Independently-owned Richmond Hill Hotel in London is to undergo a £5.6m refurbishment project, which will see its bedroom count expanded and its dining space remodelled.
The hotel, which is the sister property to The Grand Brighton Hotel, is to go ahead with a capital investment programme to take the number of bedrooms to 144, and a complete makeover of its F&B offering.
The project is due to be finished early next year.
69 Georgian bedrooms will be redesigned to complement the ‘Hill Collection’ rooms which were completed in 2016, with their new look inspired by the local character and history of Richmond.
The refurbishment programme has been devised by K&H Design, with each bedroom featuring Heal’s king-size beds and furniture commissioned to fit within each of the individual room styles.
Richmond Hill Hotel will also undertake a major remodelling of its food and beverage outlet to create a hub at the top of Richmond Hill.
Designed by Russell Sage Studio the space has been devised as an all-day dining destination.
As part of its environmental commitment the hotel has also implemented a series of sustainability initiatives in a continued effort to reduce its carbon footprint.
Energy saving features such as energy saving key systems, dimmers and low energy lighting will be installed wherever possible and each of the Grade-II listed windows are being sympathetically restored and repurposed to retain heat.
Diane Tapner-Evans, general manager at Richmond Hill Hotel, says: “I’m so excited that the project is underway and cannot wait for it to be completed in early 2019. The team have worked tirelessly to create an unrivalled reputation and now it’s time to give the town a new focus at the top of the hill.”
