Hilton has agreed a deal with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and its strategic development partner – Queensberry – to open Hampton by Hilton Nuneaton.
The 145 room hotel will be managed by Hilton and construction is expected to start this summer, subject to planning approval. The hotel will form part of the Abbey Street mixed-use redevelopment that will include a residential component alongside workspaces, a large cinema complex, food hall and landscaped public spaces.
Hilton said the hotel will be one of the first UK hotels to feature its refreshed interior designs, including flexible social spaces. The hotel will be Hilton’s first hotel in Nuneaton, and joins a portfolio of 100 Hampton by Hilton hotels across Europe, Middle East and Africa, including recent openings in Munich, Manchester and Madrid.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, EMEA, Hilton, said: “Hampton by Hilton Nuneaton is an important addition to this ambitious town centre redevelopment, and will support the growth of Nuneaton as a regional business and leisure hub.
“Now, more than ever, hospitality can play a vital role in reinvigorating the high street, and we look forward to welcoming guests at the hotel, which joins more than 200 Hilton properties trading or under development across the UK and Ireland.”
Rob Hughes, development manager for Queensberry, said: “As the council’s strategic development partner we are delighted that Hampton by Hilton is the confirmed hotel operator for this exciting mixed use scheme and it demonstrates both confidence and commitment of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and Hilton, an international brand, to this Abbey Street regeneration project.
“The hotel is a key anchor for the scheme which includes a host of new uses to the area including residential, work space, retail and leisure.”
