This family owned Victorian hotel has undergone a major transformation over the past decade to bring the hotel into the 21st century and meet the continued demands and expectations of their customers. The hotel has been designed throughout to reflect luxury and comfort and appeals to a wide range of clientele.
The owners desire to provide their customers with the best experience possible realised that this would involve investing in technology and control systems to maximise functionality without compromising the look and feel of the hotel.
The Glen Rosa suite is a prime example of the luxury and opulence this hotel has to offer. The Glen Rosa suite was formed from an existing 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The Glen Rosa suite comprises of a 35sqm Master bedroom, 20.5 sqm Lounge, 12.5sqm Bathroom and hallway. The suite has been decorated throughout to reflect luxury and tranquillity this is enhanced with the large bay windows providing panoramic views of the Ayrshire coastline and the mountainous ranges of Arran.
The owners desire to provide functionality and access to media systems throughout this suite without compromising design required careful planning and consideration to the type of systems that were to be incorporated and the controlled system to be used by the residents of the suite.
The master bedroom
This room was to benefit from a wall mounted thin bezel large screen TV with surround sound, blinds and mood lighting control. Telephony, guest wifi, and scheduled actions.
Incorporated a surround sound system and large flat TV screen. Lighting control, bar and coffee facilities, blinds control, client wifi and telephony.
The bathroom was designed to fulfil the desire to have an area of relaxation and indulgence. An Aquavision TV was installed alongside an in-built speaker system, mood lighting and blind control.
Entertainment systems were also to be incorporated into the system that could be accessed from any location this included a PS4 and DVD player.
The requirement to have a control system that could be used easily and have a branded, user friendly interface was of the upmost importance. Lairds of Troon understood the customers concerns of guests being able to operate the control system independently and be robust to enough to withstand constant periods of use and subject to new devices or systems being introduced to the suite. The owners were introduced to RTI as this control system provided the owners the branded functionality, capability and easy to use interface that was required from the system.
The users interact with the system using room based touch panels as well as a locked down apple ipad tablet and the interface has been designed using the Hotels preferred signage.
Guests have the ability to control the lighting throughout the suite, control the blinds, access all media on any TV or audio system installed from the user friendly interface installed on the Tablet.
Hotel staff can override these controls for maintenance and cleaning modes, providing efficiency and confidence in managing the room.
RTI has the capability of supporting a number of systems and uses therefore the customer has the option of expanding the system or changing the current system functions, the added support mechanism allowed lairds to access remote support therefore minimising any disruption to the guests and giving the client the peace of mind he required.
