Greyfriars Hotel

GreyFriars Hotel of grand luxe

Client:    OMC Investments Limited

Built in the late 18th century on the site of a Franciscan Monastery, GreyFriars was an impressive family home with a fine Georgian façade and formal gardens.  Over the generations it has also served as a nunnery and latterly a college. Now this fine building is being reborn as a luxury hotel and restaurant.  Meticulous attention to detail has been dedicated to repair the many superb period features in the building and to restore it to its former grandeur.  An essential issue to resolve was the problem of old windows and glazing, not only causing heat loss and draughts, but admitting the ingress and egress of noise. Selectaglaze fitted over a hundred units using nine different systems, tailoring them specifically to the project’s needs. Some of the windows were curved which needed to be carefully designed and some treated to allow access to beautiful original stained glass for cleaning and maintenance.
