Accor launches first Pullman hotel in the UK


Hotel provides ideal base for Australians visiting London and travelling to Paris



Accor has launched its first upscale Pullman hotel in the UK, just three minutes walk from the Eurostar terminal at St Pancras in London.

Entering the market as London's newest upscale hotel brand, the UK's first Pullman hotel is a cosmopolitan home of style and modernity, while paying homage to Pullman's rich history in luxury train travel, with the hotel's restaurant named the Golden Arrow, after one of the UK's most famous Pullman trains.

The hotel features 312 bedrooms, with panoramic views of the London skyline. Its close proximity to both St Pancras and Kings Cross stations provides easy access to numerous locations around London, the UK and the European Continent.

The hotel offers Pullman's best signature services: Welcomer, Pullman bed, docking station, free Wi-Fi, Connectivity Lounge in partnership with Microsoft®, Co-Meeting offer for the MICE market, Nespresso® services, Vinoteca by Pullman wine selection and Open Kitchen in the restaurant, Golden Arrow.

There are also 17 spaces for events and business meetings, including a 446-seat tiered theatre for arts and corporate use.

A stylish hotel for a cosmopolitan city

The Pullman London St Pancras has been designed to exude high quality coupled with comfort and functionality to suit the wide range of travellers attracted to the area.

The highly contemporary architecture and design of Pullman London St Pancras is instantly striking. The essence of modern London is captured in the design of the hotel's public areas. The design takes much of its inspiration from its location, drawing on the urban connectivity or the area, the linear images of railway life and the bustling and energetic style of modern city life, all visible throughout the hotel's creative, textured and colourful design.

A culinary journey

Guests can enjoy stylish cuisine at the 'Golden Arrow' bar & restaurant. The restaurant is named after Golden Arrow, the famous all-first-class Pullman train service that began in the late 1920s which connected London to Dover, before passengers took the ferry to Calais, before re-joining the Fl├Ęche d'Or (as the French called the Golden Arrow) for its journey to Paris. The service played a major role in opening up the UK to the cultural, business and culinary influences of France and the rest of Europe.

Chef Rees Smith centres Golden Arrow's menu around modern European cuisine and the fine wines that match. Guests can enjoy the innovative Vinoteca by Pullman wine libraries which offer a wide range of wines by the glass; all perfectly paired with a range of dishes, or to be simply enjoyed on their own.

Xavier Louyot, SVP Global Marketing Pullman said: "This new Pullman destination, which joins the network's 70 other hotels and resorts around the world, offers a vibrant, in-style cosmopolitan guest experience and is designed to cater for both business travellers and leisure guests. Set in the heart of one of the top travel hubs of the globe, it is ideal for those travelling to the continent or visiting London."
