Hilton Coventry Announces $1 Million Refurbishment And The Opening Of Its New Restaurant, The Larder
October 02, 2014
COVENTRY, UK - Hilton Coventry has undergone a $1 million investment for an extensive refurbishment of the lobby and restaurant, which allowed the development of a new branded restaurant, The Larder, giving a British post-war feel. After full remodelling of the lobby, the place was converted into a modern and relaxing lounge and bar where guests can utilise the working space or enjoy a relaxing coffee with complimentary
The Larder not only has a modern design, but it also accommodates private dining space, making this ideal for family or business occasions. The concept boasts the recent rediscovery in the trend of eating local, classic British cuisine, blending contemporary twist that echoes its homespun charm. The spatial design is intended to evoke natural, homely charm with the enhancement of the retro styling of a country house pantry. Armchairs and wooden floors give a warm, smart feel. The Larder offers friendly and attentive service with a vibrant, buzzing atmosphere.
"Embarking on the project over a year ago, I never imagined the impact we were going to be able to achieve with the investment," said Carl Littlewood, general manager, Hilton Coventry. "The flexibility we now have with the space enhances our offering to the large events business, yet creates areas of intimacy for smaller parties. Post refurbishment, seeing the regular customer faces as they walk into the building has certainly been one of the highlights."
The new restaurant was designed with bringing more space in mind and now The Larder offers greater flexibility for larger events and exhibitions, whilst also creating a fresh contemporary area. Hilton Coventry tracked the refurbishment on its social media channels including Facebook and Twitter to show the vast improvements to start the next chapter for the hotel. The idea to capture the story via social media has given a new lease of life to Hilton Coventry that will continue to develop and share the story of this successful refurbishment.
