The Greenway Hotel and Spa has completed a significant refurbishment across its communal areas, including the spa brasserie, its main reception and stairwell, and its multi-purpose Austen Room.

A new bar and an expanded food menu are among the new additions to a 16th century manor house hotel following an eight-week refurbishment.

The Orchard Brasserie and the Austen Room.

It complements a separate transformation of the venue’s 21 bedrooms, which was completed in March 2023 – bringing total investment in the hotel to around £1.4 million over the past two years.

The Orchard Brasserie, located next to the hotel’s luxurious Elan Spa, has seen the installation of a permanent bar, serving a range of hot and cold beverages.

The menu has also been expanded to now offer hot breakfast and evening meals to complement its existing lunch and afternoon tea offerings, and has extended its opening hours from 8am to 7pm.

Appetising additions include mini fattoush salad, tempura vegetables and tentsuyu, or char siu pork bao bun with pickled vegetables, through to Asian slaw with pickled cucumber and flaked miso glazed salmon, glazed asparagus with poached egg and chorizo jam, or stout braised barbeque short rib with mash potato and toasted yeast and charred corn.

The neighbouring manor house has also completed its new look.

The venue’s Austen Room – which can cater for up to 12 people for meetings, private dining and other events – is now equipped with a James Bond-esque motorised wall-mounted ArtTV frame which can alternate between a picture and a TV for meetings, private dining or functions.

The project has been worked on by Director of Eden Hotel Collection Marian Cartter, who heads up the group’s design team, along with the company’s interior designer Lucy Yarwood.

Lucy said: “This latest refurbishment has not only injected a new lease of life into some of the communal areas such as the main reception and the stairwell, but functional adaptions to the likes of the Austen Room and the Orchard Brasserie means the hotel now has spaces that can flex to modern day needs.”

Craig Routledge, General Manager at The Greenway Hotel and Spa, has been enjoying hotel guests’ reactions as they walk through the door for the first time.

He added: “As an industry value is more important than ever, so it’s important that we are able to create a sense of grandeur and that wow factor when people arrive so they have a place where they can create special memories – whether it’s an anniversary, birthday or a short break.

“It is now operational 11 hours a day for the general public to grab a bite to eat or drink – and can also cater for events for up to 60 people standing and 25 people seated – and we will be announcing a range of different events that we will be hosting in this space.

The boutique hotel is set in eight acres of stunning countryside grounds off Shurdington Road and holds a 4 AA Red Star rating.

As well as 21 newly-refurbished bedrooms and an Elan Spa, it also includes fine dining at the 3AA Rosette Garden Room restaurant.
