Applegarth Villa Hotel – Business boost
Owners of a luxury hotel in the heart of the Lake District are overwhelmed by the response they are receiving after launching seven brand new luxury hot tub suites at Applegarth Villa Hotel & Restaurant.
Within just six months of officially opening the £2.3 million suites, they are already proving to be a great success for the family owned and run business, who are seeing repeat bookings as guests are wanting to sample each individually designed suite for themselves and increasing business by 50% each month and rising.
Suzanne Mumford owner of Applegarth Villa said:
“We are absolutely delighted with the new luxury suites and the fantastic response we are receiving from both our regular guests who stay with us in the hotel and have treated themselves to a night or two in a suite as well as the brand new customers who we are welcoming to Applegarth for the first time.”
“The suites have been so well received the only problem we foresee is that we are doing the rest of the county an injustice as guests are checking into the suites and not leaving them until it’s time to go home. They have become mini retreats in the centre of the Lake District.”
Situated next door to the fifteen-bedroom hotel in the Coach House, you will find three different types available including AV Suites, Garden Suites and one Duplex each with stunning views of the Lakeland fells. The Garden Suites offer accessible accommodation with private entrances and easy direct access to each suite. They are also dog friendly where guests can treat their four legged friends to a little piece of luxury by pre-ordering food and treats for their stay.
Each interior has been individually designed by local Interior Designer Val Dunn, also based in Windermere. Val is well established in the South Lakeland area, where she has been working in interior design and furnishings for over twenty years. Each fixture and fitting is complimented with the latest gadgets including superfast broadband and mood lighting as well as an extremely popular outside space consisting of a balcony or terrace complete with its own private hot tub.
Within weeks of opening the suites Applegarth Villa continued to be recognised for its outstanding quality and service with the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards listing them in the top 25 luxury hotels in the UK category, the only choice from the region and one of only three hotels from the north of England. This well-deserved accolade built on their 2015 success of being listed in the top 25 romantic hotels in the UK wards. In June this year Applegarth Villa was also shortlisted as finalists in the Guest Accommodation of the Year category at the annual Cumbria Tourism awards ceremony.
