UK: Housed in a pair of Grade II-listed Victorian townhouses, New Holgate has opened in York following a £2 million renovation and refurbishment.
Real estate and hospitality developer Nick Bradley purchased the former bed and breakfast late last year. Yorkshire firm Studio Two Interiors led the design of the project.
Many of the building’s original features have been restored with measures taken to reduce its carbon footprint, including the installation of on-site electric vehicle chargers.
Arranged over four floors, the townhouse comprises of 12 bedrooms across three room types: King, Double and Luxury Family suites. The rooms feature Hypnos mattresses, flat screen smart TVs, rainfall showers and toiletries from H2K.
Other amenities include a breakfast room and whiskey lounge and bar where the hotel is currently exploring partnerships with regional suppliers. A board room is also available for guests to work and hold private meetings and events.
Nick Bradley, owner of New Holgate said: “We are thrilled to have officially opened our doors and welcomed our first guests to New Holgate. We are proud to have brought a new addition to York’s hotel scene, creating a quirky, unique and luxurious townhouse where everyone can feel at home in our city.
“Having carefully restored the Grade II-listed buildings, working with Studio Two Interiors to design the interiors, we are delighted with how our vision of combining hotel’s heritage and bringing it into the modern world has come to life.
“Our team are dedicated to giving our guests a warm, welcoming and personal service and we look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world. We are also developing exciting plans to be able to create a space for local businesses and residents to enjoy New Holgate.”
Zoe Wheatley, co-founder and director at Studio Two Interiors said: “We are thrilled to have worked with New Holgate to design and restore the hotel.
“The design was very much inspired by York’s rich industrial history, so we are pleased to be able to celebrate the city’s heritage whilst taking the hotel to a new modernised level. We look forward to seeing the hotel continue to flourish!”
