Lodge at Solent Hotel, Fareham, Hampshire

Architects Plus completed a new 54 bedroom hotel and comprehensively refurbished the Parsons Collar Pub for Daniel Thwaites Plc.  This provides express style hotel bedroom accommodation linked to a new contemporary pub experience offering breakfast, day time and evening meals.  Works included a new kitchen, dining area, bar, and ice cream parlour.

Planning was obtained in December 2015.  A fast paced period of detailed production information followed with works commencing in the Summer of 2016.  The hotel opened in 2017 and remains a very successful and popular business.

The hotel is well placed between Portsmouth and Southampton for leisure guests on their way to and from the continent.  The operating model is similar to another hotel development, ‘Aztec Lodge’ Bristol, that Architects Plus designed and delivered some several years before.
