Holte Hotel Back To Former Glories
Aston Villa have released plans for the Holte Hotel restoration which is due to be completed before the end of May 2007.
The official sites says: 'Club officials are delighted to confirm that a Victorian-style pub/lounge, for use by supporters on match days, will be the focal point of the renovation project.'
'The exterior of the building will be returned to its former glory with the façade and windows reflecting the style of its Victorian origins. The completed, four-storey project will feature a pub/lounge area on the ground floor with further facilities on other levels offering function rooms to accommodate regular social events and provide the potential for beam-backs of live first team action on away match days.'
If beam backs can be arranged (not sure they are allowed due to tv deals with Sky are they?) it would be a great place to go!
Head of Business Villa, Alison Plant told www.avfc.co.uk: 'The new board quickly recognised the importance to the supporters of such an historic building and the idea was to make the Holte Hotel a focal point at Villa Park once again. This project will provide exactly that and I'm sure fans will be delighted with the outcome.'
