Firm focus on green initiatives for Richmond Hill Hotel’s £6.7m refurbishment


Richmond Hill Hotel is currently undergoing a £6.7m renovation and is implementing a series of new green initiatives as part of its redevelopment.

The townhouse, which is the sister property to The Grand Brighton, is giving its 144 bedrooms a makeover, with 69 of its Georgian rooms redesigned with a nod to the local history and character of the area to complement the hotel’s Hill Collection rooms.

The refurbishment programme has been devised by K&H Design, with bedrooms featuring Heal’s king-size beds with furniture commissioned to fit within each of the individual room styles.

Richmond designer blacksmith Joshua de Lisle has been commissioned to create bespoke detailing in the bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.

As part of its environmental commitment Richmond Hill Hotel has implemented 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 and each of the Grade-II listed windows have been sympathetically restored and repurposed to retain heat.

A new F&B outlet is also being reworked into an all-day dining destination, designed by Russell Sage Studio.

The new look is expected to be completed this year.

Diane Tapner-Evans, general manager at Richmond Hill Hotel, says: “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.”
