A sample room was refurbished first so the client could get a real tactile 'feel' for the space, design, specifications and colour ways. 

There are six phases within the programme of refurbishment running into September 2014 taking into account 114 bedrooms in total. 

Through McCarthys design process the new  bathrooms have a luxurious feel to them with imported Italian floor and wall tiling throughout.
All fixtures and fittings have been concealed to create neat and clean lines. The toilet and wash hand basins are suspended to allow for easy cleaning.
