Brookmans Park Hotel changes hands
The Brookmans Park Hotel has changed hands and plans are being drawn up for a face-lift although the new business manager tells this site the facade will remain the same.
In a message to the 'Have Your Say' section of this site, Pat McLean says that the new owners want the hotel to be at the centre of village life and promises to keep local residents informed about any changes through this website.
"I am the new business manager of The Brookmans Park Hotel and have read with interest your (or rather our ) local village website. No doubt we at the hotel will have lots to contribute over the next few months and anything we can do to accommodate any requests from local charities, groups, societies and, providing we can meet with that request then consider it done. Anything we can do to make peoples lives easier or enjoyable then point them in our direction here at the hotel.
"The nucleus of staff will remain and we do have plans to alter the fabric of the building and we think to the benefit of one and all. The buildings' owners, Whitbread, are in consultation at the moment with the new lessees and as soon as plans are finalised, one and all will have access to them via this site and the usual channels.
"Rest assured the facade of this wonderful hotel will remain unchanged, albeit decorative alterations viz new windows etc."
In another message Pat MacLean writes about a temporary facelift for the hotel and further plans for its development.
"The hotel is undergoing decorative change at the moment, albeit temporarily, as at the present time it all looks a bit 'tired'. It is also planned to add extra rooms to the hotel and a feasibility study of the site is under way.
"We all look forward to being the centre of village life once again and every one is welcome to call in at any time to quiz me. If anyone has a request or a need for the hotel they are more than welcome to ask and something will be done."
