Likemost hotel openings there has been some confusion over dates at the London Belgraves – the first Thompson hotel in the capital. The opening was originally planned for January although a quick check on the website found bookings are only being taken from 1st February onwards and unless it’s fully booked (which we doubt) it looks like this will be the day it opens.
The hotel will be located in Belgravia close to Hyde Park, Sloane Square, Knightsbridge and the transport hub Victoria. The interiors are being designed by Tara Benard and the theme is Rough Luxury with peeling wallpaper and flea market finds alongside luxury furniture and chic modern touches.
The 85-room hotel has seven different room types and a restaurant and bar by Mark Hix which is being designed in the same “eclectic” style as the rest of the hotel. The cheapest room we could find online was around £235 per night for a King Deluxe Room, and if they are anything like the press shots they”ll be pretty swish.
