About Us

Bespoke Hotels is a mid-size, independent hotel management company. We own a small number of hotels and partner with an ever-increasing number. Every agreement we have is Bespoke by name, and bespoke by nature.

The group was founded in 2000, by Haydn Fentum and Robin Sheppard and has consistently grown to the point where we now manage over 6,500 hotel rooms, 3,000 employees and £500 million of assets.

We optimise operational performance.

At one end of the spectrum, we have conceived brand new hotels and restaurants from scratch – such as Hotel Brooklyn, The Bermondsey Square Hotel, Hotel Gotham and the Telegraph Hotel. But we have also supported hundreds of hotels with a broad range of operational projects, encompassing sales, marketing, finance, purchasing, HR, training.

We genuinely believe that – with the experience, expertise and network of professionals we have acquired across 20 years and close to a thousand hotel projects – we can add value to any hotel.

It’s better to be bespoke.

It’s a good line – because it’s true on every level. Every hotel benefits from a little individuality, a little bit of tailoring to bring out its true heart and soul.

The hotels that join the Bespoke Hotel Group become better, because we bring a combination of professionalism, experience, flair and individuality that very few management companies can match.

If your hotel, group or property investment could do with a bespoke approach, then our door is open. Whether your mandate is to develop a new concept, or to turn round a grand old name, you’ll find that we talk hotel-business with the enthusiasm of young tyros (despite each having 25+ years’ experience).

We passionately believe that it’s better to be bespoke.

Bespoke principles.

Our management proposals are bespoke – tailored to your property and its essential character and environment. We don’t do one-size-fits-all contracts or try to make the hotel fit a pre-determined template or brand.

The key principles of bespoke hotel development, operation and management are:

Bespoke expertise.

bespoke-expertise-sales

Sales

Whether it’s a sales blitz to past, present or future users, Global Distribution Systems or conference agents to key bookers, we know who to talk to, how to talk to them and how to improve market share. All through a systematic and reliable process, with supervision and mentoring provided by our central team, and sophisticated CRM of our huge database of hotel users.

bespoke-expertise-marketing

Marketing

It’s a busy, busy world out there. To stand out from the crowd takes imagination, perseverance and sometimes a bit of courage. We can help you make your marketing budget work harder with a portfolio of online, print, promotion, PR and social media strategies that give you real bangs for your buck.

bespoke-expertise-branding

Branding

We believe that brands make a difference, though of course they must reflect the real experience of your customers. We are experts at developing strong, identifiable brands and sub-brands that underpin a coherent marketing and positioning strategy. Our clients also have the option of joining the Bespoke brand website and loyalty programme.

bespoke-expertise-operations

Operations

How to organise the efforts of the team, how to anticipate operational issues and plan costs effectively and accurately? These are regular daily tasks in which we have vast experience. We can lead where appropriate or delegate when this is more effective, in ways designed to control and optimise overall performance.

bespoke-expertise-human-resources-and-training

Human Resources and Training

Whether it is for recruitment, head-hunting or staff training, our HR resource specialises 100% in the hospitality industry, helping to motivate and develop your people. We can run focused courses in specific aspects of hotel management, using our own senior management. Or we can build individual career development packages for all of your staff.

bespoke-expertise-purchasing-and-stock-control

Purchasing and Stock Control

A single hotel can never purchase as effectively as one within a group. Buying power, group discounts, forensic cost evaluation and reviews of best practice will improve your business.

bespoke-expertise-financial-management

Financial Management

You need timely and reliable financial information at your fingertips in order to make good decisions. We introduce diligent, prescriptive reporting processes, interrogate results and monitor performance through your teams with a zealous streak. It’s how we are judged and it’s one of the key reasons why more and more hotel owners are turning to the Bespoke Hotel Group.

bespoke-expertise-advisory

Advisor

No matter if you’re navigating an exit strategy, performing due diligence and pre-opening reviews, seeking to execute a smooth business turnaround, or introducing one-off projects such as senior management or payroll reviews, our Advisory team focus on the interest of the stakeholders and are thoroughly hands on. Working without lengthy contractual terms, we can offer fee flexibility in line with your goals.

Our Team We cover every base, so you don’t have to.
