Case study: Simply the best for the beds of Billesley Manor Hotel & Spa

Steeped in history, but with a very contemporary take on luxury, it made perfect sense for Billesly Manor Hotel & Spa to plump for a Hypnos bed when looking for the perfect nights sleep…

Billesley Manor really is the perfect peaceful sanctuary from the outside world. Each guestroom and suite has been designed with luxury, style, and comfort in mind. So, when it came to selecting the beds, only the best would do, and specifying a Hypnos Bed fulfilled all the criteria.

Recently refurbished, the 16th-Century, four-star Billesley Manor Hotel and Spa boasts 71 beautifully designed guestrooms and sits in 11 acres of magnificent countryside just outside the medieval town of Stratford-Upon-Avon. Combining heritage charm with modern luxury is not the only thing this alluring Elizabethan Manor is famous for. Legend has it that in 1599, Shakespeare penned his comedy ‘As You Like It’ at Billesley Manor, having married Anne Hathaway at All Saints church which sits in the grounds, some years earlier.

“As a hotel, sleep is one of the most important components of our guests’ stay, and so it was important that we got it right,” said Stephen Fearnley, General Manager FIH, Billesley Manor Hotel and Spa. “Hypnos Contract Beds were selected and asked to supply their most luxurious mattress, the Lansdowne Cashmere with Classic Divan Bases and Flexi Bases. This specification provides ultimate comfort and luxury for our guests and supports our mission to provide the very best in sleep in the UK.”

“We believe it is incredibly important to opt for natural fibres where possible, said Carolyn Mitchell, Sales and Marketing Director, Hypnos Contract Beds. “Our Lansdowne Cashmere mattress combines wool and cashmere for the highest degree of comfort and luxury. Our mattress design allows independent movement of each pocket spring, meaning the mattress adjusts to the sleeper’s body shape. At the same time the natural fibres help regulate body temperature to create the perfect climate for quality sleep. We are delighted that Billesley Manor chose to provide their guests with the ultimate sleep experience.”

As the go-to name in sleep comfort, Hypnos Contract Beds is trusted to deliver the all-important component for a perfect nights’ sleep at hotels around the world. Hypnos believe in creating comfort with integrity and were the first UK bed manufacturer to become carbon neutral, an accolade achieved over a decade ago. In 2020 Hypnos received the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development.

So whether it’s the season for a midsummer night’s dream, or the winters tale, you can rest assured that this partnership will give you a perfect nights sleep along with everything else on offer at Billesley Manor.

Cult Hotels’ ambition to bring its game-changing new concept to the market includes providing guests with an exceptional sleep experience with Hypnos Contract Beds…

Cult Hotels is the brainchild of Julian Dunkerton, Co-Founder of fashion giant Superdry and the highly successful Cotswold’s hotel and restaurant portfolio, The Lucky Onion. Dunkerton said it was his ‘ambition’ to bring a ‘game-changing’ new concept to the market, which included providing his guests with an exceptional sleep experience by working closely with Hypnos Contract Beds.

The George in Cheltenham is the first hotel within the design led Cult Hotels collection. Located across five Grade II listed Regency townhouses, the 46-key hotel has undergone a total refurbishment. You’ll still find sweeping staircases, ornate coving, and elegant panelling, but they’re now paired with bold colours, mismatched textures, and industrial design.

As someone who sees life as a world of opportunity, Dunkerton is clear that Cult Hotels, named after his first fashion brand, fills a gaping hole in the market. Centrally located with easy access to great restaurants, Cult Hotels aims to provide its guests with wonderful rooms at affordable price points. The quality of the refurbishment is impressive, and all their rooms feature top of the range Hypnos beds, epic showers, and super-fast WiFi. A moody palette of deep blues and greys, brightly tiled bathrooms and a selection of Penguin paperback classics at each bedside all add to the boutique vibe.

We’ve focussed on the raw ingredients and cut out the fluff,explained Dunkerton. “What we are offering is a truly amazing stay. Brilliant as boltholes for business travellers and anything-but-ordinary bases for weekend escapes.”

The Lucky Onion was founded in 2006, on the ethos of great design, high quality food and drink and exceptional service. “Cult Hotels and The Lucky Onion family are all about delivering an exceptional experience to their guests and we are delighted to be a part of their story,” said Carolyn Mitchell, sales and marketing director, Hypnos Contract Beds. “You can count on a fabulous night’s sleep in any one of their properties, as each room is furnished with a Hypnos Lansdowne Cashmere mattress for the ultimate in comfort and luxury.”

No. 131 is The Lucky Onion’s flagship hotel and restaurant, providing the perfect balance of sophistication and fun. A trio of beautiful Georgian townhouses set in the heart of Cheltenham, it is classic on the outside and contemporary British on the inside. The 36 guestrooms are all styled with bold, statement prints, period bathrooms and sumptuous Hypnos beds for a touch of old-fashioned luxury.

Uniquely combining the luxury of a hotel with the independence of a bed and breakfast, No.38 The Park is a home away from home. The 13 individually designed guestrooms feature home comforts with luxury ensuite bathrooms. A peaceful setting for couples and families alike. The Wheatsheaf is an idyllic ivy-clad British Inn located at the heart of the beautiful sleepy Cotswold village of Northleach, providing the perfect countryside retreat. The 14 guestrooms are classically decorated with an industrial twist, again each with an enormous emperor size Hypnos bed, deep freestanding bathtub and beautiful period bathroom making them the ideal escape from the daily grind.

As well as its determination to deliver unrivalled comfort and hospitality, The Lucky Onion and Hypnos also share a commitment to sustainability. Dunkerton said: “Sustainability is important to me as a human being,” pointing towards the purchase of electricity from the right company as being a simple and easy way of making a huge difference to the environment. “I’m proud to say we were an early adopter of renewable energy. We use Ecotricity – what they do is spectacular. We all have an obligation to start this journey.”

The same ethos is applied when selecting bed suppliers to partner with. Hypnos Contract Beds was the obvious choice, it is an industry-leader when it comes to matters of sustainability and the environment, priding itself on producing beds which are 100 per cent recyclable and never need go to landfill as a result.

“We’re sustainable in every part of our business and we aim to help set the sustainability standards for the bed industry,” said Richard Naylor, Sustainable Development Director, Hypnos Beds. “We make the most comfortable beds in the world, and that comfort is delivered with the utmost integrity.”

As a pioneer of sustainable bed making, Hypnos was the first carbon neutral bedmaker in the world. As a family owned business and Royal Warrant Holder, Hypnos is committed to making beds in a way that can be enjoyed by generations to come. Each bed is handmade in England, using over 100 years of knowledge and passion in design and craftsmanship to build the most comfortable, stylish, and sustainable beds. In 2020, Hypnos was delighted to be presented The Queens Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development.
