What a year it has been...
2016 has been a huge success for us at the Feversham Arms and as our last blog of the year we thought it was only right to use it to reminisce on the last 12 months and thank all those who have been involved in our journey.
The year started off with quite a bang, with the re-launch of our hotel restaurant taking place in February. It was an extremely exciting time for us and what made it so special was having so many of our dedicated social media friends involved in naming the restaurant. The Weathervane was an option suggested by Bill Taylor, of nearby Knaresborough, who visited the hotel only once and remembered the distinctive weathervane situated on the roof of the restaurant. The 2AA Rosette rated restaurant has gone from strength to strength since the re-launch and now has its own identity.
In June, inspired by our flowering lavender, we opened our 100 Days in Provence pop-up restaurant, located in our Mediterranean-esque central courtyard, which boasts our iconic outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi. The restaurant featured al fresco style dining from June to September and proved extremely popular with hotel guests and local residents and we look forward to re-opening it next year.
It isn’t just our food that has excelled this year, as our Verbena Spa was a finalist in the Good Spa Guide Awards for ‘Best Spa for Outdoor Space’. The Verbena Spa proves popular each year and our monthly offers ensure everyone gets a taste of luxury at least once throughout the year.
The Award nominations don’t stop there, as we were also finalists in the White Rose Awards for ‘Small Hotel of the Year’ which was a huge honour for us.
As you can see 2016 has been hugely impressive for us but all of this wouldn’t have been possible without our dedicated staff in both the hotel and spa. But, and most importantly, we wouldn’t be here without our fantastic guests. We pride ourselves on our friendly welcome and it’s a real pleasure to see our guests leaving the hotel with smiles on their faces.
We want to wish guests, both old and new, a very Merry Christmas and look forward to welcoming them again in the New Year.
