The newly-renovated Kings Arms Hotel will open this August, complete with a restaurant manned by Michelin-starred chef, Mark Kempson.
This striking Grade II Listed, 18th century property is ideally located between Bushy Park and the maze of the Royal Hampton Court Palace.
Following an extensive renovation, the lounge and reception create a calming arrival experience for guests, with a pink and pale grey palette, antique furnishings and an abundance of greenery.
In the bar, warm indigo velvet is dappled with ochre light flooding in through the gold-toned stained glass windows.
All 14 bedrooms have been lovingly renovated to create a feature of the unique proportions expected with such a mature property. Inspired by the hues of the surrounding landscape, rich bottle greens, smokey blues and warming pinks are carried from the fabrics and botanical-print curtains, right through to the handmade mosaic tiles used in the rain showers.
In The Six Restaurant, pale walls are lined with deep navy banquettes and, in keeping with the period style of the property, the original wooden fireplace has been beautifully restored.
The Six Restaurant will feature a menu designed Chef Kempson and the kitchens will be headed up by Head Chef Jack Scoines. Local produce will be championed, with a menu that nods to traditional British cuisine but with a modern twist.
Championing British and locally sourced materials was an important factor when reimagining the hotel and restaurant. Many of the suppliers are local to the property, including fabrics from British manufacturer, Angel & Boho, and small local business, Jenny Betts, creating skincare products for each of the guest rooms.
Local businesswoman, Christine Wilford, from Green Arden has also createed a striking private terrace at the front of the restaurant where guests can eat and drink while enjoying the lush and green surroundings.
