Gara Rock Hotel stands on the clifftops near Salcombe in South Devon, within the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With stunning views to die for, unrivalled culinary experiences and superb spa facilities, it’s set to be one of the finest boutique retreats on the UK coastline.

We have been supporting Gara Rock Hotel for a number of years, however more recently they have just gone through a huge remodelling process, creating apartments, hotel rooms, secret suites and a fine dining experience. Microcomms, working with various trades and Mechanical & Electrical companies, have been fundamental in helping to assist with the infrastructure design to deliver 5 Star technology to its guests and staff.

With our knowledge of the site and experience in dealing with construction companies, we have designed a high-speed network backbone to accommodate hundreds of guests and numerous ‘bandwidth hungry’ services.

As well as the fibre and copper infrastructure, we have helped to design and implement a brand new state-of-the-art network, Wifi with social analytics and an AV experience worthy of the stunning location.

With phase one complete, we look forward to another huge project with phase two.

Paul Hodgson (Head of Operations for Microcomms) says, there have been some challenging deadlines, and interesting problems to solve, but it has been a delight to work on such a project and see the transition from building site through to a 5 star guest experience. We have pretty much had a clean slate to work from and have helped to design everything from core infrastructure, to enterprise Wifi, all the way through to the huge WAN connectivity that is required to push through guest services.
