HOTEL BAR AND RESTAURANT TO BE RE-FURBISHED
In January 2005, the main hotel building will be closed whilst the India-themed Jaipur Bar and Main Restaurant are re-furbished. The Jaipur bar will be totally refurbished, with new decoration and furniture (anyone who has sat in the current Jaipur Bar chairs for more than an hour will give a large cheer at this point).
The hotel restaurant will undergo similar refurbishment including some aesthetic changes (including removal of the mural and different furniture (including new leather chairs)). The Mirror Room and all other areas of the Main Hotel will, apparently, remain unaltered. It is hoped that The Unmutual Website might be able to obtain some of the existing furniture before removal -watch this space!
The Unmutual Website will be updated with new images as soon as this happens. The images below show how these rooms currently appear - but not for much longer!
