A new luxury hospitality brand is to kick off in the UK with a remake of a hotel in the tourism hotspot of Hampton Court.
The Mitre, Hampton Court will be the first hotel from The Signet Collection and is set to open in mid-September.
The hotel will be within a Grade II-listed property that dates back to 1665 and was originally used as ancillary accommodation for guests of King Henry VIII at Hampton Court Palace.
Set on the Thames, the 36-bedroom hotel will include a 60-cover riverside all-day dining and wine bar, a 70-cover brasserie and bar, a 60-cover Orangery, a large riverside terrace, meeting rooms and private dining areas.
The plan is to have around five hotels in The Signet Collection, with the next hotel coming early in 2021.
Behind the brand is Hector Ross, former chief executive officer of Beaverbrook, the high-end country-house hotel in Surrey, and the hotels also share a designer connection in Nicola Harding, the interior designer for The Mitre, who also helped create Beaverbrook.
