Oulton Hall is set to reopen

The historic hotel near Rothwell will be offering rooms and golf weekend from May.

The hotel has begun an 80 day countdown to ‘Freeday’ May 17.

Boris Johnson’s announcement this week detailing the re-opening of golf courses from March 29, Spa and Leisure facilities from April 12 and a chance to leave home and stay in a hotel overnight from May 17 means that the hotel can finally put their plans in place.

To get ready for guests’ arrivals across the QHotels Group, housekeeping staff will be deployed to complete 88,170 minutes of cleaning bedrooms with 11,756 pillows to be fluffed.

The maintenance team will furiously busy themselves prepping leisure facilities with 58,422 yards of golf course lawn to mow and 298 meters of pool to clean until sparkling.

General manager Claire Stevens said: "The demand is going to be huge. We are expecting the biggest number of guests, probably ever, as people breathe the sigh of relief after lockdown and plan a “going out”, pampering sessions, leisure breaks, overnights and weekends away like never before. So we need to be ready.”
