The Coaching Inn Group

The Coaching Inn Group is an independent operator with a passion for transforming historic coaching inns back to their former glory, with a few modernday twists. Since their launch in 1996, they have made significant investments to breathe life back into many iconic buildings providing some of the UK’s most famous market towns with a freshly rejuvenated and welcoming central point for locals and visitors to enjoy.

Currently featuring 32 properties, a mixture of hotels and inns, the group was founded by Kevin Charity with its first property, the White Hart Boston. Over the years Kevin has developed a significant portfolio in England and Wales, and the company continues to expand, with just under 1,000 bedrooms in its stock.

They have ranked in the Sunday Times Top 100 employers several times, and are deeply passionate about managing all their properties to the highest possible standard.
