On Monday 2 March we will begin some maintenance work on the exterior of the hotel building. The project will involve replacing the infill to the windows by removing the current aluminium panels, filling the cavity with new insulation and applying a new aluminium panel on top.
This work will be carried out between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday for approximately three weeks.
The work does not relate to the fire safety of the hotel building. The hotel building has always been safe to operate and continues to be, irrespective of this project. Following the Grenfell Tower fire, Whitbread immediately and voluntarily took the decision to have its hotels assessed by independent fire safety experts and was assured that they are all entirely and unequivocally safe to operate.
The hotel will continue to be in use during this project. We have advised our contractors that residents live in close proximity to the hotel, and noise needs to be kept to a minimum.
