The high quality hotel tableware from Villeroy & Boch is represented all over the world. The Gainsborough Spa in Bath, UK, is yet another attractive address added to the list of establishments serving its guests on Villeroy & Boch tableware.

The Hotel & Restaurant division of Villeroy & Boch has equipped the restaurant “Johann Lafer at The Gainsborough” with Custom Made Solutions, one deriving from the elegant tableware collection La Classica Contura. The décor is inspired by domes and rotundas of Italian architecture and underlines the clear design language of the tableware with fine lines and graphic patterns. For the rectangular Modern Grace shape floral patterns have been exclusively designed, linking to the cook book “Two Friends, One Cuisine” by Johann Lafer.

The Gainsborough Spa is partnering with one of Germany’s most celebrated Michelin starred chefs and TV personalities, Johann Lafer, who lends his name to the brand new hotel’s restaurant and has been the testimonial of Villeroy & Boch for many years now. All dishes will be inspired by the award-winning cook book “Two Friends, One Cuisine” written by Lafer and the Malaysian Chef Wai, the YTL Hotels Group Corporate Chef. The exquisite culinary creations will all be served on the Villeroy & Boch hotel collections.

The Gainsborough Spa is YTL Hotels' latest addition to its international portfolio and their first hotel in the UK. YTL Hotels belongs to YTL Corporation Berhad, a Malaysian company with a portfolio of international luxurious hotels and resorts in Malaysia and Australia as well as luxurious trains like the Eastern and Oriental Express.
