While this hotel had a soft open in December, its grand debut will be this March. There are 159 rooms and suites, a restaurant, two bars and a holistic wellbeing center.


Shangri-La London

Upon opening, the Shangri-La Hotel in London will be housed on the upper floors of The Shard, offering sweeping views of London. The luxury hotel will have 195 rooms, including 25 suites. We hear some of the suites will have glass-enclosed wintergreen balconies. The spa on the 52nd floor will have Chinese and Himalayan treatments.

Salcombe Harbour Hotel & Spa, Devon

The Salcombe Harbour Hotel & Spa will reopen with a refreshed look in summer, with 50 refurbished bedrooms, a new Harbour Spa and Harbour Restaurant on the estuary. 

Heckfield Place, Hampshire

Heckfield Place, due to open in the spring, is set in an 18th century manor house on 400 acres of gardens and woods. The manor will have 60 bedrooms built around the stables, the walled garden and in the manor itself. It is a working farm and so will showcase its produce on the restaurant's menu.


The Lord Crewe Arms

Calcot Hotels will add The Lord Crewe Arms to its portfolio in 2013. The hotel, set in the medieval village of Blanchland, will reopen as a 21-bedroom country hotel in May.
