This Month in Premier Hospitality 7.2
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Hospitality.
In this month’s issue we unveil The Ned; we take a look at Weetwood Hall; and we profile Jurys Inn.
A major new ultra-stylish development in the City of London, The Ned comprises a sumptuous hotel, club and collection of restaurants – all within the historic Grade I Listed former Midland Bank building. Located in Poultry, next to Bank Station, the £200m development, named after the building’s famous architect, was carried out for Soho House & Co who joined forces with New York’s Sydell Group to create the scheme. Comprising 11 storeys with a floor area of 29,450 sq m, The Ned hosts nine restaurants, 252 bedrooms, a range of men’s and women’s grooming services (Cowshed, Cheeky and Neville) and ‘Ned’s Club’.
Meanwhile, Convive, a stunning new restaurant and bar has launched at Weetwood Hall. Convive is a 120 seat Mediterranean restaurant and bar where guests are able to enjoy a full dining experience including a unique alfresco area under a retractable roof within the themed gardens and surroundings. As part of the £2m spend, significant investment has gone into the kitchens with a brand new build and kit installation totalling over £450k. The development created 25 jobs at launch with a chef and kitchen team of 12.
And finally, over the last five years, Jurys Inn Hotels has invested 75 million in its properties to ensure all locations have a contemporary look and feel, with comfortable and stylish new interiors. The company has committed a further 26 million in investment across the group in 2017 so that by the end of the year, a significant number of hotels will have been transformed to ensure that their facilities are of a high standard and fully meet the needs of and expectations of guests. Amongst the Jurys Inn hotels already refurbished with a brand new look in 2017 are those at Aberdeen Airport, Inverness and Brighton Waterfront – all of which have been commended by guests.
With all this and more it’s time to sit back and tuck into another helping of Premier Hospitality.
