Rosendale Design to bring The Dining Room to life at Independent Hotel Show 2023
Independent Hotel Show London has partnered with the Rosendale Design to bring The Dining Room feature to life at this year's event. We caught up with the team to learn more about the business and the inspiration behind this year's design.
In hospitality, Restaurants have become a stage on which the participants playout a performance that the audience is very much apart of.
The theatre, the restaurant sometimes including the kitchen, conducting the proceedings. This performance can carry on all day and all night, and is a perpetual act until the kitchen is closed and the the doors are shut. Some restaurants have open kitchens, inviting the audience to see the creations they have ordered come together, others the theatre is at the bar, seeing the bartender masterfully concoct their table’s refreshments.
Others it is about the patrons, and the food being consumed at the table. At Independent Hotel Show 2023, the stage has quite literally been set at the Dining Room! Rosendale Design, the team headed by Dale Atkinson and behind a great many restaurants and hotels around the world, have created a space for one to immerse themselves in and find their space to relax, unwind, and meet friends and colleagues. Step on stage and enjoy the show!

Why would Rosendale Design like to connect with Independent Hoteliers?
In this day and age, travellers have become far more discerning and have great expectations when it comes to their overnight stays or even simply enjoying the food and beverage facilities at a hotel, or country manor house. Excursions have not only become stays but can all be days out in which the public enjoy the facilities of the hotel for the day then return home.
The hotel has become sanctuary in some cases and others a exciting experience. Whether big or small each hotel has the opportunity to excite and ignite the imaginations of those walking through the doors, whether for a weekend away, a day at the spa, or simply just eating out. No matter what size the hotel is, they have the chance to capture the audience and make them want to explore and come back for more.
At Rosendale Design, we see each Hotel, big or small, as an exciting opportunity to work with the client to develop spaces that reflect who they are, what there brand is and help integrate the establishment within the fabric of the local community.
What does one have to keep in mind when designing space for hospitality?
The main thing to remember when designing a space for hospitality is that it is always for the people! If they are engaged or feel it is relevant then that is the first hurdle. But one’s experience of a hospitality space is based on a series movements and synchronisations of various cogs. If one cog is not performing then the entire experience can derail. So it is not only about setting a pretty stage, designers must consider the flow of a space, not only of the clientele, but that of the staff. Every aspect must come together and make the client want to return time and time again.
