Holte Hotel Back To Former Glories

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 fa├žade 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.'

The management contractor is ISG InteriorExterior.

glad its not being done by the same guys who did wembley!!! Great news though,by concentrating on the immediate area around the ground will make you feel like your 'at the villa' before you even go through the turnstiles. from a business aspect, its important to keep people in the vicinity for longer than the 2-odd hours for the match. turn it into a 'villa-village' and match-days will be a day out as opposed to an afternoon out.

fantastic news. All that money Ellis made out of us and he couldnt think to turn it into a pub! I hope Ellis sees these plans and feels ashamed of himself. Nice on randy.

It seems we are all happy with the news. Randy has now brought us M'ON (forget what Ellis says, he is only here because of Randy). He has given us free travel, supporter consultation, ticketing initiatives and more. However we have not backed any of this as supporters and the crowds are a terrible reflection on what is happening at VP. So whilst all the words are good from the fans, it will be interestimg to see how much use is made of the Holte Hotel when it is restored. Maybe most fans just talk a good game and when it does open it will just be used for a couple of hours on matchday??? Shame on us if that is the case. So whilst I would like to see the venue restored, and no doubt I shall use it for a pint myself, if that is all that fans will use it for, maybe the money would be better spent on the team.
