AYH head Burlington makeover.

Birmingham property consultants AYH have played a pivotal role in the pounds 1.1 million refurbishment of the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in the city.

The project is one of 30 hotel works undertaken by the Edgbaston office, which is overseeing pounds 50 million of improvements to the Macdonald Hotel estate.

AYH, which is based in Hagley Road, was responsible for overseeing the installation of comfort cooling in the 112 bedrooms of the Burlington, in New Street.

The project also involved building four state-of-the-art meeting rooms at the four-star hotel to upgrade its facilities for event organisers and businesses in the city.

James Flynn, project manager at AYH, said they had been appointed by MacdonaldHotels & Resorts as project and cost managers to undertake refurbishments, extensions and new build projects.

The work includes building a new 161-bedroom hotel in Sheffield city centre as well as installing air conditioning andcarrying out renovation work at hotels in Stratford and Cheltenham.

It is overseeing the building of a new leisure club at the Alveston Manor in Stratford and a health spa at the Last Drop Village site in Bolton.

Kevin Skeet, general manager of the Macdonald Burlington Hotel, said the feedback from guests to the refurbishment had been extremely positive.

He said: ``The interior work and decorations are an excellent mix of contemporary and traditional styles to complement the hotel which was built in 1871.

``The pounds 1.1 million investment highlights our determination to offer the very best facilities and build on our reputation as a premier destination for providing first-class accommodation
