The property is undergoing a complete refurbishment, which will be done in three phases. CLC Group was contracted for the first phase of the refurbishment. This part of the upgrade is due for completion by the end of November.
The design brief tasked the designers to create guestrooms that have a luxury feel, but are also practical. Wyboston Lakes also teamed with Crave, provider of tablet and app solutions to the hospitality industry. Upon completion, each new bedroom will have a tablet with exclusive software for Wyboston Lakes.
There are also plans to turn at least 40 of the guestrooms into Executive Suites. Sample rooms will be completed by autumn 2015 with plans to begin the refurbishment in January 2016. Similarly, there are plans to upgrade the external cladding on the main building.
As an eco-friendly property, Wyboston Lakes will be recycling a lot of the furnishings to other venues. It also donated all old soft furnishings to Emmaus Cambridge charity.
