STEAM ROOMS CASE STUDY Devon Hotel Gets The Full Wellness Makeover

The luxurious family-owned Thurlestone Hotel near Kingsbridge in Devon is used to accolades having won Gold in Visit Britain’s Large Hotel of the Year Awards for Excellence 2010 but they were not prepared for the deluge of compliments that followed the completion of a stunning Wellness suite in July. The hotel’s original indoor pool, with a small acrylic spa and steam room was dated and in need of complete refurbishment. The hotel employed Torquay-based, Harris Pools & Leisure who turned to the services of Certikin for the advice, design a nd supply of a large amount of equipment.

The whole project took six months to complete during which the hotel remained open so any disturbance to the guests had to be kept to an absolute minimum. Mike Harris, MD of Harris Pools said: “I think the end result exceeded everyone’s expectations. We have been using Certikin equipment since 1983 and I am confident in saying that we could not have completed this

project without the exceptional support and service we received from Certikin, especially Steve Nelson (Certikin Commercial Manager). His input on the equipment’s specification and design was vital, and he was always able to advise and help when unforeseen problems cropped up.” With glowing comments from guests such as ‘Wow, this is exceptional and far exceeds our expectations!’ and ‘Every detail has been thought of with really tasteful design and amazing facilities’, the hotel’s owners were also delighted with Hotel Director, Julie Baugh saying: “It’s lovely to get such positive feedback from guests and club members. People

have sophisticated expectations now in terms of levels of luxury, facilities and treatments. We are pleased to have been able to meet them.”
