Lifestyle hotel group, Malmaison Hotel du Vin, has released the first pictures of Hotel du Vin Stratford-upon-Avon, giving guests an idea of what to expect when the hotel opens its doors in Spring 2018.
The collection of images reveals the interior design of the bedrooms, which are a contemporary development of the traditional Hotel du Vin rooms.
Colourful accents and stylish wooden furniture add to the dark greys, navies and greens of the walls with an added modern touch to the traditional decor.
The group has also announced the appointment of Nicolas Jefford as general manager and Karen Hannon as hotel sales manager.
Jefford has previous experience as general manager at The William Cecil Hotel in Stamford. Since then he’s held similar roles at the Dalmunzie Castle Hotel, as well as the Bovey Castle Hotel and Mallory Court Hotel.
Hannon brings over ten years’ experience in sales and marketing. She joins the group from the Collaboration Company, where she has been a marketing and events project manager since 2015.
The new hotel will have 48 bedrooms and the brand’s famous French-inspired Bistro, serving a menu that relies on fresh and seasonal produce. The hotel also features a meetings space and private dining rooms, as well as a separate banqueting room.
Nick Halliday, chief operating officer at Hotel du Vin, said: “Nicolas brings with him an impressive wealth of experience and is the ideal candidate to take charge of this exciting new hotel.
“We’re delighted to have someone of Karen’s calibre join with Nicolas as our home sales manager. I look forward to working with them both as we bring Hotel du Vin to Stratford-upon-Avon.”
