BURLINGTON RIGHT ON ‘Q’ WITH PRESTIGE HOTEL GROUP
Burlington’s natural stone has played a pivotal part in the £11 million refurbishment programme undertaken by prestige hotel group operator, QHotels, at its stunning Norton Park 4-star deluxe hotel complex in Winchester.
Indeed it is here that Burlington’s natural stone vanity tops and splashbacks have been featured within each of the hotel’s 185 guest bathrooms, all of which are en suite to luxuriously finished and fully equipped bedrooms.
Specified by Glasgow-based architects Thompson MacLeod as part of the palette of interior finishing materials for the project, Burlington supplied the vanity tops and splashbacks in its pale-green Elterwater stone with a honed finish.
Featuring CNC machined routed cut-outs shaped to accommodate contrasting white ceramic washbasin sanitaryware and contemporary stainless steel taps and accessories, the Elterwater stone vanity units serve to deliver clean lines in terms of the overall interior look of the bathrooms, whilst also providing a high level of functionalism. Installation of the Burlington stone was undertaken by main contractors for the project, Bournemouth-based George & Harding.
Standing in 54 acres of Hampshire Parkland, Norton Park Hotel has not only benefited from the refurbishment of the existing building’s bedrooms, bathrooms and public spaces, a cedar board and brickwork clad extension has been added, not to mention the creation of a new conference centre, rebranded bar, dining facility and leisure club area.
Established in 2003, QHotels currently operates a group of twenty-two prestigious, elegant and traditional hotels. Lying at the heart of the company’s ethos is a desire to provide guests with a rewarding experience wherever they choose to stay within the group, and whether relating to a business, wedding, conference, meeting, event or banquet.
