New Village Hotel Club for Basing View

Basing View will be adding a 153-bedroomed business class hotel to its long list of amenities with the arrival of a new Village Hotel Club, to be located on site. It will also include a business and events HUB, a state-of-the-art health and fitness club, bar and restaurant, plus a Starbucks Coffee Shop.

Already the location for a wide variety of organisations, this 65-acre mixed-use urban development, half of which will be in a new enterprise zone from April next year, has undergone major redevelopment and transformation, creating a modern, sustainable, commercial community situated within the town centre.

With all the amenities of the high street a short walk away, Basing View has all the advantages of a town centre location, with shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment venues literally on the doorstep, combined with the landscaped environment and ease of access usually only to be found in out-of-town business parks. It is located a short walk from the mainline rail station and just five minutes’ drive from Junction 6 of the M3.

Iain Stackhouse, Head of Property at Village Hotel Club, commented:

“We are committed to delivering a business class hotel at Basing View and building on the success of our 28 existing hotels across the UK. We have an aspiration to double that number over the next five years and a Village Hotel Club at Basing View represents an important step towards achieving that ambition.”

The programme of continual renewal and improvement of this urban business quarter is attracting new companies of all sizes, from start-ups to corporate headquarters. Recent newcomers to Basing View are the UK’s largest Waitrose John Lewis at home combined store and Network Rail.

Cllr John Izett, Cabinet Member for Property and Development at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, added:

“In Basing View, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is creating a leading commercial destination which will rival other major centres and stand out as a regional centre of excellence.”

“The arrival of a business class hotel on Basing View is an important addition to its existing amenities and helps make it an even more viable and desirable commercial location. Not only will it meet the demand for somewhere for visitors to stay on Basing View close to the town centre, the facilities it brings will also add to the vibrancy of the area after the offices have closed, with a gym and places to eat.”
