Housel Bay Hotel


Opening in the summer of 1894, Housel Bay is much more than just a hotel. It has its’ very own breadth of history. This historic character can still be felt within its walls. The Victorian architecture was designed by famous Cornishman, Silvanus Trevail, and many of the original features remain unchanged.

from design
to completion

Past guests include the great Guglielmo Marconi, who is celebrated for sending the first signal across the ocean, mere metres from Housel Bay.

Having built up a good working relationship as a local supplier over a number of years with the present owners, Cornwall Catering Equipment were delighted to be called upon to design and specify a new high end kitchen fitout from scratch.

  • Brand new kitchen ventilation system with island canopy and integrated supply air system
  • Bespoke Island all electric induction cooking suite
  • New pass and warewash areas
  • Bespoke fabricated preparation areas

After careful consideration of the various brands and options available Control Induction were selected to supply and install the island suite, which displays many innovative and state of the art features;- namely:

  • Twin individual Plancha’s with composite (even heat) steel tops
  • Inset condiment rails
  • Slider multi zone induction technology (graduated heat zones left to right – put the pans anywhere on the zone and it heat , just like a gas solid top;
  • Plate detect instant heat salamander grill (energy efficient only heats when tray or plate put under grill and then up to temperature in 8 seconds;
  • Inset fryers, integrated convection oven additional rapid heat (5kw) induction zones.

We ensured the designs and installations were completed to the highest possible standard in a very short installation window , closely following the client’s wishes at all times, and with the highest attention to detail- right down to the hotel logo and artwork which you can see laser cut into the stainless steel & visible on the end panel of the extraction canopy.
