Auchrainnie Resort

When the Auchrannie Resort needed new laundry equipment, the company researched the market and settled on Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems. General Manager Richard Small says ‘we had been very happy with the previous equipment and the support we had from Armstrong and we were pleased they proved the most competitive. The new equipment includes five 16 kg washer extractors, three 25 kg Huebsch tumble dryers and a 1800 mm Gaion drying ironer.

Auchrannie on the Isle of Arran has grown from a 16 bedroom guest house in 1988 to a resort now comprising two 4 star hotels with 64 rooms, thirty 5 star self-catering luxury lodges, three restaurants and two leisure clubs with pools, saunas and steam rooms. Auchrannie is still developing and recently approved plans including 40 more bedrooms and a destination spa.

‘Our laundry handles everything from table linen to the towels from the spa’ says Richard Small ‘and our star ratings mean our standards are extremely high. The equipment works 14 hours a day, seven days a week and because of our location, reliability and high quality support matters a great deal to us. Armstrong meets all our requirements in quality and service.’

What our clients say...

  • “Our machines have come from several suppliers – there is a big difference in the standards of support we receive and Armstrong gets 10 out of 10 – their service has been consistently excellent over several years and when you’re as busy as we are, that’s very important.”

    Jacqui Butler

  • “It’s important to get the right equipment for the job, too small and it won’t do it properly, too big and you are wasting money, energy and space. It is also important to deal with a company you trust to supply reliable equipment and give you the support you need. As expected, the installation went smoothly, we have never had the slightest problem and I know Armstrong will deal with it if we do.”

    Colin Farquharson, St Ermin’s Hotel

  • “Our relationship with Armstrong goes back a long way, and they continue to give us excellent service and extremely reliable equipment.”

    Suzy Brandwood, The Elms School

    Wendy Clayton, Chepstow Nursing & Care Home

    Fr Oliver, Douai Abbey

  • “That’s the thing with Armstrong, if you ask for service you get it – quickly.  We know we can rely on them which is really important as the speed and quality of the laundry is vital to the hotel.”

    James Suter, The Gliffae Country House Hotel

  • “As before I am delighted with the dryers, they are really efficient and reliable and the customers find them very easy to use.”

    Shaid Aziz, Bright Wash Launderette
