UltraFloor is the cream of the crop at £3 million hotel renovation

UltraFloor and Stanground Carpets have completed a 550sqm flooring project at the beautiful Haycock Manor Hotel – one phase of a £3 million refurbishment project.


Located in idyllic and breath-taking scenery, guests at the Haycock Manor Hotel will enjoy the highest standards of comfort, Michelin-rated food and incredible views of the River Nene.

The beautiful hotel is the epitome of contemporary luxury with each room boasting stunning modern décor combined with the 15th century features of the building.

The Challenge

With many areas of the hotel dating back to the 15th century, it is safe to say the floors were somewhat uneven and required extensive preparation before the floorcoverings could be installed.

The Stanground Carpets team also had to contend with several different substrates including underfloor heating on the ground floor, timber in the bedrooms and concrete in the kitchen areas.

The Solution

To prepare the substrates in the award-winning Prévost restaurant, brand-new brasserie – The Haycock Kitchen – kitchen areas, drawing rooms, corridors and bedrooms, Stanground Carpets utilised UltraFloor’s Prime IT Multi-surface Primer and Level IT Two multi-purpose floor leveller.

Formulated to promote the adhesion to all UltraFloor smoothing underlayments, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer reduces pinholing, minimising the risk of costly failures. With a coverage rate of 200sqm at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.

After Prime IT Multi-surface Primer had cured, Level IT Two was trowel applied to a depth of 3mm.

There are many reasons why Level IT Two has become UltraFloor’s most popular floor leveller. Its exceptional flow characteristics make it a very easy material to apply to a variety of subfloors in both commercial and domestic flooring projects.

With a set time of 2.5 hours, Level IT Two can receive bonded floor coverings after just 8 hours, making it an ideal choice for projects with a tight deadline. What’s more, because Level IT Two is available as a two-component system, it takes the guesswork out of mixing, reducing site errors and guaranteeing a perfect application every time.

After just a few hours, Stanground Carpets could install the Karndean and Altro floorcoverings.


Thanks to the talented team at Stanground Carpets and the superior performance of UltraFloor, guests at The Haycock Manor Hotel are now enjoying a fine dining experience in the most luxurious of settings.

On using UltraFloor, Stuart Clark, Managing Director at Stanground Carpets, commented: “Great results from the products. They performed as they are described with no prep being required due to a perfect finish.”
