The Lalit London, which is planned to open in late 2016, will combine Indian culture and cuisine with Victorian architecture. The hotel will be located in a grade II-listed property in Queen Elizabeth Street near Tower Bridge, which originally housed St Olave's Grammar School and more recently, Lambeth College.

The boutique, five-star property will have 70 rooms, almost all of which will be different in design and layout. The old headmaster’s room on the first floor will also be converted into a luxury suite.

The centrepiece of the hotel will be the former great hall, where the timber panelling, vaulted ceiling and gallery is being restored to house The Lalit London’s pan Indian restaurant, Baluchi. The former governors’ room is also being converted into a cocktail bar.

Other facilities at the hotel will include the Rejuve spa, a state-of-the-art gym and a terrace for al fresco dining.
