A MARLOW hotel is undergoing a refurbishment following a £500,000 investment by its owners, with the benefits set to include an upgraded conference centre.

The four-star Crowne Plaza Hotel has been given a large-scale renovation as part of a wider upgrade of its facilities.

The project, which involves 48 individual developments throughout the hotel, also includes upgraded facilities in its conference centre, health and fitness club, spa areas, as well as a new children’s activity centre.

Among the upgrades are new conference facilities, air conditioning system, dance floor and fountains.

Richard Storey, General Manager at Crowne Plaza Marlow, said: “We’re investing in the region of half a million pounds to make over many areas of the hotel as part of our extensive renovation project.

“The investment includes a new relaxation zone and make-over for our Quad Beauty treatment rooms, as well as a new dry sauna and showers, upgrading changing rooms and soft furnishings throughout Quad Club.

“In addition, our new children’s activity area in our extensive grounds has been a huge benefit to our leisure guests."

Originally opened in 2002, the hotel employs more than 100 full and part-time staff.
