Stocks Hotel is delighted to announce their membership of the Châteaux & Hôtels Collection. This is the French leader of independent charming hotels and gourmet restaurants and gives Stocks Hotel a greater presence in the increasingly important French market for the Channel Islands.
Paul Armorgie, General Manager of Stocks Hotel says, “Stocks has an excellent reputation and presence in the Channel Islands market, and since the renovation of our hotel in 2010 we have an ever growing market share within the UK also. French visitors to Sark have always been important and we are thrilled to have become members of Châteaux & Hôtels Collection to enable us to expand within the French and European market“.
Châteaux & Hôtels Collection, presided by Monsieur Alain Ducasse, is a predominately French based group of hotels. In total just under 700 charming hotels and fine dining venues make up the Châteaux & Hôtels Collection Group with the majority being in France together with a small select group of other hotels having been invited to join from as far afield as Italy, Latvia, Morocco, Switzerland, the Island of Reunion and now Stocks Hotel in Sark.
“Chateaux & Hotels Collection is pleased to be working closely with Stocks Hotel in Sark, our first partner hotel in the Channel Islands. The quiet luxury and ambience of Stocks provide the perfect match with our other privately owned, high quality hotels across Europe” explains Timothée de Roux, Deputy Director General of Châteaux & Hôtels Collection in Paris.
“For small independent hotels aiming to provide the highest quality of service, accommodation and food and beverage, being members of a renowned group such as Châteaux & Hôtels Collection is absolutely invaluable“, confirms Paul Armorgie.
Paul continues, “As one of the only two independently owned hotels on Sark, striving to continue to improve our guests experience at Stocks and in Sark, the benefits of the membership of a group such as Châteaux & Hôtels Collection both as regards market penetration into France and the opportunities to discuss our business challenges with our peers are enormous. We look forward to our membership of Châteaux & Hôtels Collection being something which regular and new guests will see the benefits of for themselves as well our hotel.”
