Client Recommendation - Hever Castle, Kent

I am very happy to recommend Sarah Clark of Stitches Interiors Ltd for design and project management work. She has consistently worked miracles here at Hever Castle.

Her budgets include renovation of the Astor Wing, which is an Edwardian wing attached to the old castle. The rooms were originally done to a very high standard in the early 1900s and were converted to more bedrooms with en-suites in the 1980s. Very little work has taken place since the 1980s and Sarah has done an excellent job bringing these rooms back up to the opulence and standard one would expect of a castle like Hever. She has done this while being sensitive to the original features in the rooms, but also introducing modern technology and a wealth of colours, fabrics and designs, which have resulted in our receiving a great many compliments.

Not only has she designed the rooms, she has also managed a team of electricians, plumbers, joiners, tilers and decorators to ensure a smooth rapid refurbishment, which was always going to be necessary with a business such as ours, as we cannot afford the building to be unoccupied for too long. Due to the age of the building, it has not been without its problems and yet this has not deterred Sarah and she always seems to come up with solutions.

Sarah has also completely renovated the main bar and restaurant at the Golf Club. Again, this was a far from straight-forward operation, as the previous renovation appears to have been done on the cheap. It does not surprise me that we have been inundated with compliments from our members and other guests of the Golf Club. Indeed we are already receiving an increase in the number of enquiries for membership and have had the most number of new members joining in January since the club was bought ten years ago.

She has been very good at costing the job and keeping me abreast of any problems that arise and what extra costs there might be. So far, I have had no really nasty surprises and the team she has put together has proved to be considerably better value than many other local operators.

I have no hesitation at all in recommending Sarah as, not only is she professional in everything she does, but she also has a very good sense of humour, which I suspect plays a large part in the team she has working here doing such an excellent job. I should also add that she does not accept poor quality workmanship.

Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to come back to me.

Yours sincerely
