Ongoing Woodland Grange investments secure 4-star VisitEngland reaccreditationVisitEngland has commended Woodland Grange Conference Centre in Warwickshire for its continued provision of ‘comfortable, well-maintained accommodation, mainly for the commercial market’.
Re-accrediting the residential centre with its four-star rating, awarding an overall guest accommodation score of 77%, VisitEngland used its report to highlight the positive impact to the customer experience of recent investments into décor, including new carpets throughout landings and an extensive refurbishment of the Lawns Restaurant.
‘The restaurant has been fully refurbished and decorated this year and really presents very well indeed, for which the management is to be commended,’ reads the assessor’s report.
Bedrooms are ‘decorated very much with the property’s core business market in mind’, continues the report, and bathrooms are furnished with ‘modern style sanitary wares and fittings’ and a ‘very good range of well-presented towels and toiletries’.
‘Extensive well-tended grounds show care and attention, enhancing overall first impressions to arriving guests. [There’s] ample well-presented parking along with very effective directional signage. Guests also benefit from an excellent range of facilities including coffee lounges, gym and spa, which are sure to be popular with a variety of guests,’ continued the report.
Speaking of the reaccreditation, EEF Venues director David Vaughton said: “We’re thrilled to have retained our four-star VisitEngland Quality in Tourism accreditation. It’s an important benchmark of the excellent quality and service you can expect when you stay at our flagship venue. We specialise in conferencing and meetings and our on-site accommodation has proved a real bonus for groups wishing to take advantage of our location and facilities to host residential conferences, away days and training programmes with an overnight option. When demand allows, we’re also able to encourage a competitive bed and breakfast service for non-corporate guests wishing to escape to the peaceful Warwickshire countryside.”
Woodland Grange’s location, nestled in leafy 16-acre grounds, offers access to Royal Leamington Spa and its railway station in less than 10 minutes, to Birmingham International Airport in 30 minutes and to the major motorway network (M40, M42, M6 and M69).
Businesses from near and far find Woodland Grange a perfect fit for conferences, training courses, team building sessions or corporate events. From the outside it is a building flooded with English country house character, yet on strolling into the spacious, bright reception and neighbouring coffee lounge, you’ll be met by slick architecture, etched glass panelling and bold colours.
Its 26 conference and meeting rooms can be arranged to suit your requirements, with the largest suite accommodating up to 200 people. Within these rooms, air conditioning, soundproofing, natural daylight and blackout facilities meet free WiFi access, convenient laptop connections, in-room computers and audio-visual equipment, with technical support always on hand.
Guests can relish in a restful night’s sleep in the 114 homely ensuite bedrooms on site, some with idyllic countryside views. They come complete with double beds as standard, complimentary WiFi, toiletries, a 26” flat screen television with Freeview, data points, telephone, ironing facilities and coffee/tea provision. Woodland Grange also has a well-equipped fitness room, with sauna and Jacuzzi, for use by any customer.
