Queens Hotel Blackpool refurbishment complete

19th March 13

Leisureplex Hotel Group is proud to re-open the doors of The Queens Hotel, Blackpool following the second phase of renovation.

Since its purchase in February 2012 of the Queens Hotel in Blackpool has seen considerable investment. All of the bedrooms have been updated with 22” flat screen TVs, hair dryers, hospitality trays, beds, bedroom curtains, bedspreads and beds. There has also been investment in the infrastructure of the kitchen with various new items of kitchen equipment and refrigeration. The leisure centre has been equipped with a new de-humidifier and new lockers. Improvements have also been made to the car parking and space created for coaches to park at the rear of the hotel so that they do not obscure the view from the front of the hotel.

A good deal of investment has been in the “back of house” infrastructure to improve the fire precautions and make sure everything works as it should. Leisureplex Managing Director, Paul Sawbridge commented: “This is only the second phase of our plans for the Queens and will take our expenditure on improvements in the past year to a little under £1m. We have concentrated on making sure everything works properly and so a good deal of the expenditure is not immediately visible. However, it won’t take long for guests to appreciate the great showering experience, superb beds and improved soft furnishings.”

Hotel Manager Alex Hallett is looking forward to welcoming guests and says “We are already experiencing strong demand from returning clients who appreciate the improvements we have already made. We are confident we can look forward to a good summer season in 2013 and look forward to making further improvements next winter.”

In fact Leisureplex spends almost three times the industry average on hotel improvements such as redecorating and re-carpeting a number of public rooms as well as refurbishing at least 10% of our hotel rooms annually.

All 20 Leisureplex Hotels enjoy the best possible locations in their respective resorts and each individual property has great character. Whichever hotel you choose you can be sure of the same standards of clean rooms, good quality décor, bright modern bathrooms and attention to the small details that make all the difference to your stay.
