Fairmont to add another historic English manor

Multi-million pound upgrade and rebadging for Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa

UK hotel owner-operator, Arora Group has assigned Fairmont Hotels & Resorts as the future operator of Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa on the border of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire in the English countryside.

The hotel will join iconic Fairmont properties across the UK and Ireland, such as The Savoy, A Fairmont Managed Hotel, in London; Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland; Carton House, A Fairmont Managed Hotel, in Ireland; and the Arora-owned Fairmont Windsor Park near historic Windsor.

Prior to taking on the Fairmont flag, Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa will undergo a multi-million-pound redevelopment over the next few years, bringing the hotel to new levels of luxury, unparalleled in the area. Dating back to 1601, the estate spans 1,100 acres of pristine land on the border of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. Beyond the magnificent and historic facade of the Mansion House, today stands a 5-star country house hotel boasting exceptional facilities and offering luxurious yet relaxed service.
