Cardiff’s latest and most luxurious destination, The Parkgate Hotel, will launch in style with amazing opportunities to stay close to the action when the might of the southern hemisphere visit Wales for this year’s Autumn Nations Series.
Operated on behalf of the Welsh Rugby Union, The Parkgate is located just a drop kick from Principality Stadium and will open in time for the big autumn clashes with New Zealand, South Africa, Fiji and Australia.
New computer-generated images released to mark the launch of the hotel brand show how the development will breathe new life into two of Cardiff’s most historic landmarks – the old Post Office and County Court properties on Westgate Street.
The new hotel had the ‘working title’ Westgate Hotel, but it has now been confirmed that it will take its name from the Parkgate building that housed the old Post Office.
The Parkgate Hotel’s distinctive ‘P’ logo draws influence from the quills that would have been used on the old writing tables, with the feathers giving a subtle nod to the WRU.
Dating from the turn of the 20th Century, the Grade II listed buildings’ most striking period features have been brought out in a careful restoration that marries stylish innovation with the elegance of yesteryear.
The hotel includes 170 guest bedrooms and suites, a signature restaurant and bar, an elegant tea lounge, and a luxurious rooftop spa overlooking the skyline of the Welsh capital. It will provide alluring spaces to meet and drink, dine and relax, as well as the city centre’s finest place to stay.
