Robin Sheppard - Chairman Bespoke Hotels

BVS has delivered significant value to us with their sales programmes and been essential to the immediate success of all our recent new hotel projects. These range from the pre-opening and continuing support of Bermondsey Square, Hotel Gotham, Ten Manchester Street, London Lodge etc.
We would have no hesitation in recommending his company to any potential client. We are indebted to their skills which have enabled us to reach high occupancy and aggressive room rates really quickly on opening new properties.

Robin Sheppard, chairman of Bespoke Hotels, was presented with the Outstanding Contribution award at the Hotel Cateys 2016.
He was honoured for a career that has spanned nearly 40 years, during which time he has run some of the UK's most prominent hotels including Bodysgallen Hall, the Lygon Arms, the Royal Berkshire and the Bath Spa.
Together with business partner Haydn Fentum, he launched Bespoke Hotels in 2001 as a management company to improve and inject value into the often-overlooked regional mid-market sector. Today the company comprises more than 170 hotels and 8,000 employees in the UK and overseas.
In the midst of building Bespoke up into the successful business it is today, Sheppard was struck down with Guillain-Barré syndrome, which affects the peripheral nervous systems and, at one point, left him completely paralysed.
He had to relearn how to sit, stand and walk as a result of losing all fine motor controls and was left with restricted mobility.
Despite a two-year recovery period, Sheppard was never going to let the illness hold him back from continuing to work in an industry that continually inspires him. Indeed, it has led him to campaign on behalf of disabled guests, who he believes are often treated like second-class citizens by hotels.
He previously told The Caterer: "There is not much chuffing joy at being disabled and rocking up at a hotel knowing you will end up being put into a basic room next to the lifts."
In order to encourage a more "joyful experience" for disabled guests, Sheppard has played an instrumental role in launching the Bespoke Access Awards, in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects. Winners of the first set of awards, with prize money totalling £30,000, will be announced next week at the House of Lords.
A gathering of 625 guests at the Hotel Cateys presentation dinner, at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London, gave Sheppard a standing ovation as he was presented with the accolade, sponsored by Diversey Care.
Sheppard was one of 18 winners at the glittering awards ceremony, which saw the 1,019-bedroom host venue carry off two awards for Conference and Banqueting Team of the Year and Food and Beverage Manager of the Year (Simon Seis).

Robin Sheppard, chairman of Bespoke Hotels, and Paul Vaughan, Bespoke Access Awards project director, explained to Business Traveller why hoteliers needed to provide a more inclusive experience for disabled guests, who were all too often subjected to "joyless", hospital-like rooms.

...
It's something that Sheppard has personal experience of, having previously suffered from the debilitating Guillain-Barré syndrome. "Ideally these should be the 'champagne supernova' rooms that give even more delight - that feel like an upgrade," he said.
He added that he hoped the initiative would help the issue to gather momentum in the wider industry.
