Two Warwickshire hotels have carried out major revamps.
Mallory Court Hotel at Leamington Spa has ploughed in around £750,000 to turn a former groundskeeper's cottage into a restaurant.
And seventeeth century Nailcote Hall, near Berkswell, has completed a £500,000 makeover.
A six-month conversion project has transformed the old cottage at Mallory Court.
General manager Andrew Grahame said: "We felt that we needed to offer our guests something a bit different. The Brasserie is a big step forward for us, and will have a much more informal atmosphere and a more accessible menu than we can currently offer in our main restaurant."
The doors are scheduled to open on September 16.
Nailcote Hall - near to the NEC and Birmingham Airport - has received an upgrade in decor and furnishings throughout the hotel, with new carpeting and lighting.
And many of the bedrooms are equipped with the latest flat screen TV/DVD players.
Other work includes the en-suite bathrooms being finished in Spanish porcelanosa tiling and new fittings to create a range of unique designs.
