Champneys Group heads North with acquisition of Mottram Hall

Spa group Champneys has added to its portfolio with the purchase of Mottram Hall in Cheshire, with plans for a £10 million refurbishment programme, including a £5 million redesign of the hotel’s current spa facilities.

The redesign of the 18th-century, Grade II-listed Hotel and Spa will include a 20m swimming pool, new wet and thermal experiences, as well as 18 new treatment rooms. There are also plans for new conference facilities, an extension to the clubhouse on the Championship golf course, and an increase in the number of bedrooms from 120 to 150.

“Mottram Hall gives our brand a broader geographical spread with a presence in the North-West. It’s a fantastic property and we’re delighted to be adding it to our collection of properties within the Champneys Group. We’re now planning a considerable investment project which will take place over the next year,” said Champneys owner Stephen Purdew

Champneys current properties are mainly based in the south of England, with four spa resort locations at Forest Mere, Henlow, Springs and Tring and six city spas in the south east; along with its hotel and spa at Eastwell Manor in Kent and spa onboard the Marella Explorer cruise ship.
