Project Description

Client: The Inn Collection
Location: Helmsley, Yorkshire
Duration: 32 weeks

ICG engaged with 7formation to fully refurbish their newly acquired landmark hotel, The Black Swan, which is in the beautiful historic town of Helmsley, North Yorkshire.

Dating back to the 15th Century, the hotel has Tudor, Edwardian and Victorian buildings which have been converted over the centuries to make one building. Throughout its history, the hotel has hosted many well-known people. William Wordsworth was one of its first famous guests. Several members of the royal family stayed there as well as many other celebrities.

The works included a complete remodeling of the ground floor reception, bar, and restaurant areas as well as a full refurbishment of all the existing 45 bedrooms and internal alterations to allow the hotel to add 16 new bedrooms, all to the Group’s
renowned high specification and branding. The original heating systems, plant areas, and all mechanical and electrical services were stripped out and replaced to a high specification. Working closely with the design team throughout this extensive refurbishment, 7formation remained mindful and respectful of the sensitivity of the building’s history, recognising the importance of retaining the charm, character, and features of the building.

The project was handed over in phases to enable the client to trade early as work progressed. The project was completed in January 2022.

Holiday Inn – Whitechapel


Project Description

Client:   Holiday Inn
Location: Whitechapel
Client: Holiday Inn Whitechapel

As part of Holiday Inn open lobby refurbishment programme, 7formation were delighted to assist Holiday Inn Whitechapel with the full refurbishment of their lobby area, bar, meeting rooms and toilet facilities. Crucial to the success of this project would be the interaction and careful planning with the hotel management team, ensuring phasing of the works would minimize the
impact on the hotel’s guests.


”I had the privilege of working with 7formations at the Holiday Inn London Whitechapel on the Open lobby project. Our “Open Lobby” was not the typical Holiday Inn… Ours brings out the most creative, edgy, and fitting in perfectly with this urban cool design which did justice to the East London area. They went into the project knowing the huge pressure to be one of the best open lobby concept within the Holiday Inn in the UK, what the time constraints were and the possible disruption it may cause to our guests. 7formation did justice to the design and were always flexible to work around us. Following the success of this project, I am now working with 7formation for another 2 projects which is already underway. I would highly recommend them for any project they are qualified for.”
