Historic Midlands Hotel Renovated

Historic Midlands Hotel RenovatedA new Hotel Hilton, set in the heart of the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, is currently undergoing extensive renovations, which are expected to be completed by January 2023.

Originally built in 1936, the hotel combines old-world charm with family values and efficient service and is in high demand locally and internationally.

“With its striking original features, the building speaks for itself. Many guests have spoken of their experiences at this hotel in years past, describing plush rooms and grand events. As a team, the brand embarked on this renovation to elevate the property to even higher standards,” said Anthony Moskovitch, GM of ANEW Hotel Hilton.

“People have a strong connection to this property because it has been the place where they have either got married or spent their honeymoon. Furthermore, it is surrounded by several elite schools, so families often start their journey at the hotel. We have been seeing multi-generational families returning again and again.”

Jayne Armour, the interior decorator for the project, said: “The refurbishment is extensive and long planned with a view to ensure we modernise a truly iconic part of the history of Hilton. Maintaining the Tudor-style but adding a modern twist was a priority. We have gone with a classic modern look which will appeal to all ages.”

The 97-room hotel will feature all the modern amenities expected by vacationing families and businessmen. “Each room type is unique and has been designed with careful thought and attention to detail. Our dining and living spaces have also received a full refurbishment. Our main restaurant, The Copper Kitchen, will not disappoint as it embodies sophistication and elegance. There is space for large groups and intimate private dining,” Armour pointed out.

Moskovitch said the team was also in the process of introducing a number of new features to enhance the guest experience, including the updating of the door management system for guests to use their cellphones to unlock their room doors.
