The Telegraph Hotel
Operated by: Bespoke Hotels
The former Coventry Evening Telegraph is being transformed into the city’s first four-star hotel, due to open in 2020.
The £20m project, spearheaded by Complex Development
Projects, will see the 1950’s building turned into an 88-bedroom
hotel to be operated by Bespoke Hotels.
The Telegraph Hotel will also feature a 160-seat convention room, meeting rooms, 110-cover restaurant and two ground floor bars as well as an expansive rooftop bar and events space which overlooks Belgrade Square.
The released photographs show one of the smallest bedrooms, which has been prepared early as a sample room.
The hotel will open in September 2020 ahead of Coventry being UK City of Culture and is already taking bookings.
The bedrooms and public space interiors have been designed
by Squid Inc, highly praised for their recent work on Manchester’s
award-winning Hotel Gotham.
The company has taken inspiration from the
building’s history as a thriving newspaper and printworks, as well as the
Mid-Century architectural style for which Coventry is famed.
