If you’re planning your next trip then check out some of these British hotels and boltholes, all new for 2017
Looking for a seaside retreat, a city base or a remote hideaway this year? Then read on for our roundup of some of the most exciting British hotels for 2017.
Four Seasons Ten Trinity Square, London
If you’re looking for a stay in the capital at the luxury end of the market then how about the Art Deco finesse of the Four Seasons, which opened in January?
This summer new suites will open at the hotel, housed in a restored Grade II listed building, which cost £1m when it was built in 1922. Every effort has been made to maintain and restore the original features of architect Sir Edwin Cooper. And the Rotunda Bar is one of the most glamorous settings for a cocktail in the capital imaginable.
This new boutique hotel in the Essex seaside town of Southend-on-Sea (due to open in September) has 37 bedrooms, 3 luxury apartments, a restaurant with an outdoor terrace and a dedicated gin bar. The hotel’s biggest selling point though (aside from its proximity to seven miles of beaches) is its splendid view across the Thames Estuary.
The second London opening for the Dorsett Hospitality International group of hotels, this East London hotel promises affordable rooms. Plus, from September guests will be able to make use of the rooftop bar with views of The Shard and the Tower of London.
Once a popular restaurant in Hove, East Sussex (near Brighton), The Ginger Pig has now opened 11 boutique en-suite rooms upstairs. Each of the double rooms includes a minibar stocked with handmade cocktails, coffee machines and even beach bags packed with towels and mats.
These new reserves, recently added to the established complex on the private Isle of Eriska on the west coast of Scotland, offer a sense of seclusion away from the main hotel. Positioned on a hill, you can enjoy views over Loch Creran and to the island of Lismore and beyond from your very own hot tub.
Guests can also use the golf course, swimming pool and spa facilities of the main hotel, just a short walk away.
This 200-room hotel is housed inside Cardiff’s Victorian Coal Exchange, once the epicentre of the world’s coaling industry. Upstairs, bedrooms are luxuriously decorated, with velvet bedding and grand dressing tables. Downstairs, the RP Culley & Co Bar and Restaurant pays homage to the history of the building and sources its produce from the surrounding valleys and bay.
