AN award-winning hotel has unveiled the second part of its five-figure renovation project.

The investment at the Stanley House Hotel and Spa in Further Lane, Mellor, includes an extensive refurbishment of the multi-purpose function rooms, The Stables and The Lodge.

The bridal suites and a further two Manor House bedrooms have undergone complete transformations, offering guests four elegant Manor House suites.

The two function rooms, used for weddings, private events and for business conferences, have been furnished to the highest standards.

Meanwhile, the Manor House’s Grade II listed status has led to a tasteful restoration of the rooms, meaning many of the building’s original features, wooden beams and exposed stonework, remain.

The renovation means the Manor House rooms have been brought up to a standard in line with the international class of the hotel’s Woodlands and Spa building.

Philip Wharton, general manager of the 30-bedroom hotel in 54 acres, said: “Stanley House has become a premier wedding and events venue since we opened 13 years ago but it’s vital we keep investing and improving.

“The rooms complement the world-class facilities we have added to Stanley House over the past few years.

“With revitalised bridal suites and function rooms, the investment reaffirms that Stanley House truly is a destination of choice in the North. We’ve given guided tours to our forthcoming brides and grooms and we’re proud to see the joy on their faces.”

The project has been led by Lake District-based interior designer Sarah Jane Nielsen.

She said: “When I first viewed the Manor House I was spellbound with its potential.

“I wanted to inject a contemporary design edge to the property to excite the guest, but still hold on to its sophisticated intrigue with elegance in this age of building.”

A wedding open day is scheduled to be held on September 17 to show off the work.
