This Month in Premier Hospitality 11.1
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Hospitality.
In this month’s issue we take a look at Dominique Ansel Treehouse; we check out boutique aparthotel The Gate; and we unveil The Maynard.
Chef Dominique Ansel, named World’s Best Pastry Chef by the World’s 50 Best Awards, has opened Dominique Ansel Treehouse, a new all-day café comprising of bistro and bakery in London’s Covent Garden.
Dominique Ansel Treehouse’s loft two-storey space features cosy seating throughout both the ground floor and upper level, with the majority of the bistro’s seating located upstairs in the treetop ‘canopy.’ Guests will find the ‘tree trunk’ at the centre of the ground floor space where a bakery counter greets guests for desserts to takeaway or to enjoy in if they wish.
The Gate is a boutique aparthotel in Aldgate East, which offers the service and style of a hotel with the privacy of a self-service apartment. Modern travellers’ needs and taste in accommodation are changing – people desire more choice than a traditional hotel versus self-catering apartments and The Gate aims to bridge the gap between the two. The new aparthotel feels like an elevated version of your own home, with full-service amenities and flexible stay periods where guests can stay for one night or up to three months.
Situated in Whitechapel, just a one-minute walk from Aldgate East tube station, The Gate is directly influenced by the style and culture of the vibrant London streets it overlooks, connecting guests with its surroundings and the local East London community.
The Maynard, an 18th century property in Grindleford in the Peak District, has been brought back to life with a £70k funding boost from NatWest, and has unveiled a new restaurant and bar, ballroom and garden area.
The refreshed restaurant now has 110 covers and serves ‘fresh and locally-sourced food’, and work is also underway to convert a disused function room into a new bridal suite and an additional bedroom, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 12.
With all this and more it’s time to sit back and tuck into another helping of Premier Hospitality. Go well!
