Hotel Awarded Gold IIP
Family-run Midlands hotel group strikes Gold to join elite UK club

A FAMILY-run hotel group in the Midlands has joined an elite club of employers across the country after being awarded the coveted Investors in People Gold status across its two establishments.

Lea Marston Hotel in North Warwickshire and the Abbey Hotel in Redditch have both been upgraded to the prestigious Gold award, making them the only hotels in Warwickshire and Worcestershire with the top accreditation.

Across the UK they join an elite list of hotels to have met the stringent criteria required of the Gold standard
in people management.

The Lea Marston and Abbey hotels met 169 of the Investors in People evidence requirements, which raised them from Bronze straight to Gold.

Across the two hotels, 300 members of staff manage more than 200 rooms, as well as conference and banqueting facilities, restaurants, health spas and a golf course.

Lea Marston and Abbey Hotel managing director, Tom Kirkham, said: “This is such a coveted award and shows just how hard we work to create a happy working environment. Our people are at the heart of our organisation and satisfied employees also translates into satisfied customers. We are like one big family.

“It’s been a busy few years for the hotels, with lots of investment and growth, and our team members have played a key role in that success. Over the next 18 months we will be working towards maintaining Gold status and even making further improvements where possible.”

As well as meeting all the general requirements set out as part of the Investors in People Standard, the hotels have been focusing on rolling out the employee branding that runs alongside the recent re-branding of the group. This included involving staff to create the strap line ‘delivering a warm welcome’ and the evolving the
hotels’ vision and mission.

As part of the accreditation, an Investors in People spokesperson said: “The standard is a very challenging one to meet and is increasingly seen as a measure of a quality employer. Your success not only reflects your own commitment, but is also an acknowledgement of the effort of everyone who works for the organisation. I would like to congratulate you and your team on this excellent achievement.”

Investors in People has set the standard for better people management since 1991. The internationally recognised accreditation defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable

The Investors in People Standard is underpinned by a rigorous assessment methodology and a framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry.
£2million pound investment
Discover a warm welcome at family-run hotel’s 30 new bedrooms

A family-owned hotel situated in the heart of the Midlands has undergone a major expansion with the addition of 30 new bedrooms and luxury suites, representing a significant investment of almost £2million in the local economy.

Set in 75 acres of North Warwickshire countryside, the award-winning Lea Marston Hotel now boasts an impressive 118 luxury ensuite rooms, as well as extensive wedding, spa, conferencing and event facilities.

The additional superior, executive and luxury suites have been provided in a brand new extension to the hotel, spanning two floors and overlooking the golf course.

All 30 air-conditioned rooms have been styled by local designer Ilze Reinke, based in No Mans Heath, and feature warm contemporary interiors, cutting edge technology and the little luxuries
that are in keeping with Lea Marston Hotel’s ethos of providing a warm welcome.

As well as the new build, the hotel has been given a brand new look with extensive refurbishment throughout. An additional 30 members of staff have been taken on to help keep day-to-day operations running smoothly as the business goes through this latest phase of

The new look and new rooms were unveiled at a special launch party last week attended by 100 guests and visitors, including suppliers, corporate customers and the hotel’s long-standing health
club members.

Lea Marston Hotel sales and marketing director, Phillip Allsopp, said: “As a family-run hotel group, we are always looking to grow and expand our offering in order to maintain our reputation as one of the best independent hotels in the Midlands.

“With so much to offer here at Lea Marston Hotel and in the wider surrounding area, demand is always high and the new rooms represent one of our most significant investments to date.
Although the additional facilities have only been available for a few weeks, we have already had nights where we have been sold-out across the hotel, which is fantastic news for the area.

“This is an exciting time for us as we are also launching a new brand which further complements our company vision, mission and values of promoting our personality and warmth as a leading family business at the heart of the community.

“I would like to thank all the suppliers and staff involved in the new bedroom block, but most of all our thanks goes to the wonderful team of people here at Lea Marston who have worked so hard to get things ready in time for our opening. We look forward to welcoming many more guests to stay at Lea Marston Hotel in the future.”
