“This project involved a full refurbishment of a Grade II listed building…This was converted into a hotel complete with 83 on suite bedrooms, aย  bar, a restaurant, fitness suite, coffee house, reception and function room.”

Every Hotel Indigo is designed with the surrounding area in mind and to reflect its character. Inspiration for this project was drawn from 3 different themes; the cathedral, the university buildings in Durham and the scientific research carried out at the university.ย IMG_3928 webWith these three themes in mind, it was a priority to preserve and enhance the original features of the building.

BCFA members Jeffrey Carr were pleased to have supplied and manufactured the curtains, blinds, bed-runners and cushions in all the bedrooms and public areas of this hotel.

“It was particularly satisfying to be part of such a prestigious project in our local region.”
