The 16th Century country manor hotel, Boringdon Hall in Plympton, has been awarded five star status by the AA. The historic, privately-owned hotel, already the highest rated establishment in Plymouth, is now the city’s very first five star hotel.
Offering the highest levels of service, and with guest experience paramount, staff at the hotel have worked extremely hard to achieve the prestigious new status. Laura Cameron, Operations Director, says:
“I am thrilled for all of our team who have worked so hard towards this fantastic accolade. Many people have spoken of the need for a five star hotel in Plymouth and Boringdon Hall is now here for those people to enjoy true luxury. I would like to thank everyone involved at Boringdon for their professionalism and commitment. We are fortunate to have some very passionate hospitality enthusiasts on our team and it has been a pleasure to work with them towards this goal. Boringdon is over 400 years old with a fascinating and rich history, but we are most excited about being part of the future in Britain’s Ocean City.”
The hotel, which saw the launch of the new Gaia Spa in September, has also introduced concierge and valet services to further extend the guest experience.
Recently Boringdon Hall has undergone complete refurbishment within all 40 bedrooms and suites. The Great Hall and The Gallery Restaurant have also been refurbished, bringing sumptuous luxury to the historic surroundings. With the hotel’s appointment of Head Chef Scott Paton earlier this year, Boringdon Hall offers the highest standards of fine dining. Scott Paton, Head Chef, says:
“It’s been an honour to be involved and part of this journey. Myself and my team are hugely proud of the achievement and for helping to contribute to this success.”
