Cycas Hospitality has signed a hotel management agreement to take over the management of the design-led Bankside Hotel - part of Marriott International’s Autograph Collection – this month.

The hotel was acquired by Vertiq Capital, an investor active in the hospitality sector across Europe.

Located on London’s South Bank, the 161-room hotel is a short walk from Waterloo, Blackfriars and London Bridge stations. With seven stylish suites, the well-connected property has proved a popular choice for discerning travellers since opening in 2018.

Reflecting its location in the heart of cultural London - with Tate Modern and the National Theatre on its doorstep – the boutique hotel offers an artist-in-residence programme from its dedicated ground floor gallery space as well as eclectic artwork and timeless design throughout.

Hotel guests also benefit from the popular all-day restaurant Art Yard Bar & Kitchen, a private dining room, an outdoor terrace area, gym, and four meeting rooms.

Matt Luscombe, Chief Executive Officer at Cycas Hospitality, said: “We’re proud to have added our first luxury property - the intimate Bankside Hotel - to our fast-growing portfolio, and very excited to be working with Marriott International on one of their most prestigious London hotels.

“The Bankside Hotel’s ethos of being a social hub with a passion for their community strongly mirrors Cycas’s people-focused values, and we look forward to bringing Cycas’s trademark superior service and outstanding guest experience to this culturally-vibrant part of London.”
