After a record breaking year in 2014, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has announced the addition of three new establishments to its portfolio, including Notting Hill’s latest boutique, The Laslett.
The hotel consortium, which celebrates 25 years in business in 2015, plans to continue in its wave of success this year and welcomes 51-bed The Laslett in London’s Notting Hill to its ever-growing portfolio.
The Laslett, due to open in summer 2015, will be spread across five-listed Victorian townhouses on Pembridge Gardens, London. It is named after well-loved community activist, Rhaune Laslett, who organised the first Notting Hill Festival. Inspired by its vibrant local scene, the look and feel of The Laslett will evoke the sense of walking into a friend’s stylish home. The interior design is the work of architects and designers from Waldo Works, who are widely known for their contemporary British flair. Pieces from British designers such as Simon Day, Pinch and Earnest Race complement this design, whilst art and photography from celebrated local names adorn the walls.
The public space downstairs is part coffee shop, part bar-kitchen, part gallery and part concept store, with regular art exhibitions and a locally sourced food and drink selection that will evolve throughout the day.
Paul Kerr, CEO for SLH said: “This is our 25 anniversary year and we hope to welcome many new hotels to the brand from across the globe, especially in cities and destinations we don’t currently have a presence. We are thrilled to welcome the following three new hotels who all joined at the end of 2014.”
