Aubrey Park Hotel, the 4 star and rosette-awarded independent hotel has opened the doors to ‘The Oak Suite’ their brand new conference and events venue.
Tara Brady, Sales Manager at Aubrey Park Hotel is happy to see the new venue complete, as she explains, ‘We’re so excited to be opening ‘The Oak Suite’, which can host up to 200 delegates, this is a great development for our hotel. Its multi-purpose design is flexible enough to host all manner of events such as seminars, large business meetings and staff training days to name just a few’, Tara Brady continues, ‘…it contains state of the art facilities that rival any venue out there!’
The range of facilities include a built-in PA system, wireless LCD projector, skyline views, feature lighting, 3m built-in screen, private bar plus loads more features. ‘The Oak Suite’ also features a brand new, fully landscaped outdoor terrace for a spot of alfresco dining and plenty of seating: perfect for those warmer seasons. The design of the new venue has drawn on the history of the hotel’s original architecture dating back over 150 years, when the house was owned by the Dunn family: founders of the renowned hat-makers.
As they say ‘out with the old, and in with the new’ Aubrey Park Hotel have said goodbye to their beloved marquee that has been the location for 100s of weddings, parties and events for 13 years. As David Timmis, the Managing Director explains that ‘…The marquee holds memories for so many people within the local and wider community and it is very sad to see it leave us after being with us all these years: yet we’re thrilled to see the positive impact ‘The Oak Suite’ has made on the hotel already.’
The new development will enhance the hotel’s facilities and complement the hotel’s existing 137 bedrooms, Brasserie restaurant and Bar & Lounge as well as its existing meeting rooms. These include the recently refurbished ‘Garden Room’ with its own external terrace which has long been a popular facility.
‘The Oak Suite’ will increase the hotel’s ability to serve its local community with better facilities for weddings and other celebrations. It also offers improved employment prospects for local residents and trading prospects for local suppliers of goods and services.
As well as preserving and securing the beautiful Grade II listed original building, Aubrey Park will open up the once hidden Iron Age Fort to the public, highlighting a historic monument and conserving Redbourn’s heritage.
‘We are very happy to see the project delivered on time ’, David Timmis continues, ‘…as the timescale was especially tight. We had two weddings and an important international conference in the first week of the new venue opening. I truly appreciate the continual hard work from all of my team, making sure that the opening of our new venue has been successful’.
