Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant Hotel

Altro Ensemble adds chic and noise reduction

Altro Ensemble

“Altro Ensemble has completely lived up to its promise and we are delighted with how it has transformed the apartment.It has added a wonderful warmth, style and unique luxury, which is perfect and exactly the high standard Best Western offers guests.”

Richard Tyas,
Hotel Manager


The upstairs apartment suite at the Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant Hotel, Doncaster, was very popular with small parties and group bookings who want a private social gathering. The apartment was fitted with carpet, which is standard in hotel rooms, but it was giving some problems.

The noise from the apartment was reverberating and disturbing guests in the bedrooms below. Also the carpet was hard to keep clean. Food is often served in the apartment, and was sometimes ground into the carpet making it difficult to clean. Wear and tear was also an issue, because carpet quickly starts to look shabby and tired.


The hotel worked with BW Flooring, who carry out all refurbishment work for the hotel. BW Flooring use Altro and recommended Altro Ensemble for a stylish, practical surface that would provide good sound-proofing.


Hotel Manager Richard Tyas, said: “The flooring has really helped to reduce the noise and the bedrooms below can now sleep soundly and not be disturbed. People return again and again to the apartment and they have told us they love the new style, and are so impressed with how chic it looks. We are also finding the flooring easy to clean and very durable.

“With a 15bB sounds reduction this is an excellent flooring for cutting down noise, and the surface keeps its looks and is so easy to clean. It was a dream to fit, too, and because it comes in planks rather than one sheet, there is so much less wastage.”

BW Flooring

“In addition, if a section of the flooring becomes damaged or worn in the future, we can just replace that one plank rather than the entire floor, so it’s a very cost-effective solution too.

“We are so pleased with Altro that we are hoping to fit their flooring when we upgrade our commercial kitchen. Here, practicality, safety and a smart modern space are the key issues to address, and we are looking forward to moving that on.”
