A brand new Hotel Chocolat is set to open in Orpington next week – and here’s everything you need to know.

Hotel Chocolat is set to unveil its newest concept store at Orpington Nugent on November 8, set in a 3,561 square foot unit which can accommodate up to 52 guests, with the option for a sit-in experience.

The new store will also feature a café serving Velvetised hot chocolate and other hot drinks to guests, who will be able to choose between 18 flavours of chocolate blends.

The store will also be offering chocolate consultations to help customers find their perfect chocolate match, with a range of different flavours available.

Customers who visit on the opening day will also have a chance to receive treats along with an exclusive 20 percent off the Velvetiser Café for VIP.Me card holders, which is free to join, offering customers discounts and offers on products.

Hotel Chocolat’s Co-founder and Development Director, Peter Harris, said: “We’re making retail park experiences that much more enjoyable with the opening of Hotel Chocolat at Orpington Nugent.

“Whether you’re after a relaxing drink in one of our Velvetiser Cafes or would like to explore our range of top-quality chocolate, our new concept store offers guests the opportunity to shop at a more leisurely pace.

“This latest opening is part of our plans to launch many more stores across the country in the next three to five years.

“Physical stores are extremely attractive and the beauty of being out-of-town is that we have good accessibility and parking so people can visit with ease.”
