The much-loved George Hotel in Buckden has reopened its doors after undergoing a dramatic transformation during lockdown.
The historic Cambridgeshire venue, which boasts ‘contemporary luxury inspired by a time gone by’ has been completely renovated by its new owners.
And in a boost for local jobs, the entire team has been kept on.
Operations manager Amanda Wright said: “Having worked at The George for the past 14 years, I'm delighted to see new life breathed into this much-loved business.
“The whole team has been working hard on some exciting new offerings for our guests.
“We want everyone to enjoy a little bit of luxury after such a tough time."
Featuring a restaurant, orangery, bar, and lounge, the Cambridgeshire venue has been a coaching house since Georgian times. The building is Grade II Listed and a former 18th Century coaching Inn. Historical records show that highwayman Dick Turpin stayed at the venue.
