Fresh Start to the New Year
Renovations Complete! This past January we completed some extensive renovations to the hotel, which included all hallways, main staircase, four Fireplace rooms, touch ups to our 2 Honeymoon Rooms and new carpet in 3 Sunflower Rooms. It was definitely a team effort to get everything ready in time for the re-opening and with the exception of the hallways, the ambitious task was accomplished on schedule.
The decor was designed by Design District Studio, based here in Victoria. All four Fireplace Rooms have beautiful King size beds with four poster beds in the 2 second floor rooms. The two 1st floor rooms have more feminine touches of gold, blue and red. Ornate wallpaper with beautiful birds enhance the feature wall. While the 2 first floor rooms are decorated in bold black and gold, with soft fabrics adorning the bed posts. Each room also has a new custom built wardrobe, engraved with our logo. The designers were careful to maintain the look of the building while updating to an elegant boutique style. The main stairway has new rich carpet with a an elegant black and gold pattern. The Hallways were brightened with gray carpet and cream wallpaper, which has a lovely gray swirl pattern, similar to our logo.
Rich fabric around the alcove and new pillow treatments in a deep aubergine were added to our Honeymoon Rooms to give them a pop of colour.
The last of the Main House Room renovations are complete for now, and each displays the progressive transformation of Abigail's from a Country Inn to an elegant boutique bed and breakfast hotel.
