DERBY, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- It's hard to beat waking up to 300 acres of unspoilt English parkland, especially when one does so from the elegantly modern guest rooms of a building dating back to the 13th century. But Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club has nonetheless found a way to make its guests' (coffee) cups runneth over with joy. On 21 August 2014, the hotel will begin pouring Starbucks coffee within its hallowed walls and, in the process, it will once again make history.
Complementing the hotel's one-of-a-kind Derby accommodation, Starbucks coffee will appear as part of the upgraded package in the Priory King Room, Superior Room and suites. Guests staying elsewhere on property don't have to go far to get their morning fix, either. The hotel's Tempo Restaurant & Bar will serve the beloved brew as well.
The arrival of Starbucks coffee is just one more way Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club has made its historic charm both relevant and appealing to modern travellers. While its original sandstone walls call to mind a bygone era, its luxury bedding and high-speed Internet access speak to contemporary comforts. Original architecture in the Priory Rooms is enhanced by a cheerful palette of rich wood, buttery yellows and hunter green. And the hotel's Derby meeting rooms -- now prepared to energise guests with the world's favourite coffee -- accommodate diverse groups with intimate period rooms, airy spaces overlooking the garden and an expansive conference room with views of the Championship Priory Course.
Breadsall Priory has long enjoyed a distinguished reputation among Derbyshire historic hotels. Its two golf courses, spa and unparalleled pedigree attract visitors and groups alike. Now, by proudly serving Starbucks on property, it's adding one more dimension to the unforgettable experience that has enthralled visitors for centuries.
About the Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club
Seated on 300 acres of stunning English parkland, the Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club may have begun in 1260 under austere circumstances, but today it embraces a decidedly luxurious approach to travel. Guests can practice their swing on the Breadsall Priory Country Club's two 18-hole courses, unwind with a massage or facial at the Priory Retreat spa, take a dip in the indoor pool or work out at the Leisure Club Fitness Center and still not exhaust the hotel's wide range of amenities. Dining, for example, includes the award-winning Priory Restaurant, whose English cuisine and wine list have earned it a place among Derby's best fine-dining venues, and the casual, recently renovated Tempo Restaurant & Bar. The 112 guest rooms delight with original Priory architecture in the main hall and period-inspired, farmhouse-style structures elsewhere. Modern comforts include Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, laptop-size safes, in-room coffee/tea service and luxury bedding. The nine function rooms inspire meetings and events alike, while sightseers can look forward to exploring the stunning natural landscape of the Peak District National Park, the majestic Chatsworth House (home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire) and even Alton Towers theme park.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
