Malmaison Group is "close to doing a deal" for its first Hotel du Vin property in Stratford-upon-Avon, CEO Gary Davis told Boutique Hotelier.
“As with a lot of Hotel du Vins, these are old Georgian townhouses we’re going to convert and expand on the back,” Davis said, adding that the property is likely to open by the end of 2014.
Malmaison Group, which operates Hotel du Vin- and Malmaison-branded hotels, is also seeking potential buildings for Hotel du Vin’s London debut.
“We’d also love to get a couple of Hotel du Vins in London as we’re not there with that brand yet, it would be a great market for us. We’re looking at various options in terms of old, historic buildings,” Davis revealed.
The group’s expansion is the result of a multi-million pound cash injection from its new owner KSL Capital Partners.
