A hotel in Coventry was named one of the 100 Best Hotels in Great Britain by the Sunday Times.
Coventry’s Telegraph Hotel was included in the Sunday Times annual guide to the UK’s 100 Best Hotels – and only two West Midlands hotels were selected for the prestigious award.
The Telegraph has only been open for five months – and it’s no secret why it’s popular in the city.
The four star hotel is located on Corporation Street in the former Coventry Telegraph Offices that boast a mid-century modernity that adds a touch of luxury to the modern space.
The Telegraph opened its doors in May of this year following a £ 18 million investment program with a total of 88 individually designed, air-conditioned bedrooms, including a loft-style penthouse suite on two levels.
Ian Harrabin, who together with his brother Brian Harrabin develops and owns the hotel operated by Bespoke Hotels, describes this as the highest accolade to date.
He said, “To be listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 after just five months of trading is a testament to the quality and design of the Telegraph, but also of the Amy Windsor-led team who have provided such a high level of customer service Has .
“We had to postpone the opening twice because of Covid, but we kept our promises – a hotel that not only offers visitors to the city and the region something new and different, but also attracts people to try what we do have created.
“Seeing the Telegraph Hotel in the Sunday Times Guide is truly a reward for everyone involved in the project and will hopefully get more people to experience the hotel, but also Coventry, in a tremendous year for the city. “
The hotel has an all day cocktail bar and restaurant at Forme & Chase, which offers full main courses, light snacks, banquets, afternoon tea and more.
The bar and restaurant embody a glamorous 1950s aesthetic while maintaining many of the building’s original features.
Generators, the rooftop bar overlooking Belgrade Square, drew 3,000 people in the first month since it opened.
The hotel’s most luxurious room is the Lord Iliffe Suite – named after the family who founded the newspaper and owned the newspaper until recently – with its own jacuzzi and outdoor terrace.
There are 11 bedrooms with access to a private, glazed interior terrace, the so-called winter garden.
The Sunday Times 100 Best British Hotels annual travel guide took into account the high quality design of the hotels and the food and drink served on the premises.
