"We have previously worked with Ventrolla and were really pleased with the results, so it was an easy decision to appoint them again. This was definitely a bigger project but, like before, the work was carried out efficiently and to a high standard."
Ventrolla East Anglia helps transform a period Guest House into an Eco Hotel!
A Georgian guest house dating back to the 1800s has been transformed into a modern eco hotel following a four week restoration project.
The Annesley House Hotel in Norwich has had over 20 original windows renovated by Ventrolla East Anglia.
A pair of French doors, opening out onto the hotel’s award winning gardens, were also refurbished as part of the restoration and are in keeping with the hotels new green policy. David Reynolds, the owner of Annesley House, appointed Ventrolla to help restore the building and improve its sound insulation and draught proofing.
David said: “This work has been a long time coming and having introduced a green policy, the renovation of the windows is another step towards developing our environmentally friendly approach to running the hotel. We have previously worked with Ventrolla and were really pleased with the results, so it was an easy decision to appoint them again. This was definitely a bigger project but, like before, the work was carried out efficiently and to a high standard which allowed me to keep the hotel open for the duration of the project.”
The renovation process involved installing Ventrolla’s unique Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) in the gap surrounding the window sashes, which improves performance and eliminates draughts. It also makes the windows much more energy efficient.
Annesley House is located in a conservation area, close to the Norfolk Broads, Britain’s largest protected wetland and third largest inland waterway with the status of a National Park.
David and his wife Jill have been running the hotel for over 25 years after buying it as their first joint venture back in September 1985. The renovation works also included a makeover of the interiors, with new pictures and lighting in the guest rooms and corridors. Ventrolla offers a bespoke renovation service for timber sliding sash and casement windows as well as timber doors.
The company’s central office is in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, with regional Ventrolla offices located throughout the UK and Ireland.
