New owners for Swynford hotel

The former Swynford Paddocks Hotel at Six Mile Bottom near Newmarket has been bought by boutique hotel group, The House Collection, has announced plans for its refurbishment and re-opening.

The hotel will be re-named Paddocks House and is the second hotel acquisition for the group after the Poets House in Ely. Both hotels are due to open in the spring and will create about 30 local jobs.

David Toulson-Burke, managing director of The House Collection, said: “Injecting fresh investment into Paddocks House presents a wonderful opportunity to revive the property to its former glory. It will be a fabulous place for local people to enjoy and an asset that will strengthen the wider appeal of the mid-Anglia region, while also supporting local employment.”

Part of the planned redevelopment of the hotel will see the creation of a new 60-cover restaurant, two private dining rooms as well as an extension to the existing conservatory to cater for about 150 guests at weddings and special events.
