Richmond Hill Hotel, a rural retreat on London’s leafy doorstep, is undergoing a capital investment
programme that will assert Richmond as a go to destination in 2019.
The Georgian townhouse is undergoing a £6.7 million refurbishment programme, which will see the
Richmond hotel stand proud as a 144 bedroom property. Each of the 69 Georgian bedrooms are
being individually designed with a nod to the local character, history and tradition of Richmond and
will complement the contemporary ‘Hill Collection’ rooms. The interiors will draw upon existing
characteristics to create clean line silhouettes and an overarching sense of tranquillity. A Georgian
colour palate has been used throughout and Richmond designer blacksmith Joshua de Lisle has been
commissioned to create bespoke detailing in the bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.
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. Bedrooms feature Heal’s king-size beds with furniture commissioned to fit within each of
the individual room styles. Deep free-standing baths or spacious walk in showers will further
enhance the familial townhouse experience.
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
Richmond Hill Hotel is also undertaking a major remodelling of its food and beverage outlet bringing
a new all-day dining destination to the village. Designed by award-winning Russell Sage Studio, the
space has been devised as a place to kick back, to brunch, lunch or dine, or celebrate a milestone.
The club like feel is also set to become a new space for today’s working lifestyle.
Diane Tapner-Evans, General Manager at Richmond Hill Hotel, says: “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.”
Richmond Hill Hotel is a longstanding popular destination due to its versatile facilities and proximity
to Heathrow and Central London. At the edge of Richmond Park, the hotel affords guests 2,500 acres
of greenery and commanding views of the Thames.
