The Queens Hotel and Spa Bournemouth, previously operated by Gordons Hotel Ltd, has been purchased by Nq2 Bournemouth in the group’s first venture into the hotel sector.
Nq2 Bournemouth was founded by business partners Janine Powell, Toby Barnes-Taylor MBE, Timothy de Glanville, and Georgina de Glanville, with a £3m investment planned for a complete refurbishment of the 109-bedroom hotel.
The bedrooms, two function rooms, restaurant, bar and leisure and spa facilities will all be upgraded ready for early July 2020.
The ground floor space will be repurposed to provide the hotel with a contemporary cocktail bar, coffee shop, restaurant, and conference rooms. The spa will also be rebranded.
The Queen’s Hotel and Spa will partner with Accor and be branded as a four-star Mercure Hotel following the makeover.
Karl Goebel, head of operations, says: “Our goal is to create beautiful design lead bedrooms and public spaces while combining this exceptional service. We at Nq2 Bournemouth are investors in both property and talent, and we will be working closely with our teams to bring inspired hospitality to the heart Bournemouth.”
Nq2 Bournemouth has additional plans in the pipeline for growth in the hotel sector.
