The Final Hurdle...

18th April 2018

It feels like it’s been a long time coming, but we are on the last leg of our #FitForAKing refurbishment project now. FINALLY!

We have over 120 of our bedrooms, our open lobby, meeting rooms and Leicestershire Suite now complete; we just have the reception, the pool and the remaining bedrooms to go and hopefully about three weeks left of having builders on site. VERY EXCITING!

In the last post I told you about the open lobby concept, it’s great that it’s all done now and our guests can enjoy it. It’s amazing how much bigger the space feels and how much lighter and brighter it is. We have our new ‘grab and go’ lunch fridge which is also proving a popular addition. Nice shot of the bookcase in the lobby with the crown….see what we did there?!  

We are finding the whole area is being used much more both by our residential guests and others that are just in Leicester for an informal meeting, so I guess we have achieved what we set out to do…. Create a more inviting space for everyone! Don’t take my word for it though….You’ll have to come and see for yourself!

The Leicestershire Suite is looking fab too, particularly like the artwork, great pastel colours and very Leicester centric. The new lighting does make a massive difference to the room too.

As I mentioned earlier, reception and the pool are the current priorities downstairs, we have a temporary reception in place in our foyer area at the moment, and the pool is closed so we can replace the ceiling and lighting in the wet area. Thanks to all our guests and health club members for baring with us…It’s all for the greater good and will all be worth it come May! Hopefully, the next post will be the announcement of (dare I say it)….completion!
