The West Park Hotel in Harrogate

WP_LogoThe West Park Hotel, Bar and Restaurant in Harrogate has been transformed from a run-down inn to an elegant hotel with popular cocktail bar and restaurant.  Averil was closely involved throughout the process of the extensive refurbishment which involved demolishing the rear portion of the previous structure whilst retaining the shell of the original building, including the frontage overlooking the important Stray area of parkland in Harrogate.

The 25 bedroom hotel includes 6 suites and a further 2 penthouse suites. Averil felt there was not only a lack of well-designed hotel rooms in the spa town but also a significant gap in the local market for a social space which would appeal to the well-heeled locals; in response she has created a cosmopolitan feel throughout both the dining and hotel areas with mixtures of metallics and splashes of rich colour. The scheme successfully appeals to the range of age groups that the client wanted to attract and is also female friendly, without being too feminine, a key concern in the client’s brief.
