Les Douvres Hotel – Bedroom refurbishment is overnight success
The final phase of a stunning bedroom refurbishment has been completed at Les Douvres Hotel in St Martin, Guernsey, in a project which has transformed the remaining six of the hotel’s 19 bedrooms.
The project was carried out by main contractors Daryl Rix, who were commended for the high standard of their work. The interior design for all of the 19 bedrooms was created by Amanda Walker, owner of the family-run hotel.
Charlie Walker, General Manager of the hotel said: “The bedrooms were previously looking rather dated, and were in need of refurbishment. All of the remaining six rooms were completely stripped out and totally refurbished, including the introduction of new full height wooden wall panelling, giving a lovely modern contemporary look with a stylish rustic twist.
“The overall colour palette is in a combination of subtle beige, light brown and beige with black accents, and stylish new white shutters have replaced the curtains. New carpeting featuring a fine striped grey, blue and beige has also been laid, and all new furniture has been installed including new beds, fridges and bespoke desks and storage units to match the new wall panelling. Two of the bedrooms also have interconnecting doors concealed within the wall panelling.”
All of the bathrooms were also completely renovated, including the removal of the floral design tiling which was replaced by simple white tiles, as well as the installation of new glass vanity units, heated towel rails and all new Villeroy & Bosch sanitaryware. Baths have been installed in some of the bathrooms, with showers being installed in others.
Charlie Walker concluded: “We are incredibly pleased with the new rooms and feedback from guests has been absolutely fantastic – everyone is delighted.
“Daryl Rix contractors, who also carried out the majority of the previous phases of the bedroom refurbishments did a very good job.”
