Hand Picked to invest £10m in Rookery Hall hotel in Nantwich, Cheshire

Hand Picked Hotels is investing £10m to overhaul Rookery Hall hotel, its four-star country house property in Nantwich, Cheshire.

The development, which follows a £40m investment across the Hand Picked estate in the past two years, will extend the hotel's existing bedroom, wedding and conference facilities, and include the addition of a health club and spa.

The conference facility will open in March 2007, while the health club and spa is set for completion in summer 2007. The investment will create about 30 new jobs

Julia Hands, chief executive of Hand Picked Hotels, said: "We have set significant targets for revenue growth and customer satisfaction at Rookery Hall and aim to become one of the most prestigious hotel and spas in the area in 2007."

In the 28 September edition of Caterer, it was reported that Hand Picked had doubled its number of AA-three-rosette-rated properties from three to six. The chain has in fact doubled its number of AA-red-star-rated properties.
