When the Coppid Beech Hotel in Bracknell wanted to upgrade their wellness centre they turned to Gerflor to supply the decorative and hardwearing flooring solution that would lift the centre to the next level. As part of a new refurbishment they chose Gerflor’s Creation 55 LVT for the gym, the spin room and the reception area/corridors. Sarah Hand, Wellness Manager, Coppid Beech Hotel commented. “Our members and guests absolutely love the new floor. The fact that it went down so quickly, considering the state of the existing floor was a real boon in getting the wellness centre open again for business.” Sarah Hand ended by saying, “I would definitely recommend Gerflor’s Creation 55 LVT range as it has delivered on quality, price and performance. The new look it has created now provides a much-more welcoming environment that will help us to boost new membership”.
