A historic building in Nottingham has undergone a £1.5 million transformation into a new boutique hotel, bar and restaurant, at a time when business in the East Midlands city is growing fast.

The Bentinck Hotel, situated on Station Street in the city centre, has re-opened under new management after a 12-month closure. The property, which has been completely refurbished throughout, now features 13 luxury bedrooms along with The Citizen - a 40 cover brasserie and adjoining cocktail bar.

“It’s great to see such a beautiful building brought back to its former glory”, said Ken Burt, the Bentinck Hotel’s new owner. “We are offering guests the choice of thirteen unique luxury bedrooms, all with their own modern amenities and individual features.”

The rooms, which start at £65 a night, come with flat-screen TVs, power showers, and free WiFi. The Citizen restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving up the likes of steak and sea bass.

Nottingham's profit growth

Following three months of refurbishment work, The Bentinck re-opened earlier this month. Its launch comes at a positive time for Nottingham hoteliers, who managed to increase occupancy by 4.9 per cent, to 68.7 per cent in 2013. As a result, average RevPAR in the city grew by 6.6 per cent to £37.46.

According to the latest HotStats survey,​ growth in food sales (5.4 per cent), beverage revenue (4.4 per cent) and meeting room hire (2.5 per cent), contributed to a 5.9 per cent rise in TRevPAR to £69.67.

“Being home to the Capital FM Arena, Trent Bridge, Nottingham Castle and the two football stadiums, the city has some of the best leisure venues in the county,” added Burt. “With the new train station opening soon, The Bentinck Hotel is perfectly placed to offer both short and long-stay accommodation at the gateway to Nottingham and our bar and restaurant is a great place to grab lunch or hold a business meeting.”

The Bentinck Hotel is now open on Station Street, Nottingham.
