£2.5m lockdown makeover for Lytham’s top hotel
The owners of Lytham’s most prestigious, luxury hotel have taken the opportunity to remodel the Clifton Arms Hotel during the 2020/21 lockdowns and the exciting refurbishment of the Clifton Arms Hotel was completed ahead of the hospitality industry re-opening, on 17 May.
Carol Webb, Director, said: “It’s been a tough 14 months for everyone; the hospitality sector has had to prepare to reopen on several occasions but then forced to close again at short notice. Last year, the board of directors took the decision to remain closed and focus on the planned refurbishment that we were fortunately able to bring forward. We hope that this will allow the Clifton Arms Hotel to return stronger than ever.”
The building, which dates from 1840, has been privately owned by the Webb family since 1993. The 48 bedrooms have had individual stylish makeovers in recent years, along with the banqueting suites but the rest of the ground floor was in need of modernisation. The new features include a refurbished reception, bar and more dining areas – with new and exciting menus to compliment the new state-of-the-art kitchen – as well as an outdoor seating area on the terrace overlooking Lytham Green. All day dining will now be available for non-residents as well as hotel guests.
General Manager, Victoria Dolman, added: “The design team have worked with the hotel’s existing features to further enhance this iconic hotel. The support from our loyal customers throughout this period has been heart-warming and has given us the strength and determination needed at times to keep going. I also know that our new terrace has provided much discussion for people having their daily walks on Lytham green. We’re confident the restaurant and bar will be a massive draw to visitors to the area and local residents, while the comfortable, cosy spaces we’ve created will allow guests to relax in beautiful and calming surroundings, maybe enjoying our famous Clifton Arms afternoon tea!”
There’s a real buzz in the air, the team can’t wait and we’re looking forward to seeing our new spaces being enjoyed by guests old and new alike.
