    Operated by the Harbour Hotels Collectionsince March 2010, reinventing the Great British seaside with four-star waterside retreatsacross the south coast, there will be a multi million pound investment into this landmark Hotel. Currently boasting five Hotels across the Devon, Dorset and Cornwall coastline, the Harbour Hotels Collection continues to go from strength to strength. Following on from the hugely successful refurbishment of the Christchurch Harbour Hotel (previously The Avonmouth Hotel) and with St Ives Harbour Hotel (previously The Porthminster Hotel) developments drawing to an end, Salcombe Harbour Hotel is next in line.

    Having submitted plans for the Salcombe Harbour Hotel, that include the installation of a luxury ‘Harbour Spa’ and additional facilities, with anew function room for weddings, conferences and special events, a fully refurbished restaurant and50 refurbished bedrooms, the application followed a series of public events – giving local residents and visitors to the Hotel the opportunity to view and comment on the proposals.

    With everyone extremely excited about the refurbishment plans, the project has now been approved. Commencing October 2011, the project will complete early Summer 2012, with an end product that can be enjoyed bynew and regular visitors to the Hotel for generations to come.

    Mark Godfrey, Managing Director of the Harbour Hotels Collection, said:
    “We are delighted that planning permission has come through and we can get to work. We hope that the newly refurbished Hotel and additional facilities will not only boost the local economy by attracting new visitors to the area, but also act as a local community hub.”
    “This is an exciting time for us, as we continue to build our collection of waterside Hotels, bringing our entire current portfolio up to four-star standard. With big plans for on-going growth, we are always on the lookout for unique and stunning waterside hotels to add to our Harbour Hotels Collection. ”

    Jason Parry, General Manager of the Salcombe Harbour Hotel adds:
    “This is an incredibly exciting project that will provide great benefits to the community and visitors to the area, through the delivery of a Hotel and Spa as spectacular as its location. Through careful planning and development, we will delivera Hotel that not only attracts new visitors but also provides state-of-the-art Spa facilities, a stunning venue for weddings and special events, fantastic dining experiences and a relaxing retreat for the local community.”
