The West Park Hotel – Harrogate
Harrogate, North Yorkshire
Bowman Riley Architects transformed The West Park Hotel, a former 19th coaching inn located on the Stray, in Harrogate’s Conservation Area into a luxury boutique hotel.
In 2012, Provenance Inns’ purchased the hotel following several years under-performance, due to the unsuitability of the accommodation and facilities.
Bowman Riley was commissioned to evaluate the existing building and design the transformation into a boutique five star hotel.
Our design reflects the client’s philosophy to bring together the principles of the great British inn with good food, friendly service and high quality accommodation. 25 of the bedrooms rooms have been individually designed, (eight executive suites), bar, restaurant and function suite.
Within the constraints of an incredibly tight urban site, we secured planning consent to demolish the rear half of the hotel and design a new four storey structure (over an extensive new basement), comprising new hotel entrance, lounge, kitchen and en-suite bedrooms.
Bowman Riley worked closely with Provenance Inns and the neighbouring property owners to acquire a new private access road to serve the site and provide additional offsite parking for neighbours. In addition to architecture, Bowman Riley provided party wall surveying and CDM coordination.
