Le Westminster is back in the hands of the Group for the first time since 1972. Thanks to this hotel, Barrière can now add a whole new Resort to its portfolio. With Casino Barrière Le Touquet already providing a presence in the coastal resort, it is now positioned to offer everything from hotel accommodation to restaurants, entertainment and well-being. Furthermore, this allows the Group to cater to guests travelling for business. The acquisition of this legendary hotel dating back to the Twenties is a perfect fit for the Group and serves to emphasize genuine consistency in terms of its development policy.
Counting 115 Rooms and 4 Suites, the hotel which shall now be known as Hôtel Barrière Le Westminster bears all the Barrière hallmarks: an elegant coastal resort attracting sports enthusiasts, an exceptional location between the sea and the forest, traditional Anglo-Norman architecture, a warm and authentic atmosphere, and a prestigious Michelin-starred restaurant in the shape of Le Pavillon, not forgetting the Nuxe spa.
Le Westminster, the most beautiful hotel in Le Touquet and the north of France, can be found in the heart of the town’s most elegant neighbourhood, near the beach and the Palais des Congrès, which will be renovated in 2019 under the direction of architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Mere steps from the hotel is a 45-hole golf centre complete with 3 courses – 2 with 18 holes and 1 with 9 holes – surrounded by pine trees and sand dunes.
“We are delighted with the acquisition of this beautiful establishment, which will enrich our hotel offering. Le Touquet will become a destination on a par with the likes of La Baule and Deauville. With Le Westminster, Barrière confirms its rank among the key players in the Leisure and Entertainment industry,” said Dominique Desseigne.
