COURTYARD EXETER SANDY PARK HOTEL (MARRIOTT)
The new £35 million pound Courtyard Exeter Sandy Park Hotel (Marriott) is progressing as planned.
Work on the state-of-the-art, 250-bed, eight-story development began in mid-January 2020 and is continuing apace, this despite the current coronavirus outbreak which has affected the daily workings of people across the world.
In addition to housing 250 bedrooms, the hotel situated off Old Rydon Lane will provide leisure facilities on the entry floor, which includes a lounge, a snack and coffee bar, as well as a purpose-built business centre. Also included in the designs, which have now been finalised, is a rooftop cocktail bar, together with a Fish & Steak restaurant that boasts picturesque views down the River Exe Estuary and towards Torbay.
Coming under the worldwide Courtyard by Marriott brand, the four-star facility will also boast an impressive glazed bridge link to Sandy Park, creating a connection with the stadium that will offer travelling supporters or event attendees the perfect opportunity to stay on the doorstep!
The rooftop restaurant is described as 'one of its kind for the area' and will provide a 'unique dining experience for guests and visitors', including two private dining rooms, serving locally caught fish from Brixham, prime Devon red beef, alongside other exquisite produce from across the region.
As well as helping to drive additional business towards Sandy Park Conference & Banqueting Centre during the week, the hotel will also be a welcome addition to supporters heading to the city for match-days involving the Exeter Chiefs.
We are planning on opening the hotel in early 2022, watch out for further updates across our social media channels in the coming months.
