The luxury, family-owned Belgravia property closed in January for the first time in its history, so a team of British craftsmen, painters, artists, designers and guilders could go to work on a revamped interior, including a new Front Hall designed by Russell Sage with bespoke, hand-painted Fromental wallpaper.

The reopening also sees the arrival of a fleet of footmen, 'channelling Downton Abbey luxury and true-blue aristocratic service'.
 
Jeremy Goring, great-grandson of founder Otto Goring, said: "Sorry we had to close, but it was worth it. The whole hotel is gleaming for our 105th birthday and the new Front Hall is gorgeous. It’s what we are all about. It’s luxurious and glamorous, it recognises our past, but it’s also sophisticated and very contemporary. And most important of all, I think it will make our guests smile."
