Guest HotelsGuest Hotels, the
collection of London hotels from the founders of buy-to-let hotel brand Guest Invest,
has launched its first property in Bayswater.

The hotel is
located in Queens Gardens close to Paddington Station and the Heathrow Express,
and offers 157 rooms designed by Dream Architects in collaboration with luxury
boat builder Pendennis.

Bedrooms have
private entrance lobbies and are lined with sustainable hardwood panels which
slide away to reveal wardrobe, storage, internet access and minibar. Petit
Oiseau restaurant will be overseen by Oliver Peyton, and the hotel itself will
host regular photographic exhibitions on five of its six floors. Guests at the
hotel will also receive membership of the “Concierge Club”, offering access to
selected museums, galleries and exhibitions including the V&A and the Tate.

Nest officially
opens on September 1, but is offering introductory rates of £99 night during
August. The hotel will be followed by a second property, The Jones (also located
in Bayswater close to Queensway and Bayswater underground stations) in late
September, and The Chiswell Street Hotel near Moorgate station next summer.

Guest Invest
allows investors to buy a room in one of it two London Hotels (Blakes in South
Kensington and Guesthouse West in Notting Hill) in return for 50 per cent of
the room’s income, and up to 52 night’s free accommodation per year.
