The Nare has launched four comfortable and spacious master suites.
The four Whittington Suites were unveiled to regular guests, friends of The Nare, and the press, at an innovative virtual drinks party earlier this month and are now awaiting their first guests on May 17.
Work started on the multi-million-pound project at the AA five-star hotel on the Roseland in late 2019 and has taken over 15 months to complete.
The four suites are situated over two floors and together form the new western part of the hotel with its own entrance and sea-view lobby. The suites make the most of panoramic sea views across Carne Beach and Gerrans Bay – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They are all individually decorated in The Nare’s elegant country house style and feature a large double bedroom, second bedroom/dressing room, two bathrooms and a generous sitting room.
Named after Olive and Bettye Whittington, great-grandmother and grandmother of current proprietor Toby Ashworth, the suites celebrate over 100 years of Cornish hotel-keeping in the family. They restore the hotel to 40 rooms – the same number as when Bettye acquired the hotel in 1989.
Ashworth commented: “Comfort is at the heart of The Nare. We had the option to create 12 hotel rooms but instead chose to build four comfortable and very spacious suites.
“Our guests are delighted – the suites are already completely booked until November.
“We have long-standing personal relationships with American travel agents and an increasing number of visitors from the USA each year. The Whittington Suites have been designed with overseas guests in mind and firmly position The Nare on the international stage during a prime time as Cornwall prepares to play host to the global G7 Summit.”
