    Luxury boutique hotel Flemings Mayfair is investing £14 million in an impressive refurbishment plan, which will see 129 new-look bedrooms, suites and apartments, alongside a new tea lounge, an intimate, sophisticated bar and brand new restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Rankin. Work began last year on the family-owned leading SLH (Small Luxury Hotels of the World) and is due for completion in the first quarter of 2016. The hotel remains fully operational during this exciting time.Bedrooms, Suites, Apartments, Penthouse & Townhouse
    The first phase of the refurbishment project is now nearing completion, which will transform 40 of its bedrooms and suites and its ten Mayfair apartments, each with individual themes and fabulous attention to detail. A selection of bedrooms, junior suites and studio suites as well as one, two and three-bed apartments – most of which benefit from a private entrance on Clarges Street or in the case of the Townhouse, a private entrance on Half Moon Street – will be finalised in June.

    Interior designers Tully Filmer took inspiration from the heritage of the hotel, returning the bedrooms to their generous Georgian splendour with three metre high ceilings and period features. The elegant bedrooms are decorated with a nod to the glamorous 1930’s, with shades of bronze and soft greys, along with bespoke furniture designed in silver stained fiddle-back Sycamore. The feel of each bedroom is serenely calm and restful with timeless detailing and quiet luxury.

    Celebrity artwork from renowned photographer Andy Gotts MBE, who has shot the likes of Harrison Ford, Kate Moss, Kylie Minogue and Robert De Niro, adorn the bedroom walls. Many of these pictures were taken at Flemings over the past six months and form part of its new private collection.

    Adding to the opulent feel of the suites, guests will be able to enjoy their own complimentary gin bar. Designed in conjunction with spirits experts and celebrated authors Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley, those wishing to unwind can choose from five gins, including Flemings’ own signature blend, created in collaboration with Shaun Rankin, and all located within specially designed gin cabinets.

    For the ultimate break, book the top floor penthouse suite, which sleeps six, and includes use of a private lift and roof terrace – great for secluded outdoor entertaining or al-fresco drinks and dining.

    The stunning Townhouse on Half Moon Street comprises seven beautifully appointed bedrooms, which can be either booked individually as suites or entirely as a whole property.

    The Drawing Room – a modern interpretation on a traditional Georgian Drawing room – created in conjunction with The East India Company, offers guests an elegant Indian-inspired space to enjoy traditional and exotic teas. The 30-cover space boasts hand-painted De Gournay wall panels and a library stocked with books from Assouline.

    New for 2016
    The second phase of the development will commence in January 2016 and is set to see the remaining hotel rooms revamped alongside the complete refurbishment of the bar and restaurant areas. During this stage the hotel will again remain fully operational.

    New Bar & Restaurant by Executive Chef Shaun Rankin
    March 2016 will see the opening of a new bar & restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Shaun Rankin, who will join Flemings Mayfair as Executive Chef. Shaun has been Jersey-based for twenty years and has held a Michelin star for 11 years, with Bohemia and now his own Jersey restaurant, Ormer. He is highly-acclaimed and is one of the original Great British Chefs. His new venture with Flemings Hotel will run alongside his current Jersey restaurant and he will be a great addition to the Flemings family.

    Originally opened in 1851 and converted from 13 Georgian townhouses, award-winning hotel Flemings Mayfair offers unrivalled luxury accommodation in one of London’s most prestigious neighbourhoods – just steps away from Green Park, Piccadilly and a short walk from Buckingham Palace.
