The Resident is a differentiated brand of city centre hotels in London and Liverpool. We focus on providing excellent rooms, in exceptional locations with heartfelt hospitality whilst generating attractive returns as real estate investors.
Located in carefully chosen urban neighbourhoods, our five hotels provide our guests with a relaxed setting from which they can easily immerse themselves in the city. Our attentive team members provide informed advice suggesting the best bars, restaurants, culture and entertainment in the local area, tailored to our guests’ personal requirements.
Originally known as Base2Stay, the company was founded in 2006 by its majority owner, Mactaggart Family & Partners.
The first hotel, a converted 65 bedroom Edwardian townhouse in Kensington, London, opened its doors the same year. Following the success of its original property, the brand opened its second hotel in 2010 in the centre of Liverpool, within a restored former cork warehouse dating back to the late 1800s. The Liverpool hotel has been a firm favourite in the City ever since and is regularly number 1 on Tripadvisor.
In 2013 the opening of its second hotel in London coincided with a renaming of the brand as Nadler Hotels. The Soho hotel featured award-winning neo-Georgian style in the heart of London’s most vibrant district. In 2015, our Victoria hotel opened right next to Buckingham Palace and The Other Palace Theatre, only one minutes’ walk from the Nova redevelopment, which has transformed the area with excellent bars and restaurants.
In early 2018, a shareholder led change in leadership of the company marked an evolution of the design direction for the hotels, evidenced by the opening of our Covent Garden hotel on the 4th February 2019. The 57-room hotel is set within an eclectic Edwardian building overlooking the Strand at the southern gateway to Covent Garden.
The new leadership team has built on the legacy of innovation with a name that evidenced the culture of the business and the brand. By evolving the offer and gradually introducing new service standards and systems over time, the hotels were ready to be formally repositioned as The Resident on the 4th February 2020, the first anniversary of the opening of Covent Garden.
Our next hotel, The Resident Edinburgh, is being developed and will be opening in late 2023 or early 2024 and there are other developments in the pipeline.
