Brass, oak, leather, velvet, glass and marble have

all been used to perfection in this hotel which is

the pinnacle of luxury and synonymous with style

and sophistication. Interior architects Goddard

Littlefair definitely created a sense of grandeur at

the Principal Edinburgh George Street.

Design features continue throughout the seven

flexible, stunning spaces available for corporate

celebrations, conferences and meetings.

The Library is located on the ground floor and seats

up to 30 delegates for a boardroom style meeting.

This stunning space has lots of natural daylight

flowing through the arched windows. Oak

panelled walls and a stunning plaster ceiling hint

at the hotel's 18th century origins, while the WiFi

is definitely 21st century with a superfast

bandwidth of 100Mb!

The impressive Kings Hall was originally a banking

hall for the Caledonian Insurance Company.

It seamlessly blends Victorian features with a

contemporary, uncluttered high-end look where

a keynote speech or company awards ceremony

would be perfectly staged for up to 300 guests.

For a spectacular penthouse meeting or private

dining occasion, the 5th floor Forth View Suite is

superb. Accommodating up to 18 delegates for a

boardroom meeting or up to 50 guests attending

a champagne reception, the suite and large

outside terrace overlooks some of Edinburgh's

iconic landmarks.

Voted Conference Hotel of the Year 2018 and

recognised by Conde Nast Traveller, Readers’

Choice Awards 2017, the Principal Edinburgh

George Street is a top choice for events where

impressions count.

A Day in the Life...

Head Chef at Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel

The Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel

is in the heart of the city and is Southampton’s

oldest hotel, dating back over 500 years. The

Grade II listed building hosted Jane Austen’s

18th birthday and has ever since played

an important role in the city’s history.

It has recently undergone an extensive

refurbishment programme that has

blended modern convenience and

comfort while staying true to the

hotel’s history and heritage.

Located within easy access to the

city via the M3 junction 14, the

hotel is less than a mile away from

the Southampton cruise terminal.

It features 99 bedrooms and three

meeting rooms that are suitable for up

to 100 delegates. It boasts a beautiful

Signature Restaurant and Nelson’s Bar as

well as free on-site parking and free WiFi.

It’s also handy for Southampton train station

and Southampton airport, which is only four

and a half miles away.

The restaurant forms an important part of

the hotel, and its chef and his team have

just launched a brand-new menu which

showcases seasonal favourites, with British

and international flavours added in.

11


Tibor Suli has worked at the hotel for

eight years. He tells us all about the

new menu:

“I’ve been a chef for over 22 years and was

inspired to start my career by my mum who also

used to be a chef. When I was younger I would

help her in the kitchen in our home and spent a

lot of time watching her create beautiful, tasty

dishes. Ever since then I’ve had a passion for

creating the best food possible and the new

menu is a culmination of all my experiences, and

my passion for producing delicious food to the

highest standard."

What inspired you when creating the

new menu?

“I take a lot of influence from seasonal products

and I also like to create fusion dishes using new

combinations. I constantly keep updated with

the lastest food trends, keep a track of what the

Michelin star and three rosette chefs are creating,

whether it’s from their social media, their menus

online and any television programmes they

appear on and also through reading lots and lots

of cook books.”

12


A Day in the Life...

13


How would you sum up your style?

“My style is a combination of classic British with

an international influence. So the menu has

some of the British classics you would expect,

alongside a number of dishes that are from

around the world, especially France. I don’t

have a specific signature dish because my tastes

and skills are always evolving - I like to keep on

looking at new ideas, flavours and ingredients.

I think it’s good to constantly evolve and not

rely on one specific dish.”

How do you relax when you’re not in

the kitchen?

“My favourite thing to do is to watch movies

- they provide escapism and take me away from

the stress of running a busy kitchen! It can be

rather hectic but we all love it and it’s great to

see happy visitors at the end of their meal. I also

love watching football, especially Arsenal, and

playing any kind of sports or ball games. I do like

an hour or two on my Xbox as well.”

From country mansion houses

there are occasions when you want a

London Marriott West India Quay

Enter the lobby of the London Marriott

West India Quay and you're greeted with

sleek clean lines, warm wood tones and an

abundance of fine features, including a double

height glass atrium. Designed by American

architects HOK, the landmark tower building was

built to contrast with the surrounding Victorian

warehouses of London's Docklands and with its

elliptical slender shape, it resembles the curved

hull of a boat.

The 33-story hotel stands proud in its Canary

Wharf address and offers a choice of 19

top-end event spaces with a maximum capacity

of 290 delegates, an executive lounge, health

club and over 300 guest rooms. An artist in

residence programme runs so guests and

delegates can also view unique contemporary

artworks displayed in the hotel.

Meeting spaces are modern, with the latest in

audio visual equipment. Many of the rooms

have natural daylight and some have views over

the River Thames but each space will impress.

Particular favourites include the Teak Room

which seats up to 26 delegates and has views

over the quayside while The Gallery on the lower

ground floor provides stunning semi-private

space for working lunches and receptions for up

to 180 guests.

The Sculpture Gallery, Woburn Abbey

For a dramatic setting, The Sculpture Gallery

in the grounds of Woburn Abbey delivers

exclusivity with elegance and sophistication.

Designed and built in the late 1700s by Henry

Holland for the fifth Duke of Bedford, the

majestic property is surrounded by a 3,000

acre deer park and overlooks a lake and private

rose garden.

For 170 years, it was home to The Three

Graces, a marble figure group celebrated

in classical art and literature. Housed in a

neo-classical temple in The Sculpture Gallery,

in a top lit rotunda with eight antique columns,

the Graces presided in the magnificence of a

miniature Pantheon.

You won't see the marble figures today as they

are now on display at the Victoria and Albert

Museum in London but all the splendour and

majesty of The Sculpture Gallery remains.

It makes a superb choice of venue for exhibitions

and product launches, as well as meetings,

conferences and corporate celebrations for up to

250 guests. There's an excellent event organiser

to assist and superb in-house catering.

With the picturesque gardens and parkland and

dramatic event spaces, The Sculpture Gallery

really is a vision both internally and externally,

making it a top choice with many organisations.

Ascot Racecourse

A thoroughbred in the style stakes is Ascot

Racecourse. A favourite with the Royal

Family and known across the world, the

famous grandstand has been the scene of

many prestigious events held by multi-national

corporations. Its also doubled as Shanghai

Pudong International Airport in the James Bond

movie Skyfall and had a crowd pleasing scene

in My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn.

The Grandstand has an impressive 300 unique

meeting rooms, large dining venues and event

space for up to 3,000 delegates. The Parade Ring

Suite is the jewel in the crown. Welcoming up to

400 guests it overlooks the magnificent Parade

Ring, has floor to ceiling windows and its own

private terrace. An integrated PA system and TVs

for presentations are included and as well as

providing an impressive and inspiring space for

corporate meetings, it's equally at home hosting

product launches and networking receptions.

For a smaller gathering for up to 50 delegates,

the Jockeys Weighing Room in the heart of the

racecourse is unique. No less impressive are the

single Private Boxes used for a boardroom style

meeting. They're located in the Grandstand

and are fitted with a 42" flat screen TV which

is configured for data and DVD presentations

and have the added bonus of a balcony and

small kitchen.

It goes without saying service is of a royal

standard at this award-winning venue and dining

is definitely a culinary affair to remember.

The Bridgewater Hall

The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester has

been designed to ensure the very best acoustics.

Opened by Her Majesty The Queen in 1996, the

building resembles a vast sculpture. It floats

free of the ground on almost 300 earthquake

proof isolation bearings so there's no rigid

connection between the 22,500 ton building and

its foundations, ensuring the Hall's acoustics are

protected from outside noise and vibration.

The tiered seating in the auditorium follows two

well established designs, known as the shoebox

and vineyard, and cleverly draws audiences

into the stage. Taking centre stage is the Hall's

magnificent Marcussen organ. With 5,500 pipes it

completely covers the rear wall with a beautiful

blend of wood and burnished metal. Hold an

award ceremony or deliver company speeches

to 2,400 colleagues and you'll find your event is

perfectly in tune with the stylish auditorium.

The Barborilli Room and Foyer is a showstopper

too. Impressive high ceilings, stunning full length

windows and modern décor welcome guests to

exhibitions, conferences and lavish receptions

or networking opportunities held in this bright

event space.

The London Edition

We started in a stunning London lobby and

we're going to finish in another one which often

makes an appearance in the top 50 lobbies in

the world! The London Edition welcomes

shaped orb centrally hung, marble columns and

super chic furnishings. Its Basement nightclub

provides an eclectic event space with custom

lighting, a bar and state-of-the-art sound

system. It's dynamic space for a private film

screening, product launch or a fashion show.

The Penthouse is special with its wrap-around

terrace offering a 360 degree view of London.

Large and with custom designed furniture,

this private space is ideal for meetings and VIP

events for up to 50 guests.

Fine dining at The London Edition is a carefully

crafted experience from Michelin-starred chef

Jason Atherton. His Berners Tavern has become

one of London's most sought-after restaurant

reservations. Offering all day dining, the

restaurant combines modern sophistication

with historical charm to create an exciting

Tuddenham Mill, the luxurious converted

Suffolk’s Best Restaurant for the third year

running in the 2018/19 Good Food Guide.

The Good Food Guide review explains:

“Maybe it's the combination of millpond,

dipping willows, gliding swans and meadows,

or maybe the food coming out of the talented

kitchen that makes this place in an ordinary

village in an unremarkable part of East Anglia

feel like an effortlessly lovely oasis. Come for

refined food, but don't expect fluff or fuss:

Lee Bye's style is rugged, unpretentious,

un-compromisingly ingredient-led.”

Chef Patron of Tuddenham Mill, Lee Bye, added:

“We’re over the moon to be the highest rated

restaurant in Suffolk by The Good Food Guide

for a third year running. It really is a team

effort. We’re very proud of the food we serve

our guests and the special experience we

offer to everyone who visits. We’re thrilled to

be included amongst so many great Suffolk

restaurants that fly the flag for Suffolk and the

wonderful producers we have on our doorstep."

Years of history and a chic yet sympathetic

refurbishment of this traditional watermill has

provided a refreshing alternative for business

meetings. The Terrace Room is airy and

well-equipped, accommodating up to 40
