Read all about it! Set to open in September 2020, ahead of Coventry being UK City of Culture, take a look inside the former newspaper offices turned chic and contemporary hotel

The first images and design details have been unveiled for Coventry’s newest boutique hotel, a four-star property once home to the Coventry Evening Telegraph offices. 

Operators behind the transformation have revealed the exciting first completed interiors of Telegraph Hotel –  which will bring a sleek and contemporary feel to the West Midlands city.

Developed by Complex Development Projects (CDP), the £20 million project will see the iconic 1950s building turned into a stylish 88-bedroom hotel.

Embracing its Mid-Century architecture, guests can enjoy a 110-cover restaurant and two ground floor bars, as well as an expansive rooftop bar and events space which overlooks Belgrade Square.

Set to open in September 2020, ahead of Coventry being UK City of Culture, this modern hotel is perfect for a chic way to experience the city. and is already taking bookings.

With interiors courtesy of Squid Inc, the company has taken inspiration from the building’s history as a thriving newspaper and printworks, as well as the Mid-Century architectural style for which Coventry is famed.

The project is a flagship for the city’s drive to boost the tourist economy and will be one of the major physical legacies of 2021.

Brian Harrabin, of CDP, told The Wordrobe: “The Telegraph Hotel will bring something truly unique to the region and we have looked across Europe for our inspiration. This is the first glimpse of the completed product.

“This will be Coventry’s first four-star hotel since the Hotel Leofric, which was built in the rebirth of Coventry in the 1950s.  It is apt that we are restoring a much-loved 1950s landmark building and recreating the glamour of that Mid-Century era.”
