The Escarpment Group, owners of Lilianfels, Echoes and Darleys, have taken on the mammoth task of reviving heritage-listed former spa hotel, The Hydro Majestic.
A spokesperson for the project said, “[The will be an] extensive interior redevelopment and the exterior gardens are being developed as we speak. There’s a lot of activity at the location and we will be thrilled to let you know more when it happens.”
The ‘Hydro’ is scheduled to open in two stages, with Stage One of the public areas to be completed in June 2014. Stage Two, including the new accommodation wings and spa, will follow in 2017.
Stage One includes the revitalisation of the majority of the existing buildings including the Casino Building, The Wintergarden, The Flying Fox Room and The Cat’s Alley, The Delmonte Building and Conference Rooms and The Majestic Ballroom.
Upon reopening in June, The Belgravia Wing will house the Hotel Management Institute, a hospitality training school that will offer student placements at The Hydro Majestic, Lilianfels Resort and Spa, Echoes Boutique Hotel and Restaurant and Parklands Country Garden and Lodges.
