This landmark project involved the sympathetic renovation, alteration and extension of the former Mansion House Hotel, situated behind the quay in
Old Town Poole. Greendale worked alongside a resident archaeologist and with local planning and conservation officers to retain and remodel the listed buildings and its adjoining properties.
During construction, no part of the building was left untouched and it was also extended to incorporate a new bedroom wing. Previous additions to the property were re-clad in traditional brick envelope to ensure the entire structure remained in keeping with its architectural heritage.
The impressive new 38 bedroom boutique hotel was completed a week ahead of schedule thanks to the work of 150 Greendale employees. Senior staff from Hotel du Vin commented that it was the smoothest opening of any of the hotels they had created.
