A 25-bedroom luxury hotel with restaurant and bar has opened in Harrogate following a multimillion-pound, 18-month refurbishment.
Overlooking Harrogate Stray in the centre of the North Yorkshire town, West Park is the latest addition to the Provenance Inns group, which also comprises the Carpenters Arms, Felixkirk; the Oak Tree, Helperby; the Crown and Cushion in Welburn; the Black Bull, Moulton; the Punch Bowl, Marton Cum Grafton; and the Durham Ox, Crayke.
The new-look West Park has been created from what was originally a Victoria coach house. It comprises eight individually designed suites, including one named Le Grand Depart to commemorate the Tour de France which passed through the town in July.
Quirky features include Olli the West Park duck in every bathroom and an alcoholic twist on afternoon tea as a signature cocktail, served in a chilled teapot.
All-day dining is offered from breakfast through to dinner in the restaurant, bar and outside courtyard, with private dining for up to 70 guests available in two rooms.
General manager Ewan Thompson and head chef Struan Macintyre head a team of more than 45 staff.
Michael Ibbotson, managing director of Provenance Inns said: "West Park has been transformed into a stunning bar and restaurant for local people, definitely bringing something new and exciting to Harrogate. As with all our Provenance Inns the emphasis is on sourcing only the best local produce and West Park will be no exception.
