venue bustling with life and taste, a true

social media platforms the Bonnington
utilizes to stay in touch with guests and to
listen and respond to feedback – the
Bonnington truly is “all about you”:

Apart from a homepage, the hotel maintains
a
blog and a Facebook page. Alternatively,
you can also follow the Bonnington Jumeirah
Lakes Towers on
Twitter or connect to the
hotel on
Plaxo.

The Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers is
also one of the first, if not the first hotel in
Dubai to feature two high-speed car lifts
serving the tower’s five underground parking
basements.
Located close to the city’s major business
and leisure hubs, the Bonnington Jumeirah
Lakes Towers is looking forward to
welcoming guests in style and continuing the
Bonnington’s tradition of over a century of
unparalleled hospitality.

The history of the Bonnington Group goes
back to 1907, when the Bonnington
Bloomsbury opened its’ doors in central
London. At that time, the Bonnington was the
first hotel in London to be built using a steel
structure.

The Bonnington Bloomsbury has been proud
holder of both, the Investors in People (IIP)
and “Hospitality Assured” awards for many
years and was also one of the first hotels in
central London to offer WIFI Internet access
free of charge to all its’ guests in all hotel
areas.

Nowadays the Bonnington Group with its’
head office in London covers a wide
spectrum of activities ranging from the
hospitality to property investment,
development and real estate. The Group’s
total assets exceed GBP 300,000,000.

The Group operates superior quality
properties in London, Dublin, Wicklow and
Eastbourne, more than 600 rooms
altogether, with an emphasis on guest
comfort and satisfaction. The Group’s hotels
continue the “firsts” in the tradition of the
original Bonnington hotel, e.g. the
Eastbourne property just opened “Pebbles
Spa” – Eastbourne’s first seaside luxury full
spa and with treatment rooms - the perfect
place for relaxation and rejuvenation.

The Group is currently working on a new
project in West London, The Bonnington
Gillette Corner. Formerly the European
Headquarters of Gillette, the building is
located on the A4 between central London
and Heathrow. The proposals involve the
conversion of the Grade II listed building into
a 5* hotel with 505 rooms and a business
campus including 47,000sq.m of flexible
business space, to provide hotel and office
accommodation for business people
working and visiting West London.

The Coat of Arms which bear the Latin
legend ’Semper Acceptus’ meaning ’Ever
Welcome’, underscores the group’s
commitment to hospitality as do many other
elements such as the red elephant at the
crest of the Coat of Arms and the supporters
on either side of the shield, in this case the
gold beaver and badger. Both animals are
famous for their home-making skills in
diverse habitats, which allude to the diversity
of the company both in geography and in
people. The red elephant is an Indian symbol
of hospitality and alludes to the Arms of the
London Borough of Camden, the
geographical origins of the group in
Bloomsbury. The Coat of Arms was specially
designed to reflect the Bonnington Group’s
achievement and future direction and was
awarded to the Bonnington Group by H.M.
Queen Elizabeth II.
The Bonnington Group is the proud
recipient of a Coat of Arms recognizing
a century of hospitality. Such
corporate Coat of Arms can only be
awarded to a company that is well
established, of sound financial
standing, and is a leading or respected
body in its’ field.
