New owners plan major upgrades at Newmarket hotel
Review Hotels Ltd, which acquired the 3-star Rutland Arms Hotel at the top of Newmarket’s high street last month, is promising to underwrite a significant improvements programme inside and out.
The company, which also owns Newmarket’s 4-red star Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa, bought the former coaching inn for an undisclosed sum.
Noel Byrne, chief executive at Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa, said: “Rutland Arms Hotel is an iconic part of Newmarket’s high street and is a great addition to our portfolio.
“The distinctive property is built around an attractive cobbled courtyard and dates back to the 17th century. Over the next three years we plan to embark on a significant refurbishment programme for the hotel, which will include extensive reparation works to the exterior and interior of the building.”
The Rutland Arms Hotel comprises 46 bedrooms, a restaurant and bar, courtyard terrace and conference & event facilities for up to 60 delegates.
