We are pleased to announce that Champneys has acquired Mottram Hall in Cheshire and welcomes it to the growing portfolio of properties in the Champneys Group. The elegant countryside estate is home to 120 bedrooms, an innovative spa and championship golf club. Over the coming 12 months we are planning a £10 million refurbishment, including a £5 million redesign of the hotel’s current spa facilities, to make Mottram Hall the number one spa destination in Cheshire.
The redevelopment will include a 20m swimming pool, new wet and thermal experiences, plus the addition of 18 new treatment rooms. There are also plans for new conference facilities, an extension to the club house on the Championship golf course, and an increase in the number of bedrooms to 150.
Champneys’ owner Mr Stephen Purdew said, “Mottram Hall gives our brand a broader geographical spread with a presence in the North-West. It’s a fantastic property and we’re delighted to be adding it to our collection of properties within the Champneys Group. We’re now planning a considerable investment project which will take place over the next year.”
Built in 1721 by Nathaniel Booth, Mottram Hall was converted into a hotel in 1940. The tree fringed lake, elegant lawns and rose gardens at the rear of the Hall provide the perfect setting for wedding and outdoor functions. The formal gardens are surrounded by two hundred and seventy acres of parkland and create a restful atmosphere for conferences and leisure guests.
Mottram Hall’s General Manager, Deirdre Billing, said: “The hotel has a strong reputation in the region as Cheshire’s finest golf resort. I’m delighted the investment from Champneys will allow us to strengthen our offering and continue to position Mottram Hall within the luxury spa market.”
