A 3.3m-high ceiling is adorned with Victorian stucco plasterwork and a Grade-II listed minstrels’ gallery features a low plaster relief of putti by Sir George Frampton, who is best known for his statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. Recently refurbished in sumptuous hues of cream, taupe and gold, the Tudor Suite is a feast for the eyes. Wherever you look, you’ll find stunning décor and magnificent architectural detailing. Tudor Suite President of the Red Carnation Hotels group Beatrice Tollman took personal charge of the revamp, changing darker woods and deep red hues to more calming tones to give the suite a more serene feel. The centrepiece is a gold four poster bed, brought to London from Sotheby’s in New York. It is made up with Savoir bedding, famous for its cloud-like comfort.
