Richmond Hill Hotel, is undergoing a £6.7m refurbishment programme, which will bring the Georgian townhouse to a 144-bedroom property.
Each of the London hotel’s 69 Georgian bedrooms are being individually designed to complement its existing ‘Hill Collection’ rooms. Designer blacksmith Joshua de Lisle has been commissioned to create bespoke detailing in the bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.
The refurbishment programme has been devised by award-winning K&H Design. The bedrooms will also feature Heal’s king-size beds with furniture commissioned to fit within each of the individual room styles. Deep free-standing baths or walk-in showers will also be installed.
As part of the refurbishment Richmond Hill Hotel will also implement a series of sustainability initiatives in a “continued effort to reduce its carbon footprint”. Green initiatives such as energy saving key systems, dimmers and low energy lighting have been installed wherever possible. Richmond Hill Hotel is also undertaking a major remodelling of its food and beverage outlet.
Diane Tapner-Evans, general manager at Richmond Hill Hotel, said: “Richmond has been a source of inspiration for world famous artists and writers over the years and we have used these influences throughout the design process. Our Georgian townhouse has been designed for both business and leisure guests as a space to provide solace and escape from our busy lifestyles.
“The team have worked tirelessly to create an unrivalled reputation and now it’s time to give the village a new focus at the top of the hill.”
