With the support of the Splendid Family, the group continues exploring and developing its collection of branded and independent properties in key cities throughout the UK.
As Yorkshire’s only five-star hotel, The Grand Hotel & Spa is a jewel in the SHG crown. Originally built in 1906 as the North Eastern Railway Company’s headquarters and a “palace of business”, this Grade II building is an iconic landmark at the heart of the historic city of York.
Already regarded as one of the north’s leading luxury hotels, a £15 million redevelopment due for completion in 2017 will see The Grand double in capacity with an additional 100 guest rooms. Further still, the creation of a new 140-seat restaurant plus improvements to the hotel spa, which is set in the building’s former vaults, will firmly position The Grand amongst the UK’s elite.
Splendid Hospitality Group has started work on the transformation of Rainbows Lodge in Reading to re-open as a new 53 room easyHotel in August 2018.
This will be the group’s first ‘super budget’ hotel with easyHotel, providing a centrally-located, fresh and very affordable choice of accommodation for business and leisure travellers to Reading.
The new easyHotel Reading will include a reception and small car park. All rooms and accessible rooms will be air-conditioned, centrally-heated and feature en-suite showers.
