Hotel Expansion Gets Approval

  January 10th 2013

Hotel Expansion Gets Approval. In September last year, the authorities approved the new resort hotel expansion, following our news post. The planned expansion features sixty-nine guest bedrooms, a new restaurant as well as so much more.

The new hotel building will feature sixty-nine new bedrooms across three floors. Featuring a variety of standard and accessible rooms, the new hotel wing is a welcome addition. The current hotel is often busy, with the Zafari restaurant often fully booked. The new wing looks set to aid that.

Alongside the new rooms is a ground-level restaurant and bar, but that is not all. The current hotel building is also undergoing planned changes along with the construction of the new hotel wing. Chessington will expand the leisure offering in the current Safari Hotel. By expanding the bar and pool area. With an extension to the rear of the pool.

We expect that this pool area will be more child-friendly. Thought to be taking the guise of a splash pool with juvenile water slides for the younger guests. This extension will replace part of the current exterior decking area.

With the approval of the planning, we expect that construction will start in the coming months. It is not yet known when the new expansion will open, but we shall be following progress. Be sure to keep up to date with all the latest news here on Chessington Buzz.
