New St James hotel opens in Nottingham on site of Rutland Square

A new hotel, called the St James, has opened today (23 July) on the site of the former Rutland Square hotel in Nottingham.

The 87-bedroom property, which was bought a year ago, has been refurbished into a contemporary space aiming to offer a grand yet welcoming atmosphere, including chandeliers, pink marble floors and luxurious furnishings.

The 650sq ft penthouse bedroom also includes antique furniture, a baby grand piano, a Nespresso coffee machine, rain shower, and a hot tub positioned in front of the television.

The No6 bar has an extensive cocktail list, and there is also a library housing over 400 books. There are also several event spaces with views over Nottingham Castle, including one with capacity for 200 guests, intended for weddings, launches and conferences.

The hotel, whose general manager is Richard Johal, also has its own gallery showcasing art from local young artists, and is planning to host regular events including art exhibitions.

The hotel's interior designer Harjeet Johal explained that the majority of the hotel's materials had been sourced from within 30 miles of the hotel.

He said: "The brief was to create a truly unique hotel which would stand apart from the local competitors as a property of character, style, service and value. It is a real showcase of local craftsmanship and produce."
