Malmaison Hotel du Vin, the leading UK boutique hotel brands, are pleased to announce that they have signed a development agreement to transform two Georgian townhouses into a luxurious new 48 bedroom Hotel du Vin in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon. The hotel in Rother Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, will be the fourth to be developed by the Malmaison Hotel du Vin Group in the last 18 months. It follows the purchase, and current conversion to a Hotel du Vin, of Cannizaro House in Wimbledon, south west London and the openings of Malmaison in Dundee and the launch of Hotel du Vin in St. Andrews.
The hotel, which is set to open by the end of 2016, will create jobs for at least 60 people. Facilities at the hotel will include meeting and private dining rooms, a Bistro and a separate banqueting room with the capacity to seat 80 diners. The development will be in keeping with the Grade II listed status of the buildings.
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.”
Malmaison Hotel du Vin is working with Stratford Town Trust, which owns the two Georgian buildings.
Helen Munro, CEO of Stratford Town Trust, said: “The Trust has been looking for a way to enhance the Rother Street area, making the most of the beautiful buildings, independent businesses and bustling marketplace. Following the Town Trust’s investment in the new Stratford Arts House this will certainly go a long way towards rejuvenating Rother Street. We are confident Hotel Du Vin, with its track record of individual prestige hotels in historic buildings, will be a great addition to Stratford.”
