For this venture we were thrilled to be appointed by Kit Graves, Director of Lake District Hotels, on the renovation of Lodore Falls’ bar; restaurant; reception; and circulation areas. We also worked in conjunction with Interior Designer Mike Fac, and Project Manager Gary Crisp, on the beautiful and natural looking stone affect carpet by Wilton Carpets.
The design required was a natural-look carpet, to correspond with the natural beauty surrounding the 200 year old, slate fronted hotel. Standing on the edge of Lake Derwentwater, Lodore Falls boasts one of the optimum settings in the Lake District and has a spectacular scenery including 40 acres of landscaped gardens, mountainous views and a grand waterfall.
KQC Commercial and Wilton Carpets worked on this spectacular 10 Row Axminster carpet via their CAD drawing facilities, which was beautifully fitted afterwards by John Lawton, Adam Armitt and Luke Nicholson. Project Manager Gary worked tirelessly alongside other parties involved in this project, to meet the clients’ needs, making sure all elements of the job were completed on time, effortlessly, and with no hindrance or complications within the tight deadline.
This particular development was considered as Phase I, completing 700 square metres of the beautifully woven Axminster carpet in the new year of 2017. In the Summer of 2017, we will embark on Phase II of this project which will see us laying the same carpet, in the Lodore Fall’s magnificent Garden Suite- a conference and facility room which is used for large meetings and functions seating up to 170 people, overlooking our award winning gardens and breathtaking scenery within close proximity.
“The service and workmanship were excellent, the contractors were knowledgeable and gave us the confidence to order additional items as the main carpet was fitted, such as the non-slip flooring behind the bar and the door matting. This is the second time we have used KQC and certainly won’t be the last!”
