Novotel London West Conferences & Events

Initially Novotel London West took delivery of seventy Buffet-Rite table tops which convert standard trestle tables into buffet tables with hard wearing, wipe clean surfaces. The table tops and black stretch table covers were made to order to fit existing table stocks of various sizes. Within a couple of years, Novotel London West ordered more Buffet-Rite table tops to increase their capacity and once again, these were produced to their exact specification.

Michael Sloan, General Manager at Novotel London West believes that hotels today want to take the initiative when it comes to the environment and not only that, but also to ensure that suppliers do so too.

One of the distinct advantages of Buffet-Rite is that it protects the table linen used for a buffet table so that less laundry is required and the hotel can reduce their energy usage, making Buffet-Rite advantageous for a hotel that wants to be environmentally friendly. In addition Buffet-Rite frames are made from 100% recyclable material.

Furniture has been developed to meet the needs of expediency, durability and environmental awareness. The Buffet-Rite table top is exclusive to Forbes Group and is the ideal solution where large scale buffet service and a fast turnaround is required.
