The grade II listed country estate, Heythrop Park Hotel, completes refurbishment to 48 guestrooms balancing a timeless look with clever injection of bespoke furniture…
Curtis Furniture has recently completed a refurbishment of 49 guestrooms at the four-star Heythrop Park hotel in Oxfordshire. Operating in a 17th century grade II listed country estate, the newly renovated hotel now adorns a modern look and feel while remaining sensitive to its heritage.
The age of the building provided a challenge for the furniture specialists as the bedrooms were small and ergonomically difficult. The tired guestrooms required refurbishment whilst complying to an exact specification and budget.
The clients specified that the rooms had to meet the high standard of the estate whilst complementing the ambiance of the location. The refurbishment was approached firstly by listening to the client’s needs, then establishing a strategy and finally a solution which would deliver the required results on time, whilst remaining within the given budget.
Curtis provided various pieces of bespoke furniture which were used to solve the problem of the smaller sized rooms. Pale colours were used to make the rooms appear larger, floating bedsides provided more floor space, curved desks saved space whilst providing a functioning workspace and mirrored wardrobes which had sliding doors were used to prevent pinch points. The project took 8 weeks from the first site visit to delivery.
The client’s problem was solved, and the Heythrop Park team were proud to open their doors and a new chapter for the property as well as the hotel it shelters.
