Bespoke Hotels Group founded in 2000 by hospitality veterans Robin Sheppard and Haydn Fentum are delighted to announce they have taken over the operation of, and management contract for six new properties. The properties are a collection of historic 3+4-star inns, all in rural locations throughout the south of England ranging from 4-45 bedrooms.
The following properties will be part of the Bespoke Hotel Group Portfolio:
- The Talbot Inn, Surrey
- The Carnarvon Arms, Newbury
- The Lambert Arms, Oxfordshire
- The Horse & Groom Inn, Wiltshire
- The Black Boy Inn, Oxon
- The Saracens Head, Essex
Bespoke hotels who currently operate and manage 24 properties throughout the UK, with over £200 million of assets, are continuing to buck the downturn in hotel trading that emerged throughout 2009 & 2010. Recognised as a good group to stabilise businesses, Bespoke have enjoyed an accelerated expansion as more financial institutions have come to utilise Bespoke Hotel Group’s skills in operating and managing hotel properties that have found themselves trading with negative equity before being brought into the control of financial institutions.
“We are delighted that the restructuring of Bespoke Hotel Group in early 2010 has led to stronger portfolio expansion due to more interest from individual hotel owners and to financial institutions recognising the Bespoke Hotels offering. The six properties are perfectly positioned to apply the Bespoke Hotel blend of strong internal systems coupled with the philosophy of ‘every hotel benefits from a little individuality and a little bit of tailoring to bring out its true heart and soul’. Hotels operated and managed by The Bespoke Hotels group become better, because we bring a combination of professionalism, experience and flair that very few management companies can match. We look forward to optimizing all the properties potential.”
