The restoration of The Old Hall Hotel is a labour of love for the highly respected Kalia family.
Mr and Mrs Kalia have fond memories of spending time at the historic building in its heyday, and they were thrilled when they were able to purchase what had sadly become a rundown site 11 years ago.
Mrs Kalia always dreamed of owning a hotel and Mr Kalia, with support from his family, was able to make that dream come true for his wife.
After five years of meticulous planning, the renaissance of the 159-year-old Victorian townhouse began in earnest in 2014, with phase one of the development taking shape.
Mr Kalia, who originates from India, has extensive experience in property development but this is his first hotel project, and he has made it a truly family affair. The couple have even named their own brand of coffee after their beloved grandson, Kanko.
Blending the old with the new is at the heart of the development, and every step in the renovation of the listed Grade II property has been approached sympathetically. Ten bedrooms have been beautifully designed, the grounds carefully landscaped, bars and restaurant areas exquisitely revived, and an executive meeting room added to the stylish facilities.
The Old Hall has come to epitomise everything guests in a modern, luxury hotel should expect. From friendly, old-fashioned customer service, to a first-class dining experience, flawless guest rooms, and events planned with the finest attention to detail, every guest experience will be outstanding and memorable.
Here’s what the family says…
“We believe in making a positive first impression, so your arrival at The Old Hall Hotel will be greeted with a warm, personal welcome, and a commitment to traditional hospitality will continue throughout your stay.
“That’s why we pride ourselves on employing polite and respectful staff, who respond quickly to your needs, and share our passion for making you as comfortable as possible.
“It has already been a momentous journey, but we are delighted to say it is just the beginning of The Old Hall Hotel being returned to its former glory, with phase two about to begin.
“In the meantime, it’s important to us that you are made to feel special, so please remember that nothing is too much trouble – you only have to ask.”
