Black and White Hospitality Signs Up Landmark London Hotel
Black and White Hospitality has now taken over the day-to-day operation of the 29-bedroom Lansbury Heritage Hotel which is located close to Canary Wharf. It will also provide strategic management advice for the hotel in order to optimise the venue’s profitability.
With a proven track record of delivering excellence through its personalised and result focused approach, the addition of the four-star, boutique-style hotel is seen as a major coup for the business that was founded by Chairman and CEO Nick Taplin.
Specialising in the management of both branded and independent hotels, the firm’s portfolio spans from limited service hotels through to luxury full-service hotels with conferencing, events, health clubs, spas and restaurants.
Led by Hotels Managing Director, Shezan Aslam, the Black and White team will now manage all elements of The Lansbury Hotel’s operation.
Nick Taplin said: “To add such a major London-based venue to the Black and White portfolio really is a fantastic achievement and we’re naturally delighted to have been brought in to help the owners maximise the hotel’s profitability.
“This is the second London-based hotel that we now manage with a third to follow in Q1 2019.
“We work alongside some of the world's leading brands including the InterContinental Hotels Group, Hilton Worldwide, Wyndham Worldwide and of course Marco Pierre White. The Lansbury is a perfect fit for the expertise we have at Black and White and is not too dissimilar to some of the other properties we currently manage.”
A beautifully restored historic Grade II listed building, The Lansbury, which also has a spa and restaurant, is a short walk from Canary Wharf.
Surrounded by leafy churchyards and Grade I listed buildings, the hotel’s history can be traced back to the 17th Century when the East India Company built its first chapel and almshouses on the site in 1628.
With its landmark octagonal domed tower, the hotel is now the centre point of this highly protected conservation area.
Shezan added: “The Lansbury is an iconic building in the infamous canary wharf. We will now work closely with the hotel’s owners to improve its all-round operation, revenue and profitability.”
