Soughton Hall Hotel in Flintshire has undergone a £100,000 refurbishment as part of an investment programme by the new owners.

The historic mansion house and luxury wedding venue was originally built in 1714 as a bishop’s palace and the makeover by Elle R Leisure has breathed ‘new life’ into the building.

The extensive improvements included updating the main guest areas with a revamp of the library, entrance hall, reception and residents bar. Considerable changes to the hotel’s public spaces as well as upgrading the Bridal Suite have also occurred. The new owners have also invested in the ancient hall’s Wi-Fi system.

Elle R Leisure owner James Ramsbottom told The Daily Post: “Every little thing we are doing at Soughton Hall, from revamping the website to moving dining from the Stables restaurant back into the newly-refurbished main hall, is about getting more people in to appreciate this stunning building.

“We want to open the doors and breathe new life into the building to secure its future as an architectural treasure and as a successful business so more people can enjoy coming here for many generations to come,” he added.

Palazzo Scanderbeg, Rome: Where Renaissance meets design

Today Palazzo Scanderbeg pays tribute to its illustrious past with a contemporary and sober, yet sophisticated style, embellished by wooden floors recovered from antique Venetian mooring poles and high ceilings with exposed beams.

The furniture signed Cappellini and Poltrona Frau; the precious suspension lamp by Terzani that lights up the helical-shaped stairs; the Sartori carpets, that mix old Persian rugs in a delicate patchwork; as well as all the other furnishings are examples of that elegant Italian design that exalts craftsmanship also in the most modern style.

The Palazzo consists of 4 floors and is built around a courtyard where there is a fountain decorated with a decorative gargoyle, from which water flows, a symbol of Italian Mannerism. The building features beautiful terraces, but one of the most sought-after corners is the Library Room – from here one has access to the exclusive Suites, the largest of which measures 166-square-metres.
