Leading bed manufacturer Hypnos is continuing to boom internationally, with its latest project at The Waterfront Hotel in the Falkland Islands deemed a success.
Located in the capital, Stanley, The Waterfront Hotel originally opened in 2008 with eight bedrooms and last year underwent a full refurbishment to transform it into a ‘luxury boutique’, with Hypnos beds installed throughout.
The process involved upgrading its bedroom offering to two contemporary designed junior suites and four luxury rooms, reducing the number of rooms available to six.
Hypnos’ specialist contract hospitality team worked closely with the hotel to provide bespoke beds that suited the new vision and needs of the hotel and its guests. With two less bedrooms, due to the introduction of the two suites, the new rooms needed versatile sleeping solutions that provided optimum comfort and luxury for guests, ensuring no reduction in customer capacity or income.
Hypnos’ project management team carried out a full consultation, taking into account all design details required, preferred comfort level, size and expected guest usage for each of the rooms. Advice and guidance was offered on every aspect of bed specification to ensure the right solution was created to the hotel’s budget.
Eleven Firenze kingsize zip and link ‘boxtop’ mattresses were specified, which would allow the rooms to be quickly adjusted to cater for single, double or twin occupancy.
Combining a comfortable pocket sprung core with a twin-zip and removable mattress topper, the Firenze mattress provides excellent body support for guests, so they can enjoy an incredibly comfortable night’s sleep. It also offers a practical solution for housekeeping, as the zip feature allows both the topper and mattress to be rotated and turned with ease.
Providing durable, firm support to the mattress, six SlimBase divans were also specified, along with 11 Eleanor headboards for added style, and five king mattress toppers for optional support when the beds are adjoined as a double.
Owner of The Waterfront Hotel, Alex Olmedo, comments: “When I was doing the interior design for the hotel I knew I needed to have luxurious, comfortable beds. I’d read that Firmdale hotels and Premier Inn both use Hypnos beds so when I heard Hypnos would be exhibiting at the Sleep Event I took the opportunity to go and find out about them.
“The beds looked and felt exactly as I had imagined and Hypnos’ slogan really fitted the bill for what I wanted when it came to marketing the hotel bedrooms.”
British luxury bed manufacturer Hypnos continues to uphold its reputation for delivering supremely comfortable beds to some of the best homes, hotels, spas and serviced apartments in the world. Holding a Royal Warrant, granted by HRH Queen Elizabeth II, proves further testament to the high quality British craftsmanship on which the company has prided itself for more than 100 years.
