The Signet Hotel Group is a newly formed partnership spearheaded by Hector Ross, whose recent CV includes The Bel and The Dragon group of country inns and the Beaverbrook Hotel and Spa.
The Mitre is a landmark hotel occupying a riverside location next to Hampton Court Bridge and Hampton Court Palace.
With origins from 1666, the property was initially used as ancillary accommodation for the palace and rebuilt in the mid-18th Century. Fast forward to 2020 and the Mitre currently offers 36 en-suite bedrooms with an “extensive” bar, restaurant and events facilities, all overlooking the River Thames.
