ISS London Sunborn hotel yacht - bringing business to London Docklands

27 October 2014 | Updated 01 January 1970
The Sunborn London Hotel Yacht is a fabulous addition to ISS Hotels portfolio.
Sunborn London is the city's first luxury yacht and ISS are proudly operating all services. 

Supporting East London’s business and residents

Sunborn London moves to her final berth in East London’s Royal Victoria Docks alongside the ExCeL Exhibition centre later in April. The arrival brings more business, attention and community opportunities to East London’s Dockland area. 

To support the local community, ISS partnered with the East London Business Alliance (ELBA) to recruit more than 50 percent of its staff for Sunborn London.  A full range of hotel roles - from housekeeping to staff reception – have been filled by local residents to create the new environment. In addition, ISS is one of the first employers in the area to pay hotel staff the London Living Wage.
