Plan for Stratford-upon-Avon Hotel du Vin ‘well received’


The plan for a new Hotel du Vin in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon has been “positively received” by locals in the area.

The public consultation, which was held this week by the boutique hotel brand, Stratford town Trust and developers S Harrison, revealed that the new 48-bedroom hotel will generate £18m of economic activity in the town.

The conversion of two Georgian townhouses to create the new boutique at 7 and 8 Rother Street is due to open in 2016 and is expected to provide around 45 full-time and 20 part-time jobs in the community.

Chris Hale, design manager for developers S Harrison, told the Stratford-upon-Avon Herald the plans were positively received and people welcomed the positive effect a Hotel du Vin would have on Stratford.

Nick Halliday, chief operating officer for Hotel du Vin, added: “We’re very much a leisure brand, and although we have a corporate entity, somewhere like Stratford is ideal for us.”

The hotel will also include meeting and private dining rooms, a Bistro and a separate banqueting room with space for 80 diners. It is the brand’s fourth property under development in the last 18 months.
