Historic central Leeds hotel set to become 'social hub' with £16m transformation
An ‘iconic’ hotel in the heart of Leeds city centre is set to undergo a multi-million pound redevelopment.
The QHotels Group has today announced a £16m investment in a ‘significant’ renovation of The Queens Hotel in Leeds.
Set to be unveiled in the summer, the project will include renovation of all bedrooms, as well as adding an additional 16, bringing the room total to 232.
In addition, the ground floor will be transformed to offer a range of communal areas in a bid to create a ‘social hub’ at the heart of the hotel, as well as a wine bar, outdoor terrace, coffee space and central restaurant.
The hospitality group has worked with Upperworth Studios and Iliard Design to carry out the refurbishment while aiming to preserve the building’s historic art deco features.
Richard Moore, group chief executive of The QHotels Group, commented: “It’s a real pleasure to be part of such an exciting project for the group and the city of Leeds.
“The Queens Hotel, Leeds, is a special place, with fond memories for many who have visited or stayed at the hotel. It therefore provides a wonderful contrast of positivity for everyone at such challenging times.
“We’re very fortunate to have supportive shareholders who, despite the current economic conditions, remain passionate and continue to share our vision for the hotel. We are excited about the project ahead of us and can’t wait to share the next chapter of our exciting journey.”
