Coventry city centre’s new Telegraph Hotel will now open its doors for the very first time to the public at lunchtime on December 4.

After two years of construction and £15m of investment, the former Coventry Telegraph headquarters have been transformed into a luxury hotel that celebrates the cool Mid-Century style of the building.

The Corporation Street-based hotel was set to open in November, but the second national lockdown forced plans to change.

Created by Complex Development Projects, the hotel sets out to bring glamour and charisma to the Coventry hotel market featuring a large bar, conservatory restaurant, conference suite and roof top bar. 

The Telegraph Hotel features 88 individually designed air-conditioned bedrooms including loft style penthouse suites on two levels. Two panelled Board rooms are available for private dining and meetings and there’s a library of post war design and newspaper heritage.

The hotel’s most luxurious room is the Lord Iliffe Suite – named after the family who started and until recently owned the newspaper – which includes its own hot tub and terrace.

The building’s Mid-Century features and artefacts have been retained and signature period furniture and art pieces have been acquired to feature in the public areas.

There is also the spectacular Winter Garden – which is made up of 11 bedrooms overlooking a private, glazed indoor terrace only accessible from these rooms.

The hotel will be operated by Bespoke Hotels, the largest independent hotel company in the UK. 

Amy Windsor, General Manager of the Telegraph Hotel, said: “We obviously had to think long and hard about when to open the Telegraph Hotel after the lockdown and we are thrilled to be welcoming everyone in on December 4.

“There has been so much hard work put into getting everything ready and the hotel is looking too beautiful not to open our doors as soon as we can.

“This year has been an unprecedented and difficult one for all, but the Telegraph Hotel will be an escape for everyone giving them a chance to dress up, get out and experience Mid-Century glamour.

“We believe it will become an attraction in itself and will draw people to the city purely for the experience, as well as giving visitors an offer and level of service that is one of the best in the region.

“We are really excited about Forme & Chase restaurant and bar, and our rooftop bar which we believe will be a great attraction in a city that is really going places.”

Conferencing, weddings and events are well catered for with the Editors function space - capable of accommodating up to 160 guests across a range of layouts.

There are also two private rooms – the Boardroom and Directors – which can each accommodate up to 12 people for smaller meetings and private dinners.

The hotel also features its all-day bar and restaurant dining experience, Forme & Chase for a full meal, light bites, celebration dinners, afternoon tea and more.

The south-facing Generators rooftop bar overlooking Belgrade Square offers a year-round outdoor experience which is ideal in the Covid environment.
