Things to remember when hosting an event at a Heritage hotel

Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace, Ooty is a heritage hotel that was restored to its past glory by His Highness Srikantha Datta Narsimharaj Wodeyar. It was an epitome of celebrations and leisure and His Highness has some fond memories of the palace. Now Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace is set to welcome and host its guests with the same signature grandeur of the past.

Functions are a time for revelry while events are meant for setting the mood; conferences on the other hand are about impeccable presentations while club meets and get –together are about leisure and reflection. Can a heritage hotel be an apt place to hold all or any of these events? Of course, it can. A heritage hotel adds a character to the event as its walls and artifacts convey a riveting story of a bygone era. Those fascinating times are captured in your event and it adds a new dimension to the whole celebration. Here are a few things to look for, while choosing a heritage hotel for your event.

Area – Old palaces or bunglows are usually very spacious. They also have abundant space around the property in terms of lawns, woods or parks. Based on the event that is being held, appropriate place should be selected. Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace has an ornate and magnificent durbar hall that would make any cultural event or a wedding reception magnum opus. Similarly large outdoor spaces coupled with excellent weather, work as a perfect backdrop for a musical event or fun event. Other things that need to be considered are the comfortable seating arrangements, spaces for storage, and availability and functionality of electric points or telecommunication services.

Exudes Character – Any well preserved palace would have magnificent interiors and exteriors. The hallowed walls would convey stories from a different era. Let your event showcase the regal setting. Let it gel with your event to exude a character to your event. See if any memorabilia’s are available that could be given to your guests. This would firmly etch your event in the minds of your guest. Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace has numerous paintings and photographs that dot the walls. It makes you feel a part of a royal family. The Fox Hunt Bar or the Curry and Rice restaurant, all have a fascinating history to tell.

Food – Food is one of the major deciding factors, when it comes to big events. Apart from tasting the food for quality and presentation, also ask the chef if they have any in house specialty. Royal palaces usually have their family recipes and having that as a specialty on your menu would steal the hearts of many a guests. Our Curry and Rice restaurant serves many royal kitchen recipes that have a distinct tale to tell. The chefs use handpicked ingredients and choicest of flavors to ensure that they never go wrong.

Facilities – Renovated heritage hotels do try and ensure that all modern amenities are provided to their guests. Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace, has some state of the art amenities in their suites that match the tastes of our discerning audience. Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace was renovated keeping in mind, a single philosophy – to be modern while retaining the essence of the palace. You will find a Jacuzzi, heater and high speed internet connection in the suite, while retaining the fire place and timeless furniture.

Hospitable Staff – An event is unlikely to succeed, in the absence of a hospitable staff. If it’s a royal palace that is overseen by a king himself, be assured that special attention has gone into the grooming of its staff. Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace prides in its excellent staff that has been offering impeccable service to numerous events. We believe that the hospitality staff is an invisible hand, while conducting any event. They should never be obstructive or obtrusive but be able to assist in every way possible.
