STRATFORD-UPON-AVON’S historic Falcon Hotel will retain its iconic front signage featuring The Falcon name though the hotel is still set to be rebranded as the Hotel Blue Indigo in 2018.

Back in March the Herald reported that the Grade II-Listed hotel which has been named The Falcon since 1661, would be renamed following a major refurbishment.

Falcon Hotel operator, The St James’s Hotel Group, had hinted at retaining The Falcon name in some capacity and has now revealed that, in addition to retaining the front Falcon sign, the hotel’s restaurant will be called The Falcon.

Nicholas Crawley, managing director of St James’s Hotel Group, said: “We are currently exploring a number of ways that we can continue to use The Falcon name in conjunction with the hotel. The decision has been made to name the hotel restaurant, The Falcon.

“The Falcon signage displayed on the front of the hotel building will also remain to preserve the look and charm of the building.”

Hotel manager, Jason Mayglothling, said: “This is the best of both worlds for us, it’s a very positive thing for the hotel.”

In other developments, last month an application was submitted to Stratford District Council to redevelop a building on Scholars Lane next door to The Falcon, to create additional office and meeting space for the hotel.

Mr Mayglothling added: “There is going to be a significant investment in the hotel and this will allow us to provide much needed meeting and office space for us to better serve our customers.”
