Case Studies

Playing to your strengths

Playing to your strengths

Knowing that Armada has been doing business with hotels for over 40 years, Nigel, a long established client, asked if he might ‘pick our brains’. He wanted an independent overview of his operation and ideas for change if we thought they were needed.

Our suggestion was that he became more family orientated with specific investment being made to attract children.

Nigel took our suggestions on board and after a few building alterations and marketing changes he was soon attracting a younger crowd.

We financed both indoor and outdoor play facilities for the hotel and funded the latest listening and security systems in order that parents could enjoy some down time.

With a 20% increase in booking in the first year the investment is more than paying for itself. As we pointed out to Nigel, if he concentrates his efforts in giving the children a good time he will naturally build his future customer base and loyalty.

In 2016 the impact of the staycation has been a lifeline for many in the tourism and hospitality industries. Now that vast numbers of holidaymakers have found the hidden gems around our coasts and enjoyed the hassle-free experience of remaining in the UK, we can expect an upturn in the fortunes of the holiday market for many years to come.

Colin and Tanya, long-established clients of Armada, have taken a long look at their previous offering and asked themselves “what will our customers be wanting tomorrow?”

Answer: with their size hotel they want to add indoor and outdoor children’s  play equipment, a new telecoms system to incorporate a listening and monitoring facility and gym equipment for the adults (spinning bikes, rowing machines and treadmills).

Having already secured Armada’s support to finance all these assets, Colin is working hard to have the changes in place for his Christmas trading.

Furnishing you with the service you deserve

Furnishing you with the service you deserve

Existing clients in the Cotswolds bought a beautiful stone manor house and got planning permission to turn it into a chic 10 bedroom country house hotel.

The owners requested funding for the fitting out of all the bedrooms and the public areas.

All the furniture, carpeting and soft furnishing for the bedrooms needed funding, together with the furniture for the dining room, the bar and the lounges.

It was essential for the clients and for Armada that we could sit down and discuss the requirements and how best to structure a contract that was beneficial for both parties.

At Armada we value the chance to understand our clients and their needs – that way we can give better and individualistic service.

Attention to detail

Attention to detail

Cerys and her fiancé had been looking forward to planning their wedding next Easter. A major consideration was finding a suitable venue for the reception and an essential for Cerys was that the grounds of the hotel would be perfect for her wedding photos.

The moment Cerys and Edward saw Court Colman Manor Hotel, in the Vale of Glamorgan, their search ended. They are both loving the attention received from the hotel’s wedding planner and they are totally relaxed knowing that all the details are being taken care of.

Sanjeev Bhagotra and his staff know how important it is to cover all the details of running an hotel and making their guests relaxed.

For the same reason Sanjeev loves his relationship with Armada and uses asset finance to acquire his catering equipment, furniture and other assets the hotel needs.

“I am delighted with the speed and simplicity of Armada. They understand our business and our needs.”

Dorchester, the beautiful county town of Dorset, is famous for the assizes held by Judge Jeffreys aka The Hanging Judge, who sent many a supporter of the Duke of Monmouth to the gallows. On a happier note, Dorchester is the site of the historic Kings Arms Hotel - Best Western, that has been giving hospitality and comfort to travellers and holiday makers since 1724. The hotel is mentioned in Thomas Hardy's The Mayor of Casterbridge.

In order to maintain the high level of comfort expected of a Best Western hotel, owners, Simon & Anecia Pickup know they can depend on the speedy support of Armada Asset Finance to fund all the hotel's equipment and furnishings.

5-Star Service

5-Star Service

The Old House @ Home, near Castle Combe in Wiltshire is run by the hard-working and forward-thinking Warburton family.

When, in early 2009, Armada was approached by the family to support the development of six bedrooms in the garden of this charming old stone coaching inn, we were delighted to fund the entire fitting out of the new accommodation, helping to give them the 5-star accreditation they deserve.

The Warburtons appreciated the experience and enthusiasm that Armada brings to the relationship. In fact, so strong has been the relationship and trust between the Warburtons and Armada that each year they look to us to fund their asset purchases for The Old House @ Home, The Northey @ Box and the Crown @ Dyrham.
