This conversion of the redundant Eye Hospital in Exeter produced an award-winning 49 bedroom hotel with conference facilities, a restaurant and a night club. The restaurant is a very contemporary extension to the original listed building. It has won awards for both its architecture and its food.

The Old Eye Hospital had been vacant for years when we were asked to look at the feasibility of conversion to a boutique hotel. The existing building simply couldn’t accommodate a decent restaurant. It was our inventive solution to providing new space that unlocked the opportunity.
