Over the last 8 months it has been relentless at Woodland Manor Hotel in Clapham, Bedfordshire. Having purchased a 20-year lease, Raj and NeeraRegmi and the hotel’s Commercial and Operations Manager, Freya Whitney have been hard at work transforming and updating the hotel whilst retaining its tremendous grandeur.
The changes to the manor house include, structural work in the Autographs room, where large pillars have been removed to open the events space up. Replacement carpets and furniture in the reception, lounge and bar areas. Freshly decorated entrance and upstairs hallways to the bedrooms and lastly a newly decorated afternoon tea room, our conservatory.
As well as much needed maintenance to the drains, guttering and removal of years and years of overgrowth of ivy to the façade of the manor. ‘Removing the ivy has not only saved the brickwork from long-term damage but you can now really see the building in all its beauty.
As we get busier, I’m enjoying the customers great feedback on what we have done’ – Raj Regmi, Managing Director
‘I’ve had a great time organising and planning the refurbishment works, had some little surprises along the way – that’s old buildings for you, but I’m overjoyed to see the transformation’ Freya Whitney, Commercial and Operations Manager.
