The Crown Hotel, Carlisle

The four star Crown Hotel is in the lovely village of Wetheral just outside Carlisle, a stones throw from Hadrians Wall. The brief was to convert an existing Georgian building being used for staff accommodation into new bedrooms with ensuite and to update the existing Spa with a new gym and changing rooms. We did three interior schemes across the 10 new bedrooms to reflect the three different grades of rooms making the most of the fabulous high ceilings in some of the rooms. Punchy accent colours were combined with wools and warm textures to create inviting and calm rooms for guests. The larger ground floor rooms had sofa beds to accommodate families and accessories and details reflect the history and countryside location. The Spa had lovely new changing rooms with glass partitions, a new updated gym with new equipment , a new lounge seating area for a coffee and the pool area was painted and updated with new lighting and whirlpool. It was a fabulous project, both guests and Spa members love the results and it has given new lift to the hotel.
