The independent Bush Hotel, which has been welcoming guests since 1618, today officially opened the Redgrave Rooms.
Formerly a conference centre, the Redgrave Rooms have been converted into modern and stylish rooms of various sizes, capable of hosting everything from a large wedding to an intimate gathering.
Since the Bush Hotel became independent from the international Mercure chain last year, the new owners, led by a local family, have invested heavily in renovating and modernizing the hotel, while ensuring its historic features are preserved. The Bush Hotel has 95 individually designed rooms with new air conditioning and original period features including an ivy-clad facade, wood paneling and fireplaces. In addition, it offers guests use of a secluded paved courtyard, a large terrace and an extensive garden. garden with beautiful plants.
Francesco Bartolomei, the locally based General Manager recently recruited to lead the growth and transformation of the new independent hotel said: “It has taken a huge team effort and a lot of investment to get to today, but we are very proud to open the Redgrave Rooms.
“This is the next step in the journey for the Bush Hotel following a rebrand and upgrade of the bedrooms, reception and lobby in the main hotel building, with the aim of focusing on improving the guest experience and connecting with the local community.
“We can now welcome more guests and host any event, from a wedding, exhibition or conference for 130 people to teaching a small group in a studio or an intimidating meeting for just two colleagues. We have the space, flexibility and team to support great events and bring more people to Farnham and Surrey.”
The newly renovated meeting and events space features state-of-the-art conference facilities and AV. The hotel’s chef and kitchen team cater for every event, from wedding breakfasts to working lunches.
