Cambridge’s Hobson House is to be given new lease of life as boutique hotel

The recently formed Rogue City Hotel Group has announced its first three UK properties, with locations in Cambridge, Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands.

Last month Business Traveller reported that a luxury all-suite hotel is to open within the converted Hobson House on St Andrew’s Street in Cambridge, and will be marketed under The Rogue City Hotels brand.

Designed by Dexter Moren Associates, the property will feature 57 rooms and a destination tea room, with “key features” of the grade II listed Hobson House set to be preserved, restored and opened up to the public.

It has now been confirmed that Dunalastair Hotel Suites (pictured below) in Perthshire is the first existing property to join the Rogue City brand, following a multi-million pound refurbishment project.

The Victorian hotel is situated in Kinloch Rannoch in the Scottish Highlands, and features fine dining restaurant Edina’s.

The third launch property for the brand will be all-suite hotel The Wellington in Glasgow, which is housed within a former Georgian courthouse and is currently listed as “coming soon”.

Rogue City Hotel Group is a subsidiary of Henly Homes Group, and was founded by Nassar Khalil, formerly director of operations at Base2Stay (now known as Nadler Hotels).

According to the group’s LinkedIn page, “Rogue City Hotels is an exclusive portfolio of luxury boutique hotels whose business focus is to create a collection of unique hotel properties, in key locations in the UK and abroad”.

“Rogue City Hotels brings an advanced concept to the hospitality sector, combining affordable luxury accommodation with a creative and guest-centric design that delivers more than just a bed in a soulless room,” the group continues.

“Rogue City Hotels best of both worlds concept is designed to surpass guest expectations with its enhanced offering, where investment is the refinement of the common commodity that is the bedroom, offering more high end facilities guests want, complimented by service excellence at affordable prices.”

“With the very best spots, in vibrant and relaxing locations, we offer a distinctive and cosmopolitan feel to our landmark heritage buildings.”
