Contessa Hotels has appointed The Design Foundry to handle regional and national PR for its hotel portfolio, following a competitive pitch.

The Design Foundry will develop and implement a communications, marketing and social media strategy for the group; which includes the only 5-star rated hotel in Liverpool City Region and the smallest 5-star rated hotel in the UK.

Claire Jones, general manager at Contessa Hotels, said:“The Design Foundry presented an engaging proposal which truly understood the Contessa brand and the needs of our boutique hotels and services. With Hillbark Hotel & Spa’s recent 5-star award from the AA, it was the perfect time to express what Contessa has to offer and we look forward to working closely with the team.”

Helen Jones, PR account manager at The Design Foundry, said: “Our latest tourism and leisure account win demonstrates our wide range of expertise and ever-growing consumer PR portfolio.

“We were thrilled to be selected by Contessa Hotels and look forward to delivering a dynamic multi-media campaign for the group.”
