Eight brand new rooms are now available to guests of London’s Georgian House Hotel, famously home to four mysterious Wizard Chambers and Enchanted Chambers, as the 60-bedroom boutique hotel unveils £100,000 worth of new bedrooms in the final stage of a three year, hotel-wide interior design refresh. Refurbishment works, completed by hotel owner Serena von der Heyde, include both structural and decorative improvements, with the chosen colour palette showcasing some of Farrow & Ball’s timeless hues. This latest interior update brings all rooms within the family-owned hotel, built in 1851, to the same elegant and stylish finish as all other bedrooms, suites and apartments.
Speaking of the renovations, which she self-funded and planned in collaboration with interior designer Diana Holmes, Serena von der Heyde said: “Our long term plan is to reach 5 star guest accommodation status, and so this move to improve quality and space is an important part of the journey. The bespoke nature of the rooms reflects our commitment to highly personalised experiences and service.
We are making a beautiful and unique place which is in tune with the 1850s heritage, but our design is highly creative. In every room guests will find details that catch the eye, design that inspires, something beautiful. My vision is for a hotel where the experience of staying is an important part of the experience of London.”
To appeal to the family market and those wanting more space, two top floor bedrooms have been combined into one large room, featuring two double beds. Seven further bedrooms have had their original chimney breasts uncovered and restored to reveal their former splendour, often in the form of marble fire surrounds and mantels, and original Victorian tiles. The en-suite bathrooms adjoining these rooms have been enlarged and completely redecorated with three of the bathrooms now boasting full size baths, including a free-standing polished aluminium bathtub from SW1 Bathrooms.
It was of the upmost importance to owner, Serena von der Heyde to integrate contemporary design into the historic idiosyncrasies of the building and the rooms have been designed and decorated individually depending on the light, size and original features. Each of the rooms reflect Georgian House’s attitude to their guests; everyone is different and the rooms should be too.
The Georgian House Hotel continues to go from strength to strength, offering guests an individualised, boutique experience in a cosmopolitan, central location just minutes from Victoria Station, London.
