Hotel du Vin to come to Canterbury

Hotel du Vin has acquired a site in Canterbury, Kent, for an undisclosed sum.

The company which is owned by Marylebone Warwick Balfour and owns the Malmaison group of hotels, bought the site which is at the Tannery redevelopment.

The Tannery includes approximately 440 residential dwellings together with four retail/commercial units and a bar-restaurant.

Hotel du Vin plans to operate the converted former warehouse on the site as a 40-bedroom hotel which is due to open in 2010.

Bruce McKendrick, managing director of Hotel du Vin, said the group was "delighted to bring the brand to Canterbury".

He added: "In addition to offering luxurious bedrooms it will be a great place for locals to meet, eat and drink."

The purchase is the group's second this year, both were handled by Christie & Co. In January it bought the 22-bedroom St Andrew's Golf Hotel in Scotland.

Hotel du Vin was established in 1994 and has a portfolio of 11 individual hotels including properties in Cheltenham and Glasgow.

A further three Hotel du Vin openings are planned for this year in Edinburgh, Newcastle and Poole.
