Most of the laundry from the superbly situated 102 bedroom Sloane Square Hotel is sent out. However, the hotel keeps a small on-premises laundry to handle the 100% cotton bath robes that are supplied to guests in the Superior rooms or on request, together with curtains and as a back-up for other items in case they run short. Last year the hotel re-equipped its in-house laundry with an Amazon 6 washer-extractor and a Huebsch 200 litre capacity dryer from Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems.
The in-house laundry is operated by the porters and, according to Loreta Grudzinskaite, the housekeeping manager, is in operation at least four to five hours every day. She told us that they had been very pleased with the Armstrong equipment and the quality of the wash.
The Amazon W6 washer is a fully commercial specification 6kg machine perfect where space is limited, and the Huebsch LEZ27 is the world’s best selling 9kg tumble dryer.
