Menzies Hotels, one of the UK’s independent hotel groups, has unveiled the latest project in its extensive $11-million redevelopment program – the four-star Menzies London Chigwell Prince Regent Hotel. The converted Georgian chapel is undergoing a $1.5-million renovation process.
To date, 28 of the bedrooms have been restyled to feature bespoke furniture, Sealey beds, refitted bathrooms and environmentally friendly LED lighting, with the latter a move in support of Menzies Hotels’ Green Tourism initiative.
The restaurant and bar also underwent a complete transformation, creating an open-plan area, with natural light. This space has been extended to include further seating in the new zinc bar area, boasting views of the gardens surrounding the property.
To officially launch the new restaurant, the hotel has created a brand new menu featuring local produce, as well as the appointment of new head chef, Adrian Codreanu.
According to Niall Geoghegan, chairman of Menzies Hotels, the “significant investment we’ve made in the hotel cements our on-going commitment to being one of the leading hotels for leisure and business travellers in the greater London area. The introduction of our new bedrooms and public areas will ensure guests enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay.”
Located five minutes from the M11, 10 minutes from J26 of the M25 and just one mile from Woodford underground station with direct access to central London, the Menzies London Chigwell hotel is a listed Georgian house, with the unique conversion of an old chapel with contemporary décor. It has six function suites, the largest of which can accommodate up to 350 delegates. Facilities include complimentary Wi-Fi in all bedrooms and conference rooms, a free car park, lounge bar, Brasserie restaurant, a garden and terrace.
