Following a landmark 2014, which saw over 20 pubs within Robinsons’ estate receive an investment, the Stockport brewer will continue their commitment to their 300 strong estate by earmarking around 35 sites to receive a refurbishment before the end of 2015.
The Bulls Head’s guest rooms are the first phase in the planned redevelopment with the entire pub soon to receive a complete transformation.
Simon Taylor, Retail Operations Manager for Robinsons said: “The rooms have always been popular, especially with business travellers and families, due to the pub’s proximity to Manchester Airport and the motorway network. With our commitment to invest, we wanted to ensure the room’s reputation for many years to come.”
Robinsons’ award-winning design team chose a contemporary and stylish design for the 21 guest rooms whilst maintaining the pub’s reputation of value for money.
Across the rooms, brand new beds, furnishings and décor has given the accommodation a new lease of life with a premium feel. A palette of subtle grey tones are offset against dark wenge finish furnishings and prominent yellow chairs and pillows.
Each room’s bathroom facilities has also been upgraded with new showers, toilets, vanity units and premium white bevel tiles. Each bathroom features large oval mirrors and feature drop lights in the accent yellow colour.
Elsewhere, the reception area and corridors have been completely transformed with new seating, dark timber check-in desk and, in keeping with the pub’s name, quirky artistic pictures of cows. The change is enormous in comparison to the former look with the bedrooms now the perfect place to unwind after a busy day.
David Harrison, Director of Retail Operations said: “The Bulls Head, as one of our first Managed Houses, is a shining example of the excellence we strive for with all pubs across our estate. The rooms look phenomenal and with their proximity to Manchester’s Airport and our brand new Airport Pub and Grill, there’s never been a better excuse to stay with us. We look forward to the coming months as we turn our attention to the interior of the pub and creating a destination venue for residents of Hale Barns and the surrounding areas.”
