Duke of Richmond
The dramatic and stylish refurbishment has been overseen by the President and Founder Mrs Beatrice Tollman who has elegantly transformed the hotel with her redesigns to the public areas, bar and restaurant, conference facilities and a significant number of bedrooms.
The hotel’s lobby is now a contemporary black and white space and opens on to a chic new residents’ lounge, also monochrome in colouring, with an ornate fireplace to sit by whilst enjoying afternoon tea or lingering over a couple of drinks in the evening.
The new Leopard Bar and Restaurant is sure to become one of Guernsey’s most popular destinations offering delicious cocktails, a wide selection of fine wines and the finest quality cuisine in chic surroundings. With superb views of St Peter Port Harbour and neighbouring islands the conservatory and outdoor terrace are perfect for al fresco dining.
A significant proportion of the hotel’s 71 bedrooms have been completely renovated, including the stunning penthouse “Sarnia Suite” on the top floor, with panoramic ocean views plus three Junior Suites each with a private terrace. Each room has been individually and uniquely designed with an eclectic mix of contemporary and original art work.
Commenting on the renovation, Jonathan Raggett, Managing Director of Red Carnation Hotels, said: “I am extremely excited and proud to be reopening Duke of Richmond with such a stunning new look. Mrs Tollman and her dedicated design team have truly given it the Red Carnation touch and put so much thought and care into the refurbishment. I can confidently say that both regular and new guests alike will be blown away by this contemporary look”.
The Four Star hotel is situated beside Candie Gardens, and overlooking Cambridge Park and St Peter Port harbour, is perfectly located for a stay on the island of Guernsey.
The Duke of Richmond is the most recent addition to Red Carnation Hotels which now boast fourteen luxury award winning boutique hotels in London, Dorset, Guernsey, Geneva, Florida and South Africa.
