Richmond Hill Hotel receives multi-million pound investment
Richmond Hill Hotel, a rural retreat on the outskirts of London, is undergoing a capital investment programme that will assert Richmond as a go-to destination in 2019.
The Georgian townhouse is undergoing a £6.7m refurbishment programme, which will bring the Richmond hotel up to 144 bedrooms. Each of the 69 Georgian bedrooms are being individually designed with a nod to the local character, history and tradition of the town.
The hotel has been meticulous with its design detail, and will use British and local artisans and cabinet makers. The refurbishment programme has been devised by award-winning K&H Design, who have drawn on Richmond’s wider influences that have inspired artists and writers for hundreds of years.
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.
Diane Tapner-Evans, general manager at Richmond Hill Hotel, commented: “Richmond has been a source of inspiration for world famous artists and writers over the years, and we have used these influences throughout the design process.
“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.”
