Eden Hotel Collection Relaunch Bovey Castle
June 18th 2015 marked the Eden Hotel Collection’s unveiling of their £2 million transformation of Bovey Castle. The evening was held to celebrate the completion the first phase of five, on the path to transforming the iconic hotel to its full former glory.
The Eden Hotel Collection, AA Small Hotel Group of the Year 2014 / 2015, embarked on the restoration and refurbishment in January, less than six months after acquiring the award-winning country house estate in Dartmoor National Park.
Speaking about the renovation project, the Eden Hotel Collection’s Managing Director, Mark Chambers, says: “Very little money had been spent on the hotel before it was acquired by the Eden Hotel Collection so it looked really tired. Bovey Castle is stunning and needed to be brought back to its former glory but we didn’t want to just redecorate, we wanted to make a statement and take the hotel into an exciting new era.”
Weather on their side, the team at Bovey Castle entertained over 100 guests, who gathered on the terrace for Champagne and tastes from the newly refurbished Great Western Restaurant’s menu.
Guests enjoyed the sunshine and overlooked the terrific backdrop of Bovey’s estate and golf course, before watching a magnificent performance by The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, from the Commando Training Centre in Lympstone.
A wonderful evening was had by all and provided a suiting celebration for what will be one of the most exciting hospitality venues in the South West far into the future.
