Hensol Castle is a unique historical venue set in the stunning South Wales countryside and part of the Leekes Retail and Leisure Group. The castle dates to the early 1400s and is a Grade I Listed building. It features towering turrets, sweeping staircases and gothic features – picture-perfect from every angle. No wonder it’s such a popular place to host weddings and events.
Over the summer of 2021, the Sleepeezee Hospitality team had the opportunity to visit Hensol Castle when we delivered and installed our premium Hospitality beds in 23 rooms.
The team at Leekes chose the Sleepeezee Hotel Classic 1000 mattress and deep sprung edge bases. With a woven damask cover and hand-woven tufted finish, the Hotel Classic 1000 provides the perfect balance of comfort and durability. Double-sided to last longer, it offers a unique blend of natural wool, sumptuous rebound cotton and comfort fibres. The bases were also upholstered in Contract Weave Pewter Grey fabric for a complementary finish. This was a smooth install in the most beautiful setting – a fantastic reminder of why we love being in the business of beds.
‘We’ve used Sleepeezee for many years now, and they have been fantastic to work with,’ said Joanna Mounty, Group Visual Merchandiser at Leekes. ‘They completely understood what we were looking for, and the team were really friendly. Andrew Thorpe [Divisional Contracts and Export Director] was straightforward with communications and provided a warm and professional service.’
Unfortunately, several pandemic lockdowns meant the delivery to Hensol Castle had to be delayed on more than one occasion. ‘Despite this, the team were very understanding and made sure that they would be able to deliver as soon as we were ready,’ said Joanna. And once everything had been installed, the Leekes team were more than happy with the result – and so were their guests.
‘The mattresses themselves are of a lovely quality,’ said Joanna. ‘We often find guests are talking or asking about the beds because they’ve slept so well. The selection of mattresses on offer means that you have a variety of options depending on what you’re looking for. We’d be happy to work with Sleepeezee in future.’
