Tewkesbury Park Hotel, the four-star boutique hotel which suffered from fire damage last week, is still open for business as usual. That’s according to its general manager, Patrick Jones, who was speaking to the Gloucestershire Echo.
Last week a fire broke out in the roof area of a non-used part of the property and all 43 guests and 20 members of staff had to be quickly evacuated as four fire engines from the surrounding area controlled the blaze.
General manager Patrick Jones reassured locals and guests that the hotel is running as usual. According to Jones, its restaurants, gold club and leisure complex all remain unaffected by the blaze, as well as the bedrooms.
The hotel is in the middle of a £1 million refurbishment project, which is adding nine new luxury suites to the property, all of which were unaffected in the fire and are still on schedule to be completed by early next month.
The work is part of a £3 million overall refurbishment programme which has transformed all 94 bedrooms, the public lounges and the indoor pool area over the last 12 months.
The authorities do not believe the fire to be suspicious.
