th-century exterior during a comprehensive refurbishment.
Construction firm Stepnell has completed a £13.2 million restoration on the Grade II listed Hotel Indigo Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire. The three-storey building, which features 93 guest rooms, is located in the heart of Shakespeare’s birthplace and dates back to the early 16th century.
Paul Fish, operations manager at Stepnell, said: “It’s been amazing to work on such an interesting project, helping to preserve a piece of history that can be enjoyed by the public. The work was incredibly specialist from a refurbishment perspective, so we had a real sense of achievement upon completion.”
“We faced a few challenges during the build regarding conservation and access to the site due to the historic nature of the hotel, but the team managed to push forward with the works and the outcome is truly stunning,” he added.
Simon Hall, operations director of the hotel’s owners St James’s Hotel Group, said: “While this extensive project has been challenging, the completed hotel is incredibly satisfying. Together we have brought a wonderful piece of local history back to life – the fantastic design from the architects and then the professionalism and dedication of Stepnell to deliver such a high quality finish has given us all a great sense of achievement which we are very proud of and excited to share with the many guests now coming to stay.
“This hotel is a prime example of how Hotel Indigo brings the outside in; drawing on the local neighbourhood to inspire every aspect of the Hotel. Whether in The Woodsman restaurant or our exclusive private garden, Hotel Indigo Stratford-upon-Avon is a great place for locals to gather with friends and family,” he added.
