Storah Architecture were appointed in 2006 to carry out a complete refurbishment of the upper floors of the hotel. This entailed stripping the building to reinforce the existing floors, stabilisation of the structure and the remodeling of the interior, removing a flat and expanding the number of bedrooms from eight to twelve.The ceilings of two principal rooms have been raised to open up claustrophobic spaces. The interior design concept is to provide a fusion of contemporary design and the enduring qualities of the Victorian structure.
In 2009 we carried out works toexpand the popular restaurant into the former offices towards Albert Street, this work included the provision of wheelchair access.
For summer 2010 we remodelled the exterior, providing an external terrace and new signage for the building on its sensitive site opposite the marina in the centre of Hebden Bridge Conservation Area.
