A boutique hotel in South Kensington has unveiled the results of its extensive refurbishment.
54 Queen’s Gate, a Grade-II listed Edwardian property in the capital, has now given a complete makeover to its 24 bedrooms, bar and public areas and will reopen at the end of the month.
The new look has been spearheaded by designers A & J D’alton, who recently oversaw the refurbishment of Cotswold House Hotel & Spa in 2016.
Each room takes inspiration from the area’s most famed former residents such as Alfred Hitchcock and Oscar Wilde.
The designers have also retained the property grand staircase, lofty ceilings, vast windows and public spaces flooded with light.
“We are delighted to have been able to both enhance our offering, as well as usher in a bold and exciting new look for the property”, added general manager James Mehinick. “The aim is to provide something different for those visiting Kensington, an attractive and unique option for guests who want seclusion, while maintaining a host of London’s foremost sights on their doorstep.”
The hotel has been owned by Moteia Ismail and his family since 2006.
