In a recent blog we looked at the benefits of a fire pit in a commercial environment. Due to the Covid 19 crisis this subject gained a lot of traction within the hospitality business. We have decided to delve further into this with a case study of the Lakeside Hotel and Spa.
The Lakeside Hotel and Spa overlooks Lake Windermere, a mere stone’s throw from the water’s edge; a 4 star superior hotel in the Lake District World Heritage site. Priding itself on giving a warm welcome and 5 star service to all who pass through their doors, there is no better location from which to explore the southern Lakes. Lakeside is fortunate to have the only Aveda Destination Spa in the England. Treatment rooms and relaxation areas, alongside a beautiful 17m pool with views out to the lake and beyond, are exclusive to residents and spa day guests. Visitors can also enjoy a newly-enhanced Spa Garden with its unrivaled lakeside position, allowing you to wander from the Spa to the water’s edge. The addition of a stunning fire pit and warming heat domes makes this garden area a perfect place to unwind and enjoy the panoramic views.
Most bedrooms & suites benefit from a stunning lake or garden views to wake up to. Contemporary design meets classic country house in a rich blend of colour and texture that feels stylish, warm and welcoming.
A Word From The Team At Lakeside Hotel And Spa
“We are delighted to be back open for resident guests, it’s a pleasure to be able to offer a tranquil haven for folks that have had a difficult few months. Although we have had to adapt our operating procedures to comply with guidelines, ‘keeping it simple’ has been our motto. In order to be confident we are operating a safe environment for both our guests and Lakeside team:
– We have adjusted our opening hours to 5 nights each week for residents only. This allows for weekly deep clean and for bookings of 4 or 5 nights the room will only be used by one guest in any 7 night period.
– We are only selling 50% of our rooms over the five day period, making social distancing easier and more natural.
– We have moved all our dining to be by the Lake, making use of our light and airy conservatory, with tables socially distanced and allocated to guests throughout their stay.
We are as ever promoting the fantastic outdoors activities and attractions nearby including great new walks from the hotel and of course our spacious outdoor terrace, observation deck and spa garden complete with fire pit and heat lamps perfect for Autumn nights.
We believe this is best operating practice for guests’ enjoyment and most importantly for safety of the Lakeside team and residents.“
The Lakeside Hotel and Spa incorporated a Solus Decor Hemi fire bowl with drinks ring into their garden in 2019 but the last year has really enabled them to truly see the benefits due to the current regulations in the hospitality industry. The Hemi is available in three sizes , three fuel options and a range of accessories to make it both customizable and adaptable to a variety of commercial outdoor settings.
We are thrilled to see the Lakeside Hotel and Spa’s guests enjoying this beautiful outdoor space with the benefit of the heat from the Hemi fire pit and long may that continue through Autumn and Winter.
