Introduction to client

We are delighted to provide hotel maintenance for The Harbour Hotels Group who have a portfolio of 15 stunning hotel properties across the south of England with many in spectacular coastal locations. Henshall Electrical Ltd have been privileged to work with the group in maintaining and installing electrical systems and equipment at two of their sites in Christchurch. 

It really is a pleasure when the call comes in for us to attend to at either the Kings Arms Hotel or at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel. The Kings Hotel sits by the riverside opposite the historic Christchurch Priory and the ruins of a Norman House dating back to the 12th Century. Christchurch Harbour Hotel is located in picturesque Mudeford and backs onto the panorama of Christchurch Harbour with views across to Hengistbury Head and the Mudeford spit.


We provide hotel maintenance on a multitude of projects both large and small at both of the sites and are often in attendance out of hours after an urgent phone call. Henshall Electrical prides itself on a customer focussed work ethic which compliments the hotel environment perfectly; ideally the guests will never even know we have been in attendance! 

We work closely with the management and maintenance teams of the venues, helping to ensure that the operations run smoothly and that the guest experience is second to none. Our team will plan their works to minimise inconvenience and down time, scheduling work to eliminate disruption to the normal running of the hotels.

One of the most important services we provide is ensuring that our clients can achieve compliance in the relevant technical areas of electrical and fire safety. Our highly trained design and commissioning engineers draw upon their extensive experience and refer to the most up to date regulatory requirements whilst keeping an eye on upcoming developments to help sustain the alignment of the sites with any future legislation.

Safety is at the forefront of our considerations when planning works and we liaise with the maintenance and front of house teams to ensure that risks to the staff and public are eliminated both during installation and during the working lifetime of the property. 

Aesthetics are prime consideration at these properties and it is essential that the wiring systems and equipment do not detract from the customer experience. The team at Henshall Electrical have a breadth of experience in high end domestic and commercial installation which is put to use in picking the most elegant and stylish of products and in performing minor miracles in concealing wiring and switchgear.

We have provided services across all systems in all areas of the properties ranging from swimming pool lighting to commercial oven supplies and distribution board replacement. All our work is rigorously inspected and tested before being commissioned and put into service. We maintain a highly efficient system of record keeping meaning that all compliance documentation can be provided to our management teams at short notice.
