The Claremont has completed another stage in the award-winning 4-star hotel’s multi-million redevelopment to become the Island’s business visitors’ destination of choice. Following detailed research into the requirements of corporate clients, the Claremont now provides business focused facilities matching the highest international standards.
The latest phase of refurbishment completely renovated and re-designed the entire ground floor of the hotel, transforming the entrance, reception and foyer areas and incorporating premium lounge facilities to provide a convenient and luxurious meeting space. This complete structural and stylistic revision saw the introduction of a new entrance, walnut reception desk, granite tiled lobby, and the opening of structural walls to create a carefully furnished open space. The interior design has been carried out by Berlin-based interior architects, Bernreider, Sieweke-Lagemann Architekten and constructed by G. J. Inghams of Peel
The Claremont’s 4-star privately financed transformation started in 2012 with the wholesale refurbishment of the hotel’s 56 bedrooms into Business Club rooms and suites. Guest rooms now provide Nespresso machines, super-king sized beds with Tempur® mattresses, Hungarian goose down pillows, and elegant wet-rooms with Aveda products. Complimentary high speed broadband is available throughout all areas of the hotel. The upgrade has already seen the Claremont win a raft of awards including the Bloomberg International Hotel Award, the UK Hotel Awards Highly Commended Hotel Interior, Visit Isle of Man Silver Award, Trip-Advisor Certificate of Excellence and most recently the Isle of Man Newspapers Awards for Excellence – Company of the Year.
Commenting on the success of the project, Mark Wilson, Managing Director of Sleepwell Hotels, stated: “Completing this phase of the project marks a turning point not just for the Claremont but for the Island’s corporate hotel facilities as a whole. We set out to create a luxury business class destination which is on par with those available throughout the world’s commercial centres. We have achieved this through persistent consultation with industry experts and unwavering attention to detail. As the Isle of Man cements its reputation as a global business centre it is vital that we meet the needs and expectations of the modern corporate traveller. It is equally important that local businesses remain confident that their hotel of choice reflects the qualities and values they expect for visiting delegates, colleagues and potential investors.”
Mr Wilson continued: “This multi-million pound private commitment to the Island’s premium hospitality sector reflects our confidence in the Isle of Man’s economic future. Only by providing world-class facilities can our business community continue to attract external investment and secure the Island’s international reputation. Our product is now unrivalled within the Isle of Man and I am confident that the international acclaim we have gained positions us well to represent the best of everything that the Island has to offer. We look forward to our future at the pivot of the local business community.”
