Swift Signs of Weymouth completes all signage for the newly renovated and spectacular Riviera Hotel which is now OPEN.
The Saudi based Dhiafah Group, owners of the Riviera Hotel, Bowleaze Cove, Weymouth believes in providing high quality at all times, from the standard of the fixtures and fittings down to the welcome that every guest enjoys when arriving at the Riviera Hotel.
It was very important that local suppliers were selected to provide services to the hotel and when it came to providing quality signage there was really only one local company qualified for the job – Swift Signs of Weymouth.
Kevin Bungay, General Manager of the Riviera Hotel said “The Riviera Hotel covers a wide area including extensive gardens, car parks, swimming pools and borders the Jurassic Coast Path, therefore it was essential that the signage was crisp, clear and easy to navigate for every guest. Signage at the hotel covered everything from the bespoke room numbers, all important yet unsung health and safety signs, to the instantly recognisable, electric blue neon “Riviera Hotel” sign. This iconic beacon for the grade II listed building has now been lovingly restored to its former glory. New signage was required in every area of the hotel and the professional approach provided by Karl and his team at Swift Signs made the process easy”
All 98 bedrooms at the Riviera hotel have been completely renovated and refurbished with new ensuite bathrooms, flat screen TVs, handpainted canvases and exclusive furnishings in stylish surroundings. The refurbished Leisure Suite has a 14 metre indoor swimming pool and the very popular large heated outside pool overlooking Weymouth Bay. The diversity of the hotel provided a challenge in terms of materials and printing techniques.
Karl Lantree, Owner of Swift Signs said “ It has been an interesting challenge for us due to the strong art deco style of the building, its age and proximity to the salt air environment. We overcame this by using high quality, durable plastics and modern composites. All printed, painted or computer cut to create a clean, contemporary theme which works in harmony with the reborn, art deco hotel. Here at Swift Signs our strengths go far beyond just making and installing signs. Our customers tap into the experience we’ve amassed over our 28 years of trading and are assured of the high level of support and service we pride ourselves on.”
