Sat and Amanda Bains, the owners of two Michelin starred Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham, have unveiled a new look for the property’s seven bedrooms.
The refurbishment, overseen by Amanda Bains, was completed to give the rooms a brighter feel with new smart TVs new wallpaper and old-school favourites such as Topic, Scampi Fries and Fry’s Chocolate Cream featured in the suites.
The bedroom stock comprises three double bedrooms, two superior bedrooms and two suites.
Amanda Bains commented: “I always try to think like a guest and put as much thought into our rooms – and how people use them – as possible. We’re not a hotel, and, typically, guests stay with us for just one night – for dinner, bed and breakfast – so the rooms need to meet expectation but be functional, clean and comfortable. We want people to arrive, have a nice bath, enjoy our Aesop products, come and have dinner and then have a good night’s sleep – and, of course, an incredible breakfast.”
Prices have increased – for the first time in four years – but Amanda stresses that they ‘are not a country house hotel’ and are ‘still very conscious of our location.’
As well as the new bedroom look, two new beehives to make their own honey.
Sat Bains comments: “We introduced two beehives at Restaurant Sat Bains in April with the idea of creating a unique local honey for the restaurant from the banks of the River Trent and its surrounding wildflowers. We brought in two beekeepers to look after the hives and they set them up behind our line of pine trees, which give them shade and protection but also a free flight out of the hives and straight into the wild.
Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham opened in 2012 and its dining options include a Chef’s Table, Kitchen Bench and development kitchen, Nucleus and offers a seven or ten course tasting menu.
Awarded a Michelin star in 2003, the restaurant became the first in Nottingham to do so and was promoted to two stars nine years later in 2012.
