The Perfect Hotel Room… what about the Hotel?
It seems to be the subject at the moment to discuss the perfect hotel room and what the guest wants, especially after recent events such as The Independent Hotel Show where Chic Retreats created a whole book on this.
Watergate Bay Hotel, Cornwall – Fresh, clean coastal scheme
We think it starts with the Hotel and its service, experience and comfort. I recently saw an article by Ella McDougall of Habitus saying that it’s the ‘glamour of vacation with the comforts of home’ That feeling of getting away but the home comforts, those items you need are all essential to the perfect setting.
The statistics that have been shared by Chic Retreats included “My dream hotel bedroom doesn’t feel like a hotel bedroom. It feels like home” and “I want somewhere you can get lost in and forget the rush and stress, of life” It all points to comfort away from home with a few extravagances!
We can talk about the ambiance, the colour shades, the lighting, the fragrances, the technology, the complimentary items, the furniture, the bed, the Art, the view, the room size, and the cleanliness and so on. All this has to be right and consistent through the hotel from entrance to terrace.
A recent discussion in Hansgrohe Water studio recorded by Mix Media covers many elements of design from a number of industry experts. This conversation covers everything from the hotel for the business person, the parents, the hopeless romantics, the escapists and so on. The discussion is between hotel management, construction, designers and suppliers and gives some great insights on latest trends.
Another Place Hotel, Ullswater, Lake District – Cosy library area
Recent projects we have worked on include Another Place Hotel and The Ned, both are quite different and very different in locations but have put a huge amount of emphasis on the experience of the consumer with the comfort and luxury at the top. Another Place is advertised as somewhere you can go for ‘active relaxation’ with its swim club, spa or somewhere to cosy up and read a book. The Ned however in the City of London offers ‘Crash pads to Signature Suites’ along with an array of restaurants, gym, spa, rooftop lounge, nail bar, hairdresser and everything for a lifestyle venue offering to escape from the city life.
The Ned, London – The more traditional classic style bedroom suites
To summarise the ‘Perfect Hotel Room’ or ‘The Perfect Hotel’ is a sanctuary we believe where you can escape and therefore needs plenty of spaces to relax, and free yourself from this busy lifestyle many of us lead.
Outdoor furniture is made to withstand outside temperature and related environmental conditions. It is for this reason that moving indoor furniture outdoors would not be the best of ideas. For example, in tropical countries, outdoor furniture would be made such that they endure heat as well as rain. Humid climates mean more moisture content which […]

For the best customer service and to ensure repeat business, a restaurant designer shouldn’t just think about how attractive the exterior of the restaurant is, the interior speaks volume too, just like the glamorous exterior. While considering the design of a restaurant interior, there are several segments to focus on and the whole process can […]
Imagine the scene. You have a meeting at a new company. As you step into the reception, you’re met with an office space that’s dull, grey and uninspiring. Think Mad Men meets The Office (only without the comic relief). Now picture the complete opposite. The area is spacious; the atmosphere friendly and inviting. You get […]
Coffee, anyone? A simple enough question, and one we say to friends and colleagues alike day in and day out. And why not? A quick chat over a cup of coffee is as much a part of everyday office life as a weekly meeting or a brainstorming session. So why not make your company cafe […]
