Having been inaugurated into the Crowne Plaza portfolio the hotel promises to deliver the quality and trusted service synonymous with the Crowne Plaza brand but with a very distinct identity.
Described as “a celebration of both town & country” the 138-bedroomed four-star hotel, spa and events centre is set at the base of the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty and is just 17mins from the centre of London providing the ideal weekend retreat for city dwellers seeking an escape, or business trip base.
The Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross will boast an impressive list of individual parts adding up to one unforgettable experience.
Introducing the world’s first BMW-designed meeting and events space the hotel will provide the perfect venue for weddings, conferences or events. This 6500sqm ‘styled with substance’ space will feature two 200-350-person capacity conference spaces, two 170-260-banquetting space, 6 meeting rooms, Creative Attic, breakout bar and landscaped garden.
1269; the year the neighbouring town of Beaconsfield was first given a charter allowing an annual market for trading livestock, will also provide the name and inspiration for the hotel’s destination bar and restaurant. Opening in Summer 2015, 1269 Restaurant & Bar will specialise in livestock, game and butcher-style preparation. Signature dishes created by award-winning Head Chef Dean Crews, previously of the Charing Cross Hotel, include Buccleuch Estate Beef, aged for 28 days in 1269’s in-house ageing room and cooked authentically on a charcoal Josper grill and 1269’s speciality cured smoked salmon. Designed by SuperFutures, the team behind Chotto Matte and Barrafina, the statement pieces of the restaurant will be a freshly hung meat display, a Whisky vault and a bourbon focused drinks menu to rival any London bar.
