We were approached by the owners of the Marsham Court Hotel as they were looking to fit a new platform lift as part of extensive refurbishment works around the hotel. The Marsham Court Hotel is located on Bournemouth's East Cliff opposite the Russell Cotes Museum. The Marsham Court has been owned and run by the same family since 1987, and we worked with current directors Rosie, James and Russell to fulfil this project. The Marsham Court offers a great location within Bournemouth with short walks to the beach and tot he town centre with amenities close by. The hotel has two restaurants, offers events space for weddings and. conferences and also has an outdoor heated swimming pool. Its location also benefits from sea views from Hengistbury Head in the East to the Isle of Purbeck in the West.
The Marsham Court went under extensive refurbishment during the pandemic. As part of the works Rosie, James and Russell were looking to make the hotel more accessible. The best solution to allow easy access for wheelchair users was to include a platform lift at the main entrance of the hotel. This would provide less able bodied guests the shortest distance from parking to reception and also offer a great access solution for extra visitors who would make use of the hotel during the busy summer months. The platform lift would have to be extremely reliable with consistent use everyday. The lift travels around 1500mm between the two levels and features an inbuilt ramp on the platform so there is no need for a pit. In addition the lift was manufactured from brushed stainless steel to handle the harsh environment of the coastal location. It was then finished with frameless glass panels and powder-coated in RAL 5023 - Distant Blue.
The Marsham Court Hotel is a great local family run business and we had great pleasure working with them on this project.
