Kudos wins £8m deal at Aldermaston Manor hotel

Caterer Kudos has made its first move into the hotel sector, with an £8m food and venue-management contract at Aldermaston Manor hotel in Berkshire.

Part of the Crown Group, Kudos will deliver a range of services as part of the five-year deal at the hotel, including conference and banqueting, restaurant dining, security, reception, cleaning, portering, sales, marketing and all room maintenance services.

Charles Beer, managing partner at Crown Group, said: "We are really excited about this contract as it demonstrates the fact that our reputation for good food and strong sales ability is growing outside of our traditional sectors.

"Our view is that good food is good food, no matter what the venue. Our food credentials, coupled with our commercial know-how, will enable us to deliver a level of service that this historic venue truly deserves."

The historic hotel, which has 33 bedrooms and four conference and banqueting rooms, dates back to 1066 and was once the home of William the Conqueror.

Michael Kingshott, chairman of Serviced Office Group, which manages the 140-acre estate, added: "We are excited to have Kudos on-board as we believe the companies will work well together to maximise the potential from the estate and transform it into a world-class business and leisure environment."
