The AA 4-Star Ye Olde Bell Hotel & Restaurant at Barnby Moor Nottingham moves up another pace with the addition of two brand new Luxury Lodges, The Grove & The Rufford. Guests celebrated with Champagne and Canapes at the opening by Jane Strawson, Senior Master of The Grove & Rufford Hunt.
Located in The Courtyard, each executive lodge has been built in traditional brickwork with hand carved oak features by Master Joiner, Darren West, and luxurious tartan décor by Tonia Wynne Interior Designer. Private owners, Paul & Hilary Levack have restored the hotel throughout with a passion to respect its long history to the 17th century, yet add a contemporary twist to bring it firmly into the 21st century, and the lodges blend perfectly.
Each lodge is 2-storey with a galleried bedroom, ensuite with roll-top bath and power shower, lounge and mini-kitchen. The luxurious double or twin beds are certainly ‘Fit for a King!’, as they were supplied by local family firm Healthbeds of Rotherham, manufacturers of Kate & William’s bed at Kensington Palace!
Kate Firth, General Manager, is thrilled with the impressive new addition to the hotel’s stylish rooms and suites. They make a perfect hideaway for two or the interconnecting doors open up at both levels to make one large lodge – ideal for friends and family get-togethers, bridal parties, sporting groups etc.
