Four Teesside businesses have become the first occupants of prestigious new commercial premises at Acklam Hall.
Nursery group Montessori People, Roseberry Photography, Rebecca Thomas Photography and 3AD3 Limited are now based at Acklam Hall’s ‘Bvsiness Rooms’ located on the top floor of the historic building, which opened its doors in February following a multi-million pounds’ restoration.
The Bvsiness Rooms’ 18 offices range in size from two to 10 desks and have a dedicated reception service and super-fast internet. The facilities are complimented by a range of meeting rooms, conference facilities and experienced administrative support.
The private, fully-equipped serviced offices in Acklam Hall offer 24-hour access, off-road parking, a fully staffed reception, use of the restaurant for informal meetings, a dedicated telephone line and voicemail with remote access message retrieval, personalised call answering in the individual company name, mail and fax handling and showering facilities.
In addition to the serviced offices, virtual offices are also available for companies not yet requiring a physical workspace but who desire an exclusive address, telephone answering and mail handling service.
Montessori People, rated outstanding by Ofsted, provides high quality childcare at its nursery in the High Fliers Centre in Thornaby.
Managing director, Michelle Tudor, said: “My decision to relocate my office to Acklam Hall has been one of the best business decisions I have made as it allows me quick access to the nursery when I need it but provides me with the quiet time I need to focus on the business side of the nursery. The quality of finish and the level of service Acklam Hall has provided so far has been amazing and I am sure I will be here for a long time.”
Acklam Hall, Middlesbrough’s only Grade I-listed building, underwent 18 months of renovation restoring its rooms and dozens of features dating back hundreds of years to their original grandeur.
The redevelopment, by Acklam Hall Limited, has seen the complete restoration of the building, which dates back to the 1680s and was home to Teesside’s Hustler family for almost 250 years, before becoming a school in the 1930s.
Martin Williams, from Acklam Hall Ltd, said: “There has been a lot of interest in The Bvsiness Rooms and we are delighted to have new occupants just a few months after opening our doors. We don’t believe that there is anything else quite like our offices in the area providing such an exceptional lifestyle choice for businesses. We have purposely designed the offices to provide state-of-the-art facilities in prestigious surroundings yet in an easily accessible location.”
As well as The Bvsiness Rooms, Acklam Hall is home to The Brierley restaurant, which serves homemade dishes from breakfast and lunch to afternoon tea and dinner. The Brierley offers two dining experiences- The Salon, which is open all day for breakfasts, lunches and evening meals as well as Sunday lunches, and the more formal Dining Room which offers a range of afternoon teas and a la carte fine dining.
Acklam Hall also has a variety of function suites including The Drawing Room with its spectacular ceiling and views of Middlesbrough’s famous ‘Avenue of Trees’, The Parlour and The Boudoir.
