Wyboston Lakes Resort announces partnership with Paddy & Scotts
Wyboston Lakes Resort announces partnership with Paddy & Scott's.

Leading hospitality, leisure and conference venue Wyboston Lakes Resort is announcing a five-year contract with coffee supplier Paddy & Scott’s to provide an award winning craft coffee experience across its spa, restaurants, events spaces and bedrooms.

As part of the multi-year agreement to provide all coffee, machinery and branding, Paddy & Scott’s have been commissioned to design and build a conference coffee house, or fuelling station, as part of the refurbishment project at the newly renamed Woodlands Event Centre and at various other coffee points across the Resort.

An initial capital investment of £150k in the refuelling station, machines and other fixtures and fittings is being financed by Wyboston Lakes Resort, ensuring delegates will be fully energised throughout the day. In addition to serving high street, craft quality coffee, the fuelling station will offer a wide range of crafted drinks and snacks, all included in the daily delegate rate.

The partnership will also provide ongoing operational support and specialist training to Wyboston Lakes Resort team members, enabling them to become fully SCA Barista certified, engage with the coffee farm in Kenya and enjoy barista competitions to drive standards

This facility is set to open in early September 2018 at the same time as the newly created 300 capacity Rosewood Suite at The Woodlands Event Centre.

Commenting on the announcement, Steve Jones, Operations Director at Wyboston Lakes Resort, says:

“Paddy & Scott’s ethical approach to business, such as having their own coffee farm in the shade of the eastern side of Mount Kenya in northern Nairobi, allows them to support their local community and aligns perfectly with our own values as a proudly independent venue that provides great value, service and hospitality to our clients. We don’t just pay lip service to corporate social responsibilities, but we live and breathe these throughout all aspects of our business”

Jon Reed, Brand Director at Paddy & Scott’s had this to say “So much can be achieved from a humble cup of coffee and we’re incredibly proud that Wyboston Lakes shares our vision to fuel ambition for its guests and delegates. It’s great to have a partnership that is focused on raising the bar and rewriting the rule book when it comes to conference coffee!”

This latest announcement comes at an exciting time for Wyboston Lakes Resort, with work underway on the first phase of a complete refurbishment of its conference and meetings spaces. Over £3m of investment will add inspirational meeting areas designed with creative flare and equipped with top of the range technology; £0.5m is being invested specifically in the IT network.

The Rosewood Suite at The Woodlands Event Centre will be capable of hosting over 300 delegates and comes fully equipped with cutting-edge technology. Training suites will benefit from a comprehensive redesign, providing greater inspiration and innovation for conference guests.

The Woodlands Event Centre & The Willows Training Centre
Wyboston Lakes Resort is to rename its main venues as The Woodlands Event Centre and The Willows Training Centre.

The Woodlands Event Centre is currently known as the Wyboston Lakes Executive Centre and The Willows Training Centre is the Wyboston Lakes Training Centre. Both new names will be supported by the overall Wyboston Lakes Resort brand.

The changes will take place in September when the first phase of a £3m investment in a major transformation of The Woodlands Event Centre is due for completion.

All rooms at The Woodlands Event Centre will be re-configured and renamed as part of this redevelopment. The theme of natural wood will run strongly throughout the whole of the building. There will be a new Italian inspired Olive Restaurant along with Cedar Courtyard and Bar and the meeting rooms will all be named after differing woods. The newly created Rosewood Suite will be capable of accommodating over 300 delegates. One of the other new features will be the Yew technology theatre which will benefit from the latest in in-room tech and provide tiered seating to allow presenters to interact with their audience.

Louisa Watson, Director of Marketing at Wyboston Lakes Resort explains: “Re-naming both venues will create a separate distinctive identity for each and enable us to position each venue in its relevant market more effectively. We will continue to use the Wyboston Lakes Resort in all marketing and promotional activities as our brand name is well known and a major asset, particularly in the meeting and events industry.”
