Richmond Hill Hotel, the London outpost of the Grand Brighton Hotel, is undergoing a capital investment programme to create one of Greater London’s foremost boutique hotels.
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 investment 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.
As part of its environmental commitment Richmond Hill Hotel has implemented a series of sustainability initiatives in a continued effort to reduce its carbon footprint. Energy saving features such as energy saving key systems, dimmers and low energy lighting will be installed wherever possible and each of the Grade II listed windows are being sympathetically restored and repurposed to retain heat. Even some of the bed throws are made using recycled plastic!
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. A place to kick back, to brunch, lunch or dine, or celebrate a milestone. The club like feel is also set to become a new space for today’s working lifestyle.
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.”
Richmond Hill Hotel is a longstanding popular destination for meetings and events due to its versatile facilities and proximity to Heathrow and Central London. At the edge of Richmond Park, the hotel affords delegates 2,500 acres of greenery and commanding views of the Thames.
