Hotel Le Scarabee

Hotel Le Scarabee opened for business last weekend – Guiseley’s newest lifestyle residency.   Look out for upcoming reviews on Tripadviser.

Rain delayed construction by a week,  but all was bright and sunny on Saturday 14th July, as the last wood shaving was laid.  Designed by local lad, Rob Turner, and project managed by Andy Cheetham, the construction had expert input from Darren Shepherd, and was lovingly crafted by Sue Jackson, Steve Magson, Caroline Herries.

The hotel stands in its own historic, wooded grounds, surrounded by traditional Yorkshire hawthorn hedging.  A wide, circular drive leads to the main door of the majestic six storey building which has an alpine design.  Surrounded on all sides with a compost course made from rosebay willow herb, and with ample supplies of bramble patches for the most discerning of guests, there is no need to leave Hotel Le Scarabee for any creature comforts.

It is planned that the Hotel will be joined by a sister construction later this year;  the grounds will also have affordable housing added for local bats and birds.

The construction team will continue the work on Wednesday and Thursday evening, 18th and 19th of July between 7 – 9pm; all Friends wishing to roll their sleeves up to help with Guiseley’s latest attraction, are very welcome.

    If you listen very carefully on a still day, a faint sound of music can be heard coming from the hotel. Almost always something by the Beatles or indeed Adam Ant himself.

    Not to mention the tones of McFly, Bee Gees, Papa Roach, Buddy Holly and the Crickets and W.A.S.P
