UK: The Georgian hotel in Haslemere has submitted plans for renovation

The Georgian hotel in Haslemere has submitted plans for renovation after falling into administration.

The new owners of the 43-bedroom, Grade II-listed hotel applied to Waverley Borough Council for planning permission to refurbish the 31-bedroom annexe and spa into flats to allow the hoteliers to focus their energies on a 12-bedroom boutique property.

The hotel went into administration last year after it was acquired by Sarah Burke and Mark McVeigh in May 2015. Under Burke and McVeigh, the property was operated under Lionhouse Hotels. The hotel was previously owned by Hollybourne Hotels until it went into administration in 2014.

The planning application states: "Community feedback and support for the hotel has indicated that the Georgian needs to lift its offering to reflect the wants and needs of the local clientele, particularly in regard to a better F&B offering in a town that desperately requires more choice."

The flats and mews cottages in the property's car park are hoped to raise £2m to fund the hotel redesign.
