Within six months of entering the UK market, Asia based Compass Hospitality Group has added the historic and newly renovated Lace Market Hotel in High Pavement, Nottingham under its management.
Previously converted from a Georgian townhouse, the hotel was a mainstay for newlyweds and famous visitors to the city. With just 42 rooms and suites, the hotel offers personalized services to guests. Standard room amenities include flat screen HD LCD TV, high speed Wi-Fi, minibar and refreshment counter, and en-suite bathroom. Superior rooms and suites feature original fireplaces, free-standing bathtubs, artworks and period interior designs.
The dining experience is inspirational at Merchants Restaurant showcasing modern British cuisine by British Chef Ben Chaplin, Saint Cocktail Bar with award winning mixologist James Vyse, and Cock & Hoop, a quintessentially British pub majoring on cask ales and gastro food. An elegant meeting room accommodates 22 person comfortably for meetings and private dinners.
Nottingham is well known for Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest, and remains so to this day, with museums, landmarks, ballads and city walks associated with Nottingham’s most famous son. During the days of the British Empire, Nottingham became the center of the world’s lace industry housed in impressive 19th Century Victorian industrial architecture. Today, many of the former warehouses have been conserved and restored into chic apartments, shops, restaurants, bars and museums. Located in the Lace Market, considered the oldest part of Nottingham and center of the Creative Quarter, the 42-key boutique hotel is steps away from historical attractions like St. Mary’s Church, Galleries of Justice Museum and Shire Hall; as well as the cosmopolitan hub of high street shops and trendy restaurants.
Lace Market Hotel is the 6th hotel in UK to be managed by Compass Hospitality. This follows Compass Hospitality’s recent acquisition in August 2015 of the Big Sleep Hotels portfolio in Cardiff, Cheltenham and Eastbourne. Earlier this year in April, Compass Hospitality commenced its management of The Lion Hotel Shrewsbury and The White Swan Halifax. The Group’s portfolio now comprises 45 properties in Thailand, Malaysia and the UK.
Compass Hospitality’s President & CEO, Harmil Singh said, “We are very pleased to add the iconic Lace Market Hotel to our portfolio in UK. In the few months we have commenced our management of the other five hotels, they have all achieved strong performance. We are confident of the market potential in the UK and will continue to seek out acquisitions and opportunities in the UK.”
Matthew Welbourn, Executive Vice President of UK Operations, added, “Our hotel staff in Lace Market Hotel share Compass Hospitality’s excitement on the re-opening of the hotel. We are committed to raise the market profile of the hotel.”
