Bartley Lodge transformed
Tue 02 August 2011
Last Friday the new Lyell wing of the hotel opened with 14 new bedrooms to choose from.
The wing is fittingly named after famous geologist Charles Lyell, whose home this used to be. Lyell was a man who not only changed the way the world viewed the formation of the Earth, but was also an influential friend of Charles Darwin. The colour schemes and designs of the new bedrooms are inspired by crystals, as per the work of Lyell.
The new wing of the hotel and communal areas, which have been renovated and extended, including the Lyell function suite, reception, the bar and lounge area and the addition of a new orangery and snug, all make reference to the history of this classic country hotel. We have used traditional and historically correct materials to transform the hotel. From the fossils in the tiles of the orangery floor to the antique rock and mineral displays on the wall in the Darwin bar.
Whether you have visited us before at Bartley Lodge or are new guests you are sure to be impressed by the hotel’s new look. Come and see us soon and sample the award-winning food as our chefs strive to win their second rosette or enjoy a night away
in one of the new bedrooms.
