Our collaboration with THAT Group and the opportunity to incorporate Ray Kelvin’s design expertise has created a posh getaway for travelers to create memorable experiences.”

Local craftsmanship and design influences are visible around the hotel, including specially curated items celebrating the best of British design. Artworks include a collection of local Poole Pottery, one of the largest on public display, and Colin Moore’s mural of Poole Harbour, which hangs in reception.

“No ordinary design, the exquisitely curated hotel incorporates refined aesthetics with a quirky edge. Sitting perfectly alongside the innovative design and technological industries of the area, it’s a real head turner. We’re excited to welcome guests and hope they take some time to put their feet up, relax and enjoy their surroundings.

“Finally, we would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this impressive project over the four year period, your dedication is appreciated.”

Featuring eight unique meeting spaces and one of the largest ballrooms in Bournemouth, capable of hosting more than 350 guests, the hotel has collaborated with THAT Group to create a series of themed rooms capturing the pace, creativity and diversity of business.

Fresh, seasonal sharing plates sit alongside dishes from the tandoor and stone oven. Meanwhile, Bournemouth’s highest bar, LEVEL8IGHT The Sky Bar, promises to wow guests.
