The London outpost of the Grand Brighton Hotel is undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment will model 69 Georgian bedrooms in the independent hotel so that they reflect the character and history of the Richmond area…
The independent hotel is undergoing a £5.6 million refurbishment bringing the hotel to 144 bedrooms. Each of the 69 Georgian bedrooms are being individually designed with a nod to the local character and history of Richmond and will complement the contemporary ‘Hill Collection’ rooms completed in 2016.
The room interiors will draw upon Georgian characteristics whilst incorporating the standards associated with international hotel design. A Georgian colour palate has been used throughout and local artist Joshua de Lisle has been commissioned to create bespoke detailing in both the bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.
The refurbishment programme has been devised by K&H Design who is recognised for unrivalled attention to detail and will use local and British artisans and cabinet-makers. Each bedroom features Heal’s king-size beds and the furniture has been commissioned to fit within each of the individual room styles. Bathrooms will either feature deep freestanding baths or spacious walk-in showers.
Richmond Hill Hotel will also undertake a major remodelling of its food and beverage outlet to create a hub at the top of Richmond Hill. Designed by award-winning Russell Sage Studio the space has been devised as an all-day dining destination.
Diane Tapner-Evans, general manager at Richmond Hill Hotel, says: “I’m so excited that the project is underway and cannot wait for it to be completed in early 2019. The team have worked tirelessly to create an unrivalled reputation and now it’s time to give the town a new focus at the top of the hill.”
