College Court Hotel is an award winning modern hotel with excellent facilites and friendly and attentive staff. It also has a fascinating history. It is a Grade Two Listed building that has been very carefully transformed into a conference centre. It won a Royal Institute of British Architects' Stirling Prize in 2014. The original architects were Sir Leslie Martin and Trevor Dannatt.

 

The morning I took my photographs the light was very 'flat' indeed and colour shots just did not look 'right' so I used Colour Efex detail extractor, and then used Silver Efex to change them to mono. The photos do not flatter the building which has been so carefully restored but they were not intended for anyone but me.
