New Kid on the Block

THE LOW­DOWN The first in a string of new open­ings from Na­tive, its new Bank­side apartho­tel will add to its port­fo­lio of 25 prop­er­ties. Com­pris­ing 75 stu­dios, one and two-bed­room units, the apartho­tel will fea­ture 24-hour check-in, free high-speed wifi and a com­mu­nal workspace. It is the brand’s flag­ship Lon­don prop­erty and is lo­cated on his­toric Bear Gar­dens, close to South­wark Bridge. Na­tive has two fur­ther apartho­tels in the de­vel­op­ment pipe­line: Na­tive Glas­gow, due to open in the au­tumn, and Lon­don Ware­house in Manch­ester, open­ing Jan­uary 2019.

THAT'S a FACT The prop­erty was for­merly an 18th cen­tury tea ware­house and is lo­cated a short walk from Shakespeare’s Globe and Bor­ough Mar­ket. The her­itage of the build­ing has been pre­served with pol­ished con­crete, ex­posed brick walls and the orig­i­nal arched ware­house win­dows.

THEY said it “This has been a rare op­por­tu­nity to take a beau­ti­ful her­itage build­ing in one of Lon­don’s most cul­tur­ally vi­brant ar­eas and trans­form it into a stylish apartho­tel. The launch of Na­tive Bank­side is the first mile­stone in plans to ex­pand our apartho­tel busi­ness in all ma­jor cities across the UK and will set a bench­mark for the cat­e­gory in terms of de­sign”, says Guy Nixon, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of Na­tive.

RATES Rates at Na­tive Bank­side are from £160 +VAT per night.
