Restaurant Sat Bains

Sat and Amanda Bains, owners of two-Michelin-starred Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms on the outskirts of Nottingham, have unveiled a new look for their seven, individually styled bedrooms and suites. The refurbishment, overseen by Amanda Bains, was completed to give the rooms, which comprise three double bedrooms, two superior bedrooms and two suites, a luxurious, bright and comfortable feel.

All the bedrooms now contain new smart TVs, while cumbersome four-poster beds and heavy furniture have made way for more a streamlined look. The rooms include WIFI and air conditioning too. Wallpapers have been carefully chosen to give the rooms a sumptuous feel, and lighting has been upgraded. Guests booking the suites are treated to old-school favourites such as Fry’s Chocolate Cream, Topic, Picnic, Fish ‘n’ Chips Crisps, Scampi Fries and Salt and Vinegar Squares. The suites also offer a bottle of gin, which is chargeable, presented with an ice bucket, limes and handsome glassware. The suites also now include GHD hair tools too.

Amanda Bans commented: “I always try to think like a guest and put as much thought into our rooms – and how people use them – as possible. We’re not a hotel, and, typically, guests stay with us for just one night – for dinner, bed and breakfast – so the rooms need to meet expectation but be functional, clean and comfortable. We want people to arrive, have a nice bath, enjoy our Aesop products, come and have dinner and then have a good night’s sleep – and, of course, an incredible breakfast.”

While prices have increased – for the first time in four years – Amanda has kept them to a minimum to ensure Restaurant Sat Bains is still accessible to people. “We’re still very conscious of our location and that we’re not a country house hotel.” In addition to the bedroom refurbishments, in the grounds of Restaurant Sat Bains, Sat and Amanda have recently introduced two beehives in order to make their own honey.
