WORK on a multi-million refurbishment of Stratford’s historic Falcon Hotel is set to get underway in April.
The Chapel Street hotel, with a frontage dating back to the late 15th century, was bought for an undisclosed sum by St James’s Hotels back in 2014.
Features will include a new restaurant, bar and lounge, a new state of the art kitchen, as well as a new gym, meeting room and air conditioning in rooms.
Falcon general manager Jason Mayglothling said: “Over the years our hotel has suffered from a lack of investment so you can imagine the delight when we were told about the forthcoming renovations.
“By carefully phasing each stage of the project, this significant upgrade will be managed to have minimal impact on guest experience, whilst we roll out our new high-specification accommodation.”
“The new hotel will remain a big part of the community and history of Stratford which has become a magnet for Shakespeare lovers the world over.”
“I am certain that these improvements will better serve visitors to Stratford and establish the hotel as a central venue for the community.”
The landmark hotel boasts 83 bedrooms, two restaurants, two bars, meeting rooms, and parking for 120 cars.
The refurbishment is set to be completed next year, and the hotel will remain open throughout the work.
