News: Aston Hall's West Wing opens with a flying start


The Mayor of Rotherham officially opened the final phase of Aston Hall's major expansion, the West Wing, in style with a little help from the Yorkshire Air ambulance crew. A summer party, which was attended by more than 300 people, was held at the hotel to celebrate the opening of the West Wing. The party included a champagne reception and barbeque and a tour of the newly opened West Wing. Guests were also treated to an appearance from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) and crew, who landed on the hotel's lawns. The YAA is the hotel's chosen charity. Built in 1772 Aston Hall stands in 55 acres of land and was originally designed by York architect John Carr. The Tomahawk Group bought Aston Hall in 2005 and the hotel has been lovingly restored and updated with a cool, contemporary design that is high in style but with all the original features very much intact. The Mayor of Rotherham said: "The West Wing is a fantastic addition to Aston Hall and I was delighted to be asked to officially open it. The rooms are very luxurious and are beautifully decorated. "This addition will be a great boost for the local tourism and leisure industry in Rotherham." Craig Squelch, General Manager at Aston Hall, said: "Since the Tomahawk Hotel Group purchased the hotel in February 2005 the hotel has been completely transformed into the luxury hotel it is today. "With the opening of Darcy House and now the West Wing the hotel's facilities have been enhanced and look absolutely fantastic. "We are very much looking forward to welcoming new guests as well as our loyal customers to the new look Aston Hall and I am sure they will be impressed with the completed expansion."
