Following a fantastic 2012, The Lensbury will kick off 2013 with a £1.2 million investment in The Thames View Suite, the property’s main function room.
Redevelopment commences 28th December 2012 when The Thames View Suite will be completely redesigned. The plan is for a multi-purpose space that can accommodate meetings and conferences as well as private dinners, parties and weddings for up to 260 people. The work will include the removal of some pillars, new windows throughout a new bar and new audio visual systems. The décor is set to be bright with natural colours to go with any event and all the air conditioning and heating systems will be replaced with the latest ergonomic equipment to improve our sustainability.
As well as the internal refurbishments, new decking and a landscaped pond area are planned for the exterior with pathways, seating, new established trees, wild gardens, enhancing lighting and water features. £60k is being invested in this area which will create a spectacular view from the Thames View Suite and will provide a unique photo shoot location for brides.
By increasing capacity to 260 banqueting style this will make The Lensbury the largest residential special event resort in the Richmond area.
17 bedrooms are being refurbished from February to further enhance the £1.2 million invested in Executive Bedrooms in the last 12 months.
The Lensbury invests in Rugby.
A brand new premiership standard rugby pitch is being prepared this spring and should be ready for use in September 2013 at the latest depending the weather and growth. Advice was received from regular club guests the England Sevens Team.
Several companies followed the Irish Olympic Team’s example and have chosen The Lensbury for teambuilding events in 2013. Raft-building has proved the most popular. Watersports Centre Manager, Mark Hughes said “To witness nervous delegates become a team on the river and return to their meeting with big smiles, makes our working day a real pleasure”. To make sure that your team has a great London Teambuilding experience
GM Ivor Turner said, “This is the result of extensive research and is an answer to our guests and member’s needs. The Lensbury strives to be a unique hospitality location where sport, leisure and business visitors can relax and enjoy a home from home in the company of sporting giants”
