Douai Abbey in Berkshire is a beautiful monastery, home to 15 Benedictine monks. In addition to accommodation for the monks, the complex includes several conference rooms, a dedicated guest refectory with a 5-star rated kitchen, a 22 room guest house and some self-catering accommodation in converted workers’ cottages. This part of the monastery hosts individuals and groups for retreats, conferences and relaxation breaks away from the hectic bustle of 21st century life.
The abbey has its own laundry where the monks do their personal washing and the housekeepers do all the laundry associated with the busy hospitality facilities. The laundry operates a selection of Huebsch washers and dryers all supplied by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems. Fr Oliver, bursar at the abbey, told us that the machines are kept very busy, work well and have been very reliable.
