The restoration of Grantley Hall will restore the main house back to its original 17th Century glory alongside two new buildings which will offer modern and stylish accommodation and public areas. The hotel will offer 47 opulent rooms and suites, four exquisite restaurants – ranging from signature fine dining to elaborate Pan-Asian cuisine and three sophisticated bars, including a late-night champagne and cocktail bar with live entertainment.
