Taplow House is to be rebranded as Taplow House Hotel & Spa this spring following the creation of a £2m luxury spa.
Building work throughout the Georgian property’s ground floor and lower ground floor is now well underway at the 30-bedroom, four-star property, with the spa expected to open early May. Development work will also encompass the hotel’s ground floor public spaces, with new soft furnishings introduced throughout. An exciting discovery – a mosaic floor in the reception area and hallway – is being restored.
Partnering with luxury British skincare brand, Temple Spa, the hotel will welcome guests into an enchanting space that flows through the hotel’s ground floor and lower ground floor. The intimate spa will boast six treatment rooms, a nail bar and pedicure room, relaxation lounge, sauna, glazed conservatory, and an outdoor whirlpool.
Building work and interior design is being masterminded by leading international design specialists, Trevillion Interiors, which has designed a spa lounge on the ground floor, located immediately above the treatment rooms, while also refreshing the hotel’s existing public spaces – the reception, dining room, drawing room and bar, and terrace area.
The repositioning of Taplow House Hotel & Spa also coincides with the appointment of Noel Capp as executive chef, who will be overseeing a more informal yet high-quality dining offering at the hotel, including an all-day dining concept for spa guests.
Capp, who comes with a wealth of experience having previously held positions at Pinewood Studios, McLaren Technology Centre, and Coworth Park, replaces Kostas Kritikos, who has recently relocated to the Midlands.
“Taplow House Hotel & Spa is a precious property, and we are delighted to be unveiling the next chapter in its life with the creation of a luxurious yet relaxing space for our guests,” says general manager, Jason McDaid. “The team is excited to be on this new journey to create one of the best premium boutique spa hotels in south-east England, where guests can enjoy flawless standards, impeccable service and beyond-ordinary experiences.”
“We are thrilled to be welcoming Noel to the team, who joins us at such a special time in the property’s history. Noel is an incredibly talented chef with an impressive CV, and we know that his style of cuisine will take the hotel into a fabulous new era of dining at the hotel and spa.”
