Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland have announced the opening of their new Leonardo Royal Hotel Southampton Grand Harbor Hotel, on January 30th. The new operators have decided to preserve the timeless style and personality of the establishment previously known as Hotel Grand Harbor, implementing the customer service characteristic of Leonardo Hotels.
Located in the center of the city, specifically on West Quay Road, Leonardo Royal Hotel Southampton Grand Harbor was originally opened in 1994 by De Vere. This impressive four-star establishment has 173 rooms and suites, in addition to the unique Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill. This establishment serves delicious food throughout the day with the opportunity for diners to enjoy the outdoors on its terrace during the warmer months. The restaurant offers succulent steaks, delicious seafood and a variety of timeless culinary classics.
The hotel also has 13 spaces for meetings and events, including the Mayflower room that can accommodate up to 500 people, making it the largest event space in the city. The place is easily adaptable and is perfect for any occasion, to celebrate from conferences to galas, awards ceremonies and weddings, having access to cars. For more intimate ceremonies or civil weddings, the hotel also has a variety of spaces and packages that adapt to the clients.
In 2019, the Leonardo Royal Hotel Southampton Grand Harbor spa will be reopened with new packages and products for guests to enjoy the luxury French beauty brand Caudalie. The hotel also has a very popular leisure center, which houses the largest pool in the center of the city, open to private partners.
As one of the closest hotels to the cruise terminals, located in front of the sea, it will continue to offer exclusive packages for passengers to enjoy a stay in style before and after the cruises.
Jason Carruthers, Executive Director of Jurys Inn & Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland, commented: «We are delighted to expand our portfolio in the UK with this renowned hotel in Southampton, whether it’s a weekend getaway or a one-night stay. Evening before leaving on a cruise or relaxing afternoon at the spa, we are pleased to welcome locals, old and new guests to experience our new hotel. »
