The new Jubilee Room and Bar at the Best Western Premier Queen Hotel is a marketing initiative created by managing director of the Feathers Hotel Group, Stuart Hunter, and Preston-based designer Nita Patel.
The creative and conceptual space features stately Union Jack-decorated thrones, a toy soldier-themed bar, a gallery of Queen’s head postage stamps throughout the years of her reign and quirky paintings reflecting the grandness of the royal household.
Since the bar’s official opening four weeks ago, the Queen Hotel has seen a substantial rise in the number of international visitors from America, Japan and all across Europe, as well as an increase in interest from existing mid-week corporate and leisure clients.
Stuart Hunter said: “Britain is an exciting place to be in 2012 and with the forthcoming Jubilee celebrations we thought it was appropriate to mark such a great event with a unique design approach.
“We’re thrilled to have created a unique, fun and engaging environment in which guests can celebrate British culture and heritage; it will undoubtedly reinforce goodwill with existing clients and create further demand through our marketing channels.”
To complement the Royal theme, the hotel’s award-winning head chef, Simon Davies, has created a Best of British menu which features favourite British dishes sourced from local produce and served up with a unique twist.
