No, we are not trying to emulate Her Majesty but we are proud of our Workham achievements and excited by the year ahead so wanted to share our news with you.Another year has gone by and what a busy one it has been. Jonathan has been spreading the word far and wide and has been away more than he has been at home, Danielle and Emma have each taken successful fam trips to Italy incorporating all our gorgeous hotels in whistle stop fashion and we have added the wonderful Fellah hotel in Marrakech to our already individual collection of characteristic hotels. The Fellah is an exciting addition to our portfolio – the property has been deemed of superior enough quality to be welcomed into the Small Luxury hotels family and has received rave reviews at PURE recently. It has already been nominated for the Mr and Mrs Smith Best Family Hotel 2014 so watch this space for more news on the Fellah next year.It`s been a year of prestigious awards for our Italian hotels too – Villa Spalletti Trivelli won the Conde Nast Johansens Award for the Best City Hotel. That`s a pretty impressive accolade for a hotel until only recently was purely a private home. A little further north, the Ca`Sagredo in Venice won the Conde Nast Award for best overseas wedding venue – the hotel oozes romance so what an ideal recognition of how perfect this hotel is for weddings as well as homeymoons. Casa Angelina also won Best Resort Hotel as voted by Travel Agents – an extremely well deserved award so thank you for your support! Casa Angelina is now closed for the winter and will reopen on 5th April 2014.Now across to Spain and France – The Majestic Hotel in Barcelona has a brand new lobby, ensuring guests an even warmer welcome and the Montalembert, our beautiful 5 star property on the left bank of the Seine in Paris, has created a JFK suite to commemorate 50 years since the death of the American president.Closer to home, don`t forget we have The George in Rye as well as the Montcalm properties and the new M Hotel will soon be opening in Old Street. More news of this grand opening to follow next year.Very many thanks for your continued support. We have an increasing amount of activity planned for next year so look forward to seeing many of you and working with you all.Wishing you very happy Christmas and all best wishes for a prosperous new year.Jonathan, Emma and Danielle – The Workham Team20131219-121626.jpg
