Great hotels demand great design

In 2015, Ward Robinson is proud to be celebrating 10 years of transforming the interiors of Northcote Hotel from a six bedroom humble abode to the 26 bedroom luxury destination it is today.

Following 18 months of extensive renovations to the restaurant, cocktail bar, lounges, Louis Roederer Private Dining Rooms as well as additional bedrooms, Northcote has become one of the leading properties in the UK with a Michelin star and many accolades to its name.

The final phase of work concluded at Christmas with the opening of 8 luxury suites in the new Garden Lodge built within the grounds of the hotel.

 ‘The wow factor – that’s what we wanted to bring to Northcote with our design update,’ says Managing Director Craig Bancroft. Describing the new cocktail lounge he adds ‘previously it was all brown leather like a gentleman’s club; now it’s like a high-end London cocktail bar’. The interior of the new restaurant exudes luxurious yet relaxed style however was designed to be a backdrop for Nigel Haworth’s exquisite food which was the inspiration.

Ward Robinson continues to celebrate this month dining at Northcote’s 15th annual festival ‘Obsession’ where world class chefs and sommeliers prepare the best food and wine from local producers and growers.
