The Lodge at Solent, a new concept from Thwaites, has opened in Hampshire offering a fun, friendly and creative experience. A £5 million addition to the four star Solent Hotel and Spa, the Lodge at Solent combines spacious and comfortable accommodation with sumptuous, home cooked food.
With a contemporary design and original features that have been inspired by the local area, the Lodge gives customers an alternative overnight option that is small on price but high on quality. Having been established in the area for over twenty years, Thwaites have an excellent understanding of what is required for a successful property.
In addition to the construction of the 54-bedroom Lodge, the adjoining restaurant Parson’s Collar Pub & Kitchen has also enjoyed a makeover with a new bar and kitchen featuring a wood-fired oven and ice cream parlour. Rachel Wootton, Interior Designer on the project, spoke to Premier Hospitality about the importance of creating an interesting yet simple design:
“We completed a similar concept at our Bristol hotel and from that we knew these lodges can work really well for us. The Lodge sits within the grounds of our four star hotel but we needed to make sure it offered something different to what we already have. It’s a different operation and a simpler offering than the hotel"
