    Stoneleigh Park is the first exhibition and conference venue in the UK to have installed a revolutionary hotel concept which opened its doors on 1st October.

    Stoneleigh Park has more than doubled its number of bedrooms from 58 to 138, meaning event organisers and visitors can easily stay on-site to be at the heart of their event.Called Snoozebox, this transportable modular accommodation offers comfortable and secure bedrooms, along with everything you would expect from a conventional hotel, such as reception services, daily housekeeping and a 24-hour duty manager. The rooms are fitted out to a high standard with modern fixtures and a stylish décor. Sound and heat insulation provides comfort and privacy, and each room has its own thermostatic controls including air conditioning. The rooms include a double bed together with a single bed, flat screen TV, Wi-Fi and a safe. The en-suite wet room comprises a power shower, toilet and wash basin.

    Although Snoozebox units have previously been used to support specific events, such as the British Grand Prix and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, Stoneleigh Park leads the way in the industry by installing the solution for multiple events.

    With a busy calendar of public and trade exhibitions attracting up to 25,000 visitors per event, plus conferences for up to 2,000 delegates at any one time, Stoneleigh Park understands how important and convenient it is for organisers to be on site. The fresh, comfortable, quirky Snoozebox will allow organisers and visitors alike to park for free outside the door of the hotel with absolutely everything they need within easy walking distance.

    Ian Pegler, chief executive of Stoneleigh Park, commented: “We have a reputation for being an extremely versatile venue, and with so much indoor and outdoor space we can often do what other venues can’t. When we were increasingly finding our existing on-site hotel accommodation fully booked, Snoozebox provided an ideal flexible and immediate solution to the growing demand. We are thrilled with the high spec accommodation and are sure our event organisers and visitors will be too. Indeed, as well as catering for existing clients, hopefully it will now attract more organisers to consider Stoneleigh Park for their events.”

    The Hotel was constructed over two days and is situated next to Stoneleigh Park’s existing 4-star guest hotel.

    Robert Breare, CEO at Snoozebox, added: “We are delighted to have installed the first ever Snoozebox at an exhibition and conference venue. Stoneleigh Park has shown itself to be forward thinking and responsive, turning to us for a quick, flexible but high quality solution to a growing demand from event organisers. The accommodation is of a 4-star specification and provides a comfortable, secure base for event visitors with all the mod cons. Set in the vast and beautiful grounds at Stoneleigh Park, we are sure that people will enjoy staying there.”
