British Premiere: The First Crafted Collection Hotel
The Rudloe Arms, a boutique hotel in Bath owned by celebrity British chef Marco Pierre White, has become the first hotel to join the WorldHotels Crafted Collection. It has 24 rooms in the Treetops Building, all with underfloor heating and Juliette balconies, plus 12 whimsical and whimsically decorated rooms in the main building, each with its own style. Owner Marco Pierre White was the first three-star chef in Great Britain and had a decisive influence on the gastronomy of his country. He is now the first WorldHotels GB ambassador.
Terry Dunn, Director of Business Development at BWH Hotel Group GB, said: “I have been doing very well with Marco since 2019. The fact that he is now a WorldHotels GB ambassador and that Rudloe Arms can be booked for his guests via WorldHotels.com is great for us and our brand portfolio. The WorldHotels Crafted Collection is a new breed of contemporary hotel for a new generation of travelers who crave creativity, immersive experiences and great design, Rudloe Arms has it all and more.”
