Our community

Community, collaborations, and having a conscience


There are many reasons to love our SE1 neighbourhood. A peek at our Instagram account @BanksideHotel will reveal some of the unsung heroes, secret and stand-out addresses within strolling distance of Bankside. It will steer you to our favourite life-enhancing and lesser-known spots to eat, drink, shop, stop as well as some of the unexpected people and places in our community, sure to make you smile. Making meaningful connections with our neighbours and cultivating a sense of belonging is what Bankside is all about.


Our MO is to hire humans for their attitude and enthusiasm, and not just for their experience. At Bankside, we are all about connecting people who are as passionate about service as us, and who we can work with to help kickstart rewarding careers in hospitality. Partnerships with The Clink, Waterloo Job Shop and Women Returners, have helped us to recruit some of SE1’s natural hosts for positions in our hotel, and we are proud to work with charities that are improving prospects for people who are otherwise disadvantaged.

At Bankside, having a considerate company culture is critical, and working with suppliers and organisations that help us demonstrate a kinder, more sustainable approach to hospitality is essential.
