The Feathers Hotel receives recognition

The Feathers Hotel has secured a spot in a coveted list of best places to stay in the UK.

The guide, published each year by national newspaper, The Times, has just unveiled its list of those top 80 that they believe to be the crème de la crème of best hotels in the UK; which includes everything from new openings and historic venues to swish spas and cosy pubs with rooms.

Each hotel in the list has been subject to the scrutiny of a seasoned hotel inspector who dined, stayed and used all the facilities as any other paying guest would; but they left no stone unturned in analysing and reviewing every aspect of the customer experience from the moment they walked through the door.

Sarah Tunnadine, Group Sales Manager for Crest Hotels said: “We are hugely honoured to be placed in such a respected list of best places to stay. Since our £2.5m refurbishment, which was only started last year, we have been overwhelmed with the response to the restoration. We wanted to really reflect the history and heritage of the grade 1 listed building whilst injecting a modern twist and contemporary feel and I really do believe we have done that to rave reviews from our guests.”

“Old-world charm that is paired with modern comforts”.

Described by The Times as having “old-world charm that is paired with modern comforts”. The Feathers is also credited with “having its original beams, stained glass and Jacobean coving which have been paired with a palette of creams, coppers and a regal peacock blue, breathing light and life into the old inn.”

The investment in the Feathers Hotel has seen the completion of all 42 luxuriously refurbished en-suite bedrooms which exude charm and history but with all of the modern comforts expected from a deluxe hotel. A combination of 17 classic bedrooms, 17 deluxe bedrooms and eight feature junior suites are available over two floors of the hotel.

Crest Hotels completed the purchase of The Feathers in December, 2018. The firm invested in excess of £2.5m to re-position the 42-bedroom property, which included the addition of a tea room to the front of the hotel, an aesthetic makeover to public areas, rooms and the function suites, as well as complete new plumbing throughout.
