The Royal Toby hotel, restaurant and wedding venue in Rochdale has put the final touches to its £1m refurb this week.

Renovations are true to what the building could have looked like when it was first built and decorated, with a touch of modern elegance throughout.

The Deckers Group, which has owned the property for over 30 years, has invested in a total refit of The Royal Toby’s hotel rooms, including its bridal suites, the Rhyddings function suite for weddings and conferences for up to 150 people and its 200-seat restaurant.

It has reported that the refresh, with touches of luxury throughout, have already helped attract new audiences to The Royal Toby.

Retail Director at The Deckers Group, Rob Walker said: “Since transforming The Royal Toby we’ve noticed a younger demographic, as well as our core family audience, enjoying our venue.

“Our schedule might have been interrupted by the pandemic but we’re now very proud to show off what this investment has led to and we’re sure all of our guests will agree it was worth the wait.”

In the hotel, 50 of The Royal Toby’s 53 rooms were stripped completely and replaced with modern, high spec furniture, carpets, curtains and bathrooms.

The Royal Toby’s restaurant and bar has also undergone a complete refurbishment in the style of Victorian grandeur, but with a modern luxe feel. Its stunning chandeliers were taken down so each crystal could be polished by hand and are back sparkling brighter than ever.

Finally, the Rhyddings function suite has been decorated throughout and with its beautiful chandeliers, oak panelled walls and luxurious new fabrics and carpets, providing the perfect room for weddings or conferences.
