The phased opening of the hotly-anticipated Beaverbrook hotel has reached a new stage, as 18 bedrooms launch in The House.
The historic property and former estate of the influential Lord Beaverbrook has been undergoing a renovation over the last five years rumoured to have cost £90m.
The property, set in 400 acres in the Surrey Hills and first built in 1870, is now set to open The House at Beaverbrook, an 18-bed hotel with interiors designed by Susie Atkinson, the creative behind Babington House and a Japanese restaurant from Taiji Maruyama, who formerly worked at Nobu in London.
There is also set to be a swanky kids club by Sharky & George.
The House’s 18 bedrooms are named after the building’s most famous guests, including Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor and James Bond creator Ian Fleming.
The opening follows on from the launch of the 11-room Garden House, which features a cookery school and opened at the end of 2016.
By the close of this year, the Coach House Spa, with six treatment rooms, a gym, indoor and outdoor pools and a deli will launch to mark the final phase in the development.
The 19th century building was previously known as Cherkley Court and was home to Lord Beaverbrook for 50 years.
New owners are Joel Cadbury and Ollie Vigors, who boast experience with the likes of the Groucho Club.
