A touch of Elan

Crown Sports Lockers outfitted the new Elan Spa at Mallory Court Hotel
Elan Spa at Mallory Court Hotel is the first standalone facility of its kind in the eight-strong Eden Hotel Collection - and its flagship property.

Erected next to the charming country hotel destination in 12 acres of rolling Warwickshire countryside, the £7m Orchard House project has surely fashioned one of the finest leisure retreats in Britain.

Already awarded a five bubbles ‘Fantastic’ spa status for 2017 by The Good Spa Guide, Elan Spa boasts a host of beautiful features, including: a dazzling 10m wallow pool, steam, aroma sauna, Rasul mud bath, gym, juice bar, studio, spa lounge, seven treatment rooms, manicure/pedicure bar and restaurant. Outside, a drench shower, feature fire and SAUNAshell, a world first, complete the provision.

Attention to detail and standards of craftsmanship throughout are immaculate. Osborne & Little wallpapers grace the interiors with signature patterns, while owner Sir Peter Rigby and his wife have selected the signature wall art.

Members and guests are truly spoilt for choice at Mallory Court, with its high end leisure facilities and fine dining offering. Guests can enjoy weekend spa breaks in any of Orchard House’s 12 luxury boutique bedrooms, and take in a wealth of different treatments using exclusive products from ILA, ESPA and ORLY.

Such a destination gem demanded high-calibre specifications throughout and Spa Creators project director Alistair Johnson, who masterminded the Elan facility from concept to detailed design, had no hesitation in specifying Crown Sports Lockers for furnishing the expansive changing areas, treatment rooms and ancillary work.

"The guest journey at Orchard House is exceptional,” says Jones, “From checking in at reception and relaxing in Elan Spa to enjoying a meal in the brasserie and sleeping over in the sumptuously decorated rooms."

Jones adds: "Luxury boutique hotels are our speciality and we ensure a very hands-on build process, working closely with the owner/operator throughout the project and afterwards."

The changing rooms are furnished with two-tier clothes lockers finished in Egger driftwood laminate, with upholstered integrated seating and shoe storage below, and wet and dry vanity units with Corian tops and storage cupboards.

"Melamines and laminates have upped their game. They are just as durable as veneer, need no polishing and have consistency of finish." says Jones.

Keyless RFID locking using silicon wristband operation is also proving popular with management, members and guests.

"The bands are easy to use and there are not too many lockers to forget which one is yours" he adds.

Treatment room furniture is also distinctively finished in driftwood laminate, with Corian worktops, storage for pullout therapist trolleys and concealed towel heaters.

The manicure/pedicure bar features a Corian top with butler sink, while the lobby area features a linen store and drop units. Crown also supplied a fridge unit with Corian top and integrated storage for the air conditioned gym.

With an eye on ‘back of house’ welfare, Jones specified holdall lockers for the staff room upstairs, all fitted with cam locks.

Sam Palmer, Crown’s dedicated project manager for the Orchard House fit-out, says: "This was a challenging yet fulfilling project with tight lead times but we delivered on time and to budget."
