A new-look Village Hotel Club in 2016
Village The Hotel Club have announced details of a £35m investment plan that incorporates significant refurbishment plans & new technology starting with 8 of their key UK locations & more to follow.
The first locations are:
- London Watford Coventry Manchester Cheadle Manchester Bury Warrington
- Cardiff Maidstone and Bournemouth
To start, they are fully refurbishing all the bedrooms & bathrooms and both will have a new feature ‘stripe' wall & new mattresses. Additionally, new 48' wall mounted TV's with their UpperDeck rooms featuring a 55' inch wall mounted TV with Sky and Bluetooth sound bar.
All bedroom corridors will be refurbished and following that, investment in the health & fitness clubs, their pubs The Public House, restaurants and conference & meetings rooms is planned. They are on track for completion by the end of April 2016.
For their meeting and conference rooms, February sees the start of the installation of "click-share" wireless connectivity to TV's and projectors, plus new 65' TV's in meeting rooms and new projectors in larger conference rooms. By the end of April 2016, all conference and meeting areas will have had a complete refurbishment in the 8 locations. Plans are also in place to then continue the meeting room refurbishment programme to the rest of the brand.
Village Glasgow's guests have been giving great feedback on the new self service check in facility that was launched when the hotel opened in Summer 2015. Each kiosk, of which there are 4, allows you to search for your reservation by surname, allocates a room and issues you with a key. Their lobby hosts are on hand for any questions or any assistance required – shifting their focus from the computer screen to the customer.
Based on their success in Glasgow, on completion of the refurbishment to the current 8 locations, self service check in will be available. The remainder of the hotels will all have self service check in by December 2016.
Village has also recognised that good WiFi is becoming a non-negotiable requirement when travelling on business or leisure and will have completed a wifi upgrade to all 28 of their UK locations by the end of March 2016 improving coverage and speed. Village continue to offer this free of charge to unlimited devices in each hotel.
It is looking to be an exciting year ahead for Village as they continue their refurbishment, investment and development.
