Roman supply Hilton Garden Inn, Snowdonia

The Hilton Garden Inn brand continues to build on its reputation for creating beautiful hotels in beautiful locations. Having successfully completed the Faroe Islands Garden Inn, Roman were chosen by HH Smith to furnish the 108 bathrooms in Snowdonia. The hotel is set in the stunning Conwy Valley in North Wales within the Adventure Parc Snowdonia, surrounded by hills next to Europe’s largest inland surf lagoon and a magnet for water-sports enthusiasts.

Roman’s 400,000 square foot manufacturing facility is situated in County Durham. The leading manufacturer has an extensive team of in-house designers and all of Roman’s products are designed and made in Britain. Working with the contractor from the outset, it was an ambitious build programme due to the pandemic but despite this, regular communication and project planning meant Roman’s elements of the project were delivered on time and a true working collaboration was formed with HH Smith.

The hotel benefits from Hilton’s latest Garden Inn Design which features an open bathroom offering a beautiful, contemporary, spacious bathroom and guest room experience. The Roman Stone vanity units offer seamless joints using a non-porous, stain resistant easy clean solid surface material. To compliment the materials used on the vanity unit, matching door thresholds were designed and manufactured to be sited at the bottom of the shower door along with cistern lids. All Roman solid surface materials are proven and tested for hotel environments.

Hilton Garden Inn bathrooms feature a separate toilet and shower enclosure. The shower enclosure benefits from a large frosted window adding to the feeling of space. Roman manufactured the toilet door, shower door and side window using frosted glass and black hardware. To compliment the black hardware and to give the impression of a framed door and window, a black border was printed onto the glass. The innovative print technique used actually infuses the print into the glass meaning that there’s a layer of glass over the print. Not only does this provide added protection to the border, it also reduces the time housekeeping require to clean and maintain the room.

All products supplied are offered with an industry leading service backed lifetime guarantee supported by Roman’s fifty plus team of field engineers. Key to Roman’s specification by Hilton for this brand and others are their outstanding eco-credentials and accreditations. HH Smith has delivered a wonderful hotel and Roman were delighted to be the chosen manufacturer and supplier of the bathrooms which are a key element of the Hilton Garden Inn design. The hotel itself is an outstanding piece of architecture and will no doubt benefit from the renewed interest in UK tourism and the abundance of tourist destinations around this beautiful location.

Michael Smith, Contracts Manager at HH Smith, commented: “HH Smith & Sons and Roman Showers worked very closely to deliver this brilliant design and finish. Continuous communication was kept via telecom and teams meetings to make sure everything was coordinated and sign off correctly. Delivery dates and material procurement were key due to the pandemic so we made sure there was a clear design approval dates, material procurement dates and finally delivery dates. With this all agreed this made the installation process a lot easier and didn’t cause any delay to our programme. If we ever come across a similar project in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to make contact with Roman again and request to use their services again.”
