The rebrand is a sign that the Manor House Country Hotel is ready to open and welcome guests back, John O’Neill, General Manager at the Manor House explained. “We have been quietly working behind the scenes to develop a modern and classic identity for the hotel and its facilities. We commissioned local agency, think6 to help us and are delighted with the results”.

A grade II listed building, the Manor House holds many unique features with a rich history that dates back to the mid 1700’s. The rebrand pays tribute to the skill and craft of the Italian builders who, in the mid 1800’s installed the ornate foyer ceiling, hence the name Mestiere which translated from Italian means craft.

A talking point for many who visit the hotel, this striking carved ceiling celebrates the elegance of the original country Manor and has been the inspiration behind the diamond iconography of the rebrand.

Mr O’Neill said “We are excited by our new branding, it is a simple yet elegant design and true reflection of the hotel values, celebrating the uniqueness, heritage and history of the Manor House. Its application fits perfectly with our Belleek Restaurant, Watergate Bar, Cellar Bar & Bistro, Spa Sanctuary and Manor Leisure, The Lady of the Lake and Manor House Tours”.

Mr O’Neill concluded “As we prepare to welcome guests back we are continuing to work behind the scenes, bookings are looking promising for the summer season and like many of our colleagues across Northern Ireland we are starting to see a more optimistic future for hospitality”.
