Northcote, the luxury boutique hotel with a Michelin star restaurant in Lancashire, has announced that it has joined Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ UK portfolio.
Sister hotel to The Stafford London; a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Legend Collection and part of Stafford Collection, Northcote will be the newest experience available within Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ L.V.X. Collection, which offers guests exceptional properties in vibrant cities and resort destinations, featuring the finest accommodation accompanied by attentive and engaging personal service.
Nestled on the edge of Lancashire’s picturesque Ribble Valley and surrounded by miles of unspoilt English countryside and pretty villages, Northcote is the perfect country hideaway retreat. With 26 imaginatively inspired guest rooms and famed for its Michelin-starred restaurant headed up by Lisa Goodwin-Allen – this is country house living with none of the fuss.
Stuart Procter, Chief Operating Officer of Stafford Collection, parent company of Northcote and The Stafford London said of the new partnership: “We are delighted to continue to work with Preferred Hotels & Resorts and to align Northcote with the brand’s prestigious L.V.X. Collection and internationally renowned hotels such as Montage Beverley Hills and Baccarat Hotels & Residences New York.
“Through this prestigious partnership, our guests and travel partners will benefit from Preferred’s global suite of enhanced offerings including the latest technology and a global network of travel sales experts.”
Brenda Collin, Managing Director for the UK, Ireland, Nordics and the Netherlands at Preferred Hotels & Resorts, reflected on the partnership with a focus on shared values telling us: “We are thrilled to welcome Northcote to the Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ global family, and we look forward to nurturing a strong partnership based on the mutual values we share, endorsing authentic, independent, and experiential travel.
“Northcote, a quintessential British retreat in the heart of the Lancashire countryside, is a superb latest addition to our diverse UK portfolio, and we look forward to promoting its award-winning Michelin-starred restaurant and wine list, renowned cookery school and special access to Stonyhurst College, to our guests around the world.”
H&C News would like to congratulate the Stafford Collection and Preferred Hotels & Resorts on the partnership of two hospitality brands that seem to be a very complimentary fit. We look forward to reporting on progress, not least the annual Obsession, one of Europe’s premier gastronomic events.
