Heritage Reborn: The Lanesborough London Hotel Reopens
A landmark destination for those living in the UK or flying in from further afield, The Lanesborough London has been the gem of the British hotel scene for as long as we can remember.
Now part of the Oetker Collection, the luxury London hotel has recently reopened its doors after an 18 month long renovation project – the result, a masterpiece property that reinstates it as the jewel in the crown of both Mayfair and Knightsbridge.
One of the last projects taken on by the late interior designer Alberto Pinto, The Lanesborough overlooks Hyde Park Corner and sits adjacent to the grounds of Buckingham Palace making it an iconic place to stay in a prestigious location.
The hotel now comprises of 93 rooms and suites including The Royal Suite – the largest suite in London with seven bedrooms and bathrooms, two living rooms and a dining room. All guests of the hotel have a private butler, with a fleet of 23 catering to guests’ every whim.
In addition to enjoying stunning interior design with charm, character and class at its heart, the re-launch includes the opening of new restaurant Céleste. Under the guidance of Executive Chef Florian Favario, protégé of Le Bristol’s three-Michelin starred Chef Patron Eric Frechon, Céleste’s menu draws on traditional French ‘savoir faire’ whilst championing the finest in British produce, and offers everything from an informal lunch and traditional afternoon tea to fine dining for dinner.
The introduction of Eric Frechon as Chef is a major milestone for the luxury hotel. Known for his work with Le Bristol Paris, Eric is renowned for utilising the finest ingredients to ensure gourmet craftsmanship with every single dish. He will be overseeing the menu in the restaurant at The Lanesborough bringing the creativity he is acclaimed for to their loyal clientele.
After dinner guests can retire to The Library Bar or the hotel’s cigar lounge, The Garden Room, both suitably grand settings for informal drinks.
A stay at The Lanesborough starts at £720 per room, per night. To discover more about its refurbishment or to book a long or short stay in London, please visit www.lanesborough.com.
