The rooftop bar at Coventry’s new £18 million Telegraph Hotel opened its doors for the first time this week.
And more than 3,000 people have booked to experience the cocktails and tapas menu over the coming weeks through until mid-May when the hotel can open in earnest from May 17th.
The luxury 4* hotel was set to open in November last year, but Coronavirus lockdowns and the Government’s Tier system meant that was unable to happen.
Amy Windsor, General Manager of the Telegraph Hotel, said: “It was great to see people really enjoying being out in the Spring sunshine in a stunning roof top setting and enjoying cocktails and drinks.
“The team have worked really hard and obviously the delays have been really frustrating to everyone, but we have had great support and really strong interest both from local people and from those further afield.
“We have ensured that social distancing and other Covid safety measures are all in place and people have to pre-book.
“This is just the first small step in bringing the Telegraph Hotel to life – and we now can’t wait to fully open the hotel and give people a top class experience in the heart of the city.”
The Telegraph Hotel, created by Complex Development Projects, features 88 individually designed air-conditioned bedrooms including loft style penthouse suites on two levels.
The hotel features an all-day cocktail bar and restaurant dining which recreate the glamour of the 1950s retaining many of the building’s original features.
