More than 3,000 people have booked places at new Telegraph Hotel in Coventry

MORE than 3,000 people have already booked places at the rooftop bar on Coventry’s eagerly-awaited Telegraph Hotel.

There has been a huge amount of interest since it opened its doors for the first time last week. Cocktails and tapas menus are available until mid-May when the hotel can fully open in earnest.

The opening of Generators Bar is the first step towards the hotel being able to welcome guests to stay and dine in the bars, conservatory restaurant and conference suite, from May 17.

The four-star hotel, which celebrates the mid-century style of the former newspaper offices, was made possible through a two-year £18million investment programme.

It was set to open in November, but coronavirus lockdowns and the Government’s tier system meant that was unable to happen.

Amy Windsor, the Telegraph Hotel’s general manager, said: “It was great to see people really enjoying being out in the spring sunshine in a stunning roof top setting and enjoying cocktails and drinks.

“The team have worked really hard and obviously the delays have been really frustrating to everyone, but we have had great support and really strong interest both from local people and from those further afield.”

Social distancing and other Covid safety measures are in place.
