New Hotel du Vin for Stratford
Living only a few miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, I am frequently to be seen browsing the little shops that infect this famous town. More likely than not I will also be eating in one of the many restaurants and hotels that have grown up in Shakespeare's home town over many years. It is no surprise then that boutique hotel company Malmaison Hotel du Vin has announced it will open a Hotel du Vin branded property next year in the home of the Bard - Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire.
The 48-bedroom Hotel du Vin, follows an announcement from the group that it as signed a development agreement to transform two Georgian townhouses into a hotel. The grade II listed property – which is expected to create 60 jobs and open in 2016 – will feature a meeting room, private dining rooms, a bistro, and separate banqueting rooms.
The hotel in Rother Street, will be the fourth property to be developed by Malmaison Hotel du Vin in the last 18 months following the purchase, and current conversion to a Hotel du Vin, of Cannizaro House in Wimbledon, and the openings of Malmaison in Dundee and Hotel du Vin in St Andrews. Paul Roberts, CEO of Malmaison Hotel du Vin said: “We are extremely excited about opening Hotel du Vin in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon. The hotel’s lifestyle brand is a perfect fit for those attracted to the stunning and thought-provoking Shakespearean sites that make Stratford-upon-Avon such a global destination. “This development represents Malmaison Hotel du Vin’s significant growth prospects and commitment to deliver an exceptional customer experience in stunning surroundings.”
