Hotel Tile Restoration

Complete Tile Restoration, Cleaning and Replication for Hotels across the UK

The restoration of Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian Tiling is our speciality but it is also our duty to provide this service so that as many people as possible can view the truly breathtaking mosaic and geometric tiling designs of the era.  A skill that has sadly been all but lost in the modern era.

And what better place to view mosaic tiling than in the hallways of Hotels across the UK.

We are Were Tiling, a specialist tile restoration firm focusing on original period tiling of hallways, entranceways, fireplaces and pathways.

We have worked on multiple hotel restoration projects over the years as well as commission work designing new mosaic designs that reflect a modern interpretation of this original style.

Our work includes listed and non listed buildings and projects of all sizes.  From front step entranceway tiling of boutique accommodation to large scale restoration of Victorian Baths and Georgian Hotel Hallways.

As a properly trained tile restoration specialist we fully understand both the undertaking of these projects, the timescales and what is required most importantly to get the job done properly.

We will always use where possible the original tiles to keep things as authentic as possible and where original tiling is sadly to far gone to be restored, we will use either re-claimed tiles and matched tiles to create an exact match on floored tiling.

The importance of looking your best

In the hospitality sector, first impressions matter and a hotel needs to look its best.  An impressive entranceway and lobby can truly set off the right impression for guests.

What Our Customers Say

Brian from Newcastle

We were replacing a carpet in our hall and discovered the original Victorian tiling was still there. Andrew came to our home, looked at the tiling and gave us a quote with no hassle. His attention to detail and careful and methodical approach are clear in the end results. We are so delighted with the work that he has done. We never thought about having a tiled hallway but we are more than delighted with the results and it has increased the value of our home considerably.

Andy from Glasgow

We were looking for our Storm Door area and hallway to have a matching contemporary geometric tile design to them. We want a modern take that worked with our period Victorian home. Andrew was one of three tilers we call. He was the only one who took any measurements and really looked at the set up that we wanted. We went Were because they seemed to know what they were talking about and we were impressed with their detailed quote breakdown. It meant we knew exactly what to expect. And the end result - we could not be more happy with the end results. Our hallway looks better than ever.
