Atkinson & Kirby creates a great reception for customers at the Abode Hotel Manchester

10 Sep 2018
Case study

Leading flooring manufacturer Atkinson & Kirby has helped to add character and style to the reception area of the Abode Hotel Manchester as part of its most recent refurbishments.

The Abode Manchester is a luxury hotel situated in the thriving Manchester city centre, being housed in a 19th century textile factory, adding to the unique essence of its environment.

The hotel has recently undergone a number of improvements to both the reception and restaurant areas to continue to enhance the hotel’s facilities, with one of the more notable changes being the addition of new flooring.

Shone Building Ltd, the contractor for the project, supplied the Renaissance range in the shade Marlborough to enhance the sense of luxury and reflect the Abode Hotel’s distinctive style, which focuses on both quality and comfort at the core.

With the high level of footfall the Abode Hotel receives on a daily basis, the inclusion of a durable, long-lasting and eye-catching flooring was a much needed addition to the entrance area.

Nikki XXXX Sales Manager for the Abode Hotel Manchester said: “We are thrilled with the completed look and feel of our reception and restaurant areas. The Atkinson & Kirby flooring supplied for the reception space has been a great addition and helped to add to the sense of luxury and quality that we are focused on achieving.”

Jennifer Bateman, Marketing Executive for Atkinson & Kirby said: “The Renaissance flooring supplied for the Abode Hotel Manchester refurbishment has added a stylish feel to the entrance space, and will be a noticeable addition for guests entering the hotel. Being an engineered product, this particular range will also offer excellent performance for years to come in this busy hotel setting.”
