The Ramada Park Hall Hotel and Spa, which is nestled on the outskirts of Wolverhampton, overlooking the delightful Staffordshire countryside, has already had over £5 million invested in to it during the last 5 years since the current owners took over. There are further plans for investment and the push to move from a 4* rating to 4* plus.
Already boasting 2 restaurants, a health club & spa and extensively improved rooms, grounds and amenities, the new addition, to be called the Mirrors Bar, will see the entrance and ground floor transformed into a relaxed drinking and dining area with the hope of making surroundings more comfortable for in-house guests whilst attracting a new range of customers from the region and create a ‘destination’ type bar.
Alongside the structural and interior work, the reception and new bar renovation will see collaborations with local suppliers, brewers and artists and also create a number of new jobs. The work will see a new bar area, complete with custom fit bar, new seating areas and improved navigation around the hotel lobby included as well as elements such as new fireplaces and dining facilities.
Angela Bir, who took over the hotel with her partner in 2011, said of the investment, “When we first took over the hotel there was a lot of renovation and refurbishment work to do which we have achieved to a high standard, however customer expectations and demand are forever changing in the marketplace, which is why our customer centric approach focuses on satisfying our customers’ needs. This is clearly reinforced by the addition of our new bar and reception area, creating a much improved food and drink offering in brand new surroundings”
She added, “Wolverhampton and the surrounding areas are undergoing major investment and I am very happy to be able to be part of this. Since the start of the investment our occupancy rates have increased as have the number of weddings and conferences that we host which proves that the demand is there for a quality offering. I will always be looking to invest and improve our local community whilst bringing in guests from across the region.
The works on the new bar will take 3 weeks and will be finished on the 19th November with no adverse affects on the current hotel operations.
