The White Hart Hotel


The Historic White Hart Hotel Gets Modern Access Control with SMARTair™.

The Challenge

The White Hart Hotel is one of the finest hotels in Harrogate and has been welcoming visitors to the area for over 250 years. Occupying a beautiful detached Georgian manor house, the White Hart Hotel is located in the heart of the antique quarter. Dueto the historical significance and setting of the site, even when it came to replacing the hotel’s failing security systems, its owners sought a solution that would blend in seamlessly with the overall aesthetics of the architecture.  

The Solution

When the owners of the White Hart Hotel contacted local Mul-T-Lock dealer, PSW Locksmiths recommended SMARTair. A state-of-the-art access control solution, SMARTair addresses the unique needs of the hotel. The solution’s electronic handles overcome many of the obstacles traditionally associated with access control solutions. With no hardwiring required, installation is simple and almost eliminates disruption to operations or guest comfort. Moreover, it reduces the cost and inconvenience associated with access control systems with its easy installation and because no complicated programming is necessary.

“The beauty of SMARTair™ for the White Hart Hotel is its ability to operate as an all in one solution, with no extra wiring required. This means we did not have to disrupt the historic aesthetics of the hotel in anyway, and could install SMARTair™ quickly and effectively to leave a high security solution for the benefit of all who work and visit the hotel”, said Paul Woods, PSW Locksmiths.

The Result

White Hart guests enjoy the security and convenience of SMARTair, while hotel management enjoys the added operational benefits. They can now easily manage access, while providing security and without compromise to the aesthetics of the building. Installed on every one of the hotel’s guest rooms, SMARTair not only provides better security, it’s a more reliable solution that makes operations easier and smoother. Something both hotel management and guests appreciate.
Sarah Carter, HR Manager at White Hart Hotel, comments: “PSW Locksmiths worked to ensure installation had no impact on our guests, all our staff have now been trained and it’s like SMARTair™ has always been around. We’re really pleased with the result both from an aesthetic perspective and also with the additional peace of mind wecan offer guests.”
