The new new £35,000,000 hotel at Sandy Park in Exeter is progressing well and the project is set to open in late 2021. Despite the Coronavirus outbreak which affected many people and industries across the work, the hotel is moving on at a rapid pace

The lower levels of the facade is using Ceramapanel A1 in a face fixed/riveted system in 2 colours from the Natural Textures Touch range, 1031 Charcoal and 1021 Light Slate. The Touch range offers a ribboned effect giving the panels a subtle grooved finish and offers a great non-combustible alternative to timber facades

In addition to housing 250 bedrooms, the hotel situated off Old Rydon Lane will provide leisure facilities on the entry floor, which includes a lounge, a snack and coffee bar, as well as a purpose-built business centre. Also included in the designs, which have now been finalised, is a rooftop cocktail bar, together with a Fish & Steak restaurant that boasts picturesque views down the River Exe Estuary and towards Torbay.

Coming under the worldwide Courtyard by Marriott brand, the four-star facility will also boast an impressive glazed bridge link to Sandy Park, whilst the basement of the hotel will provide spa and fitness facilities, including a sauna, steam room and gymnasium.

The rooftop restaurant is described as ‘one of its kind for the area’ and will provide a ‘unique dining experience for guests and visitors’, including two private dining rooms, serving locally caught fish from Brixham, prime Devon red beef, alongside other exquisite produce from across the region.

As well as helping to drive additional business towards Sandy Park Conference & Banqueting Centre during the week, the hotel will also be a welcome addition to supporters heading to the city for match-days involving the Exeter Chiefs.
