A Georgian townhouse in Richmond is undergoing a capital investment programme that will affirm Richmond as a go to destination in 2019.

Richmond Hill Hotel is undergoing a £6.7 million refurbishment programme, which will see the hotel increase to a 144 bedroom property. Each of the 69 Georgian bedrooms will be individually designed with the local character, history and tradition of Richmond.

These rooms will complement the modern 'Hill Collection' rooms. The hotel will use local artisans and cabinet makers during the refurbishment programme, which has been thought up by K&H Design.

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.

Richmond Hill Hotel is also undertaking a major remodelling of its food and drink menus, bringing a new all-day dining destination.

Diane Tapner-Evans, general manager at Richmond Hill Hotel, said: “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 gives guests 2,500 acres of greenery and commanding views of the Thames.
