Luxury for a modern age
Inside the main Castle building, the bedrooms and suites have been transformed into luxurious havens, each individually decorated.
BAM also converted the late 19th Century stable block into a health spa, with a luxury swimming pool and café, as well as 23 bedrooms.
At the heart of this building, BAM oversaw the installation of a spectacular glass roof and walls. Specialist contractors were brought in to make sure that the specification for the structural steel supporting the glass was suitable for the chlorinated environment of the swimming pool area.
The Warner Leisure model is focused on entertainment and relaxation, in an adults-only environment. So BAM’s work on the complex included creating a 30-seat private cinema within the old Castle, as well as new archery and air rifle ranges in the grounds.
Between the two older buildings, BAM built a new three-storey block, with 161 family and double bedrooms as well as a dining and entertainment complex designed to host over 400 guests: one of the largest live performance spaces in the UK hotel market. In the evening, huge chandeliers hidden in the roof voids are lowered by electric winches to create the perfect cabaret atmosphere.
