Dorsett Hospitality International has opened its first hotel in Europe. Dorsett Shepherd’s Bush, in west London, is the company’s 19th property, and its first outside Asia.
The hotel group currently has 18 properties in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. Dorsett Shepherds Bush is set within a Grade II-listed building, a former cinema built in 1923.
The seven-storey hotel contains 317 Chinese-inspired guestrooms and 24 suites. The ground floor Executive lounge offers daily continental breakfast, wireless internet, business facilities and complimentary drinks and snacks throughout the day.
There are two restaurants — Pictures offers a brasserie-style menu with a selection of Asian-inspired dishes, while Shikumen is a fine-dining Chinese restaurant. There is also a business centre, three meeting rooms, a spa with four treatment rooms, a steam room, a sauna and a 24-hour gym.
