The Stafford London opens historic Carriage House Suites fit for a king


Luxury five-star hotel The Stafford London has redesigned its historic Carriage House Suites following a multi-million pound investment.

Now the Suites have been unveiled to the public after being transformed by award-winning interior design company Champalimaud Design.

The design team, led by internationally renowned designer Alexandra Champalimaud, has created an eclectic take on the hotel’s British heritage with designs that capture the spirit and elegance of a glamourous country look.

Separate from the main hotel and set within the 380-year-old Grade-II listed building, the former stables of British nobleman and politician, Lord Francis Godolphin boast 11 stylish suites.

The focal point of each room is the tall oversized headboards and wall covering behind them that come with a brush stroke texture. Some of the suites feature fireplaces, four-poster beds and original gay hoists and mangers, as well as timbers from fighting ships.

The bathrooms are luxurious and come with heated towel racks and English toiletries created exclusively for The Stafford.

Champalimaud also transformed the hotel’s famed Guv’nors Suite, now called The Gatehouse.

Opening in May, the suite is located adjacent to the Carriage Houses and has been created as a two-bedroom, multi-level townhouse that is bookable as a one-bedroom junior suite, a two-story suite (with dining area) or as the full three-level townhouse, all connected by a private lift.

“This is a proud day in the history of The Stafford London,” said the hotel’s General Manager, Stuart Procter. “The heritage of our Carriage Houses has been honoured and updated for the modern day, with timeless touches that are sure to continue the suites’ legacy of being some of the most luxurious accommodations in all of London. We are excited to welcome guests to experience this landmark’s new chapter in the life of the hotel.”

Also, newly opened is The Stafford’s restaurant, The Game Bird, under the helm of executive chef, James Durrant.
