Luxury London property The Goring Hotel will close tomorrow (27 January) for a 'designer renovation' before reopening in February for its 105th birthday celebrations.

The renovation has involved four interior designers; Nina Campbell, Tim Gosling, David Linley and Russell Sage, who between them have redesigned the suites, the bar and lounge, the terrace, and the dining room. 

The Belgravia hotel has gained a number of new handmade wallpapers and fabrics, and in the front hall artists from Fromental will create a hand-painted scene.

As well as the new design, the reopening of the hotel will see the arrival of "footmen in full regalia", an in-room evening cocktail service, and a new éclair trolley added to the afternoon tea offering.

This will be the first time the 105-year hotel has closed, having previously remained open through both World Wars.
