    Its 76 luxury guestrooms and suites have been created with the utmost care and attention-to-detail to provide a stylish retreat and place of relaxation.The resort offers spectacular views of Pendle Hill and the surrounding countryside, as well as the hotel’s beautiful ornamental lake and fabulous gardens.

    The Brief

    During the construction of the Crow Wood Hotel & Spa Report, building contractor Walsh Integrated Building Services sought a trusted supplier to provide durable wiring accessories with a high quality, designer finish. Electrical wholesaler LED Electrical Nelson, based in Nelson, Lancashire, recommended Hamilton Litestat’s products for installation throughout the bedrooms and bathrooms in its 70 guestrooms, along with the bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas in its six guest suites.

    The solution

    Hamilton worked closely with LED Electrical Nelson and Walsh Integrated Building Services to find designer decorative wiring accessories suited to the aesthetic and functionality requirements of the modern and effortlessly stylish guestrooms and suites. Aiming for an elegant and timeless look, Hamilton’s sleek Hartland CFX design was chosen for all applications throughout the guest areas, ensuring design continuity. It was selected in a sophisticated satin steel finish with satin steel switches and black inserts, which complement the finish of the bespoke accent light fittings selected for the rooms.

    In each of the 70 guestrooms, three plates with differing functionalities were located on each side of the bed: a switched double socket for easy charging of devices; a single one-gang switch plate to control the bedside reading light, and a single two-gang switch plate to control both lighting located above the bed and the main room light. Further wiring accessories were selected for installation at each desk/vanity area in the guestrooms. A two-Gang 13A Switched Socket with both 2.1A and 1A USB charging outlets allow guests to easily use devices and work at the desk if needed. A 5A lighting point was also installed within the seating area to ensure the space is well lit.

    For installation in the six suites, Hamilton provided additional charging points and lighting control functionality. At the side of each bed, the switched double socket has been upgraded to include dual 2.1A and 1A USB outlets for additional charging options. The bedside two-gang switch is replaced with retractive switches that deliver dimming capability, allowing guests to alter the light intensity depending on their requirements or preferred ambience. All guestrooms and suites have a dual 2.1A and 1A USB switched socket located at the desk/vanity area, while the suites also have a four-gang grid plate positioned here to control the lighting for the lobby, seated area and bed area. In the seated area, two additional 5A unswitched sockets support the power requirements for lamps positioned either side of the suite’s TV monitor. Throughout all bathrooms, a single grid plate with 20A cable outlet is installed for the heated towel rail.
