Boutique hotel opens following renovation and redesign

A boutique townhouse hotel, New Holgate, has opened its doors in York, following a £2m refurbishment.

Originally a pair of Grade II listed Victorian townhouses built in 1846, New Holgate has been fully renovated and redesigned.

Acquired late last year by local businessman, Nick Bradley, who has built his career specialising in real estate and hospitality, the property previously housed a bed and breakfast.

Arranged over four floors, the townhouse now comprises 12 individually designed bedrooms, which include three room types, King, Double and Luxury Family suites.

The interior has been designed by Yorkshire design practice, Studio Two Interiors.

The hotel also features a breakfast room, a whiskey lounge and bar and a board room where guests can work and hold private meetings.

Bradley said: “We are thrilled to have officially opened our doors and welcomed our first guests to New Holgate.

“We are proud to have brought a new addition to York’s hotel scene, creating a quirky, unique and luxurious townhouse where everyone can feel at home in our city.

“Having carefully restored the Grade II listed buildings, working with Studio Two Interiors to design the interiors, we are delighted with how our vision of combining hotel’s heritage and bringing it into the modern world has come to life.

“Our team are dedicated to giving our guests a warm, welcoming and personal service and we look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world.”

Zoe Wheatley, co-founder and director at Studio Two Interiors, added: “We are happy to have worked with New Holgate to design and restore the hotel.

“The design was very much inspired by York’s rich industrial history, so we are pleased to be able to celebrate the city’s heritage whilst taking the hotel to a new modernised level. We look forward to seeing the hotel continue to flourish.”
