Hotel Projects
** In 2014 we decorated 7 hotels! **

Sopwell House Hotel Project 2

This project was carried out over a very short program which consisted of a complete strip out and refurbishment the conference reception and Mountbatten Suite at Sopwell House Hotel in St Albans. Phillips Decorators responsibility was to apply emulsion to all of the new MF ceilings and coffers which were then finished in vinyl matt. The walls were prepared and emulsion was applied to the walls and completed with a dead flat finish. All timber panelling and doors required aluminium primer followed by three coats of eggshell. In the reception area the walls behind desk and to the front of desk itself were finished in a designer wide vinyl paper.

Phillips Decorators have completed many projects at Sopwell House Hotel over the past few years and each time the client is very happy with the outcome.

We look forward to working with both the client and the hotel in the near future.

Sopwell House Hotel Project 1

The refurbishment works which Phillips Decorators carried out were to the Terrace bar area and corridors leading to the bedrooms. Included in the works was papering the corridors with emulsion to ceilings and walls. All woodwork was painted in an eggshell finish. The terrace bar area was great to see all the signed shirts from lots of famous footballers. All works were carried out while the hotel was operating.

Sopwell House is a historic Georgian country house nestled in 12 acres of tranquil gardens, now a luxurious 4star, 129 room hotel, country club & spa set in the Southern part of Albans, Hertfordshire.

Five Lakes Hotel, Rushley Suite

Phillips Decorators have completed many projects at the Five Lakes Hotel over the years. On this occasion, we redecorated the Rushley Suites. Emulsion was expertly applied to all of the plastered ceilings and the timber panels on the walls were etched primed. 3 coats of oil Eggshell finished it off, using Mohair roller sleeves to give an excellent smooth finish. All plastered walls in the conference rooms were papered with beautiful modern wallpaper, which gave it that professional finishing touch our client was looking for. All the areas behind the bar were emulsioned using a Dulux Diamond finish for durability.
