About Red Carnation Hotels
Red Carnations story begins in 1950 when the Founder and President of the group, Bea Tollman, started a chain of hotels in South Africa, before moving to South Africa in 1975 before eventually buying the Chesterfield and Milestone Hotel in London, the latter of which is now their flagship establishment. With 17 locations in the Red Carnation portfolio, it is now part of The Travel Corporation (TTC), which itself has 30 international travel destinations and an array of travel companies. Red Carnation Hotels champions itself as a bastion of hospitality, respect and memorable experiences, both for its clientele but also its staff, meaning their staff loyalty now exceeds the industry average. It attributes this to the love of hospitality and good cuisine of its founder Bea, shown by her publication of a book of her ‘all time favourite recipes’ in 2009. They also pride themselves on giving back to local communities, making an asserted effort to contribute to local communities through various charitable organisations, which they also list on their website.
Here’s a succinct overview of a few of the 17 hotels
Services of Red Carnation Hotels
Red Carnation has one central website address from which you can see the locations of their hotels, and book a room in a chosen hotel, or alternative you can be taken to those individual hotels’ websites. It then also divides the strengths of its hotels into a set of experiences, which include accommodation, food and drink, spa and well-being, with what it sees at the hotels that best embody those aspects presented to the customer, such as Ashford Castle for one of the best views or their South African hotels for a spa treatment. The final set of services offered on their website is a series of London offers, such as tours or river cruises. Alternatively, it is possible to approach the booking not from a location point of view, but by occasion, such a wedding, conference or other celebrations for which the website then recommends locations before allowing the customer to book for specifics.
